    Property description
    Gandria
    |
    Rental Home – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3
    Charming little house on two floors in the picturesque village of Gandria with partial view of the Lake of Lugano. Completely renovated with hand-made terra cotta floors, wood stove, new bathroom and nice kitchen. Fully equipped with dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, telephone, computer with free Internet access, ironing board, bed linen and towels.

    The name “Casa Parrucchiere” comes from the building’s use as a barbershop 100 years ago (sign still visible on facade). The house was owned by Swiss painter Fritz Meijer (1900-1969), who used it to exhibit his artwork.

    Outside the entrance is a “pergola” (arbor) and table for two shaded by grapevines.

    Setting the scene
    Gandria is the last Swiss village on the road to Porlezza and Menaggio (Lake Como). The border with Italy runs across the lake just beyond the Swiss Customs Museum (orange building on the opposite bank). The peaks of the mountains opposite Gandria are already Italian territory, but the small buildings at the base are still Swiss – known as the Cantine di Gandria (cellars of Gandria). Wine, cheese and meat were stored there because of the year-round cool temperatures. This was the origin of the grotti (rustic restaurants), which can still be found along the path to Caprino.

    Early history: Celts and Romans
    The first lasting human traces on the immediate area around Gandria come from an iron-age people known as the Celts (as of 800 B.C.). A large stone (Sasso della Predescia) carved with mysterious signs, probably used for Celtic religious purposes, is located within hiking distance. Local names may also be lasting reminders. Gandria sits at the base of Mt. Brè,...

Richard & Nina were an absolute delight – wonderful hosts. The house was very well equipped with everything we wanted and needed. It very much had a woman’s touch, with great attention to detail … which I have found is typical of Nina. When we booked, Nina provided us with a 14 page document about everything we would want to...

This is a perfect place to relax and explore the wonderful lakeside of Lago Lugano and all of it's breath taking surroundings! Nina has thought of everything in this 'hotel-apartment'. It is like a mini chalet, on two floors, with a view of the lake in the tiny Borgo of Gandria. The kitchen has everything you need and more and... more

We had a week at Casa Parrucchiere in August 2011 and liked it so much that we returned for another end of August week in 2013! Again we found this little house perfectly equipped and an ideal home from home for a wonderful time by Lake Lugano. Hosts Nina and Richard were just as welcoming. And there is something very... more
