1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3
Gandria, Lugano, Canton of Ticino, Swiss Alps
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.

This apartment is exactly as described. Beautifully renovated, in a very old house. Extremely comfortable with every possible amenity. Wonderful hosts who attend to every detail. June in Lugano is summer. The many windows allow comfortable air circulation on hot days. Wonderful place for those who love to walk.

About the neighborhood
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).

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 P...
