Location

Claro, Ticino, Switzerland

The nearby world renowned bouldering and Canyoning region of Crescano is literally a 7 minute drive. A three minutes walk from the house and your in old woodland with access to hiking and nature trails that not just pass the unknown mountain vista of the monastery but for those adventurers, leads to the alpine mountains and valleys above. Theres an endless amount of hiking trails with beautiful rivers, waterfalls and granite carved canyons for those with the need to stretch their legs. Diverse local sporting groups offer mountain biking, canyoning, and canoeing,not to mention, skiing, snowbording and ither more "intense" winter sports.
Nightlife, though not a urban centre, is not hard to find after a wee drive/commute. The winter/spring offers Carnival and mainly Wintersport orientated activitis and festivals, with hockey matches being a great way to relax and take in something new. With the hot summer months however, Ticino really gets going, with great outdoor film festivals (Locarno film festival), music festivals (including world famous "Estival Jazz" of Lugano and the "Blues-to-bop") to more local waterside and alpine feasts and parties that you can never tire of.
Apart from organised fun, most people like just chilling and having afternoon drinks or "apertivos" in truly exotic Italian style lakeside settings or more rustic alpine bars.

Hi guys my name is Clio, i m from the Italian speaking region of Switzerland. I wanted to start hosting with AirBnb as i grew to love meeting a diversitude of people through my own travelling experiences, and thought "why not invite travellers to see my world?" I grew up in Lugano and lived in various parts of Switzerland and Europe. As with most Swiss, at heart im a mountain girl loving any opportunity to get "high" through climbing, trekking and snowboarding, the latter which i teach during the winter season. Being a big animal-person i have a "Czechoslavakian wolfdog" and together we are part of the local canine search and rescue team. Apart from my friendly four legged friend i have two cats and an Irish "lad" that i met on one of my ventures to Africa. Jokes aside, Maurice and I are living together for more than one year, as he moved here to work as a doctor in the local hospital. We both love nature and any and all sporting activities,though we dont always have the time! Maurice is a little bit of a nerd, loving science, socially-imbibing, international developments and unfortunately (still) the occasional video game! Most of all however, we welcome good company and new experiences, and hope that you, as guests, will find exactly thus when you come stay in our wee rustic!

During your stay
The hosts, Clio and Maurice, a young Swiss-Irish couple are only too happy to interact and socialise with guests. However we realise that everyone has their need for privacy, ever-more so when on holidays, so the extent and quantity of our interaction is always left to you, the guest.

Though we both work irregular hours, when home we would only be too happy to offer any advise, socialise and depending on time allowances etc act as wanna-be tour guides of the local area!
