In the Palazzo building guests can find out local visitor information from the helpful welcome reception, got to the hair salon, enjoy a lake view coffee on the sunny terrace of the stylish Panama Cafe bar or enjoy a romantic dinner in the authentic Italian restaurant which also boasts idyllic views over the residence and lake. Resident parking is situated to the front entrance of the Palazzo and a frequent bus service runs from Porlezza to Lugano city and Menaggio on Lake Como.
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.
Porto Letizia also provides guests with a fabulous heated outdoor swimming pool, a sandy beach with breathtaking lake views, tennis courts and child-friendly mini golf and park. Cycle paths meander through the landscaped parkland and the tranquil leafy lakefront setting also makes the park ideal for romantic picnics.
From the residence guests can easily reach Porlezza’s town centre which provides shops, banks, supermarkets, high street shops and lake view cafes and bars.
The cosmopolitan delights and amenities of Lugano city can be reached in just 25 minutes, providing guests with designer shopping, elegant cafe-lined piazzas, contemporary restaurants, clubs and a modern casino.
The beautiful Lake Como can be reached in just 20 minutes by car with breathtaking villas, romantic lakefront restaurants and the famous resort towns of Menaggio, Varenna and Bellagio providing the perfect day trip.
Local activities include tennis, swimming, horse riding, fishing, golf, sailing and boat hire.
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!
