The cozy Rustico is located at the entrance to the Verzasca Valley, in the small hamlet of Fressino, between Contra and the ancient mountain village of Mergoscia.
The beautiful and quiet location with the magnificent views, can be used as a starting point for sporting and cultural occasions and is the ideal place to recover from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Tenero with Lake Maggiore as well as Locarno and Ascona can be reached in a few minutes (10-20 min.) by car.

The space
The homely and cozy Rustico is located near a vineyard and consists of 3 single buildings, 2 of which are connected to each other. In the main building there is the kitchen with living room and above it a bedroom, which is accessible internally via a small staircase and from the outside. In the small Rustico right next to the kitchen is the bathroom. In front of the main building next to the seating area is another Rustico, in which is accommodated the second bedroom (accessible only from the outside) and a cozy, covered sitting area (lounge).

Directly from Rustico you can take wonderful walks and hikes. For example, in just over an hour you can reach Monte Lego where you can enjoy magnificent views and a cozy grotto.

The access to the Rustico is from the parking lot by a short, ascending walk (about 5 min.) on a well-developed hiking trail. Parking is free and sufficiently available along the old road (cul-de-sac - no through traffic). It is also possible to arrive by public transport. The nearest bus stop is about 600 m away.

The cottage has electric underfloor heating as well as the wood-burning stove and an open fireplace for colder days and cozy evenings.
The kitchen is equipped with dishes and cooking utensils including 2 electric hotplates (salt, pepper and oil are available). It also has a Nespresso coffee machine (please bring your own capsules for this). Bed linen and kitchen towels are provided. Please bring your own terry towels and bath towels.
Sunbeds, umbrella and a gas grill are available for outdoor use.

Mergoscia, Ticino, Switzerland

Since it is a small, original hamlet, there are other rusticos in the vicinity. These are used exclusively as vacation homes - mostly by their owners themselves.
