La Tortuga

This rustic country house La Tortuga is a family villa, built in 1980 on the southern slopes of Meggen above Lake Lucerne. It is managed almost like a hotel, and is situated near Lucerne. We are located in a quiet , tasteful residential area from where the eye roams unhindered over the lake and mountains. Free parking is available in front of the house. 

Getting there

Thouse giving us advanced notice of arrival by public transport will be collected by us at the bus stop or train station in Meggen and likewise brought there again on departure. The bus station can be reached from our house in 7 to 10 minutes on foot. Bus no. 24 or 25 takes you to the Verkehrshaus (Museum of Transports) in about 7 min.  and in about 17 min. you are in Schwanenplatz in the old part of town (for sightseeing and shopping). To the Lucerne main line train station it takes about 25 minutes from our house. By car you can either go directly to the city where there are plenty of parking facilities (car-park routeing) or you can park your car in Meggen and get to Lucerne Train station or the Transport Museum quickly by S-Bahn (suburban railway). Either way, both the transport  museum and the main line station can be easliy reached. 

Things to do

From our house it is a short walk down to the lakeside (15-20 min), to swim or maybe just to linger a while at some beautiful spot or other.

Meggenhorn Castle, with its park, farm and playground, is well worth a visit on a fine day. At our place in the green countryside you are also always close to the city, offering an extended choice of activities  during your stay with us. There are many forest hiking paths  at the nearby beautiful Meggen forest  and also forest obstacle fitness course (parcours). You can swim in the lake (only summer) or visit the city of Lucerne where you may enjoy a varied cultural program including history, cuisine, shopping, concerts, boat trips, city tours etc. Or you may wish to explore the nearby surroundings of Lake Lucerne: The view and the beauty of "Rigi"  and "Pilatus" mountains, or the slightly more distant "Titlis" may inspire you.
Indulge yourself in one of those unforgettable experiences.
