This is a spacious, clean apartment in a small town right on Lake Lugano. Delightful small balcony gives stunning views over the lake. Lovely welcome even though we were delayed with our arrival. Property has everything you need (except may be a kettle!) large comfortable bed, large bathroom. Town is small with only a small shop, but this stocks most basics and is great for the fresh break meat and cheese. Larger supermarkets 6km away in Porlezza. You are able to park close by to drop off and load bags, but car parking is a 5 minute walk away in small free public car park. Never an issue getting a space. We would certainly return.
Molly and Giovanni couldn't have been more welcoming, both before and during our stay. We felt they were interested in us as people, rather than merely customers or guests. The property was very clean and had a comfortable bed. There are views of the lake both from the property and the nearby garden. We felt at home from the moment we had unpacked, and started to relax immediately. The property is well located in the centre of a friendly village and is close to some wonderful walks. There is an excellent hypermarket at Porlezza, about 15 minutes away by car. Being able to walk to and swim in the lake was an unexpected bonus. Despite being in the centre of a lively village we were only disturbed by noise on one night, and that was by a massive and spectacular thunderstorm over the lake! The village is on a steep hillside and the property is only accessible on foot, about 50 steps down from the parking. Not a problem for us, but important to be aware if you have mobility problems. Also, don't make the mistake we did by only taking Euros. The property is only a mile or so from the Swiss border and if you want to visit anywhere in Switzerland you will at the very least need some Swiss franc coins for parking. Having said that, the petrol stations just before crossing into Italy were happy to exchange Euros although presumably not at a brilliant rate.
