Just home and I have to keep looking at the photos we took of the view from the terrace - truly breath-taking! We loved our 2 weeks in Villa Farinelli. Isabella and her in-laws were welcoming and responsive hosts and communication was prompt before and during our stay. Well-equipped kitchen and plenty of space. The villa is in a quiet spot. Another reviewer mentioned 'the last mile' as being a tricky drive. It's only really once you enter the village that there's a very narrow one-way street; we have a big car and got through fine with breathing room! Lots to see and do locally either side of the border, but equally a great spot simply to relax. Happy memories.

Both Isabella and Maurizio greeted us when we arrived and were very friendly and made us felt welcomed. The house itself looks fantastic and the view of the lake and mountains are also breath taking. The small pool in the garden kept our kids entertained for hours even when it rained. There are many nice restaurants by the lakes so needless to say we didn't cook at all for the week we stayed so had no need to use the kitchen!

We spent three wonderful days in Villa Farinelli. Isabella and Maurizio are great and caring hosts, always available if you need them (they live over the street), but give you complete privacy. Very resourceful in terms of advice for tours in the area (there is also a huge pile of brochures in the apartment). The Villa is a special and historic place towering over Lago di Lugano. We enjoyed trying to spot "our villa" from various places around the lake and indeed it can be seen from miles away. You will rent the ground floor apartment with two bedrooms, a large living room, a large, well equipped kitchen and a huge (no other word) terrace. Interior is original including painted ceilings (think 4m high), while furniture and appliances are much more modern. A great add is the reasonably sized library with books in four languages - think more Dan Brown than Shakespeare, but easy reading in vacation time. We found the apartment spotless clean and very well maintained. No pool yet, it was too early in the year (May), but one can see why many other guests spent their days up in the villa. Milan is a good hour away, Lugano can be reached by train, boat and of course car from Ponte Tresa down the hill. Traffic in Ponte Tresa can be a bit of a nightmare due to the crowded Swiss-Italian border. Finally: The last mile to the villa needs a confident at least careful driver (and smaller cars are an advantage) as the road first winds up in narrow serpentines and you then pass through a narrow lane in the old town. Nothing to be scared about, if you don't get stressed out. We loved our stay, Villa Farinelli is highly recommended!

Beautiful villa with all the needed appliances, very helpful and kind host, breathtaking view. Decent pizza place in walking distance. Also suitable for families with smaller children since the terrace offers lots of space and has a secure fence. Would definitely come back!
