About this listing

The space

This cosy house is composed of a living-room with kitchen area on the upper floor and of a double room with bathroom on the lower level. The living room has also a charming fireplace and a comfortable sofa bed. There is also a satellite TV set to receive the most important Italian and foreign channels.
The house is in the characteristic village of Puria, a small hamlet in the municipality of Valsolda, where the renowned novel by Antonio Fogazzaro "Piccolo Mondo Antico" is set.
Within easy reach there are some noteworthy, historical churches, among which the village church designed by Pellegrino Tibaldi and the Sanctuary Beata Vergine della Caravina.
The adjoining hamlet of Castello offers a magnificent view on the lake below and is within 15-minutes' walking distance. Here you can visit the museum "Casa Pagani", where the homonymous 17th-century painter lived. The museum "Villa Fogazzaro" is also very close.
Easily walkable paths will allow you to experience an immersion into the greenery. Along the banks of Lake Ceresio, 4 km away, there are lovely beaches and some beautiful scenery.
Besides, the nice and peaceful city of Lugano, with its Casino and the ferry trips, is only 20 minutes' drive away.
Many are also the restaurants offering delicious typical and international dishes.

A lovely place to stay with a caring host!! We spent 3 days in the flat as a group of 4 people. Be advised that you need a car to reach Lugano and other cities around the lake Lugano. Puria, the village where the flat is located, offers a small supermarket, relaxation, stunning views and a good start for hiking days. The flat offered enough space for all 4 of us, has a well equipped kitchen, TV, fireplace - it simply is a cozy place!

We stayed for three nights in Federico's and Evelin's little charming apartment in Puria. We only met Evelin who met us on time. Despite the fact that she couldn't speak much English and we know no Italian we managed to communicate and she showed us everything we needed. The apartment looks exactly like on the pictures and is really clean. Puria is a really, really small village which seems from another time. If you're looking for a quiet and calming place, you're right. I'd recommend to arrive by car. Puria is situated on a hill with small steep streets leading up to - perfect situation to practice your Italian driving skills ;) We didn't explore much of Puria but rather the towns and cities located by the lago di Lugano and further away. The nature with all its hills, mountains and lakes is just pure beauty.

He met us where we had arrived, and guided us to a parking lot. It was late evening, so we worried where to eat dinner. He brought us the closeast restaurant.

Un véritable coup de coeur ! Puria est un village adorable juste au dessus du lac de lugano et à 30 mn du lac de Côme donc idéalement situé pour découvrir les lacs et l appartement était impeccable et vaste avec un grand séjour kitchenette et le coin nuit en dessous .. bref je recommande vivement et espère pouvoir revenir vite !!
