Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Lugano, Switzerland is a gorgeous, safe and easy city. The Lugano Lake is surrounded by both the Italian and Swiss alps. Lugano (in the Canton of Ticino) is the Italian speaking region of Switzerland. We are in a small village, Montagnola outside the city of Lugano. We are only a 10 minute drive to the boarder of Italy. We are an hour from Milan and 30 minutes from Como. Within walking distance of our home are several good family owned restaurants, the post office, a pharmacy, a small grocery store and a children's park. There are wonderful hiking trails and the famous Herman Hesse house and museum are in our neighborhood.
The local bus system is easy and gets you to and from the city center within 10 minutes.
In the winter, there is great skiing for all levels just an hour away - Andermatt, Airolo.
During the summer there are local tennis courts, outdoor pools and Lake Lugano offers kayaking, boat rentals and local beaches called "lidos." Hiking is a everywhere and there are very well marked trails. There are beautiful scenic walks with views of the mountains and the lake.
