Re: LUGANO - best areas to live

The Zurich Platinum Coast is the place to be these days.

First off, let's look at the facts first:

1) Sfr. 7,000 is around 9,300 Australian dollars.
2) Malpensa airport is in Italy and crossing the border can be murder at times
3) You'll find more English speakers near Zürich, Zug and Geneva
4) You'll find better educational institutions in Zürich, Zug and Geneva
5) Lugano to Zürich is two hours by train

My personal opinion:
- move to the Zürich/Zug area, which are both on a lake and have lovely views
- It only takes 30-45 minutes by train from the airport to your home
- You can vacation anytime in Lugano
- I think you'll be less lonely in Zürich/Zug due to all the English speakers available in the area

You're obviously financially well-off (unless you're a troll or you've got your math wrong) and have the resources to move quickly if you don't like the area you live in. Unfortunately, the tax situation is different in each area you've suggested, which is something you may also want to take into consideration.

You're lucky to have that kind of money which provides you the freedom to move where ever you want.

Good luck
