We were so afraid we could not trust the pictures when we booked this place, because it all looked so beautiful! We were not disappointed in the least! Michaela greeted us with such warmth, chocolate treats and a bottle of Prosecco, that after a fantastic scenic drive from Lausanne, we felt we were truly coming home! Not only is the view truly spectacular, you are only 10-15 minutes from the lake shore, and closer to shopping area. The house has all the amenities you could ask for, the beds were really comfortable, the place very clean. There is a covered very long pool, all with that spectacular view. Lugano, and in particular this house, was the perfect place to both be active, visit, drive to Ascona, Como and Bellagio on the Italian side, and rest at the same time in perfect silence except for birds chirping. We felt we were in heaven. Highly recommend it.
The view to mountains Monte Bré and Monte San Salvatore from the villa's terrace is picturesque. The location near the Lugano attractions is wonderful - they can be reached in no time at all. The owner - Michaela - was very kind and helpful. This villa is absolutely a place worth of a visit!
This villa is incredible, I hope we get the chance to come back over and over again! The amenities say it all, but just to reiterate -- there are three full bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a nearly private pool (share with your host), the living space includes a formal dining room with seating for four, a kitchen dining table for six, an outdoor dining table for 6 with a barbecue (yes, you can use it), another outdoor dining table in the pool area, full living room, comfy terrace with an incredible view, and another comfy space in the pool area. Ping pong table is available, you have access to laundry machines, and of course a FULL kitchen. You're up on a hillside, so of course you must drive up a bit of a narrow mountain road, but it's a short distance and so worth it! We saved a ton of money shopping at the grocery store and cooking for ourselves (Migros and Coop just near each other in town, Migrolino also nearby in a Shell station if you're shopping late -- the others close around 6 or 7pm). The home is extremely well built, very quiet, stunning view, and the host is amazing! HIGHLY recommend!

My wife and I stayed here for our 30th Anniversary in October 2016. The facility was exceptionally clean and furnished and we enjoyed the villa so much we stayed in and cooked local produce every night except our Anniversary. The host family was very helpful, even to the point of their son, Christopher, lending us equipment so that our American computers and telephones could be recharged. A truly lovely place with fantastic views.
