Your host Monika Gmür makes dreams come true in ‘Casa Martinelli’. The ‘Casa Martinelli’ is ideally located, offering both the tranquillity of the rugged Maggia val-ley and easy access to the holiday destinations of Ascona and Locarno at the lake ‘Maggiore’. The house is over 300 years old and sits in a quiet, accessible and protected valley of meadows and forests. The well-known architect Luigi Snozzi harmoniously linked a new block of comfortable guest accommodation with the lovingly restored 17th century stone building. The backdrop features a romantic church and the ‘Salto’ waterfall, which tumbles down from majestic heights into a natural clear pool, inspiring swimmers and divers alike.In the evenings Monika’s guests like meeting up for a night cap in the vaulted Cantina or under a starry sky. Thus days draw to a close enveloped by the murmur of the waterfall and the singing of cicadas in the meadows, and your stay becomes a truly unforgettable dream.

The chese you enjoyed was a "büscion".
It is a typical soft goat-chese, made from Maurizio, our chese-maker at Maggia.

Splendid rooms with all facilities, splendid breakfast and very nice personal makes the stay an experience. Waterfall quite close to the house. The new part of the hotel is quite interesting, by itself it would be probably almost "cold" as it is built of concrete....More
