The Villa Principe Leopoldo is a historic building and a majestic setting teamed with the very highest standards of accommodation, service, modern facilities, and cuisine. In the smart residential neighborhood where Hermann Hesse lived, two kilometers from down town Lugano, the Villa Principe Leopoldo has grown into an up-market resort amongst Lugano's finest accommodation. More Italian than Swiss in spirit, the resort comprises a two-story Mediterranean villa and a more modern residential building. Once home to Kaiser Wilhelm's brother-in-law, this historic villa's common areas, guestrooms, and gardens take maximum advantage of the superb lake and mountain views. The Principe Leopoldo Residence façade, located across the street, has an impressive portico, which shows an eclectic mix of Renaissance and Art Deco styling. A scheduled limousine service to downtown, Lugano Airport, and the railway station is complimentary for all guests.
