Overview

The facility

Welcome to your holiday home by the lake
Directly on the lakefront of Lago Ceresio (Lake Lugano) and only ten minutes from Lugano by car, nestles the dreamy little village of Gandria with its winding alleys, steps, courtyards and covered arcades. Anyone looking for peace and quiet and the charms of nostalgia will find a little corner of paradise here. Time seems to have stood still for 100 years. The village is closed for traffic and has preserved the original character of many buildings such as, for example, the 17th-century San Rocco Chapel. At the foot of the Monte Bré, Gandria is the perfect departure point for excursions trips to Lugano and further afield in Ticino, as well as for long days of dolce farniente.

Our Tamaris House is located at the end of the village, on a slope directly below the main road. You reach it via a long, wide flight of steps. The total of 7 holiday apartments offer spacious living areas and plenty of room to feel good for up to 6 people. The modern apartments all have a lake view and are decorated in a bright, Mediterranean style. A pretty overgrown path leads to the house’s own jetty with a small place to sunbathe and private swimming access.   Due to the steep terrain and the depth of the lake, we do not recommend these holiday homes for holidays with small children. 

Are you planning on active holidays? Reka’s holiday resort in Gandria is the perfect holiday base for unforgettable hikes and bike tours. Thanks to direct lake access, it is ideal for water sports with the family or as a couple. The Lugano region has many well-known mountain vantage points and there are fabulous panoramas to tempt you all over Ticino.  The fashionable resort with its car-free centre and Mediterranean climate has earned itself a reputation as the city of flowers, churches and parks. Whether you’re discovering historical sites, visiting world-renowned events, just enjoying life on the lake promenade or chatting and having a meal at a table on the Piazza – Lugano is always worth the trip!

Everything you need for an enjoyable family holiday is here. We look forward to welcoming you; you can even bring your dog.

nous avons 80 ans..... , j'ai une insuffisance cardiaque et porte un défibrillateur. il serait important d'informer qu'il n'y a que des escaliers. ( env. 200 marches de la route au lac ) la machine à café c'est bien, mais même en préchauffant la tasse, le café est tiède (à remplacer ?) malgré tout nous avons passé de très agréables vacances

Bei der Buchung gibt es heute die Option „2 Wochen im Zeitraum von … bis …“ nicht mehr. Im früheren Buchungssystem gab es diese Möglichkeit. Das war sehr praktisch, um an einem Ort mit mehreren Wohnungen, in dem mir für Ferien zur Verfügung stehenden Zeitraum, die Möglichkeiten einfach heraus zu finden. Heute muss ich manuell die verschiedenen Wochen - eine nach der andern - eingeben und abchecken… Herzlicher Dank

Schade wegen der Mängel

Mona M. U. H. M.

Wir sind seit Jahren Kunde bei Reka und v.a. in Gandria, weil wir die Ausschicht auf den See jedesmal von Neuem geniessen. Die neue Art der Buchung ist komplizierter als früher und wie schon beschrieben, sieht man die Wohnungen erst im späteren Verlauf der Buchung. Ausserdem sind die Parkplatzgebühren neu. Die Mängel habe ich schon beschrieben. Bei der Kurtaxenbezahlung, wäre es von Vorteil, wenn die Natel Nummer der Mitarbeiterin angegeben würde.

Location & directions
About the location

The former fishing village is a much-visited tourist destination because of its winding alleys and picturesque location. On the opposite side of the lake, accessible only by boat, are the Cantine di Gandria, the wine cellars of the municipality. Not far from here is the Swiss Customs Museum (smugglers' museum). Lugano, 6 kilometres away, offers a wide range of sports and leisure activities as well as shopping facilities. A car is recommended for excursions and shopping. In Gandria there is only a small shop with a limited selection of products.

About the region

Hikers, cyclists, bike racing buffs, golfers, yachtswomen, gourmets, racing drivers, nature enthusiasts and culture lovers … Ticino brings a smile to everybody’s face! Favourite destinations in the Sopraceneri region are the southern foothills of the Alps, the medieval castles in Bellinzona, Locarno with the international film festival, the markets in neighbouring Italy and the romantic Maggia and Verzasca valleys. The Sottoceneri region around fashionable Lugano offers lakes and mountains, culture, first-class musical events, culinary highlights as well as great shopping opportunities. The southern part of the canton is particularly interesting for anyone looking for the perfect combination of urbanity and nature. 

Ticino attracts visitors with its southern charm and sub-tropical vegetation unique to these parts.  In Switzerland’s “sun lounge” you’ll enjoy the particularly mild climate from spring right through until late autumn. 

Directions

By train: Travel to Lugano, from railway station by taxi to Gandria, go past the place-name sign to the second petrol station (Mondial Change)... the Tamaris House is immediately after this on the right.

By car: Take the motorway exit ‘Lugano-Nord’, then follow road signs to ‘Gandria/St. Moritz’.  Pass the Gandria place-name sign to the second petrol station (Mondial Change, and the house is immediately after this on your right-hand side. About 30 meters after the petrol station you will find the parking spaces with the flat numbers.
