Castagnola is a small village on the northern shore of Lake Lugano, in the Swiss canton of Ticino. It is in the extreme south of Switzerland, on the border with Italy. This lakeside idyll is close to the town of Lugano but is quiet and mainly accessible by boat or by foot, making it a great choice for a quiet retreat and a peaceful village for the locals. With a holiday apartment in Castagnola from 9flats, you can experience this quiet village first hand, living among the locals and seeing the village from their point of view. Your holiday apartment in Castagnola provides you with an authentic travel experience, much like couchsurfing in Castagnola but with a far greater degree of comfort and security in your own room or apartment. In short, renting your holiday accommodation in Castagnola from 9flats is the perfect way to enjoy this charming village.
Exploring from your holiday apartment in Castagnola
The views of the lake and surrounding mountains are stunning and worth coming for all on their own. The village is just a few kilometres east of the town of Lugano but retains its own quiet identity, providing a welcome retreat for those who want a restful holiday. Lido San Domenico is a beautiful stretch of shoreline where you can take a cooling swim in the lake. Again, it is quiet and remote, accessed along the Olive Tree Trail from Gandria. Next door, Lugano offers a beautiful small city of elegant boulevards, great restaurants and stunning views of the lake and mountains beyond.
Choosing your holiday accommodation in Castagnola area
If you cannot find a place in Castagnola itself, or you simply want a little more bustle on your holiday, then a holiday apartment in Lugano could be the answer. It is small enough to walk around and many streets are indeed pedestrianised. Where the slopes are too severe, there are funiculars to take you up the mountains for even better views. It also has a charming old town, a Museum of Modern Art and a Swiss Miniature Village attraction. A holiday apartment in Como meanwhile, is only half an hour to the south and here you can enjoy one of Italy’s most lakeside classic resorts.
Moving on from Castagnola
Before leaving Switzerland, a holiday apartment in Zurich will let you explore Switzerland’s largest city and one of the world’s main financial centres. It is also surprisingly lively, with a great club and restaurant scene.
Move another half hour to the south and a holiday apartment in Milan will see you staying in one of the fashion capitals of the world. Explore the famous fashion boutiques, visit the Duomo and perhaps even enjoy an opera at the famous La Scala opera house. Wherever your travels take you, booking with 9flats means staying in the best accommodation in the world’s most exciting locations for less than the cost of a standard hotel room.
