About Michaela Müller

I'm german-born, my husband italian-born. We live in our villa in Porza since 1995. As our 3 children are grown-up and flew out of the net, it would be a pity to leave our house empty. So we're letting the groundfloor-apartment with direct access to the beautiful private garden and are looking forward to welcome you at our home!

Michaela Müller purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Michaela Müller chose Porza

Amazing view on Lake Lugano and beautiful indoor-swimmingpool. With love furnished apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

Exclusive neighborhood of stately mansions. Peaceful and quiet position but near to the city.

  • 5 of 5

As a group of six - one family of four and two grandparents - we were looking for a place that would comfortably accommodate everyone. This villa was a real treat! We had plenty of space for the kids to run around and play and really enjoyed the ability to cook our own meals and BBQ. The indoor pool was such a bonus and we felt really spoiled being able to come back after a long, hot day and cool off in the pool. The washer/dryer was also a major incentive. I would highly recommend this villa for families looking for a relaxing vacation where their kids can be kids and for those who might want a bit more space to spread out. Michaela, the owner, was a delight and real pleasure to work with.

I would definitely recommend this home for a peaceful getaway.

Thank you Michaela.

Simply Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Michaela's enchanting home, high up on the hillside in Porza, is elegant and peaceful...a perfect place to relax after a day of sightseeing and shopping. The bus is a few steps away from her home, and is a very easy trip to the center of Lugano. I cannot say enough about this incredible home!!

Wunderschöne Aussicht, tolle Terrasse - Wohnung eher enttäuschend

  • 3 of 5

Die Wohnung liegt ca 5 km von Lugano entfernt. Für Familien ungeeignet. Radfahren ist nur für geübte Mountainbiker möglich, da man immer durch die Stadt muss (Steigung ca. 20%) und sehr enge viel befahrene Straßen.

Aussicht und Terrasse sind toll. Das Schwimmbad ist groß und schön.

Die Einrichtung der Wohnung ist allerdings nicht empfehlenswert. Die Möbel sind alt, im Wohnzimmer auch etwas muffig, die Gartenliegen sind kaputt, die Stühl abgewetzt, alles so als ob sich niemand so recht drum kümmert.

Es gibt nur ein Schlafzimmer mit großem Ehebett. Das 2. Schlafzimmer hat 2 Schrankbetten (max 1,90 m lang). Das dritte Schlafzimmer hat 2 Einzelbetten die vor einer Schrankwand stehen. Fast alle Schränke sind mit alten Sachen der Eigentümer vollgestopft! Man kann am Flur seine Kleider unterbringen.

Mein Fazit: Wunderschöne Landschaft, bei schönem Wetter kann man viel unternehmen. Man sollte mit dem Auto anreisen. Die Wohnung ist zu dem Preis eher nicht zu empfehlen.

Owner's Response: Liebe Familie Kössler, es tut mir sehr leid, dass unsere Wohnung nicht Ihren Vorstellungen entsprochen hat. Bitte erlauben Sie mir kurz auf Ihre Kritik einzugehen. Niemand konnte bis jetzt einen muffigen Geruch im Wohnzimmer oder woanders feststellen. Die Möbel sind nicht alt und abgewetzt, es handelt sich z.T. um Stilmöbel. Selbstverständlich ist das nicht Jedermanns Geschmack. Sie konnten sich ja die (unmanipulierten) Fotos auf der FeWo-Seite ansehen. Wie Ihnen mitgeteilt, vermieten wir normalerweise die Wohnung mit 2 Schlafzimmern (mit jeweils 2 grossen Doppelbetten). Ursprünglich hatten Sie für 2 Erwachsene und 2 Kinder gebucht. Nachdem auch Ihre Eltern mitkommen wollten, habe ich Ihnen das 3. Zimmer (normalerweise für Kinder gedacht) kostenlos zur Verfügung gestellt. Daher erscheint mir auch der Preis nicht überhöht (für insgesamt 6 Personen). Ausserdem haben es bis jetzt alle Gäste geschätzt, nicht in eine sterile und halbleere Wohnung zu kommen, sondern in eine Wohnung mit eigenem Flair und persönlichen Gegenständen. Ich bedauere wirklich sehr, dass Sie sich bei uns nicht wohlgefühlt haben, da das Wohl der Gäste bei uns an erster Stelle steht und wir alles dazutun, um den Gästen einen wunderschönen Urlaub bei uns zu ermöglichen. Mit freundlichen Grüssen, Michaela Müller-Puricelli

Schoene Wohnung in schoener Lage!

  • 5 of 5

Unsere Familie verbrachte 4 Tage in der Wohnung. Sie befindet sich in einer sehr ruhingen Lage mit toller See-Sicht. Die Wohnung ist sehr gross, und hat auch noch einen tollen indoor pool. Die Wohnung war sehr sauber ist mit allem ausgestattet was man so im Urlaub braucht. Die Besitzerin war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Sollte sich die Gelegenheit ergeben, werden wir mit Sicherheit nochmals die gleiche Wohnung in Lugano/Porza waehlen.

Our wonderful stay at a Swiss villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is the best vacation rental that we have ever stayed in. Both my wife and I were amazed at the spectacular view and generous size of the apartment. It occupies an entire floor with two bed rooms and a large garden overlooking beautiful Lake Lugano. The unit is nicely furnished and immaculately clean. The town of Lugano is absolutely charming with excellent restaurants and friendly locals. There are plenty of lake activities and the shopping is world class. The owner has two other properties, one in St. Moritz and another on nearby Lake Como. We're looking forward to staying at both of them in near future.
