Villa Principe Leopoldo, with its postmodern architectural style, stands tall on top of Lugano’s Collina d’Oro (golden hill). It is close to the city center, but in a very quiet and residential high-end area. 

The villa is formed like a natural arena. The mountains form a circular stage with their reflection in the blue of the lake and the sparkling lights of the banks of the city of Lugano.

In the years following the hotel’s opening in 1986, world renowned celebrities returned. Opera singers, actors and famous American singers were frequent guests. The long guest list was completed with members of royal families and important leaders from finance, politics and industry. The same is true today as important stars and sports personalities frequent the villa during their stays in and around Lugano. Their appreciation is double fold because of Villa Principe Leopoldo’s discreet attention to privacy. 


Villa Principe Leopoldo is located on the "Collina d'Oro" (Golden Hill), a residential area overlooking the city of Lugano and its bay.
