Casa Travella was founded in 1987 when Linda & Pietro Travella saw an opportunity to offer Italian property for sale on Lake Como, where Pietro comes from. At this time there were very few companies indeed that offered any property for sale in Italy or Switzerland. Now 34 years later our new exciting venture is to offer property on Italian speaking, Swiss part of Lake Lugano and its surrounding area.
The company is fronted by Linda Travella and Casa Travella started selling property on Lake Como, where Pietro comes from and Linda had worked and lived. The company were able to offer advice on numerous properties and ongoing help with all aspects of the buying process. If a client wants to carry out work on a property, then we can source the best tradesmen and professionals. The Casa Travella team are multilingual with English, Italian and Spanish being spoken.
Linda realised that there was a demand for differing types of property. The company offers a personal service and is able to offer a taylor made service to clients. The company flourished and in 1994 Linda was presented with an award by the Mayor of Como for promoting tourism on Lake Como with Gianni Versace being placed in 2nd place! Throughout the 1990’s the business continued to develop and Linda joined The Federation of Overseas Property Developers, Agents and Consultants and was very quickly asked to sit on the committee, and in 2000 with became the Federation’s first woman chair, a post she held for 4 years.
When the BBC was looking for someone to speak on BBC Breakfast News about European property Linda was chosen to appear live on the programme. Other TV and radio programmes followed including Radio 5 Live, and ‘I want that House’ with Mark Simpkins, where Linda appeared in 6 episodes, the last one being live from Florida. Linda appeared for RTE Irish TV and for Channel 4‘s ‘A Place in the Sun’ where she accompanied Amanda Lamb along the shores of Lake Como by boat, to show her some of the stunning villas, including the one owned by George Clooney.
Linda says: ‘I feel proud that we can offer property for sale in many areas of Italy. Casa Travella is now proud to expand its property offering to Canton Ticino, Lake Lugano and are able to give clients independent and professional advice on areas to suit their budget and needs.
The Casa Travella team look forward to helping you with your Swiss property purchase or sale of your home in Canton Ticino.
