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.

Dining Out

Ticino is probably the only place in the world where you can sit on a vine-shaded terrace, eat from an Italian-German menu, enjoy a carafe of local merlot and pay for the meal in Swiss Francs!

Beautiful home with an amazing view

5 of 5
We had 10 wonderful nights in this very spacious, comfortable accommodation. Michaela is a great host and made sure our stay was perfect. I would definitely recommend this home for a peaceful getaway. Thank you Michaela.

Nice house, very well equipped kitchen, but too close to main road, little bit noisy

4 of 5
Beautiful, big garden, well equipped kitchen, and an extra washing machine is there for your comfort. 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.
