Our home

We have a newly remodeled loft apartment with a 360° view of the lake of Lugano and the Alps. There is a swimming pool in he small complex of 2 two story buildings, ours has 4 apartments, and our unit quite honestly is the best one with a nice covered terrace overlooking the lake and the wine vineyards. We have 20 exposed wood beam ceilings. There is a queen bed in one room, a child's bed in another, a queen futon bed in the upper loft and another single bed in the separate loft study. Lugano is 50 min from the Milan malpensa airport and 10 min from the Lugano commuter airport with connections to London, Zurich and Rome. Italy is 20 min away with Como just 30 min away. The living area is quite open and airy with morning light until 6pm in spring and summer. There is at least one car available stick shift, and there is train service just 10 min walk from the house. We have a cat Minnie who is quite friendly and self sufficient and can also stay with friends if necessary.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

This area like most of Lugano is immersed in green with trees and vineyards everywhere, you can find yourself in the woods within 10 min from our house and yet you are quite close to grocery shopping as well. Lugano is full of events during spring and summer, concerts out in the piazza's and boating on the lake is quite a common activity, as well as mountain biking and road riding. There is an exclusive small winery just minutes from our house and a tour and tasting can be arranged. Lugano has quite long days during June with the sun setting around 9-930 pm and the temperature around 70-75 °f. You are close to mountains and you have the lake just about in front of you. It is a very clean, relaxed, no stress place to be.
