Casa Antica is located in a tiny, historic village on the shores of Lake Lugano. It was built in the late 18th century, and recently renovated to feature a gourmet kitchen, terracotta floors, and a fantastic view of the lake and mountains.
Casa Antica has three floors, each 35 square meters. The top floor features the master bedroom with generous closet space, a modern bathroom with shower, and a fantastic view of the lake and Monte San Salvatore. The second floor features an open kitchen and dining area with pantry. The ground floor features a second bedroom with 2 twin beds, and a small bathroom with shower.
Within a few steps from the old village, you enter Casa Antica’s beautiful garden surrounded by old vines, rosemary, and thyme. Enjoy the breathtaking view of Lake Lugano, Monte San Salvatore and Monte Bre, with Monte Lema and Tamaro in the background.
The garden is shared among three houses (all members of the family) and features a selection of lounge chairs, umbrellas, tables, and a gas grill ideal for outdoor dining. In the evening, a beautiful sunset gives way to the lights of Lugano on the other side of the lake.

Ich wohne an zwei verschiedenen Orten in der Schweiz: einerseits im voralpinen Hügelland von Apppenzell Ausserrhoden mit Sicht auf den Bodensee und in Caprino mit Sicht auf den Luganersee. Da ich sehr naturverbunden bin, liebe ich die beiden Orte, fernab von Lärm und Verkehr und trotzdem nahe bei Städten St.Gallen und Lugano. Mit Leidenschaft pflege ich die beiden Gärten. Von meiner Berufstätigkeit im Spital, bin ich gewohnt, mit Menschen aus verschiedenen Kulturen in Kontakt zu treten. Ich freue mich, Sie kennen zu lernen.
I live in two places in Switzerland: in Trogen in Canton Ausserhoden with view on the lake of Constance, and in Caprino with view on the lake of Lugano. As I enjoy nature and the outdoors, I love both places - removed from noise and traffic yet close to the culture of St.Gallen and Lugano. I am a passionate gardener and enjoy taking care of the garden in Caprino. I have travelled extensively in Europe, North and South America and enjoy interacting with people from different cultures. I look forward to meeting you.
