Welcome to Casa Santo Stefano at Miglieglia close to Lugano.
A special atmosphere awaits you at Casa Santo Stefano, a «somewhat unusal» hotel comprising two 18th century houses, which have been lovingly restored to maintain their typical 'Tessine' style.

The tastefully appointed rooms offer the perfect setting for a relaxing or active retreat. The houses' airy loggias, grapevine-shaded terrace and Tessine-style kitchens with open fires all invite you to linger and relax. This is where our guests enjoy a hearty breakfast with our homemade bread and plaited loaves and a great range of homemade jams and other treats at one of our large wooden tables.

The valleys of the Malcantone, extending from panoramic peaks to turquoise waters, welcome tourists between one leg of the Lake Ceresio, the Gulf of Agno, the Tresa River and the high and splendid mountains dividing Switzerland and Italy that rise tall over the Lake Maggiore. Malcantone, among the areas of Tessin and more precisely of the Lake Lugano Region, is certainly the one that presents the highest number of characteristic corners and the widest variety of landscapes. Leaving directly from our hotel you will find a romantic and unspoiled hiking area with lush chestnut forests and rivers. More than 300 km of hiking trails connect 26 characteristic Ticino villages on the sunny slopes of the Malcantone Valley. The attentive hiker will also repeatedly discover old charcoal burning sites where coal was produced from beech wood up to 100 years ago. Remarkable are the hidden grotti, the many dry stone walls along the way and the old chestnut trees, some of which are several hundred years old.
Casa Santo Stefano is located in Miglieglia, a typically small, quaint Tessine village, lying on a sunny slope in the Malcantone district and it is the ideal setting for individual or family holidays, group visits, seminars and special events. We warmly welcome you to Casa Santo Stefano.
