Property description

We have a choice of 2, three bedroom apartments (ID 176) perfect for a group of friends or a large family. A superb ground floor 300 sq.m. apartment with it's own surrounding private garden. Enjoy the verdant green mountains and the blue waters of Lake Lugano from the garden and grounds of this popular holiday residence.

They both have an open plan living, dining and kitchen area with Satellite TV for your entertainment. The kitchen is perfect for a great self catering holiday stay. Each one enjoys lake and mountain views and a large private garden area, perfect for 'al fresco' dining or sunbathing. There are two double beds, bunk beds and a sofa bed in 'Dalia 1' and in the second apartment, 'Iris 2', there are three double beds and a sofa bed. (All double beds can be twinned).

PLEASE NOTE: The interior photographs shown here are one example of several apartments in this category and we would like to advise that furnishings will obviously vary between them all. Also, the Internet access is dependent on the position of the apartment, please ask at reception for further information.

The Porto Letizia holiday complex and Porlezza: The residence enjoys a wide range of facilities, such as a private beach, large outdoor swimming pool, sun-beds, attractive park grounds, a cycle path winding through the whole complex, mini-golf fields, a children's play area, main reception, on-site hairdresser, Italian restaurant, internet cafe and bar, conference rooms, on-site parking, laundry room, linen hire as well as tennis and cycle hire, all very close by.

Service Charges
Each Porto Letizia property requires a compulsory final cleaning charge to be paid locally on departure. This final cleaning charge is dependent on the property type and it varies as follows:

Studio Apt: EU60
1 Bedroom Apt: EU70
2 Bedroom Apt: EU85
3 Bedroom Apt. or Villa: EU100

On arrival you can hire a baby-cot for EU20, a highchair for EU15 and an extra bed for EU85. If you bring a dog with you then this will cost an additional EU30. All these charges are not dependent on the length of your stay and are a one off payment, they are not included in the above mentioned rental prices.

Linen and towels are a compulsory charge of €10 per person.

There is also an additional compulsory fee of EU4 per adult per night & EU2 per child (upto 16 years of age) per night when staying in Porto Letizia. This is inclusive of gas, electricity and water. Air-conditioning is also included between July and August in Palazzo apartments only. It also includes free on-site parking, concierge service, 24hr reception, swimming pool usage, beachside sun loungers (subject to availability), ping pong, on-site children’s entertainment between 15th June �� 15th Sept, cooking lessons, wine lessons, hiking excursions, 10% off boat hire, 10% off nearby tennis court, grocery delivery service by the local supermarket, Lido-beach entrance between 1st June - 30th September and much more (enquire on-site for details).

Starting from the 1st April until the end of September there is a local council tourist tax to be paid of EU1.50 per person per night for all persons above 14 years of age for a maximum of 10 days.

You will be asked to leave a EU300 deposit at the reception to cover accidental damages. If you accept the damage waiver at the time of booking you will not be asked for this deposit.

Internet is available for the majority of the complex at a 24 hours cost of EU10, a weekly cost of EU35 and a two weekly cost of EU55.

The town centre of Porlezza is within close proximity and the local supermarket conveniently close by. There is also a good selection of local Italian restaurants to sample and then you can end the evening, walking along the beautiful lakeside boulevard.

Porlezza is just 12 km, over the mountain pass from Menaggio on Lake Como and is on the scenic route to the town of Swiss town Lugano. Porlezza is the principle town at this Southern end of the Lake in Italy and adds an Italian flavour to a well known Swiss name!

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!

Visit the small village of Castello, close to Loggio & Porlezza. Built on a rocky spur, it has a fascinating maze of stone houses, narrow streets and small flowering balconies everywhere you look - there is also a great view of the surrounding area & Lake Lugano to enjoy.

Take a boat trip around the lake and get a series of different perspectives from the upper deck of the romantic steamer boat which stops at the pretty towns like the idyllic Morcote & Gandria.

Hike the ridge trail from Monte Lema to Monte Tamaro. There is such a range of activities & pursuits, such as the Alpine Coaster Bob, on & around Monte Tamara - a must for all you adventure lovers!

Skiing:

This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibilty and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.

There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema , not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.

There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.

The closest major ski resorts are St. Moritz and Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx. 100K

The holiday village provides holiday guests with a beautiful outdoor swimming pool, a children’s play area and a fabulous sandy beach. The main Palazzo building also provides guests with a welcome reception, laundry facilities, computer shop, a hair salon and a stylish cafe bar with outside seating. The authentic onsite Italian restaurant is also perfect for enjoying a family lunch or romantic meal with a loved one.

Parking can also be enjoyed in the holiday village and a bridge conveniently leads to the lakefront of Porlezza for guests walking on foot to local amenities. Local activities include cycling, swimming, golf, tennis, hiking, sailing, horse riding, boat hire and cultural excursions to the Lake Como villas.

The Porto Letizia residence is located in the popular town of Porlezza, with a wide variety of shops, supermarkets and cafes within easy access. A frequent bus service operates from the town to the cosmopolitan Swiss city of Lugano and also to the romantic resort town of Menaggio on Lake Como, which both takes just 25 minutes.
