                            Beautiful villa, fantastic view

                            5 of 5
                            We had a lovely, peaceful week here. Isabella and Maurizio are both excellent hosts, the house is beautiful and the view outstanding. Would definitely recommend.

                            Perfect expectation

                            5 of 5
                            The condo was everything is was advertised to be. Contemporary, well-cared for interior and modern fixtures and appliances. Two balcony is spectacular with gorgeous view of Lake Lugano, free public beach within a 15 minute walk away. City of Porto Ceresio was only 20 minutes or so by car from Lugano on a very scenic drive and Menaggio on Lake Como was about 30 minutes in the opposite direction. Lake Lugano is a scenic gem by day and by night. Thank you to Oksana & Rene for looking after us so well. We will be back – hopefully for a special anniversary! Would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to family & friends.
