Did you know?

Morcote combines the best of two worlds: Swiss perfection and organization as well as Italian charm and "joie de vivre". It is the southernmost village in Switzerland and looking towards the right from the Residenza La Costa you can see the Italian border and the town of Porto Ceresio.

If you are looking for tranquility and beauty you will find that in Morcote.

Historically Morcote was of great importance as it had the largest port on Lake Lugano until the dam of Melide was built in 1847. A wide variety of goods from northern Italy were shipped from Morcote to the rest of Ticino. Morcote was also a famous fishing village.

Morcote can be found on almost every map you will find and is considered "the Pearl of Ceresio".

Morcote was voted the most beautiful village of Switzerland 2016.

250 km from Zurich
80 km from Milan
10 km from Lugano downtown
16 km from Agno Airport

Please note that to use Lugano Agno Airport is actually a delight. It is true that you need to use Zurich or Geneva as a hub, but Agno is very fast from a parking and boarding perspective that almost warrants the additional flying duration of about 35 minutes (to the hub).
