Time out by the lake.

Villa Sophia is situated just above the shore of Lake Maggiore, the historic little stone houses of Gerra with its stairs and alleys, under the road and railroad to Italy and the steep slope to Monte Gambarogno (1734m) with its natural terraces and panoramic paths.


Panoramic photos can hardly contain these views in all direction Every weather brings moods to the landscapes that can detach us from everyday life. And the variety of terrains is magical. Have fun!


With a few simple steps, Anita Koba arranges vases, pots, plants, pictures and art objects into small and large eye-catchers. Stylishly, her style runs throughout the house.


High quality bedding and pillow fillings guarantee excellent sleeping comfort. We also emphasize the best equipment labels for the furniture, fittings, surfaces and kitchen units.
