Why Claude Hoffmann in Switzerland chose Pregassona

We always loved the Ticino with its mediterranean ambiance and the Swiss organization and reliability. This modern apartment is a wonderful retreat for our family of five and also for vacations as a couple. Lugano is a charming city for leisure and also to do business. Italy is so nearby and all the other nice places in Ticino are easy to be reached.

What makes this apartment unique

Have a swim in the morning, let the kids run to the playground at the other end of the residence's garden (there is a fence all around). Enjoy a sauna evening or just sit in the lush garden and enjoy sun all year round. Walk to the city center or take the bus, go the groceries around the corner. It is a perfect holiday!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the best vacation rental that we have ever stayed in.

Both my wife and I were amazed by the generous size of the apartment. The unit is nicely furnished and immaculately clean. The pool, sauna, gym etc. are great amenities and everything is very well maintained and clean.

The town of Lugano is absolutely charming with excellent restaurants and friendly locals. There are plenty of lake activities and the shopping is world class.

We highly recommend this property to any other guest and are already planning on returning here soon.

Great family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent Christmas and New Year's eve at this wonderful place to visit my brother and his family.

The appartment is very modern with nice furniture, the Pictures don't do it justice. The living room is facing south, so we had plenty of sun and light even in December. The outdoor seating area facing south is well protected from winds such that we were even able to have lunch outdoors on sunny days in December.

We thoroughly enjoyed the nicely heated indoor pool with our three small children. We spent a lot of time in the fitness area as well while the children enjoyed the beautiful park and the private playground.

Looking foward to come back for another family reunion!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is beautiful, very comfortable and quiet even so the bus station and grocery stores are around the corner.

You can enjoy the sun from early morning until late in the evening. It is great to go swimming and doing workouts in the fitness area.

Our children loved the two gardens and the huge fenced) outdoor area belonging to the building. The indoor parking space is great to have. We felt absolutely perfect and would come back anytime.

Very nice place, very good location

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice place, I especially liked the location close to the City centre and public Transport. Shops and Restaurants are within a 5 minutes walking distance, which was very much appreciated.

My family and me loved being in the pool while the sun set over the mountains, the view is just great. My wife spent a lot of time in the Fitness area and we all had a great vacation at this awesome place.

I would highly recommend this place to all families with children.

Thank you so much for letting us stay at your place,

Very nice winter destination with mediterranean climate

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad we stayed in this wonderful apartment in Lugano. The apartment was very spacious, immaculately clean and well-equipped, especially the washing machine, the dryer and the free and fast WIFI was much appreciated. Our children (15 and 16) spent hours messing about in the indoor pool or hanging out in the gardens and the park while we enjoyed the fitness area and the sauna. We also enjoyed visiting several of the nearby cute Italian and Swiss villages and valleys. We often walked to the lake and the lovely old city center. The guest booklet provided by the owners is great. We loved the restaurants which we had never found on our own!

The apartment is in a calm city area. Walk to the historic city center within 15 to 20 minutes or make a bus ride of 5 minutes. Groceries are in a 300m distance.

The lake and the lido (public pool) are nearby. By car it is easy to reach the beautiful mountains and valleys of Ticino, whether you want to ski in Airolo, Nara or Campo Blenio, or whether you want to hike or just to relax and sit in a Grotto enjoying a glass of delicious red wine and some salami and cheese.

Lugano offers great shopping for every price level. There are many things to do with children: visit the chocolate museum, go on boat trip, enjoy the ride on Monte Bré or San Salvatore, eat ice cream at the lake side, stroll through Parco Ciani and make a stop on the playground there, sightsseing in Lugano with the little trolley train, have fun in Swiss Miniature or even visit Como, Milano or any of the pittoresque villages in Switzerland or Italy. There are a lot of festivals going on in Lugano, Locarno and Ascona - from film to jazz, theatre and dance.

Other activities: fitness, skatepark, ice skating, golf, skiing
