There is a fairly new villa in the city. It’s approximately one hundred years old. It has a garden with mighty fir trees and a beautiful little pond with Froebeli water lilies. Up the rolling hills a gentle breeze blows from the west. It is the refreshing breath of the lake Zurich. Only a few minutes away, within walking distance, you will find Bellevue square, the heart of this vibrant Zurich city. But as you open the front door and step inside Signau House and Garden you will feel the embrace of our warm hospitality, exclusive comfort and distinguished style.
