Discover parks and water sports from a holiday home in Lake Lugano

Situated between northern Italy and southern Switzerland at Tessin’s southernmost tip, Lake Lugano is an ideal destination for nature lovers. Surrounded by mountains, palm trees and numerous parks, Lake Lugano is a holiday paradise with many indoor and outdoor activities. Around the lake, several holiday rentals offer a luxurious backdrop for your Lugano adventure.

Holiday home in Lake Lugano

Plenty of cities along Lake Lugano offer attractive holiday rental opportunities. The city of Lugano is a good starting point. Book a holiday house and spend your time visiting the Old Town, bordered by parks and promenades and the Swiss Miniature Village, which kids will love. Other attractions are Gandria, an unspoiled lakeside village and museums such as the Museum of Modern Art or Cantonal Art Museum. Lake Lugano is ideal for water sports such as boating and swimming, and it is also close to multiple mountains such as Brè or San Salvatore, perfect for hiking. Furthermore, around the lake, you will find numerous parks to wander through and spot a variety of trees and flowers. In Parco Scherrer in Morcote, for example, you will find camphor trees, azaleas, bamboo and cedars. However, a holiday house near the lake will also give you the opportunity to visit other cities in the region of Ticino, or in neighbouring Lombardy.
