    The property was very well located with close access to a supermarket, cafes and the train station and Lake Lugano. It was a great base to have in the area, in a quiet location. The house was very comfortable for the 4 of us with all facilities that you would need whilst on vaction. It was close to the train station,which gave us another option of travelling in the area eg. Varese, Milano. We were also able to park our hire car securely in the property. Our hosts, Domenico and Marriet were very nice and ensured that our accomodadation had everything we needed including a well stocked pantry, laundry and bathroom cupboard. Clean towels and sheets were also provided for our second week. We would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in this area. We hope to be able to visit the area again and stay at this property at some time in the future.

    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!
