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. Saluti dal Ticino Monika Gmür
