We - five friends travelling together in late October - warmly recommend the place both for its location and its qualities. Tesserete is a pretty village located in a wonderful valley with an abundance of exceptional walking opportunities. The village itself is beautiful, with several nice buildings and restaurants. Villa Capriasca is located a 5 minute walk from the city center in a pretty and quiet area dominated by gardens and impressive villas. The hotel is relatively simple, but very clean, the building looks good, the garden is beautiful, views from the balconies are delightful, it is nicely furbished and most importantly - it has the kind of impeccable, personal service which is all too rare these days. We think that Villa Capriasca is one of the best choices for a holiday in the Lugano region.
