About the property

Our free-standing comfortable holiday home is on the verge of Morcote on a hillside plot with open views over Lake Lugano. Behind the property adjoins the forest. There are two terraces, a covered portico, so you can always find a sheltered shady spot. There is a large living room with dining area, two bedrooms, a nursery. All rooms have a wonderful view of Lake Lugano. The kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher, fridge, oven and plenty of dishes. In the basement there is a Miele washing machine.

In the nursery there are built-in flyscreen blinds and blackout curtains.

While swimming in the 7-meter swimming pool you can enjoy the full panorama.

The house is located in a very good, clean condition, because constantly repairs and improvements are carried out.

In urgent cases, there is a local contact.

Wunderbares Haus mit herrlichem Blick

  • 5 of 5

Wir fühlten uns in dem Haus wie in einem modernen Hotel, aber mit eigenem Schwimmbad und großzügig ausgestatteter Küche. Wir sind nicht einmal in ein Restaurant gegangen, weil hier oben kein Blick und keine Terrasse zu überbieten ist.

charmantes Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

charmantes Haus in Höhe der Kirche von Morcote mit einer großen gedeckten und einer freien Terrasse mit wunderschönem weitem Blick über den Luganer See nach Italien hinein. Der Garten mit seinen blühenden Kamelien, Azaleen, Hortensien und Palmen vermittelte ein südländisches Flair. Innen ist das Haus gepflegt, freundlich und individuell ausgestattet; man merkt, dass die Eigentümer auch selbst hier ihre Ferien verbringen. Die Haushaltsgeräte sind auf dem neuesten Stand.

Wir haben wirklich schöne Ferien in 'La Montanina' verbracht und werden gern wiederkommen!

La Montanina

  • 5 of 5

Im Wettbewerb um die schönste Lage eines Ferienhauses rund um den Lago di Lugano steht "La Montanina" eindeutig ganz oben auf dem Treppchen - und das im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes: Der Blick auf den See und die gegenüber liegende italienische Küste könnte schöner nicht sein, sei´s aus dem hübschen Balkonzimmer, sei´s von der Terrasse oder dem bei großer Hitze kühlen Schatten spendenden Portico. Einrichtung und Ausstattung sind angenehm und funktional, die Küche lässt die Zubereitung auch mehrgängiger Menus für Familien bzw. Gäste zu, der Sprung in den gepflegten Pool nach einer langen Wanderung war eine willkommene Erfrischung! Der Kamin macht Lust, schon bald wiederzukommen und das Tessin zu jeder Jahreszeit zu genießen. Last but not least ist Morcote mit seinen romantischen Arkaden, der Uferpromenade und den hübschen Restaurants einer der reizvollsten Orte der Region. Daher alles in allem: 5 Sterne plus (gibt es ja als Hotelkategorie!).

The house is situated in a quiet area. One can in 20 minutes. to walk on a panorama road in the village. When down goes directly to the lake or going to get to the port and the public swimming pool with bathing island and restaurant.
