The house is a modern furnished and open view apartment, lightfull, with spaciuos living room and large terrace, separeted full equipped kitchen with balcony; the three bedrooms and bathroom on the back side of the house. We have are south-west orientation, which means that we can enjoy nice sunsets from the living room and balcony. We are on the top floor and adjoin with the neighbor-apartment only by the terrace: this give us a lot of privacy. At the same time we are in a green and quiet part of the city. The apartment has a double parking place in the garage and a common garden, with a small "playground". Next spring (2020) we are going to renovate the bathrooms.

Pregassona is a young and dynamic quarter, well connected to the centre although so quiet and green. A nice playground (with fishes, roes and owls next to) is close to the house. Close to us is the sport and entertainment centre of Lugano (football and athletic stadium, ice stadium, running trails, tennis fields, cinema) are located nearby in Cornaredo. Close to our place are several restaurants for every kind taste and pocket (Italian or Swiss cuisine), many supermarkets (discount or gourmet supermarkets), bakeries, pharmacies. In the city centre you can find museums and several shops, restaurants. Infrastructure for bath at the lake are and public swimming pools are not far away (10 minutes by car or 20 by public transport). Of course, you can also enjoy any part of the lake, which has free access.

Gandria and Morcote) even by car or by boat, going hiking on the High mountains of Alto Ticino, visiting the Castels of Bellinzona (Unesco heritage).

Pregassona has all facilities (playground, bakery, several supermarkets, and many bus connections) and you can have access to the big sport and amusement centre, which is in Cornaredo (football and running stadium, hockey stadium, running way close to the river, cinema). The house is in a secondary, quiet street, and at the both end of the street there are two differente bus stops (city-line n. 7 and extra-urban line in the direction of Val Colla, where you have a lot of hicking ways). You can also reach the city-line n. 3 or 5 in walking distance.

Who we are

  1. We are a German-Italian family: Kai (German), Margherita (Italian), Peter and Marie (6 and 4 years old, both born in Switzerland). Kai is professor for Informatics at the university, I`m still writing my PhD-thesis in Law. We lived and travelled in many places during our children-free time in USA and Europe and last year we spent as a family 8 months in Singapore. Now we are settled in Lugano but we still love discovering new places and enjoying new experiences. We love Ticino, enjoying the wonderful Swiss nature and the nice cultural life here. However, we are a travaller-family. In our opinion is home-exchanging a wonderful way to meet new interesting people and visiting places in a way that is not possible through traditional holiday. We already have several home-exchange and we are very happy with our previous experiences: we are respectful person and try to welcome our guests and treat the guest-house as it would be ours.
