Art Residence al Lago

Furnished Apartments

If you are planning to stay in Lugano for a few months, whether for business or leisure, the Art Residence fully furnished apartments are the perfect solution.

Located directly on the water's edge, it would be hard to find a more picturesque setting, combined with such high-quality accommodation. It is kindly requested a minimum stay of three months for the one-bedroom suite apartments and a minimum stay of six months for the two-and three-bedroom suite apartments.  

This completely restored 1912 villa is situated in a fashionable residential area, within walking distance of Lugano's city centre, its historical attractions, museums, congress centre, restaurants and shops. Busses into town run right past the Residence and close at hand in the Cassarate area are banks, a post office, florist, pharmacy, bakery and news-stand.

The Art Residence is managed by the Grand Hotel Villa Castagnola, directly across the road. This prestigious five-star resort hotel stands in its own private sub-tropical park and is a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Residents of the Art Residence apartments benefit from the Grand Hotel's superb amenities, including swimming pool and fitness centre.

Other services are at our tenants disposal at an extra charge: Wellness area (sauna, steam bath, calidarium), tennis court, Clarins Beauty Corner, Danilo Hairstyling, two first-class restaurants and a Fresh&Easy restaurant,  bar and meeting rooms.

The one-, two- and three-bedroom suite apartments of this superbly restored villa dispose of air-conditioning  and offer great comfort, space and privacy. They are a home away from home.

Each of the elegant, serviced apartments is individually decorated with beautiful pieces of art. The floor-to-ceiling windows and sunny, south-facing balconies overlooking the lake, create a light and airy atmosphere.
