    Super gemütliches kleines Haus in den Bergen

    Alles da was man braucht... Ideal für Menschen die Ruhe suchen... Erholung pur.. Da kein Lärm nirgends.... Wer gerne Aktion braucht soll runter fahren nach locarno ca 20 min mit dem Auto.... Oben wird es abends sicher auch kälter aber dafür haben sie dort einen Kamin.... Und was es nicht gibt ist... Und das wird leider leider unserer heutige Generation abhalten zu kommen ist TV und Internet..uns egal.. Wir haben zuhause immer alles in Hülle und Fülle zur Verfügung... Da kann man auch mal das Leben genießen wie es früher auch ging.... Lesen.. Spielen... Kochen... Draussen sitzen und in die Ferne guggn.. Alles möglich... Man muss es sich wie eine Berghütte vorstellen... Und das kleine Steinhaus Dorf direkt dahinter ist einfach schön und anzusehen.... Also Leute wenn ihr eine tolle Berghütte inmitten der Natur sucht... Meldet euch bei den Tognis... Und Bucht euch da ne Woche.... Auch der Parklaptz unterhalb der Hauses war täglich frei und kostenlos.... Die beiden Grottos in der Nähe 2 min und 10 min zu fuss entfernt sehr schön.... Und das hochlaufen zum Haus keine 5 Minuten... Nur den Hügel rauf.. Auf einem beleuchteten Weg.... ☀ auch ab 9 Uhr bis abends da... Alles klasse... Nur einen Koffer würde ich nächstes mal nicht nehmen wollen. Ein Backpacker Rucksack wäre ideal oder ein Offroad Bollerwagen 😁 wir werden sicher noch einmal wieder kommen... Wir konmten uns erholen.. Dafür sind wir in den Urlaub gefahren... Viele Grüße Martina und Christopher... Grüzi und Ciao

    Erholung pur

    Wir haben den Aufenthalt im Haus sehr genossen, vor allem die Ruhe und den Ausblick ins Grüne auf der Terrasse! Das Haus hat alles, was man braucht!

  • 8.0.Very good

    Hoger gelegen vakantiewoning in de bergen met zuiderse inslag

    Gezellige, knusse vakantiewoning met alle nodige voorzieningen in orde, aan de rand van een authentiek gehucht. Uitgangspunt voor bergwandelingen. Bereikbaar via typische Tessiner bergweg. (2 à 3 km)
