Other Things to Note
What others have said about staying here:
"I love this place, I have never slept better anywhere in the world, it's so beautiful and peaceful here". - Jolanda Blum, New York.
An diesem Studio liebe ich den Balkon wo man die herrliche und Super Aussicht auf den See und die wundervollen Berge geniessen kann. Ich könnte stundenweise nur betrachten und geniessen. Mir gefällt es jedesmal wenn ich nach Aldesago fahren darf. Freue mich aufs nächste mal!!! Karin Frei, Switzerland.
Our Ticinese friends in California had talked for years about the great beauty of this Canton, and Lugano in particular. Marcus' apartment is the perfect starting place, if this is your goal: a very simple space with an amazing view over the city, the lake, and the surrounding hills and mountains. The only 'issue' was finding it in the first place, especially after dark, with only-occasional street signs and hard-to read house numbers. But once there, all was very well, with the (unexpected) tiny modern elevator to get us and our ample luggage to the 3rd floor. It's a 15-minute drive up the steep hills of Mt. Bre to get there, and no nearby shopping. We should have come prepared with some food, but pleased to find a bag of pasta and a jar of sauce in Marcus' kitchen. (Yes, we replaced it.) The wi-fi connection (lobby only) was satisfactory. And when we needed to make a last-minute change, Marcus and his local helpers were both readily available by telephone. All in all, an excellent way to experience this extremely beautiful spot.
It's difficult to imagine a better location to enjoy a beautiful view over Lugano (the town), Ceresio (aka Lake Lugano), and the whole region. Great, towering view, and yet so close to Lugano and a good transportation system. (The funicular is two minutes by foot from the apartment).
The apartment is in excellent condition, furnished with taste, well equipped. The bed is comfortable, no back ache if you stay in it for too long!
We stayed for 5 days, of which unfortunately two were "graced" with pouring rain. Well, that gave us a chance to work on our book backlog, and also for this the apartment was a comfortable place to just sit there and read.
Thanks Marcus for giving us a chance to enjoy a beautiful area from a nice place.
We spent a long weekend at Marcus flat and it was so far my best experience on airBnB. The view from the balcony is even better than on the advert and especially at night where its even more spectacular !!! The only thing is that you should come by car, which I think is obvious if you're visiting the region ( we visited Lugano and lake Como) The flat is located high enough to feel peaceful, yet very close to city center ( for us 15 mn by car) , and it has much better views than other places " closer to the lake" it was a little hard to find but just go towards the train funicular and then turn left to a small (email hidden) was worth searching because when we saw the lovely swimming pool with a lake view and the large and beautiful terrasse we were soo excited. One good thing Marcus should mention is that this flat is in a sort of mini resort with a lot of charm and a reception desk full of Touristbrochures.. The flat itself was very clean and perfectly furnished, and the bed is sooooo comfortable that we slept until 11.00 and could have slept more...
Marcus was reactive and provided lots of instructions and contacts for help, and we were nicely welcomed .
Overall we felt like in a 5 star hotel , I totally recommand Marcus's flat for a restful stay and stunning views.
My wife and I stayed at Marcus place. It's the only place in Lugano to have an amazing holiday. The location is perfect. You will never leave the balacony. I really recommend it for anyone visiting Lugano.
