A Refuge in Buonas, Switzerland

Courtesy of Engel Volkers Switzerland

475 years have given this unique estate an incomparable charm. For centuries it was inhabited by generations of farmers. It was discovered by the architect Heinz Marty, restored with great effort and attention-to-detail. A charming guest house and a rustic carport were added later. These three buildings comprise the farmhouse-ensemble “Refuge” in Buonas, enclosed by private and extremely well-kept gardens with precious trees. The original character of the house is reflected in the exposed beams and wooden walls and is complemented by details worth protecting such as a closet with a watches box, the blue tiled wood stove or the original Fish Scale Parquet flooring. Ambience, Elegance and Design have created this rarity – where the rooms offer you absolute relaxation.

The location is on the western shore of Lake Zug, on the Buonas peninsula extending well into the lake. Buonas (“the nose of the beech”) is covered by dense green beech forest which turns into vast meadows and the considerable hamlet Buonas. At the foot of the residential area, right next to the historic restaurant Wilden Mann, is the “Refuge”, with its terrace and floor-to-ceiling living room
window with magnificent views of the lake, the Zugerberg and the Rigi. Buonas belongs to the municipality Risch, one of the lowest tax rates in municipalities in the tax haven Zug.
