The Lombardy region
Lake Lugano Area:
The Italian Lakes are a little slice of paradise. Elegant ribbons of blue water stretch out ahead, folded into the sun-baked foothills, with a spectacular back drop of the snow-capped Alps.
Warming, inspiring and graced with natural beauty, the lakes are still a place to draw breath and wonder. Lake Lugano, oriented north-south, ringed by characterful old villages often wedged onto narrow beaches between rugged cliffs and water.
Those classic lake images of flower strewn balconies, Baroque gardens and splendid waterside villas can be found here in abundance. Dotted around and between the lakes are some of Italy's finest art cities, such as Milan, Verona & Bergamo.
Porlezza is just over the mountain from Menaggio on Lake Como and on the scenic route to Lugano. Porlezza is the main town at this end of the Lake and adds an Italian flavour to a well known Swiss name!
The vibrant town of Porlezza is situated long the north eastern shore of Lake Lugano and provides guests with a pretty cafe lined lakefront with promenade, a wide choice of shops and supermarkets and a regular bus service to Lugano city and Menaggio.
The property's location in Porlezza make it ideal for guests wanting explore the surrounding Lakes, with Lugano on the doorstep, the nature reserve of Lago di Piano a 15 minutes drive away and the breathtaking Lake Como just a 20 minutes drive away.
Local activities include swimming, hiking, cycling, horse riding, boat hire, golf, tennis, quad biking and sailing. The cosmopolitan delights of Lugano city are just a 25 minutes drive away and here guests can experience the designer shopping, modern casinos, nightclubs, bars and restaurants.
Just above Porlezza is the village of Carlazzo which is close to the nature reserve surrounding Lake Piano and which has a rich and ancient history. With a castle of its own and medieval fortifications, this village was once well protected. As with most towns and villages around the lakes, they have a heritage steeped in religion. Churches and monuments abound and this region is no different. The Church of St. Giorgio in nearby Gottro, is well worth a visit just to see the Romanesque Bell Tower. Other churches to visit include St. Stefano which houses a famous organ made by the Serassi family in 1858. Serassi is one of the most famous families of organ builders in Italy and Europe and have been organ building art for six generations from 1720 to 1895 - their name is synonymous with quality, music, Lombardy and Porlezza!
