Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Ticino, Switzerland your home away from home

Ticino is an Italian-speaking canton situated in the southern foothills of the Alps in southeast Switzerland. The sunny skies draw Italian, Swiss and international visitors to enjoy the fresh mountain area, culture, food and beautiful scenery around Lake Lucerne. Lush wooded hills rise above the blue lakes and red roofs contrast with the bright bougainvillea which flowers here in the summer, giving the area a lovely Mediterranean appeal. The area of Ticino is divided by the Monte Ceneri range which is littered with small villages, each with their own church containing beautiful medieval frescoes and murals of St Christopher, patron saint of travellers.

Our only problem was, that the house is situated by the main road of the Maggia valley, so it was a little bit noisy because of the cars.

The location is a very small ruin village, with other old but beautiful houses. The view is incredible. It;s quiet, green and private. The house has got everyhting you need, the beds are comfortable and everything works on solar power. If we go back to that area of Switzerland, we would definitely stay here again!
