This house has an amazing view looking out onto Italy. Located in the quiet neighborhood of Morcote - which is just beautiful. Lugano is a short drive away. It is absolutely amazing. The view is just breathtaking at all times of day. Enjoyed the view whilst the kids and dog played outside. House is perfect size for a family of 5. The house was clean and everything was available for us. The management was very efficient as we had all the details well before we arrived. We hope to return when it is warmer to get more use out of pool.
Absolutely worth to visit. What a place to spend your time.
