A charming, intimate and elegant hotel with twelve completely unique bedrooms, designed during the renovation of a patrician house originally from ‘600. Between lake and sky, just a few steps from our 172-hectare vineyard you can immerse yourself in this breathtaking nature, a place that tells its story and awaits your visit!
The name of the Relais takes its origin from the castle of Morcote, the only medieval fortress in the Lugano territory and heart of the family’s vineyard, where high quality wine, olive oil and honey are produced. During your stay, you will be surrounded by an elegant and welcoming atmosphere, a whispered luxury given by the care that has been dedicated to every detail in order to enhance this historic building, a former seventeenth century convent, transformed into a charming hotel with all the comforts and privacy that a villa can offer. An intimate Mediterranean garden welcomes you to relax, sunbathe or sip an aperitif at sunset, while enjoying a wonderful view of the lake and the surrounding mountains. Two restaurants – La Sorgente (situated inside the Relais with a splendid terrace) and Vicania (immersed in the greenery of the vineyard) offer the best of authentic local cuisine. Thanks to our winery, you will be able to enjoy a variety of exclusive experiences related to the world of food & wine and nature. Set out to discover the best wines of the territory, visit the medieval castle surrounded by vineyards overlooking the lake, go hiking through vast meadows and bright forests of beech and chestnut trees, enjoy yourself on electric mountain bikes and endless network of scenic trails. We simply want to offer you the best: a truly unique experience that will remain in your memory forever!
