Immaculate property with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

The property has the most stunning views of the mountains and Lakes Piano and Lugano. It also has a great pool in lovely gardens. Yvonne was very helpful and the property had everything we needed and more. The appartment is in a fantastic position for touring the area, there are many lovely places to visit around Lake Como and we also took a day trip to Switzerland. Every morning we walked to the quaint village of Carlazzo (which only takes a few minutes) to buy fresh bread and supplies. I would definately recommend this property and would love to go back there ourselves one day.

Dramatic Scenery

  • 5 of 5

My family, consisting of 2 adults and 2 children, boys of 15 and 9, stayed here in August this being the first time we have rented a private apartment. The apartment was beautiful, comfortable furnishings, extremely well equipped kitchen with dishwasher and a washing machine and very clean. The balcony in our apartment had fantastic views down to Lake Piano and across to Lake Lugano. The gardens and pool were immaculate with plenty of sunbeds and individual private seating areas for each apartment. The views were outstanding and the location was peaceful with no passing traffic as you are at the end of a road but within walking distance of shops where you can get excellent fresh produce and the Villa is very secure. Plenty to do either at Lake Piano, Porlezza or Lake Como, which are nearby. There are some excellent restaurants in Porlezza and Menaggio and there are leaflets, maps etc in the apartment to assist you. The Owner, Yvonne, is amazing, her attention to detail in the apartments and gardens is second to none and her thoughtfulness generally really made our holiday special and we will definitely be returning.

A relaxing place

  • 4 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay here. The building is a charming Italian stone house situated in the mountains between the lake Como and the lake Lugano, just 10-15 min drive from lovely Mennagio at the lake Como. The pool area has a nice view over the valley and especially the kids loved the pool! The building is in a quiet area and the surroundings are relaxing. A small Italian village with ice-cream and fresh Parma ham is just 5 min walk away. The landlord is friendly and hospitable! We really enjoyed our stay here.

Ferienhaus noch besser als abgebildet

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen wunderschönen Urlaub. Das Appartment hat unserer Erwartungen mehr als erfüllt. Hochwertige Ausstattung, einwandfreie Sauberkeit, alles funktionsfähig und einen phantastischen Blick von dem Appartment aus. Mittags konnte man schon unter Palmen am Pool liegen (mir war es noch zu kalt zum schwimmen) und auf die schneebedeckten Berggipfel blicken.Unsere Gastgeberin beeindruckte uns durch ihre hilfsbereite und zuvorkommende Art und ihre hervorragenden Sprachkenntnisse. Wir werden wiederkommen und können die Unterkunft uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen.
