Castello: Location and surroundings of this property

In an elevated position facing the South and Lake Lugano this spacious villa is only 2 minutes on foot from the parking and is ideally situated for daylong sun and easy access to the Italian/Swiss border in 2 minutes en-route to the cultural city of Lugano within 10 minutes. The bustling town of Porlezza is 5 minutes away with every kind of shop, 3 supermarkets, electrical, garden, fashion, motor sales and servicing, plus a weekly Saturday market on the lake front. There are highly recommended restaurants and many cosy bars.
Art galleries, cultural music and dance events combined with a full schedule of visitors events throughout the Summer Season make Lugano a vibrant locality to visit. High class shopping and an extensive selection of bars and restaurants plus hotels open all year round cater for all tastes.
Lake Como is less than 20 minutes by car where the picturesque town of Menaggio provides more tourist
attractions and ferries to all parts of the Lake, especially the centre lake towns of Bellagio and Varenna. Access to the skiing areas of nearby Switzerland is around an hour’s drive.
Milan, the fashion centre of Italy, can be reached by frequent trains in about and hour from Lugano station, as well as by car.
All this adds up to a perfect location for a first home or a holiday property with rental potential if desired. Watersports are readily accessible and recently improved trekking and mountain biking tracks make the area highly desirable.
