Great convenient place!

5 of 5
The apartment has everything you could need. It was very clean and was so convenient with parking right out front and the access on the ground floor. Bed was very comfortable and the apartment was very child friendly with our 2 little ones. We will definitely stay again!

Fantastic place

5 of 5
We had an amazing time here. The owner, Esther, is quick to reply and answered all of our questions. We had 8 nights here and this is a good amount of nights for exploring the region. The apartment is really nice. We were 4 adults here. 1 bedroom with double bed and 2 beds in the livingroom. 2 bathrooms and a kitchen with all supplies. A fantastic balcony with a stunning view looking over Lake Lugano. It took 10-15 min to drive to Lugano. I would recommend to have a car here. I would definitely recommend this place and I felt secure about payment all the time. Our biggest recommendations.
