This is an amazingly elegant villa, it really takes you back in time! The villa has been recently renovated. They have done a really great job. It's a good blend of modern and old-style. Our only complaint is that the bedding was rather too soft. But we stayed in another place in Ticino which had also had a really soft bed, so maybe it's a regional thing. Location wise, the villa is in a village that looks completely built by stacking small rocks. When you walk around there, you really get the feeling of what it might have been like a few hundred years ago. It is only a 10 minute drive into Ascona, where you can find many waterfront restaurants. We also did some cooking in the kitchen, which is well equipped. We had an awesome stay here, I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for an authentically rustic holiday villa!

We fell in love with this quaint, comfortable home in Arcegno! Monika was an exceptional host... very accommodating and friendly. She and her husband have certainly put a lot of thought into how to make the home special and inviting for their guests. It was spacious, clean and well-equipped with everything we needed for our stay. We enjoyed eating breakfast and spending time out on the terrace surrounded by 16th century buildings, and also had a wonderful meal at the Ristorante Zelindo just up the road. The area has many opportunities for beautiful hikes and enjoying nature — our children especially liked spending time near the Maggia river. It was an amazing stay and we hope to go back someday! We highly recommend this endearing home and village. Thank you Monika for helping to make our trip even more memorable!

We had a terrific stay at Monika's rustico in Arcegno! She picked us up at the station in Locarno and invited us for dinner as all the shops were closed on Sunday when we arrived. Monika and her husband Ernst are absolutely lovely people, very helpful and welcoming. They showed us hiking routes and gave restaurant tips. Their rustico is spacious, perfectly equipped and we found it in a spotless condition. We adored the terrace and the quite atmosphere of the village Arcegno.

We (two adults and two kids) have decided to extend our vacation in Tessin on a short notice and looked for a nice place with a reasonable price to stay for additional two nights. Monika was very friendly, very responsive and her place is as it is described. It's simple and very charming and the village Arcegno is absolutely fantastic. Entering Arcegno we found the Grotto Lauro which is so far the best Grotto I have been with an owner couple who loves to cook, serve and talk to his guests and also does interesting paintings. We certainly can recommend this place and would go back there for another couple of day's.

Wir haben eine sehr schöne und entspannende Sommerwoche im Rustico von Monika verbracht. Die schlichte aber praktische Einrichtung passt sehr schön zu den alten Gemäuern des Rustico und es hat uns an nichts gefehlt. Sehr schön ist auch der Freisitz. Umgeben von den alten Gemäuern der verwinkelten Rustici bietet er auch im heissen Sommer viel Schatten und eine angenehme Kühle. Monika ist eine sehr freundliche und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin und hat auf jede Anfrage umgehend geantwortet.
