“Small secret, great place”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Perfect for a pair, ideal with kids (it sleeps 5) this place allows you to bid a proper farewell to Italy on your way back to Northern Europe or prepare to Italy on your southbound trip. Just be sure you can stop here more than a quick night. Views are fantastic and the mellow Lugano lake climate unbeneath requires you have proper time to seat outside in the garden or on the terrace with a cup of coffee or tea, a proper newpaper (a real paper one, I mean): uncomparable and - be sure - not decadent at all.
So, look for the atmosphere this place conveys, take advantage of the professional and refined touch Patrizia offer her guests, savour the breakfasts and plan to enjoy the woodlands and follow the hints Patrizia will give you, she is reliable and willing to share her secret choiches in terms of shopping and fashion outlets... Remember you are on the border between the Country of design and fashion and the rest of the world...

“Fantastic, warm, superb, lovely...”
Reviewed 13 February 2014 for a stay in December 2013

It was a fantastic holiday.
Warm hospitality - Patrizia and George are wonderful people and they let us feel like home. They helped us in every way.
Superb location - For those who are looking for a magnificant view of lake, woods and mountains and outside of town, this is the right choice. Just few minutes from shopping and it is close enough to Ticino/Lugano/Switzerland and skiing.
Lovely house - It is equipped with style up to the last detail and a beautiful wood stove is located in the right spot. The kids (7,10) loved the house and the hosts as well.
We would love to come back.

“FANTASTIC PLACE, FANTASTIC HOSTS”
Reviewed 16 January 2014 for a stay in November 2013

We stayed at this lovely cottage for a long weekend in November. The hosts are the most wonderful people you will meet, very welcoming & friendly. Went out of their way to make us feel special. We had a dog with us, and did not mind one bit. Stunning views, quiet location, would like to go back and visit for sure!

“Charming accommodation, stunning views and excellent hosts.”
Reviewed 29 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Our hosts Patrizia and George went out of their way to make us welcome. Patrizia made cakes and jam for us and kept our pantry stocked for breakfast. The cottage had everything that we needed apart from a washing machine but Patrizia was more than happy to do our washing. The view from the cottage is spectacular, looking out over Lake Lugarno and the charming village of Viconago is a short walk away. We spent 2 weeks with Patrizia at Il Pungi Topo and would highly recommend it.
