Open slowly the door house and take few steps in.. immediately, right in front of you, a wonderful view will catch your look. The house is placed in an area surrounded by an incredible natural framework, a perfect place for a family, a couple or even a single person to relax and restore. Furthermore it is also set in a strategical position since Lugano city and Lake Como attractions are just 20/25min driving from the house. ** CLEAN & SANITAZE: we follow the cleaning protocol indicated by Airbnb
“We really liked Mattia and Elisabetta. Especially the location of the cottage is fantastic: in the middle of Puria, an ancient, small Berdorf, where practically every house enjoys a wonderful lake view. We were there at the end of October, the weather was bad, but being in the middle of nature, that did not matter. If we did not hike, we collected and cooked chestnuts, observed fire salamanders, watched or read Netflix. We also completed a great pizza course in Como (booked via AirBnB at Umberto, highly recommended!). Puria is still quite alive, there is a small shop 20 meters from the house, where you get everything (except oatmeal), which is a huge relief, otherwise you have to drive down endless serpentines to the lakeshore and then from there again 15 Minutes to Porlezza needs to shop in a supermarket. On the other hand, a living village also means that it is not deathly quiet; the neighbor on the left repairs Vespas, the neighbor below (a locksmith?) likes to use his angle grinder outdoors. But you have as good as no traffic noise, because through the narrow streets fit a maximum of a Fiat 500 or a moped. You can not hear the roads in the valley, only the mountain stream rushes in the gorge to the right. The house feels more like a small apartment, because you are only on one floor. The lower floor seems to me to be a shell, which can be used as a temporary terrace. But it was already too cold for us. The bedroom has a huge wardrobe, which nobody needs, but the beds are the smaller: only 1.90 m long, which for me as an adult a bit too short. Besides, they squeaked horribly. You do not have a view from there. The sofa in the living-dining area can be folded out and the room can be darkened with shutters. As a family you can cope with the small size of the apartment, as long as the weather is good. I do not want to have to spend three days of rain at one go with two children in this flat, she is too small for that. The kitchen is relatively well stocked, if not rich. If you want to cook something more elaborate, you have to improvise. The decor of the apartment was a bit old, but you do not pay much rent. I hope Mattia keeps his promise and buys a new sofa bed;). The one we slept on squeaked horribly and we were afraid that she would fall apart when she collapsed. The view and the location makes up for a lot! You can actually walk right in the village, the view of the lake is really great and the south facing you have the sun all day (as long as it shines, which is very welcome at least in spring and fall). Our most beautiful experiences: - the view from the "Hausberg" (Alpe Mapel) - the pizza-baking course at Umberto - Deer watching with binoculars on Lago Piano near Porlezza - the constant changing of the panorama through clouds, sun and rain”
Beautiful lake view apartment in the ancient village of Cima di Porlezza, a beautiful village directly overlooking Lake Lugano, the apartment has a lake garden with direct access to the lake. In the village you will find everything you need from the baker, market, bar, restaurant and pizzeria. The apartment is a few minutes from Porlezza and Switzerland, Lugano "the pearl of the lake" is the first Swiss city that you meet and it is wonderful.

“A small oasis in the countryside, not far from Lugano. "Luxury camping" with comfortable extras, such as outdoor shower, running water and outdoor toilet. Gianluca provided soft mattresses, sleeping bags, inflatable cushions and towels. About 10 minutes walk through the forest from the public car park. Gianluca was so kind to pick us up and show us the way.”
