For lovers of Historic Hotels
This patrician Ticino hotel, fully appointed with antique furniture, is located in the more than 1,000-year-old artists' village of Carona, where Hermann Hesse spent a considerable amount of time. Over the past five years, quite a few painted ceilings and floors from the hotel's 200-year history have been uncovered and restored. A delight for lovers of bygone days.
For lovers of Typically Swiss HotelsThe Villa Carona is situated in the heart of the 1000-year-old village of Carona, which later became an artists' colony.
It was built by the Andreolis, a family of wealthy entrepreneurs.
They were succeeded by the more artistic Scalas, Petrinis, Solaris and Casellas, all of whom left their mark.
Carona, the earliest mention of which dates back to 926, is a village of picturesque medieval streets lined with stylish houses that have survived the test of time.
It is this historic authenticity that lends it its romantic flair.
