About Michaela Müller

I'm german-born, my husband italian-born. We live in our villa in Porza since 1995. As our 3 children are grown-up and flew out of the net, it would be a pity to leave our house empty. So we're letting the groundfloor-apartment with direct access to the beautiful private garden and are looking forward to welcome you at our home!

Michaela Müller purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Michaela Müller chose Porza

Amazing view on Lake Lugano and beautiful indoor-swimmingpool. With love furnished apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

Exclusive neighborhood of stately mansions. Peaceful and quiet position but near to the city.

Simply Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Michaela's enchanting home, high up on the hillside in Porza, is elegant and peaceful...a perfect place to relax after a day of sightseeing and shopping. The bus is a few steps away from her home, and is a very easy trip to the center of Lugano. I cannot say enough about this incredible home!!

Our wonderful stay at a Swiss villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is the best vacation rental that we have ever stayed in. Both my wife and I were amazed at the spectacular view and generous size of the apartment. It occupies an entire floor with two bed rooms and a large garden overlooking beautiful Lake Lugano. The unit is nicely furnished and immaculately clean. The town of Lugano is absolutely charming with excellent restaurants and friendly locals. There are plenty of lake activities and the shopping is world class. The owner has two other properties, one in St. Moritz and another on nearby Lake Como. We're looking forward to staying at both of them in near future.

Sehr netter Empfang durch die Vermieterin Michaela, wunderschöne Aussicht auf den Luganersee, der überdeckte Sitzplatz und das Hallenbad sind bei Regen, mehr als Gold wert. Für uns war es Perfekt! Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder! :-)

You won't be disappointed-- breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

Three friends and I had a wonderful stay at this apartment. It was spacious, comfortable--- and you couldn't have asked for a more spectacular view! Totally breathtaking and soul-lifting. The owner was more than helpful, offering many suggestions for activities. The business aspects went very smoothly. You won't be disappointed. I'm currently considering some of this owner's other holiday locations. Enjoy!

Wunderschoene Aussicht, ruhige und bequeme Villa

  • 5 of 5

Einen vollen Monat haben wir in dieser schoenen Villa verbracht. Die Aussicht ist unglaublich schoen. Die Villa ist sehr huebsch, gepflegt und sauber. Die Lage ist unique - in wenigen Minuten ist man im Walde, wo man sowohl spazierengehen, als auch joggen kann. Das Zentrum der Stadt is etwa 10 Minuten ( mit Auto) oder 50 Minuten zu Fuss entfernt. Sehr ruhig, still und bequem - und dazu der vielleicht schoenste Blick zum See!
