In these times of uncertainty, Switzerland stands alone as the most secure country in the world for personal and financial safety (“2019 Women, Peace and Security Index”).Among the world’s 20 largest economies, Switzerland has a low tax rate, small government, and capitalist to its core. Soazza is a restored medieval village without peer for its combination of location, architecture, culture, and environment. .

Sitting up on an Alp overlooking a valley in the Swiss-Italian Lake District, Cimavilla is an impeccably-restored circa 1335 18-room stone residence with granite roofs and unique 1719 wooden covered footbridge (“passerella”) connecting two medieval houses. Soazza (population 310) was recently named one of only 20 villages on the “Grand Tour of Switzerland.”

Situated midway between Bellinzona in Ticino and the San Bernardino tunnel to Zurich, Soazza provides ready access to Lakes Maggiore, Como and Lugano as well as skiing and St. Moritz to the north. This medieval village has two historic churches, a restored Capuchin monastery, protected chestnut forest, and views to Mesocco Castle, one of Switzerland’s largest.

Cimavilla Circa 1335 is a place of rare distinction. A Swiss Heritage landmark it has been authentically restored with guidance from the Graubunden historical commission to the highest standards. It features a 10-Room Patrician Casa, and two independent private apartments; sunny Mediterranean climate with palm trees; original wood and stone floors; 17th century wood-paneled library; two-story living room with Renaissance granite fireplace and Romeo-Juliet balcony; bathroom spa; and all modern amenities.

This in a safe-and-secure Swiss environment with world-class lakes, streams, mountains, and nature. Ready access to Zurich, Lucerne and Milan, yet a world away.

Favorable tax venue and low operating costs.
