The hotel is a landmark in the area - with a terrace that overlooks the town and lake. The infinity pool area is family friendly and the gym is very well equipped. Breakfast is a treat with a variety spread out each morning .. The spa and hot tub are a great locus for relaxation..

Decent kitchen, although no utensils (could have gotten those for 50 Francs per day, no thanks), nice white couches around a decent sized TV, and a quaint small balcony with small table, 2 chairs and the obligatory ash...

The Villa Sassa is gorgeous and peacefully located about a kilometre from Lago Lugano. The room is huge, immaculate and marble-riffic. The hotel also has a glorious, flower-covered terrace with a view of the lake and a beautiful outdoor infinity pool, plus indoor pool and spa. Loved it, highly, highly recommend!!
