Beautiful view, perfect location, historic town house on the lake side (no diving from the window!) and at beginning of the old town with cobbled streets, a cafe, a convenience store, a bakery and shops for local gifts. Free parking over the road, along the side of the lake. - PLEASE READ full profile before booking -


We're lucky to live with such a beautiful view, to be able to leave the house on summer mornings and dive straight into the lake, to have access to nearby wild fig trees, walnut trees, mountain trails etc.

The house sleeps 2 people perfectly (the bedroom is quiet and insulated) or 3/ 4 people at a stretch (the couch in the living room folds out into a double bed but isn't insulated from the noise in the street below) and more adventurous people could even request a hammock for the courtyard!.

We've both travelled a lot and have hosted many of our friends here. Hospitality is something that comes naturally to us.

We keep the house reasonably clean and tidy and are sure that you will too. Your bed sheets and towels will be fresh from the laundry. We don't iron the bedsheets. Life is too short :-)

The house is quite old, and the exterior (from the courtyard) needs some expensive restoration work. If you're extremely picky, or just a fan of bland, squared-off surfaces, it's better that you don't stay here.

Доступно гостям

Guests will have access to the entire apartment.

If you need anything extra, just ask!

Общение с гостями

Мы больше не живем в квартире, но по-прежнему рады пригласить гостей на ужин, приготовить вместе и показать гостям окрестности, когда у нас есть время :-)

We no longer live in the apartment, but are still happy to invite guests for dinner, cook together and show guests around the area when we have time :-)

Другие важные подробности

There is free wifi in the area provided by the town hall (the network is FREE-HOTSPOT-DOC). You can usually pick up the signal from the living room. There's also wifi at the nearby Bar Marino (1 min walking from the front door) but you'll need to buy a coffee or something to use it.

In late spring / early summer there are a family of swallows that live in the courtyard. Sometimes they make a mess in the communal space below the property. We like the swallows, and try to clean up after them as much as possible.

- Please feel free to ask me for anything that you need :-)

- Keep the downstairs door firmly closed at all times please. But make sure you have the key before closing (and locking) it behind you!

- No old age pensioners please. There are two flights of stairs.

- We don't want people to be unhappy in our apartment. Please read the full profile before booking, and don't expect things that aren't listed in the description. However, If you do have a problem upon arrival and we can't find a solution I'll give you an immediate refund via AirBnB and help you to find an alternative. 95% of our guests leave happier than when they arrived. This warning is unfortunately necessary for that inevitable 5% who will be dissatisfied or who haven't quite grasped how the site works. The house is historical and needs some long-term architectural maintenance in parts. If you're looking for a perfectly clean, modern and sterile environment then you should look for a hotel instead.

Вы должны также принять к сведению
Необходимо подниматься по лестнице - 2 flights of stairs from the front door to the apartment (which is on the 2nd floor).
Возможно, будет шумно - Delivery trucks come at around 6 in the morning to drop off merchandise for the shops downstairs. In summer we have swallows nesting in the courtyard.
Своей парковки нет - Free, all-day parking is just over the road, along the side of the lake, to the left of the galleria / tunnel.
Ограничения удобства - The wifi signal is weak in the main bedroom. The courtyard outside the property is old and crumbly. Please don't book our place if you're fussy.

We really enjoyed our stay with Anna and Sam! We felt ourselves like we were staying in our home. We were welcome with delicious cakes and warm hugs!! The room is cozy, with a big and very comfortable bed. The house is very close to the lake with a perfect view. I liked sitting near the lake in the evening and feeding ducks. We cooked together with Anna, and i still remember Pasta with tuna (once we have returned to home, i have tried to cook it :) During our trip we have visited many cities, but Porlezza with its small streets is still in our hearts. Now we are thinking to get back there in autumn.

Sam is a spectacular host who really went out of his way to make us feel welcome and have everything we needed. We arrived to find a gift of fresh cakes from the local baker which was a nice touch, and the house itself is very clean and tidy. It’s a charming, simple home and it wasn’t long before it felt like it was ours! (And the lake view is really something to wake up to, and even more awesome during thunderstorms!) The area is very quaint, feels totally safe and has lots of little shops and plenty of cafes close by for a morning cappuccino. (You can even get a late night gelato a minute away!) Sam put together a list of recommendations of places to visit which was very helpful. Porlezza is an easy bus ride to Lugano if you want to explore a busier area, and you can then get a ferry boat back that takes a scenic tour home whilst having an Aperol spritz on deck! Also do bring your swimsuit because even though it was mid September, it was still pleasant enough to go for a swim in the the lake. There are plenty of places you can get dinner nearby, but sams kitchen had everything we needed to cook for ourselves to stay indoors and relax . The weather was quite changeable so some nights we got to use the pellet burner which was a complete novelty to us! It gave off plenty of heat and made the place lovely and cosy, we also had extra blankets that sam had put in the house for us in advance. Sam kindly offered to show us around one afternoon, and we got to see the most spectacular view of the lake on top of a mountain, he also cooked us a meal in his home with delicious wine and cheese! This was a lovely gesture and made our stay even more enjoyable. We had really wonderful stay and this was the perfect getaway. :)

Alles ist sehr gut auf der Airbnb-Seite beschrieben. Lage der Wohnung sehr gut: Zwei Minuten zum Bäcker, zur Bushaltestelle, zur Bootsanlegestelle und in die kleine Fußgängerzone. Wir waren zu viert 3 Nächte dort. Lediglich die Schläfer im Wohnhzimmer haben es durch die Straße und kleine Fußgängerzone - zumindest im August - laut und sie sollten vielleicht nicht viel größer als 160 cm sein.

I've travelled a lot (over 50 countries) and ended up hosting many of the people that I met around the world. Being able to show hospitality to strangers is a beautiful thing - I've been on the receiving end many times and I know how those little connections can help create a mem…
