“Gandria is a magical place!”

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 11 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

person found this review helpful

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.

“Ideal rental property for 2, set in an enchanting lakeside village”
Reviewed 24 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Set in the car-free, lakeside village of Gandria, Casa Parrucchiere is a wonderful place to stay if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life, but remain within easy reach of the amenities of a cosmopolitan town. This small house on 2 floors has an interesting history and is set literally feet away from the village church with its ancient tower that is typical of the Ticino region. The house is perfect for 2 people, is very well equipped, comfortable, clean and airy. Just outside the front door is a small seating area shaded beneath a vine-covered pergola. With no cars in the village, it is very peaceful, usually the only sound is of footsteps on the numerous stairways, arcades and passages that make Gandria such an enchanting place.

The village has a newly-opened community cooperative store selling wonderful local fresh and dried foods, and wines, often produced on a very small scale, that it would be difficult to find elsewhere. This means it is very easy to make your own authentic Ticinese foods in Casa Parrucchiere's kitchen !! There are also 5 restaurants in the village and a convenience store in the nearby petrol station.

Gandria is an ideal location for exploring the area. If you are travelling without a car you can make use of the village bus which goes directly to the centre of Lugano. Or there is a delightful walk along the lakeside Olive Path which will bring you to the edge of Lugano in about an hour. The village also has its own jetty from which you can board the cruiseboats that ply the lake.

The owners of the house, Nina and Richard, are a charming couple; helpful, informative and very friendly, who do all they can to make your stay relaxed and enjoyable.

“A peaceful lakeside retreat”
Reviewed 13 November 2012 for a stay in May 2012

person found this review helpful

My wife and I have been to Lugano a number of times and stayed at several wonderful hotels until we discovered Casa Parruchieri. Located in the quiet, old, lakeside town of Gandria just east of Lugano, Casa Parruchierri is a welcoming home away from home perfect for two people or small families. Gandria's car-less stone streets and staircases that lead down to Lago di Lugano or walking paths along the lake past ancient olive groves offer a simple and refreshing respite to the modern world.

Casa Parrucchieri has all the appliances and amenities you need but there is no TV, (which you don't need in this wonderful place) so bring books, drawing materials, your camera, some simple ingredients from local markets and a good bottle of wine and you will never want to leave.

Great romantic location next to the church in Gandria. We loved our stay at Casa Parrucchiere. Very friendly, clean and many nice little details. The location is fantastic and the hosts are very kind. We stayed there with our baby and the infrastructure is very well suited for that.
