The apt is very specious and well appointed with great view, and it is about 10 minutes walk from the center.
We didn't give it five stars due to lack of attention to details and items that didn't work when we check in. The Wi-Fi didn't work and it took two days to get it working, and to Gaia's credit she tried to be as responsive as possible.
Few of the lights were burned and one of the showers didn't drain at all and the hand shower was broken. BTW, we didn't ask for this to be repaired when we were there, so no comments about how long it took to fix it, if it was done.
In spite of the these items, we greatly enjoyed our stay and will recommend it.
My husband and I cannot say enough wonderful things about this cozy, super clean, cheery, updated and efficient apartment that offers a washer and dryer! This two story apartment, with an amazing history of it’s own, is located in the beautiful and historical setting of Gandria, on Lake Lugano in the Ticino area of Switzerland. There are several excellent restaurants in Gandria that overlook Lake Lugano and offer beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. Although the eateries are only a few minutes’ walk, the apartment offers everything needed to prepare any meal desired if one chooses to stay in. The beautiful city of Lugano is approximately 15 minutes by mini-bus or cab. One can also take the ferry from Gandria to Lugano to enjoy the outside cafes, shop, buy groceries, or simply walk along the boardwalk, etc. Nina, who owns the property, is personable, helpful, easy to communicate with and offers a very complete information packet to help one organize their stay. Staying in this charming apartment that is located in such a special place has been a highlight of our travels, and we are planning to return as soon as possible!
