Guestbook comments from the manager

Our lovely and joyfull trip to Porlezza is over and we are back in sunny Finland :)



GRAZIE MILLE! Just wanted to thank you all, you are the best, we are most pleased with our stay in Casa di Claes. The house was more than we expected - clean, big and in such a great area!! The neighbours were great and very helpful :) Casa di Claes was very well equipped, nothing was missing. We just loved it! And the pool, oh, just great!!! We highly recommend!





The area and scenery is just breath-taking, beyond any words! We are sure to visit Italy again and will use your services - as I'm gonna "be your Finlandese spokesman" here in Finland :) Our whole group is so pleased with Happy Holiday Homes, your service is just amazing, you guys are simply great!



We left unopened cheese and ham and a bottle of milk in the fridge, they will keep good for a long time, hope someone enjoys them as much as we have :) We also left some drinks for Bruno, the guy nextdoor, he was so kind and helpfull :)



Crotto Villa Maria was the best restaurant ever, food was excellent and the service great! We visited almost every little village along the left side of Lake Como, great scenery and the roads... Very narrow and they drove fast, but it was very exciting. Day in Milan was great, we visited San Siro Stadion and our teenagers were thrilled to see it. Very few of their friends have a chance to sit in Balotelli's chair in the AC Milan dressing room :D



Day in fashion outlet FoxTown in Mendrisio was also enjoyable, I would recommend it to everyone. Drive through Lugano was really nice!



Our kids made friends for life in Porlezza, that was icing on a cake :) A weeks was just too short, no doubt about that! We are sure to come back, our hearts were left behind to Italy <3



We have nothing to complain about! Your service has been outstanding since my first email in January 2013. The wait was long, but worth it, haven't ever seen anything so beautiful than the scenery in Lake Lugano and Lake Como. Just envious at you all, 'cause you are able to enjoy it everyday :D



Hope to see you soon again, cherishing our memories here in Finland

Other Activities: Canoeing/kayaking, public villas & gardens

Golf: There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Cadenabbia & Menaggio Golf Club celebrating 100 years this year and is Italy's oldest golf course. Established in 1907 with 18 holes Par 70, it is located above Menaggio near Croce, in Grandola ed Uniti, approx. 20 min by car. Tel.: +39 344 321 03. Green fees: weekdays EU 55, weekends and holidays EU 70 Euro; golf cart rental EU 36.

Restaurant golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended. Guests are always welcome, please call beforehand to check course rules. Golf Club Menaggio: (Menaggio Como).

Ski: This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibility and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.

There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema, not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.

There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.

The closest major ski resort is Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass, which is approx. 1 h 20 min by car.
