Casa Parucchieri, Gandria, Lugano, and the surrounding area far exceeded our expectations. What a delightful place to relax, explore, and enjoy the natural beauty of our surroundings. Beginning with the exceptional service of its owners and the attention to detail provided (how to get around, where to eat, where to shop, etc.), we found every aspect of this beautiful place welcoming. We managed well without a car - got around on foot, by bus, and by ferry. The house was very well appointed. There was nothing we wanted for that we did not have. Bring good walking shoes...you will need them!

“Cosy, well-equipped holiday home with great views”

We stayed at the Casa Parrucchiere for ten days in summer 2014. The Casa is really a small but very complete home with everything one could wish for: full-sized kitchen with oven and dish washer, coffee machines, all utensils, washing machine and clothes dryer, wifi, et cetera. It is also beautifully decorated and very cosy (including wood-burning fireplace!). Also, a nice outdoor area is provided where one can sit right in front of the beautiful old village church. The silence at night is bliss if you're from a larger city like us and the beds are very comfortable. We didn't get to meet our host Nina in person since she was also on vacation, but she took great care of everything -- also, almost everything in the house is labeled and explained in a very practical manner.

Access to the Casa is also easy: we arrived by train in Lugano, and from there it's only a short taxi ride to the village of Gandria (also just 15 minuten by bus, but this does not run very often, although one gets used to the irregular fare system pretty quickly).

The Casa has a beautiful direct view of the Lago di Lugano and the mountains.

In short: highly recommended!

“Wonderful base to explore the Swiss Alps”

Richard & Nina were an absolute delight – wonderful hosts. The house was very well equipped with everything we wanted and needed. It very much had a woman’s touch, with great attention to detail … which I have found is typical of Nina. When we booked, Nina provided us with a 14 page document about everything we would want to know – from how to find the place, parking, where best to shop, facilities in the house, maps, power (not the normal European plugs but some adapters are available). The cooking facilities are great. We love preparing our own meals from local produce, so this worked out well. And the village of Gandria. Only 200 people. A great experience staying there. Pretty little town. Friendly people. So the first 2 big pluses of our stay: Gandria itself and our hosts, Richard and Nina.

Gandria was also a great base for our day trips in Switzerland – and through the Swiss Alps in particular. The weather was perfect for driving the alpine mountain passes.

In summary: The focus of our stay in Gandria was to have a holiday, in a pretty part of the world, in accommodation & environment we could enjoy. Gandria was just perfect for that. Nina and Richard, thank you for your wonderful hospitality.

A few tips:-

Vignette. This holiday was the first time we had driven in Switzerland. It was only by accident that I stumbled across some information about needing a vignette on our car, to drive through the Swiss tunnels and motorways. Superficially, the vignette might seem expensive, but within Switzerland there are no road or tunnel tolls, so it actually turned out to be cheaper than paying tolls.

Parking in Lugano. Google blue parking disks Switzerland. In some areas (marked) you can typically park for a few hours for free. The blue disk is used to record when you parked. Your rental car may already have one afixed.

Grocery shopping. Do your grocery shopping at Billa in Carlazzo.

“Comfort and sophistication-the perfect holiday accommodation!”
Reviewed 9 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

This is a perfect place to relax and explore the wonderful lakeside of Lago Lugano and all of it's breath taking surroundings! Nina has thought of everything in this 'hotel-apartment'. It is like a mini chalet, on two floors, with a view of the lake in the tiny Borgo of Gandria. The kitchen has everything you need and more and the interior style is very bright and upbeat. The whole place has an artistic flare, including the cheese-slice shape of the building and cool location for the laundry facilities. If you are visiting during cooler weather, the fireplace in the centre of the living room, is a cozy addition. On top of this, the hosts, Nina and Richard, are wonderfully helpful and fun! Staying here is a very original experience.
