The Area

Restaurant at 350 meters | The house is located in the hamlet of Cima, 350 meters from a restaurant and 500 meters from a boat rental service. Cima is a small, picturesque village with a medieval structure and remains of ancient walls and fortifications.

Porlezza | The village of Porlezza is just a 5-minute drive away. This is a quiet village most of the year and turns into a cosy tourist town in the summer but without mass tourism. In August, the annual San Rocco celebration takes place in Porlezza with fireworks over Lake Lugano. Porlezza also has some interesting sights to visit such as the thirteenth century Romanesque church of San Michele with frescoes from the Last Supper and the church of San Vittore il Moro with eighteenth-century frescoes by Giulio Quaglio di Laino.

Lake & amp; caves | Lake Lugano is surrounded by a green mountain landscape, ideal for trekking and hiking trips. Nature lovers will also love the Lago di Piano nature reserve and the caves of Rescia with suggestive stalactites and stalagmites.

Lake Como | Lake Como is only 15 kilometres away and has elegant villas, romantic gardens and picturesque towns to for memorable day trips.

Milan | Milan is a 1,5-hour drive away and can also be easily reached by train from Como’s San Giovanni railway station. In Milan, you can go luxury shopping for days but even better are the famous Last Supper by Leonardo Da Vinci, the Duomo with spectacular views from the roof and Castello Sforzesco (don’t forget to book your tickets beforehand).

What guests say…

“The house at the lake was a great choice for us (9 people). A lot of space. Direct Access to the lake was super! Its not a super luxury House but The house is kept well and was clean. If I had questions to the Owners i got help very quickly! I would recommend this House to others any time. Thank you for this lovely stay. Lalaskus, Switzerland – August 2016

“Well we did indeed have a very happy holiday at Villa L’Approdo. Our main intention was to relax, swim and fish and this villa provided us with all of that + wonderful views and a good standard of comfort. We immediately appreciated the fact that gaining access to the water’s edge on the lakes is not so simple and therefore to have our own little beach was a true bonus. As some of our party was keen to fish, we were glad to be able to do that from our garden, as well as have barbecues,. The welcome basket of goodies was a particularly nice touch and our younger, hungry travellers set upon it immediately. Thank you. All communication with your team in the office was prompt, helpful, friendly and accurate. The village of Cima is charming and we used the local shop, bakery and a couple of the bars. There is a small one-roomed bar which apparently will not allow ladies in! Otherwise we shopped in Porlezza and were amazed at the number of supermarkets and other shops. The Tourist Information guy was helpful, we purchased fishing licences in the post office and were easily able to get hold of fishing bait. The walk in to Porlezza along the busy road does not have pavements for most of the way so it didn’t feel terribly safe. But in Porlezza we had the best ice cream imaginable in– Visconti Gelateria close to the lakefront and enjoyed great pizza in Pizza Pronto. On Saturday morning we strolled through the market and although the fresh foods were wonderful, it was an expensive experience compared to the supermarket shopping. Lovely, lovely people. Our best experience was hiring motor boats on Como for 2 hours and admiring the villas of the rich & famous, choosing the one we’d buy when we win the jackpot and jumping in the water for a refreshing swim. We visited Lugano but this certainly did not represent a highlight of the trip – it’s a pleasant enough Swiss city but without the Italian charm. Our holiday was very enjoyable and the villa is located in a scenic part of Italy. Unfortunately I am not in a position to think about buying a villa of my own but am certainly thinking about returning to the lakes for a future holiday. Thank you so much for making it all happen.

“We had an excellent holiday! The house was perfect for our two families, and the garden was great! We had no trouble finding the property, and the only negative issue we had was that the property was quit close to the road with quit heavy traffic. We contacted the office a couple of times (trouble with hot-water, dishwasher and swimming-facilities). Prompt response every time, and all solved to our satisfaction! La Taverna: Great service! Great pizza! We enjoyed take-away pizza several times during our stay, and we also had our final meal the last day at the restaurant. Jhonny’s Marked: Everything we needed for breakfast (and some dinners)! Great meat, hams, salamis etc! 🙂 Most of our main shopping were done at the supermarkeds in Porlezza. La Terrazza: Great service! Great food! Great view! Thank you for a great holiday!” Morten ”
