Holiday home for senior citizens

Rivabella is a holiday home that guarantees guests the possibility to stay for short periods in private apartments with direct access to care home services.

Perfect for self-sufficient people who do not need continued nursing or medical care, our holiday homes meet the needs for senior citizens’ fun and relaxation, including the security and reliability of their family members.
These facilities provide hotel-level residential services, and, at the same time, we offer the possibility to access complete healthcare services, meeting the needs of elderly guests all round.
Located in Magliaso, in Canton Ticino, a few kilometres from the Italian-Swiss border, Residenza Rivabella is a resort for senior guests surrounded by green and perfect for a holiday or post-acute stay, as well as for long-term stays.
With a large garden overlooking Lake Lugano, with us you will find a discreet, exclusive setting, with all the comforts of a five-star hotel and lots of entertainments to help you live retirement age to the full.
Choosing to spend a holiday, respite or convalescence period in our facility will allow you to enjoy a relaxing, elegant oasis where, with passion, respect, and great professionalism, we do our best to ensure that every guest feels at the centre of our attention and is absolutely “at home”.

The Rivabella Residence has 50 beds, recognised by basic health insurance, and 30 private apartments.
