A relaxing waterside holiday retreat - perfect for honeymoons

Located in: Porlezza »
From the road and town it would be easy to miss the villa as it sits alone against the mountain with only a single access gate to hint at what is behind. It is located off the shore road which is not open to through traffic and is therefore peaceful and quiet. Its position is both private and not overlooked with its terraces that enjoy sunshine and stunning, uninterrupted views across Lake Lugano.

The villa is ideal for those wishing to enjoy a relaxing waterside holiday with as much privacy as you could want but also close to the hustle and bustle of towns and the city to satisfy those days when you want to venture out. This property is also perfect for a two-center holiday when combined with a stay in Lake Como - experience the two very different aspects and lifestyles of the lakes.

Out and about: Being just meters from the gorgeous lakeside town of Porlezza you have no need for a car for every day living. There is a nearby marina from which to catch the ferry to the city of Lugano in nearby Switzerland and bus stops to Lugano and Menaggio. From Menaggio you can catch a ferry to Bellagio, Varenna, Tremezzo and of course Como either with a car or on foot.

Porlezza has many lovely bars, restaurants and a good selection of shops or you can simply sit by the lake and marina and soak up the ambiance, or take a walk through the maze of old Italian streets that twist and turn.

Lugano is located at one end of Lake Lugano, just across the border into Switzerland and no more than an hour from Lake Como by car or bus. The town centre is a sympathetic pastiche of new and old and is beautifully kept with many old cobbled streets playing host to some of the very finest shops in the region.

The property: The villetta is accessed from the shore road through a private wrought iron gate that provides total privacy from the odd passer by. Through the gate you go up a few stone steps onto the panoramic terrace that sits a few metres above the lake.

On the terrace there is more than ample space with table and chairs, sun beds and a hammock for those lazy sunny days and al fresco dining. This inside/outside terrace truly is a haven of intimacy with incredible views of the surrounding shore and lake. From here you can access another terrace housing the outdoor kitchen and BBQ which is directly in front of the door to the apartment itself. The cool stone walls, lapping water and shade will make you feel like you are a million miles from the city.

The property (continued): Into the apartment itself though the thick wooden doors you enter the open living and dining area which is furnished with traditional Italian furniture and modern appliances that ensure you will not want for anything. The entire apartment is dominated by the hewn rock face of the mountain which ensures the villetta stays cool in summer and warm in the winter. There are panoramic lake views from the windows and another small private terrace located just off the kitchen area. The floors are in solid stone and the decor is simple yet contemporary, combining old and new with arm chairs set in front of the working log fire. There is also a dining table and chairs for those evenings when you prefer to dine in.
