116. House with wonderful lake view in Castagnola

In Castagnola on the slopes of the mountain Monte Brè we are selling an independent, completely refurbished and extended house with a small garden. 

Lugano was already mentioned during the sixth century as a trading centre and today is regarded as being the cultural and commercial metropolis of the Canton Ticino (Tessin). This is due to the favourable climatic conditions and the wonderful landscape of the surrounding area, to the connecting function between Italy and the countries of the Middle East and the considerable presence of banks and companies. Lugano is a youthful and flourishing city that can boast a modern and well-organised infrastructure. In all seasons Lugano offers a rich cultural range of events. The city is a popular residential centre (with a very high standard). The economy plays a more important role than tourism. Lugano is the third-largest financial and business centre in Switzerland and most recently has become a very proud and modern university city.

Lugano can be reached easily by Intercity train and via the motorway. In addition, there is an airport at Agno which is 4 km and the airport of Milan (Milano Malpensa) which is 45 km away. The distance to the golf course at Maglioso is only 6 km.

The mountain Monte Brè is one of the two local mountains of Lugano. Here one can find the sunniest residential area in Switzerland facing south with a picture postcard view of the city, the lake and the mountains, as far as the Central Alps and the Monte Rosa. Today the Monte Brè belongs to Lugano and is connected with the city centre by public transport.
