Palm trees in Switzerland? Who knew.

This 3 bedroom architect-designed villa was built in 1979 above the lake of Maggiore in Brione Sopra Minusio.

The scenic view from the terrace is a fabulous blend of Alpine and Mediterranean…

It hardy feels like the Swiss Alps. But hey, there are cacti in Colorado, so I shouldn’t be surprised.

This delightful house is south-facing, sunlit all day and offers plenty of enjoyment: elegant, rustic architecture, extremely spacious and in good condition throughout.

A interesting side-note about the above listings: they all have “lounges” rather than living rooms.

I’m not even a skier but I’m smitten with that Après-ski mentality!

    The snow views are nice but I would go for the more tropical setting with the Palm trees – must be close to Italy or something?

  • BB Girl says:

    I love them all! But if I had to pick just one… I would go for the fancy historic Swiss Chalet on the lake!

  • Aimee says:

    These are all great – I think I would be happy to inherit (underline inherit) any one of them! :)

  • Betty says:

    I actually do not like the villa with the palm trees – feels to tropical and not at all Swiss to me. The other chalets are divine. Great site, btw!
