Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay in the apartment. It is spacious, comfortable and the great, panoramic view from the front window over the lake (and down onto the bars!) changes with the light and the weather. The location in the centre of Porlezza is perfect and the town is not overrun by the numbers of tourists found in the resorts on Lake Como. There are many comfortable bars and cafes, though we did not find a good restaurant. We found the bus transport to Lake Como to be frequent and easy to use. Swimming in lake is good and the water is much warmer than in Scotland!

A Dream Place

  • 5 of 5

First of all let me say booking with you was very easy and you delievered on all fronts. Made the whole process very simple and easy to follow with very clear instructions on how to get there including maps and photos.

The apartment was beautiful and the view from every window was breathtaking. It was efficent and clean. The kitchen was the perfect place for us to prepare a "home cooked meal" with all the local treasures. The cafe below the apartment served coffee and pastries to die for. Also we tried all three gellato shops which were litterally within feet of our front door.

Since there were six of us traveling together I asked the others what I should write in this review. Everyone was in agreement on all of the things mentioned above. The two negatives we had were the HARD beds and loud traffic from below. Everyone agreed that the beds were similair to sleeping on a box spring or maybe the floor. We almost thought part of the bed was missing like perhaps there was a feather bed that had been removed. Please note we are not the kind of people who usually complain and yet they were so uncomfortable none of us had a good nights rest. Our experience would have been 100 percent improved if the beds were better. Secondly the traffic we are not from the country and are used to street traffic but this was loud. Also, it was quite warm while we were there and needed to have the windows open for breeze since there were no fans or AC. (The bedroom at the back of the apartment did not have the noise of traffic).

Overall our experience was terrific and would encourage anyone to book this property. The location was great if you want to explore the areas of Lugano and Lake Como. We now call that area alittle piece of Heaven.
