The property was very well located with close access to a supermarket, cafes and the train station and Lake Lugano. It was a great base to have in the area, in a quiet location. The house was very comfortable for the 4 of us with all facilities that you would need whilst on vaction. It was close to the train station,which gave us another option of travelling in the area eg. Varese, Milano. We were also able to park our hire car securely in the property.
Our hosts, Domenico and Marriet were very nice and ensured that our accomodadation had everything we needed including a well stocked pantry, laundry and bathroom cupboard. Clean towels and sheets were also provided for our second week. We would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in this area. We hope to be able to visit the area again and stay at this property at some time in the future.
Four adults and two children felt very comfortable in this spacious, nicely modern villa. Everybody loved the terrace, and played lots of table football. The large windows, the upstairs balcony, and the terrace afford a lovely view of the lake, and of the passing ferries. There is no beach in the immediate vicinity, but it only takes a short drive to the nearest one, which also has a good restaurant. There are plenty of bathrooms, and everybody enjoyed their separate bedrooms. The kitchen is well appointed, but lacked basic spices such as sugar and salt - surely the management could afford to leave some there for new arrivals.
Laveno is only walking distance away, though carrying groceries on a hot day isnot recommended.
Our only complaint is the absurd check-in procedure: it requires that guests drive to an obscure tiny village some 10 km away, and locate an obscure address, in order to do paperwork that could just as well be completed at the villa, since a manager has to open up the villa anyway. This check-in procedure was ridiculously unncecessary and very annoying after a long day of travelling.
