Orselina offers plenty of sun, some grocery stores and views of the lake and mountains. Locarno with many shops, restaurants and culture is a 5-minute drive, and a 20-minute walk. Gear train, bus or taxi are cheap.

The space
The apartment is about 40 m2 (including separate kitchen and bathroom), bright, clean and modern furnished. The two folding beds of 90 x 200 cm are very comfortable. There is a flat-screen TV with satellite connection, free Wi-Fi and stereo. The lockable kitchen is equipped with fridge, stove, oven, Nespresso coffee maker, microwave and dishwasher. Olive oil, spices, cutlery and crockery are provided. The bathroom with shower cubicle is simple but convenient. There is also a hairdryer. The highlight is the large balcony with table, chairs, deck chairs, electric grill, lanterns and great views.

In the renovated 70s terraced settlement there is a beautiful heated indoor swimming pool, sauna, small fitness center, ping pong table, huge southern planted sun terrace,... It's a great place to relax. You will feel comfortable here and feel the Italian Dolce Vita from day one.

In the vicinity there are several cozy grotti (Italian restaurants). The local mountain Cardada/Cimetta invites you to beautiful hikes with a view. The pilgrimage church Madonna del Sasso, restored in 2013, is a worthwhile destination directly in the village of Orselina. The very nearby Locarno offers a beautiful old town with many beautiful boutiques, hundreds of restaurants and many cultural events such as the Moon & Stars Music Festival or the Film Festival. Course ships take you daily to various Italian markets, e.g. in Canobbio or Luino. Milan can be reached in about 1.5 and Genoa (Mediterranean!) in 3 hours.

There is an office in the settlement, which is staffed daily and is available for guest support of all kinds:

Margherita Loetscher, Phone 0041 91 743 67 44, Email info@collinadoro.ch

Here you can inquire about the currently available days and prices (CHF 60.00 to CHF 100.00) before booking. The minimum stay is 2 nights. Longer-stay rates are negotiable.

They have the option to bring their own bed linen and towels, or to rent them. A set of bed linen and towels and shower towels costs CHF 22.00 for 2 persons. Final cleaning costs CHF 84.00. Regardless of length of stay.

So: Book and enjoy! (Ticino is also very nice and cheap in autumn).
