“The small secluded cottage with the fenced plot and the associated forest has we particularly liked. It is nice and quiet and is located on a hiking trail. The walks in the woods were just magical and it has many chestnut trees standing all over the Arial. In the evening we have always made fire in the large fireplace in the room and outside we have grilled. The wood for this is provided by Tiziano & Simona for a small extra charge. We really enjoyed our weekend stay and we would most like to visit this place again next year. It is perfect for relaxing in nature :) We would like to thank Simona & Tiziano for their hospitality and wish them all the best.”
Small house in a very old swiss village in the hills above Ascona. Ideal for people who like hiking in the woods, in a very peaceful area. Only 10 mins from Losone and Ascona and and Locarno. Breakfast is always included. Please note that the owner lives in the house and is always happy to share conversations with guests and offer help and information about the surrounding area. Lgbt friendly.
“Excellent hospitality. Royal service. Very friendly, helpful, kind. Great conversations and amazing English Breakfast. An peaceful and relaxing oasis in an ancient Swiss Alps rock village, a few minutes from lake, walks, grotti... Unmissable part of the Grand Tour of Ticino and Switzerland! Simply the best.”
Small fully furnished Rustico, surrounded by greenery, is located directly on the Chestnut Path and in the vicinity of many interesting excursions on foot or by bicycle. Overlooking the Magliasina river, it is a peaceful and ideal place to relax. Nearby there are farmhouses, restaurants and grottos, but it is also just a few minutes from the city of Lugano. Recommended excursions: Monte Lema, as well as the various educational trails.
“Hi there, we booked the "Rustico" for one week and had a fabulous time there. Natalie was very helpful - even before we arrived she swapped phone numbers with us so that we had an easy communication. The accomodation is what it says - a tiny house. And yet it includes everything that you need: a kitchenette, a dinner table (indoor AND outdoor), a tiny sofa, an oven for cold nights, a rather small bed (with only one blanket - be aware of that in case you are planning a trip for two) and a bathroom with a window. Both the bathroom and the bedroom do not have a very high ceiling (my husband is 1,98 m and he could not stand up straight) but it was no problem as you do not spend much time in there anyway. Natalie also included a barbecue and a hammock in the outside area which was fantastic. The place is only really reachable by car although there is a postbus that stops in the village nearby. The streets that go up the hill are very typical for the area - steep and windy. The surrounding nature is just stunning. There is a tiny stream right next to the tiny house so you have a constant natural noise that is beautiful. Also the area is known for it's sweet chesnuts - so in autumn you would find many chesnuts on the adjacent chesnut trail. Lugano is not far away - it is only a 30 minute drive. And other towns like Locarno and Ascona are within a reachable distance. If you are looking for a getaway in nature with clean air, yummy italien/ticinese food, tranquility and a simple, yet sufficient lifestyle - this is the place to visit. Thanks again to you Natalie for your warm welcome and the uncomplicated communication <3 Anne and Simon”
