Lovely free views down to the capriasca valley, on Lugano and lake Lugano and the mountains 'Denti della vecchia'. Arrival: 80 meters easy walk through the old rural village from the public parking (free of charge) and the public bus stop. Coming by car: From nord leaving the highway at Rivera, from south at Lugano nord, then continue to Tesserete and uphill, in direction Val Colla. Coming by public transports: arriving by train to Lugano, then by ARL-bus to Tesserete, change in postcar and uphill, in direction Val Coll...The apartment (90m2) is next to the house of the owner - an old traditional Ticino-House from the begin of 1800.

About the neighbourhood
The village is situated in middle of a chessnut forest with many hiking trails in all directions. At night it is usually very quiet so we can hear the wild animals, deers, marten, fox, owls etc. This place is ideal for families with small and big children, for couples, friends and single persons who love being in the nature and in the quiet.
How to get there
Once you arrive in our village, we are happy to pick you up at the parking or bus stop to help you for the luggage.
