A fantastic modern rustico retreat on Lake Lugano!

The beautiful property stands in a wonderful garden and is extremely comfortable in its hospitality and features with splendid accommodation arranged thoughtfully and maximising the lake views to the full.

To the ground floor of the house is a Tuscan style open plan kitchen with dining room. The warm earthy tones, open fireplace and solid furniture create a welcoming farmhouse feel and guests can enjoy meals at the dining table with food freshly prepared from the fully fitted kitchen which provides all the necessary appliances for a care free self-catering holiday.

From the kitchen and dining room a door leads to the lake view garden terrace which features a pretty vine covered awning with alfresco dining area. The views from here are spectacular and are the most idyllic and breathtaking of backdrops to memorable dinner parties! Rhododendron lined steps to the side of the house also lead a third informal dining area with a stone built BBQ and bamboo dining furniture.

Indoors from the ground floor kitchen and dining area a spiral staircase leads guests to the first floor living room which boasts direct lake views also! The delightful and sunny room features a beamed ceiling, an inviting fireplace and provides a wonderful place to relax and unwind with sofas and a TV. There is also a sunny balcony to the living room where guests can sit out on with a good book and admire the lush mountains and serene lake.

A sweeping staircase leads guests to the lake view sleeping accommodation which is flexible and family friendly. The double master bedroom is comfortably furnished with draped curtains, Italian chandelier lighting, terracotta tiled floor and a striking floor to ceiling window overlooking the lake.

A second bedroom is ideal for adults sharing with a set of twin single beds which can be pushed together to make a double or left separately. This bedroom also benefits from lovely furnishings and features including a beamed ceiling, terracotta tiled flooring and a floor to ceiling lake view window. A third loft-style bedroom with a set of twin single beds and sloping beamed roof is ideal for children and features views over the garden.

A sofa bed can also be adapted to sleep any additional guests. Two modern fully equipped bathrooms are also situated in the house and laundry facilities are provided for with a washing machine.

Outside the beautiful property the garden is set over two sunny lake view levels with the road level garden featuring a well maintained lawn with covered terrace, sun loungers, a swimming pool and lots of level space for children to run around and play.

Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.. Guests are always welcome, please call beforehand to check course rules. Golf Club Menaggio: (Menaggio Como).

Ski:

This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibility and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.

There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema, not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.

There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.

The closest major ski resorts are St. Moritz and Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx. 100K.
