Villa Principe Leopoldo

Via Montalbano 5, Lugano, CH-6900 , Switzerland

Love at First Sight

Set on a hillside overlooking the placid waters of Lake Lugano, Villa Principe Leopoldo's original building was once the summer residence of a cavalry general, Prince Federico Leopoldo. The Belle Époque style Villa is complemented by a second more modern property, the Residence, just a few steps away. The hotel is set in a smart, residential district just over a mile from the centre of the Swiss city of Lugano, with its quaint cobbled streets and pavement cafes. Leisure facilities at the hotel include two heated outdoor pools, two tennis courts, a spa and a gym.

Romance

This luxury hotel's idyllic location with spectacular views of the city and Lake of Lugano make it a perfect choice for a romantic getaway. The hotel offers an excellent wedding location and you can have your ceremony in the gorgeous gardens with their panoramic views of Lake Lugano. To get you in the mood for love, you can book a couple's session at the hotel spa which includes a body scrub, a massage, champagne and fruit. The hotel's Honeymoon Plus package comes with a room upgrade, a bottle of champagne if you take a junior suite and breakfast in bed.

Your Stay

The Villa has 37 rooms and suites and the Residence has 38 rooms which have stylishly elegant decor and furnishings. All guestrooms are equipped with air conditioning, free wifi, flatscreen TVs with cable and satellite channels, and minibars. For an extra helping of luxury, book into one of the Villa's Signature Lake Suites which feature a separate living room and a private terrace with stunning views of Lake Lugano and the surrounding mountains.

What to Do

You'll want to explore the delights of Lugano, a city imbued with a rich heritage and culture. Take a trip to the 16th century Cattedrale di San Lorenzo which features a splendid Renaissance facade and some excellent frescoes. Catch the funicular railway from Cassarate which will take you to the 925-metre summit of Monte Brè or enjoy a leisurely stroll along Lugano's lakeside promenade, Lungolaga, with its mature trees and beautifully kept flower beds.

The Food of Love

The Principe Leopoldo Restaurant offers gourmet dishes from France and Italy in a sophisticated setting with gleaming glassware and white linen. Open during the summer months, the Leopoldo Restaurant Café is set in the hotel gardens while the Limonaia, a winter garden with a terrace, is where breakfast is served.
