“Celebration“ (Song by Cool & The Gang)
Our “Mansion on the Hill” (by Bruce Springsteen), the Garden Villa, is situated within the romantic recreational area of the Tribschenhorn right above the shore of Lake Lucerne just on the outskirts of town. Its extensive, inviting garden and funky party room are open for private, non public events. Here our guests can participate in our little paradise that we have steadily created by dedicated work. We take loving care of our beautiful sanctuary. Please learn more about the interesting history of this special place and the story about us: Because “Life is a Song Worth Singing” (by Teddy Pendergrass). So please also “Listen to your Heart” (by Roxette).
We care a lot about our dear guests and we “Wish You Were Here” (by Pink Floyd). The Garden Villa is ideal for all kinds of events. Celebrate your wedding, your birthday, a baptism, a communion, the passing of your exams, a company event or just throw yourself a party and celebrate life. “Live is for Living and Living is Free” (by BJH). The Garden Villa is the perfect venue – be it for an intimate, small party or for a larger number up to 150 “Shiny Happy People” (by REM) spread over the whole area. We always create a special individual setting for your unique and unforgettable event. Then we are very grateful for the appreciation we constantly receive from our guests in their praising comments.

Garden Area ca. 800m²
Enjoy “Seasons in the Sun” (by Terry Jacks). The extensive Garden Villa park with its seductive garden offers throughout all four seasons impressive views and discoveries. First sight is of our wide open enchanted garden, framed by huge trees serving as signposts leading into our property. Then stroll up the garden path, take a seat on the cosy garden benches and start to feel relaxed, as being in another world “Lazy on a Sunny Afternoon” (by The Small Faces). Enjoy some light hearted partying, spoil your guests, sip a nice cocktail, listen to your choice of music or the birds singing, watch the flowers grow and later enjoy a sumptuous meal. Then with the help of a colourful sunset, mellow illumination, torches, candlelight, an open fire, romantic moonlight and shining stars, your event is in the perfect mood.
Chill-out & Look-out Space ca. 100m²
“Relax” (by Frankie Goes to Hollywood)! Just behind the Garden Villa lies the highest point of he Wartegg crest which abruptly drops off steeply. There in a pretty clearing of the forest we created a pleasant lounge area to chill out at a fantastic look-out. Truly a spectacular eye-catcher. Enjoy the glorious view of the boat harbour, the lake and the city. During the day you see a panorama more authentic then the sights photoshopped in any tourist brochure. At dusk you may be enchanted by a colourful sunset. At night the mystic lake reflects the pretty “City Lights” (by William Pitt) of Lucerne and you experience the ultimate flash. You feel “Comfortably Numb” (by Pink Floyd).
Lounge & Bar area ca. 45m²
A bar called “Heaven” (by Talking Heads). This covered and all around sheltered outdoor lounge with its warm but cool design and fancy bar serves as centre point. Depending on your event this area can be used for apero and small dinner setting or just as a retreat to laze. The lounge is equipped with speakers, beamer, blue TV and giant screen.
Party Room ca. 60m²

Its interior resembles a museum with a retro touch in a catchy shabby chic style with seductive lighting and cosy sofas. It’s fully equipped with professional sound system, beamer, DVD player, blue TV and giant screen. While partying and dancing away time may stand still due to the impressive collection of original CDs, LPs and even Tapes throughout most genres back to the 60‘s. “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” (by Cindy Lauper), “Boys Keep Swinging” (by David Bowie).
Tent ca. 60m²
“Shelter from the Storm” (by Bob Dylan)! Our stylish roomy tent (10x6m) on gravel ground can comfortably sit up to 70 guests. It is totally weather proof and offers shelter from any meteorological condition such as light summer rain, heavy storm and blistering sunshine. In cold weather it is cosily heated. The tent also serves as extended event area, such as protected location for a band or a food buffet or as parking lot for strollers… “Wig-Wam Bam” (by The Sweet). Thanks to the elegant all around transparent walls our guests always have the feeling to sit midst the garden. And if we open the walls like curtains you even forget the roof above your head. Functional facility, romantic lighting and decent decoration are standard and with some additional creativity there are no limits. Snug in and feel pleasant…
Thomas as leading Garden Villa mastermind, “Leader of the Pack” (by The Shangri-Las) and contact for all matters together with his wife Deborah as his indispensable supporter and adviser, lady of the house and gifted master gardener are the two creative characters behind the Garden Villa.
