We enjoyed our stay in the apartment
We enjoyed our stay in the apartment. It is spacious, comfortable and the great, panoramic view from the front window over the lake (and down onto the bars!) changes with the light and the weather. The location in the centre of Porlezza is perfect and the town is not overrun by the numbers of tourists found in the resorts on Lake Como. There are many comfortable bars and cafes, though we did not find a good restaurant. We found the bus transport to Lake Como to be frequent and easy to use. Swimming in lake is good and the water is much warmer than in Scotland!

Journey of JoyGuest comment entered by manager
Journey of Joy
Dear Danilo Gerletti, At this season of Thanksgiving in America, we are overwhelmed with gratitude for our recent "Journey of Joy" to our family's ancestral ground in northern ltaly, continuing to send our thankyous. We want you to have one one of these little booklets of poems as a token of our deepest appreciation for all you and your company did to make our trip work so beautifulIy. Our daughter, Gina Tapp, was the person who located and communicated with you to arrange everything. What an adventure! Going blindly, how could we know what we were getting into or anything about anything? But from the.first to the last, you conveyed comfort and trustworthiness which we'll not forget. The exquisite place we rented, Piazza Porlezza, was alI and more than represented in your literature. A perfect, and perfectly polished, home base, in tone and features, for our once-in-alifetime celebration, though we dream to return. Not only was our apartment artful and historical, but we had the same out every window view! And just as advertised, the village provided handy access to everything we might wish to see, do, or purchase. We cooked with pleasure from the --Porfezza-markets and wish to especially praise their skilled butcher and hisITlerrlorable shop---- which we put on the admirable level with the gellato out our door. And the cafes under our windows. And the bus to more beauty. And and and .... the ease ofit alI. Not least, the wonderful young man who was our driver from start to finish. Courteous, accommodating, and helpful in every way. It made all the difference, we know, having gentlemen like you and others in your company assisting uso We can't recommend your services higher. The promptness with which you answered every inquery, the ease in making arrangements through you, and your overall friendly and understanding demeanor with us were remarkable. We wilI continue to tell everyone! Thank you wholeheartedly and best wishes-always to you and yours,

A Dream Place
A Dream Place
First of all let me say booking with you was very easy and you delievered on all fronts. Made the whole process very simple and easy to follow with very clear instructions on how to get there including maps and photos. The apartment was beautiful and the view from every window was breathtaking. It was efficent and clean. The kitchen was the perfect place for us to prepare a "home cooked meal" with all the local treasures. The cafe below the apartment served coffee and pastries to die for. Also we tried all three gellato shops which were litterally within feet of our front door. Since there were six of us traveling together I asked the others what I should write in this review. Everyone was in agreement on all of the things mentioned above. The two negatives we had were the HARD beds and loud traffic from below. Everyone agreed that the beds were similair to sleeping on a box spring or maybe the floor. We almost thought part of the bed was missing like perhaps there was a feather bed that had been removed. Please note we are not the kind of people who usually complain and yet they were so uncomfortable none of us had a good nights rest. Our experience would have been 100 percent improved if the beds were better. Secondly the traffic we are not from the country and are used to street traffic but this was loud. Also, it was quite warm while we were there and needed to have the windows open for breeze since there were no fans or AC. (The bedroom at the back of the apartment did not have the noise of traffic). Overall our experience was terrific and would encourage anyone to book this property. The location was great if you want to explore the areas of Lugano and Lake Como. We now call that area alittle piece of Heaven. The Sheppards Elgin, Illinois

I would like to thank you for wonderful hosting
On behalf of me and my family, I would like to thank you for wonderful hosting and treatment. The property was in very good condition and perfectly served our needs and expectations. It was in very good location which provides us with a very good starting position to the most beautiful places and events in north Italy and Switzerland. There were very nice shops, bars and ice cream all around, and the beautiful lake of Lugano, that was glance from every window of the property, could not be ignored and entered deep in to our hearts.
