ideal villa and picturesque place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Porlezza for 13 days and it was ideal vacation for 3 families with small babies and we have to thank Ilonka for our grate vacation at Villa Primula. Villa is ideal place to stay for vacation, and the dream to have such home when we become pensioners. Porlezza itself is very quiet and picturesque place. And off course the view from windows and balcony make every morning unforgatable.

Lake and mountains , i fall in love .

About villa :we liked disaign very much. I liked the colors of the walls and off course the living room was very comfortable for our evenings. Beds are very comfortable, our family lived on the first floor and we enjoyed of its comfort . Bathrooms are brand new and bright. Lake is really 50m close to villa and you can see it from the window and balcony. We liked house very much and return again with grait pleasure.

Tolles Haus & nette Vermieter

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit 7 Erwachsenen & 2 Kindern unter 3 unterwegs. Das Haus ist wirklich sehr schön eingerichtet und hochwertig ausgestattet. Bäder, Betten & Küche waren wirklich top!

Die Loungemöbel im Garten sind super bequem & laden zum Relaxen ein.

Zum See sind es ca 100 Meter - der Pool ist ähnlich weit weg vorne am See beim Restaurant.

Die Vermieterin ist nett & immer zu erreichen, wenn man Fragen hat! Das Haus ist wirklich sehr wirklich zu empfehlen.

Einziger Punkt, der uns etwas gestört hat: Kosten für Bettwäsche & Handtücher (150€ obligatorisch) wurden bei der Buchung über Fewo nicht deutlich erkennbar ausgewiesen. Nicht, dass die Kosten nicht gerechtfertigt sind- nur mehr Transparenz wäre gut. Wobei das eher in Richtung Fewo direkt geht als in Richtung Vermieter.

Unterm Strich haben wir den Urlaub alle wirklich sehr genossen & kommen gerne wieder!!

Een schitterende villa van alle luxe voorzien!

  • 5 of 5

Bij aankomst verrast door de opgemaakte kingsize bedden in de ruime slaapkamers. De villa is erg smaakvol ingericht, aan alles is gedacht. Het was opvallend schoon wat heel fijn is!

We hebben genoten van een heerlijke vakantie! Ontbijten in het zonnetje op het mooie terras. Direct aan het meer gelegen en de boulevard met een gezellige zaterdag markt op loopafstand. Onze gastvrouw Ilonka was zeer begaan en voorzag ons van tips om onze vakantie nog aangenamer te maken. Deze villa is zeker een aanrader!

geschmackvoll eingerichtetes Haus im Park

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt am Park, April erlebten wir die Blüte der Kamelien und umgeben von einer herrlichen Bergkulisse. Wir genossen die erwachende Natur und die kulinarischen Köstlichkeiten wie Pizzeria, Vionthek und auch der Markt im Dorf jeweils am Samstag.

Das Haus ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und alles notwendige ist vorhanden.

Die grosse Lounge sowie den Esstisch auf der Terrasse waren unser Lieblingsplätze für Brunch, Spiele und Lesen. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und .... kommen gerne wieder.

On the southern slopes of the beautiful Italian Alps are Lake Como, Lake Maggiore and Lake Lugano only at short distance from each other. This lake district is situated in a beatiful mountain scenery, rich in natural beauty and cultural sights.

Porlezza is a picturesque village situated on Lake Lugano. Lake Lugano is located between Lake Como and Lake Maggiore.

Porlezza is just 12 km from Menaggio at Lake Como, on the scenic route to the Swiss city of Lugano. Porlezza is the largest village on the east side of Lake Lugano in Italy and gives an Italian flavor to a well known Swiss name!

Gandria, Morcote and Bissone are some of the many authentic villages on Lake Lugano. From Porlezza you can take a boat trip and visit these villages on the lake.

Just above Porlezza is the village of Carlazzo with a rich and ancient history, near the nature reserve that surrounds the ''Piano Lake". With its own castle and medieval fortifications, this village was once well protected. Like most towns and villages around the lakes in this region, Carlazzo has a strong religious tradition, with many churches and monuments. The church of St. Giorgio in nearby Gottro is definitely worth a visit, if only for the Romanesque bell tower. Other interesting churches are St. Stefano, where you can find a famous organ which was made in 1858 by the Serassi family, one of the most famous families of organ builders in Italy and throughout Europe. They practiced six generations the art of building organs between 1720 and 1895 - their name is equivalent to quality, music, Lombardy and Porlezza!

Visit the small village of Castello, near Loggio & Porlezza. This village is built on a rocky outcrop and you will enjoy a fascinating maze of stone houses, narrow streets and small flowering balconies as far as the eye can see. Moreover, here one can admire a magnificent view of the surrounding area and Lake Lugano.

If you take a boat trip on the lake you can experience at your own pace the different perspectives from the upper deck of the romantic steamboat which will stop in picturesque small villages like the idyllic Morcote & Gandria.

Scroll through the hiking trail from Monte Lema to Monte Tamaro. In and around Monte Tamaro one can find so many activities and pursuits, such as the Alpine Coaster Bob, that everyone who likes adventure will find something of his or her liking!

The park Porto Letizia features a reception, boutique, jewelry, hairdresser, cosmetics, children's clothing store, lounge bar with large terrace at the water front, an Italian specialty restaurant, outdoor pool with free sun beds, internet café, park with labyrinth and several playgrounds for children. There is a beach at the lake with sand, a sunbathing area, outdoor showers and beach bar where you can hire sunbeds. The park has lots of parking opportunity.

The village has a romantic promenade with wonderful lake views, terraces, ice cream parlors and shops. Every Saturday is market day in Porlezza. Here you can buy delicious Italian specialties. For daily shopping the local supermarket is nearby. Italians love good food. In the village and its surroundings you will find lots of restaurants. Therefore an open invitation for you and plenty of opportunity to try them. Buon appetito!
