Exclusive lake location

The Blue View Cocoon is located on the Italian side of Lake Lugano, just 8 kms from the picturesque city of Lugano. It is a couple of hours driving distance from Milan, Zurich, Torino; a good day of picturesque drive from the south part of Germany. The area has a mild Mediterranean climate and a high number of sunny hours that visitors can enjoy from under palm trees. While many travelers come to the area to shop in the fancy boutiques of Lugano, others make this area a base for hiking, cruising the lake, and passing lazy afternoons on the beach.

Direct lake access

The Blue View Cocoon is one of the few places that has direct lake access and private sundeck in the Valsolda area. Guests can jump into the water every morning for an early swim, or spend the day relaxing in the deckchairs of the small deck area. By private boat, one can drive over to have dinner in the opposing lake side’s tiny Italian restaurants or to Lugano, for a fancier experience.
