This was one of the most beautiful places we stayed in our 2 months of travelling in Italy and Switzerland! The apartment is cozy, modern and well appointed, in contrast with the outside medieval town it's located in. The views are spectacular and Lake Lugano is extremely scenic; our tour of the lake by boat was one of the highlights. From this point we could reach more places then we had time to visit and the city of Lugano was only a 15 min. drive away. The host, Max, was very helpful with any questions we had and we thank him and his son Eduardo,for making this piece of our vacation really interesting. Even the old stairs, ever present in this mountainous villages were a treat for us; with the great food all around us, it's nice to have an easy way to exercise. Would be back in a heartbeat!

Some of Our Best Memories!

  • 5 of 5

We began our stay in Italy in this vacation rental. It was incredible! The owner was so kind, friendly, and helpful. We enjoyed chatting with him! The apartment is gorgeous--beautifully decorated, and exceptionally clean. The views were amazing. It was the perfect get-away-from-it-all place. The drive up to the apartment was a bit harrowing, but those were our first days driving in Italy! There is a lovely little garden where we enjoyed having tea. We can't wait to return!

Ideale per tranquillità ed escursioni

  • 5 of 5

Tutto bellissimo! Innanzitutto il proprietario gentilissimo e disponibilissimo! La vista sul borgo e sul lago! I dintorni! La gita sul lago! La vicinanza di Lugano! La raggiungibilità del lago di Como e Maggiore! La casa pulita ed accogliente! Prendendo la macchina si arriva alla bella cittadina di Porlezza con supermercati, spiaggia, e qualche locale. Siamo anche stati fortunati che in due settimane non è mai piovuto! Insomma, da tornarci!

Nette Wohnung in authentischer Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zu dritt eine nette Woche in der sehr gut ausgestatteten Wohnung verbracht. Man parkt sein Auto am Dorfrand und begibt sich dann in das nette (Dorf-)Labyrinth. Der Vermieter ist sehr freundlich und hat uns gerne Tipps gegeben. Vom Garten - sehr geeignet zum (Gas-)Grillen - hat man einen schönen Blick auf den See. Die nächste schöne Schwimmmöglichkeit ist im Nachbardorf San Mamete; ansonsten in Porlezza, in Begna am Wasserfall, in Osteno bzw. im Lago di Piano (allerdings alles mit dem Auto zu machen). Gute Supermärkte in Porlezza - im kleinen Laden unten im Dorf waren wir leider nie einkaufen. Lugano ist als Ausflugsziel direkt in der Nähe, ebenso der Comer See bzw. der Lago Maggiore. Wer einfach ein wenig Wandern/Spazieren gehen kombiniert mit Schwimmen in netter Atmosphäre haben möchte, ist hier richtig aufgehoben.

Vielen Dank nochmal an den Vermieter für die nette Bootstour über den See!

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was beautiful and the view from every window was breathtaking. It was efficiënt and clean. The kitchen and the gas bbq was the perfect place for us to prepare a "home cooked meal" with all the local treasures. The owners : Massimo and Filomena, were verry friendly and kind and take us even on a boat trip on the lake.

You have to walk a hundred meter to the car but this is enjoy every day

Overall our experience was terrific and would encourage anyone to book this property. The location was great if you want to explore the areas of Lugano and Lake Como.

Alles prima

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit unserem kleinen Hund für 10 Tage in der FeWo und können nur loben:

DIe Wohnung finden wir gemütlicher und schöner als auf den Fotos und war sehr sauber. Man hat alles was man so braucht (Kochfeld/Toaster/Micro/Kaffeemaschine/wer will auch WLAN) und nichts was man nicht braucht (Fernseher). Der Vermieter ist sehr nett, hilfsbereit, unaufddringlich. Die Wohnung liegt toll, es führen nur alte, enge Gassen und Treppen durch das direkt an den Hang gebaute Dorf. Dafür kein Strassenlärm, tolle Aussicht, einen kleinen Sitzplatz draussen. Alles in allem genau richtig für Leute, die ein paar entspannte Tage verbringen möchten. Thomas und Dagmar
