Bright and spacious, the apartments each boast a fully equipped kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and open plan living and dining area. The living area has a sofa bed allowing the property to sleep up to 3 guests. Both have private balconies, equipped with table and chairs. It's the perfect spot for an aperitif or to enjoy a romantic meal taking in the beauty of the lake waters and surrounding mountains. The property is within a pleasant 5 minute walk of the ferry boat landing. Linen and towels are provided for guests use. The property also has high definition Satellite TV, DVD library and music system. Located just 5 minutes from the Swiss border, the property is in a great location for those who plan to do some sightseeing during their stay.

About Jo Mackay

I am a mother with 2 young children, age 8 & 11 and a very busy husband! I gave up work with Procter and Gamble 8 years ago to spend time at home with the children. I have loved being able to spend so much time with them. However, with both children now at school, I was keen to start working again. I initially enjoyed managing two of our own holiday properties in the Italian Lakes which we bought in 2008 and 2009 following our first visit to the area in 2007. However, I have now started to manage holiday homes for others, not just in the Italian Lakes, but elsewhere in Italy through my website - I carefully select each property and ensure that I maintain that personal but professional service level that I believe holidaymakers are looking for.

Jo Mackay purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Jo Mackay chose Valsolda

This is the first property that I have had the pleasure to manage on Lake Lugano. It really is in a wonderful location, in a delightful lakeside setting. San Mamete is a lovely, peaceful place, ideal for those looking for a quiet and relaxing holiday whilst being within easy reach of the main sights and attractions that this area has to offer.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a well equipped apartment. The property is also within walking distance of shops and restaurants.

San Mamete Sept 2016

  • 4 of 5

This well appointed apartment is in an ideal location for a mature couple to have a relaxing holiday in a lovely part of Italy.

Although San Mamete was the perfect location for us we were also not far from other interesting places to visit.

All in all this was an excellent holiday.

Owner's Response: Hi. I am glad you liked the location of the property and appreciated the lake views and proximity to the lakeside but disappointed you didn't like the village of San Mamete. It is a very typical Italian village. We don't provide a change of towels as standard for a stay of less than a week but If guests want a change of towels, we can certainly provide this for them. I am not sure what you mean by no place to sit though as there is seating on the balcony area as well as sofas and chairs inside the apartment itself.
