The hotel in detail

An impressive Italian-styled villa overlooking the Lake Lugano, Grand Hotel Villa Castagnola is set in stunning sub-tropical gardens filled with exotic plants. With wonderful lake and mountain views, a Michelin-starred restaurant, a wellness area with spa and beauty treatments, a private lido and fascinating collection of contemporary sculptures, this is a treat for the senses at every level.

Grand Hotel Villa Castagnola is a charming property that has a succinctly Mediterranean holiday feel combined with elegance and great service. There are stunning works of art wherever you look and each of the rooms and suites is uniquely decorated and has wonderful lake and garden views from the spacious balcony.

Take the funicular up Monte Brè, just outside the hotel, for the most fabulous lake and Alp views. Then visit the typical Ticinese village of Bré and follow the Art Path through the village. Return to Grand Hotel Villa Castagnola for a refreshing spa treatment followed by dinner in the Michelin-star restaurant Arté.
