In these times of uncertainty, Switzerland stands as the most secure country in the world for personal and financial safety (“2019 Women, Peace and Security Index”).
Although capitalist to its core, it is: one of the worlds happiest and healthiest countries; among the world’s 20 largest economies; Western Europe’s lowest tax rate; a neutral country with humanitarian outreach (“2019 The New York Times”).

Situated on an Alp in the Swiss-Italian Lake District in the medieval village of Soazza, Cimavilla circa 1335 is an impeccably-restored 18-room stone residence with granite roofs and a unique 1719 wooden internal footbridge (“passerella”) connecting the two medieval houses. Soazza is a restored intimate medieval village without peer for its location, architecture, culture, and environment. Soazza (population 310) was recently named one of only 20 villages on the “Grand Tour of Switzerland.”

Situated midway between Bellinzona and San Bernardino, Soazza has easy access to Lakes Maggiore, Como and Lugano as well as to skiing and St. Moritz to the north. The village has two historic churches; a restored Capuchin monastery; protected chestnut forest; looking out on Mesocco Castle, one of Switzerland’s largest.

Cimavilla is a Swiss Heritage landmark and has been exquisitely restored with guidance from the State Historical Commission to highest standards. It features: a rustic patrician main house; two independent private apartments; a sunny Mediterranean climate; palm trees; original wood and stone floors; 17th century wood-paneled library; two-story living room with Renaissance fireplace and Romeo-Juliet balcony; 3 bathrooms are en suite (one a spa); all modern amenities.

Cimavilla is situated in a safe-and-secure environment with world-class lakes, streams, mountains, nature, Swiss hospitality and easy access to Zurich, Lucerne and Milan yet a world apart.

Favorable tax venue and low operating costs.
