Those lucky enough to vacation in the beautiful town of Ticino, Switzerland should be sure to stay at least one night at the decadent Grand Hotel Villa Castagnola.
Formerly the home of Russian noble family, the Von Ritters, the property was bought in 1982 by the Italian Garzoni family. The amazing transformation of this property into a hotel involved meticulous planning and design, and no luxury was spared!
Today, Villa Castagnola is a 5-star hotel set on the shores of Lake Lugano. The property itself is stunning, sitting inside a private subtropical park. Seventy-eight guest rooms and suites house opulent decor and unique touches. Many rooms have park and lake views, in addition to all of the modern amenities one would expect.
Villa Castagnola is a little piece of Italy on the shores of Switzerland. A vacation in Ticino means sunshine, friendly people, great food, and plenty to do. Visitors to the region can golf, swim, sail, go horseback riding, climb, bike and much more.
