The 400 year old Ticino house in the historic village of Pura was restored and furnished with great attention to detail and unusual design by the Swiss designer Erica Matile. Old building fabric and an eclectic design style give the house its special character. In the entrance floor there is a vaulted cellar and a bathroom, on the first floor a large living room with kitchen, on the second floor a loggia with work area, two bedrooms and a bathroom. On warm summer nights you can sleep in the double bed in the attic. Open to three sides, the roof top offers a wonderful view of the lake and the mountains.
What to do
The house is close to many hiking trails. The lake and a golf course can be reached in 5 minutes by car, the Italian border in 10 minutes and Lugano in 20 minutes. The town is easy to reach by public transport.
Why we like this house
A historic house furnished in a personal style with great attention to detail. On the roof terrace you can relax with a view to the lake and on warm summer nights you can even sleep there.
This house is great for
Holidays with family and friends.
