Mountain View CA is a rich city

Studio Villa MOUNTAIN VIEW

In addition to the many facilities of the holiday village, the Italian town of Porlezza with many supermarkets, shops, ice cream parlors, cafes and restaurants is very easy to reach. The main road through Porlezza takes you to the beautiful Swiss city of Lugano and Lake Como within 20 minutes. Lake Lugano has a wonderful location in the middle of the fantastic landscape at the foot of the Alps.

The forested hills and shores of the lake are decorated with colorful villages and elegant mansions. Porlezza is the largest city on the Italian side of the lake. Near the town is the village of Carlazzo, which has a rich and ancient history and the nature reserve around Lake Piano. With its castle and medieval fortresses, this village is well worth a visit.

In the towns and villages around Lake Lugano, life and architecture are still shaped by religion; this can also be seen in the many churches and monuments.

The church of St. Giorgio with its Romanesque bell tower in the neighboring grotto is definitely worth a visit. St. Stefano Church with its organ from 1858 by the Serassi family should not be missed either. You shouldn't miss the small village of Castello, on a rocky outcrop with its cozy stone houses, narrow streets and small balconies.


The high location offers a wonderful view of the surrounding area and Lake Lugano. If you want, you can take a boat trip on the lake and admire the surroundings from a different perspective. Hikes can be made on the way from Monte Lema to Monte Tamaro. Near Monte Tamaro you will find the "Alpine Coaster Bobbahn" for hours of fun!
