Once again Villa Lugano proves it has maintained its standard and hospitality over many years. A home away from home. Clean efficient and just works! South Johannesburg does not have many choices if your business is in the area. There is everything you need including a good restaurant in walking distance.

The venue is outstanding. It is a beautiful setting with a classy touch. The staff are professional and very helpful. The grounds are immaculate and one feels as if one has ended up in Tuscany. The food was of high standard and very tasty.
