“How welcome Mike and Tulay made us feel in their home and what a beautiful home with stunning views. Everything was very bright and clean and orderly but at the same time a home from home. The surrounding area has so many wonderful mountain tracks to explore and the wonderful Lake Lugano offers all sorts of views and boat trips. It was hard to leave the house at all because of the 2 large terraces where we enjoyed watching the sunsets whilst sipping wine and reading! Many thanks to them both for one of the best exchanges we have enjoyed so far. 5 stars!!!”
Michael's reviewsAs a host (2)
“We had the great pleasure of exchanging, non-simultaneously, with Mike and Tulay in the summer of 2013. Their gracious hospitality swept us into a lovely adventure exploring the glorious mountains and lakes from their well appointed, comfortable home. It is very easy to arrive in Lugano from the Malpensa airport in Milan. Be prepared to drive narrow, winding roads through the mountains. . . but the gorgeous views are so worth it! Here you have the best of both worlds as the famous Lake Como area of Italy (great for wine and grocery shopping) is very close by. The fashion center of Milan is less than 2 hours away. . . as are the beautiful Swiss Alps. We did a road trip to magical Murren. . . with the views of Mount Eiger that take your breath away. So much to do and so little time! Mike and Tulay are the best of exchange partners. . . so considerate, kind, thoughtful, helpful, generous in every way. They took great care our our home and car in Florida, leaving it very clean and tidy. So wonderful are these people that they are now dear friends. We hope to see them again soon!”
Where is it?
The local village, Roveredo, is a small hamlet with an attractive and tranquil collection of mostly historic houses but with few local facilities. There are many attractive walks in the hills behind the house. 3 kilometres down the hill is Tesserete, a small town with supermarkets and other shops, swimming and sports centre, doctor, dentist, bars, restaurants etc. 15 - 20 minutes away by car is the beautiful lakeside city of Lugano with a wide range of attractions. Also being just 15 minutes from the north south motorway, you can easily reach Italy or other parts of Switzerland. Within an hour or two's drive you can be in Milan or Lucerne or many other attractive destinations in the north Italian lake district or the Swiss Alps. There is a local bus service but you need a car to really enjoy what's on offer. These include, walking, climbing, skiing, golf and you can even reach the seaside on the Ligurian coast for a day out. We are 75 minutes from Malpensa Airport which has lots of flights (including Easyjet) to and from all parts of Europe and beyond.
