What we like about this property

This is a really fun and stylish old cottage in the Swiss village of Pura, near Lake Lugano. Built over three floors, it has a quirky, eclectic style, with a cool rooftop living area looking out over the lake and mountains. Full of character, it’s a great vacation home for rent Switzerland, suitable for up to eight guests.

Description

This 400-year-old cottage in the Ticino district of Switzerland is located in the village of Pura. Bought by its current owners in 2013, it was gently restored with the help of Swiss designer Erica Matile. Vintage materials and eclectic furnishings give the home a really special character.

We love the mixed textures around the home. The floors are a combination of wood, brick and colorful tiles. Walls are sometimes rough hewn, and sometimes a bold splash of floral meadow or black-and-white print. Furnishings are antique, rustic and contemporary, with cool found objects and little art pieces. The dining room mixes an old wooden table with modern perspex chairs and a striking, contemporary chandelier, and the kitchen has a wonderful vintage feel. The living room is cave-like and almost monastic, with its large comfy sofa and central wood-burning stove. 

The house is built around an old staircase that links all three floors, and has a really interesting configuration of rooms. The first floor is the living room with a kitchen and loggia/terrace. The second floor is another loggia with a work space and two bedrooms (one with two singles, one with a double, plus two extra folding beds for children). The top floor is really unusual. Open on three sides, it has a cool, rustic vibe, with views of the lake and mountains. It’s almost like a world unto itself – with a dining table, lounge chairs, a hammock and a double bed, which can be used to accommodate two guests in the warmer seasons.

This is a unique vacation home for rent in Switzerland, perfect for guests looking for a home with real character and sense of fun. There are two rental options: two bedrooms, sleeping up to four guests, or three bedrooms for up to six guests. 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

There is a TV, DVD player, docking station for iPhone / iPad / iPod, ISDN, washing machine, and everything needed to cook and eat well.

AROUND

The house is located in the historical village center of Pura, close to many hiking trails. It has three free parking spaces, two churches, a grocery store and a good pizzeria. The nearby forest is full of mushrooms and chestnut trees. The lake and golf course in Caslano are within five minutes’ reach, Ponte Tresa on the Italian border within ten minutes, and Lugano 20 minutes. A train runs every 20 minutes from Lugano to Ponte Tresa, the bus from Magliaso every hour. The train to Zurich takes 3.5 hours, but it’s 2.5 hours by car.

    A tastefully equipped family home. An oasis of tranquility located in the center of a historic village. The view from the second floor is splendid. It is located in the surroundings of a magnificent nature.

  • Christina and Luk, April 18, 2018

    The house Pura is a treat for all the senses. It has been beautifully renovated and furnished, all the details are incredible. The icing on the cake is the terrace under the roof. In this holiday home you are immediately comfortable and in the area can be very much. We spent with our children very relaxed holidays in Pura – hopefully goodbye!

  • Petra W., March 31, 2018

    Our Easter holidays were spent this year in Pura in the enchanted house of Mrs. Matile.
    It was perfect! Prudent little details, wonderfully comfortable interior and not forgetting the bright roof terrace, which our daughters used to prepare for the final exam. We felt very comfortable and like to come back.

    Christmas in Pura: The hot stove warms the huge Flätzer sofa and at the same time radiates into the kitchen, where it sizzles and roasts. The sun squints on the huge roof terrace, where the tea steams next to the lawn chair padded with sheepskins and the view alternates between book and mountains. Pure being and enjoyment and feeling good.

  • Martina und Hans-Georg, October 14, 2017

    Over the roofs of Pura ….
    It can be nice holidays.
    A Ticino townhouse in which the old preserved and new stylish, imaginative and added with heart.
    The proximity to the city and in the back the original Malcantone promise interesting possibilities of the vacation design.

  • Doris W., September 13, 2017

    The beautiful house, in the middle of the enchanted village, has been carefully renovated and furnished with great grandeur. Everything is right and it feels as if the spirit of yesteryear still floats through the time-honored walls.
    We can recommend the house to all who seek and appreciate peace and relaxation in a stylish and comfortable ambience.

  • Brigitte and Andri, August 19, 2017

    We have a lot of experience with rented holiday apartments: Mostly they were filled with surplus and old furniture of the owners.
    Not so in Pura. Very personally selected and original equipment! This creates a mood that has transferred to us.
    On the other hand, the house has a very long history, which adds to the magic.
    The terrace was the absolute highlight.
    Commendable is also the cleanliness of the house and the noble bed linen.

    Brigitte and Andri

  • Doris Merz N., May 10, 2017

    A beautiful house, which has been renovated with great attention to detail. Modern and old in one. You can feel the passion with which the house has been furnished. We are always happy to come back!
