About this apartment

The charming 2.5 room apartment (55 m2) with a little courtyard is located in a historic house from the 17th century. The Swiss artist Fritz Meijer lived and worked in this picturesque setting for many years. The self-catering apartment is newly renovated and equipped with a modern kitchen (incl. dishwasher and microwave), an antique fire place, telephone, internet, TV, bed linen, towels, washing machine and dryer.


What is unique is that the "Appartamento Cortiletto" is located in the middle of the historic village of Gandria - at the same time, the apartment is a very intimate and quiet place. It represents the oldest part of the house which probably goes back even beyond the official construction date (1659). 100 years back, the apartment used to host an "osteria" - some signs can still be seen on the facade. From the 1930s the Swiss artist Fritz Meijer lived and worked in the house, which was even featured in the film "L'ultima speranza". We fell in love with the house and bought it - and then gradually renovated it. It was not a project for the faint-hearted.
