18. Villa with view of lake and mountains in Carona Lugano.

About 5 km away from the seafront of Lake Lugano, we are selling a villa in a hillside and panoramic location with living space of approx. 286 m², a beautiful garden measuring approx. 721 m² and two covered car parking spaces.

Already mentioned in the 6th century as a market town, Lugano is today the cultural and economic capital of the Tessin, thanks to its favourable climate and attractive countryside, thanks to its function as a cultural bridge to Italy and the Middle East and thanks to its high concentration of banks and trading companies. Lugano is a wealthy, young city with a comprehensive, modern infrastructure and a diversity of cultural amenities the whole year round. However, Lugano tends to be rather a (very upmarket) residential location and the economy plays a more important role than tourism; today Lugano is the third-largest banking and trading centre of Switzerland and a few years ago also became a modern and proud university city.

Lugano is easily reached by Intercity, motorway and by plane. Agno airport is 4 km, Milan-Malpensa airport 45 km and the golf course in Magliaso 6 km away.

One of Lugano's two local mountains is the Monte Brè: The sunniest residential area in Switzerland, facing south, with a panoramic postcard view of the city and lake and into the mountains as far as the Monte Rosa in the High Alps. Today Monte Brè forms part of Lugano and is connected by public transport to the city centre.

The district of Castagnola includes the lower slopes of the Monte Brè as far as the banks of the lake, with their splendid old villas and houses, e.g. the Villa Thyssen with its fantastic park extending along the banks of the lake.
