An impressive former home of Russian nobles set in stunning lakeside tropical gardens, Grand Hotel Villa Castagnola au Lac stands on the shores of Lake Lugano in the sunniest region of Switzerland. A hotel since 1885, it has a Wellness Corner, fantastic Mediterranean cuisine and a delightful lido on the lake. Retreat from lifes stresses in grounds that resemble an island paradise. Inside, the rooms and suites are furnished in a classic and contemporary style with elegant, decorative period furniture. Make the most of the spectacular setting and dine on the open-air terrace or down by the lake in restaurant Arte, where you will also find temporary exhibitions. After dinner, go to The Banano Bar, a restful place for cocktails under the palms. For those seeking total solace, the private lido on the lake is perfect for getting away from it all. Grand Hotel Villa Castagnola Au Lac is a Small Luxury Hotels of the World property.

Fabulous hotel with outstanding views of the lake. Rooms were luxurious and well appointed. Even though it is not in the town center, easy bus line right outside the entrance. Highly recommended!
