Grand Hotel Villa Castagnola
Set on the shores of Lake Lugano, this magnificent 5-star resort hotel is a property of immense charm, standing within a private, subtropical park.

Today's Grand Hotel blends the splendor of a bygone era with the warmth and comfort of a private home. The Grand Hotel Villa Castagnola is admired for its tranquil atmosphere, elegance and discreet and friendly service. An enchanting oasis, away from the stresses of modern life, and an ideal environment for business or pleasure, at any time of year.

Leisure activities and modern amenities abound, including an indoor swimming pool, tennis court, private lido on the lake, fitness centre, bio-sauna, caldarium, steam room, solarium, Clarins Beauty Corner and Danilo Hair Styling.
