Casa Francesca is a beautiful apartment located in Villa Thara, a renowned stone house facing the Lake Lugano . Villa Thara in San Mamete is the ideal place for holidays because of its large, terraced garden with a small shared swimming pool enjoyable by all the family day and night; its stunning view on the lake and on the mountains that give everybody an inner calm and, last but not least, its small port with direct access to the lake for a swimming.
What makes Casa Francesca different from any other holiday apartment is that it is not a holiday apartment: it is a proper two levels family-owned house, beautifully furnished with good taste by the owners who took great care in making feel at home anyone who will visit. It is the perfect place to escape from the busy city or to enjoy a romantic holiday with places of interest, good food and wine and stunning landscapes all within easy reach.
The apartment has an independent entry opening up on a large living room with sofas, dining table and even a fireplace. Next to the living room there is a fully equipped kitchen and from both places you can reach the terrace outside, where you can nicely spend the whole day shaded by the pergola. The terrace and the garden offer you all year long a breathtaking view of the lake, whether you are sunbathing or just relaxing, observing “vaporetto” crossing the lake.
Three bedrooms on the upper level, together with two bathrooms, make Casa Francesca the ideal choice for families and large group of friends. And for those who really like comfort and big spaces in the same Villa there is another separate apartment, Casa Caterina (visit number 1484222) ready to be rented.
