“Comfort and sophistication-the perfect holiday accommodation!”
Reviewed 9 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

This is a perfect place to relax and explore the wonderful lakeside of Lago Lugano and all of it's breath taking surroundings! Nina has thought of everything in this 'hotel-apartment'. It is like a mini chalet, on two floors, with a view of the lake in the tiny Borgo of Gandria. The kitchen has everything you need and more and the interior style is very bright and upbeat. The whole place has an artistic flare, including the cheese-slice shape of the building and cool location for the laundry facilities. If you are visiting during cooler weather, the fireplace in the centre of the living room, is a cozy addition. On top of this, the hosts, Nina and Richard, are wonderfully helpful and fun! Staying here is a very original experience.

“Wonderful second time around!”
Reviewed 14 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We had a week at Casa Parrucchiere in August 2011 and liked it so much that we returned for another end of August week in 2013! Again we found this little house perfectly equipped and an ideal home from home for a wonderful time by Lake Lugano. Hosts Nina and Richard were just as welcoming. And there is something very relaxing about being surrounded by the peaceful and car-free village of Gandria, with church bells ringing occasionally and villagers chatting on the steps outside the house, like living in another, more restful age.

“Gandria is a magical place!”
Reviewed 14 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

person found this review helpful

A very magical and romantic place! My husband and I fell in love with the simple elegance of what Gandria has to offer. From the vistas, to the church bells and the people, Gandria is a magical place. The historical elements of Casa Parrucchiere and its modern amenities and attention to great detail make this a true gem when it comes to great location and service. The house is equipped with everything you need and more. The owners Nina and Richard were friendly, welcoming and hospitable which made our stay truly memorable.

A recent addition to the Gandria village is “La Bottega Di Gandria “ a cooperative store that offers unique local Ticinese products. We went there every day to buy fresh bread, cheese, salami and wine.

I was searching for a creative and inspiring setting to write my children’s story and Case Parrucchiere and Gandria were a magical combination that was truly unexpected. I would highly recommend staying here and we hope to be back soon.

“Enchanting Lakeside Retreat”
Reviewed 12 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

My husband and I spent a long weekend here and it's been the most relaxing trip we've taken since moving to Switzerland. Nina was so helpful and all the information given to us really made the trip relaxing from the very beginning. The house is absolutely beautiful, set right across from the Church in the picteresque, car-free town of Gandria. The mornings and evenings were cool, but we enjoyed local wine, olives, and cheese on the adorable outdoor seating area as we watched the tourists and locals go by, lounging in the hammock from time to time. We even lit a fire in the fireplace with the wood provided a few of the nights we stayed, playing card games and watching a movie or two (both provided in the house as well). The house was very clean and the kitchen a joy to cook in with produce we bought from the local markets. The bathroom and bedroom downstairs, both looked brand new as well. Walking along the Olive Trail, which passes right in front of the house, was another highlight. We've taken some of the most breathtaking pictures. Getting to Lugano or Porlezzo was easy and both trips to visit the Farmer's Market was a lot of fun. Overall, this was exactly what we were looking for in a quiet, relaxing, Ticino getaway.
