Italian Lakes: Rooms With A View Over Lake Lugano

A stunning vista awaits visitors to Residenze Valsolda Apartments in San Mamete. This small medieval village is situated on the edge of Lake Lugano in the northern Italian Lakes District.

Glacial Lake Lugano near the Swiss/Italian border is framed by the majestic alps and has some stunning scenery on offer. In fact the Italian Lakes of Lombardy offer some of the most picturesque scenery in the entire country. And if you want to get away from it all there are many small villages dotted along the shoreline only too happy to welcome visitors to their slice of paradise.

Charming San Mamete

One of these is the pretty 17th century San Mamete (San Mamette in Italian). This ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ place is everything a small Italian village should be. Renaissance architecture, a tiny piazza, an abundance of friendly locals, a restaurant or two, a bar, a grocery store and a church up on the hill whose bell still tolls the hour. The big thing that San Mamete holds over other small Italian villages though are its views. If you dream of waking up in a room with a view then you should book into Residenze Valsolda Apartments. This renovated villa has a number of holiday apartments and its location right on the lakeside means each apartment boasts incredible views.

Residenze Valsolda Apartments

With big picture windows that open out fully in each of its rooms, and balconies leading from the lounges of the upstairs apartments, Residenze Valsolda unashamedly takes advantage of the best aspects of Lake Lugano. This is a place that re-energizes but also soothes the soul. The landscape is also ever changing with the seasons. In summer why not enjoy a refreshing dip in the lake from the private jetty or take a boat trip across the lake? In autumn sit on the terrace and soak up the sun as it quietly sinks across the sky behind the mountains, and swans swim regally past underneath your windows.

Here you are completely at the mercy of nature and its whims, but this accommodation means you can have as much or as little of nature as you want. At night the shutters fix to the windows blocking out the chill and in the morning open to reveal again that marvellous view. With marble floors, a luxurious bathroom, modern kitchen and quality furnishings, this is definitely a more-than-comfortable self-catering apartment, and one whose rooms with a view you’ll be loathe to leave.
