80. Small villa with superb view of Lake Lugano

In Vico Morcote, situated in a panoramic position with spectacular view of the lake and mountains, we are selling a small villa with a portico and panoramic terrace, garden with swimming pool and two external parking spaces.

The small village of Vico Morcote lies 150 m above Lake Lugano and the historic fishing community of Morcote, in a sunny location on a hillside, with panoramic view of the lake and the mountains. The ancient church, built in stone in typical local style, the small Ticino grotto and the old patricians’ house, the ancient inn, converted today into a luxury hotel and gourmet restaurant ’Bellavista’ make up the picturesque centre of the town. More recently numerous families have shown their appreciation of the peaceful position of this place by setting up their homes here: on the terraced slopes that surround the town some prestigious villas and apartments have been built with gardens with abundant vegetation including palms, magnolias, jasmines, Alpine roses, azaleas, wisteria and mimosa. The hills are covered with vineyards and numerous footpaths for taking walks through the chestnut forests. The view from here extends to the other end of the lake with the Monte Generoso and Porto Ceresio on the Italian side of Lake Lugano. The city of Lugano is 12 km away.
