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.

It was so convenient to get to the slopes (bus every half hour from 2 minute walk away). The housekeeper and host were both great at communicating (especially given it was the holiday period). The place was well equipped and plenty of space for the four of us and all our Christmas/ski gear. Would definitely stay again!

Enjoyed the pool, kids for messing about and a nice size for swimming (working off holiday sense) and enjoyed table tennis and the trampoline and lawn good size for a game of badminton. Views from the house are stunning. Nice walks from the house up the hill to Monti Viro and going down to Vira. House very well equipped and very clean. We enjoyed every meal on the veranda around the big table, which sate all of us very comfortably and again with great views. And not to forget my Dog was also very well catered for, with the large garden and we enjoyed our morning walk up the hill. So I can only highly recommend it and hope myself we will be able to return sometime. Many thanks to Verena. Colin & Franziska Smith
