A wonderful and quiet place!

This 300 year old house with a modern standard is located in a tranquil, natural and impressive surrounding.

The house and its surroundings have a fairytale like, rustic, charming and mystical ambience. The perfect place to relax, enjoy and be.

Hiking, swimming and outdoor-activities at location or just a few minutes away.

Shopping and entertainment close by. Lago Maggiore is only 20 min. away by car or bus.

Fire place and wood stove must be used in winter.

The space
This Boutique Rustico is set up charmingly in an antique but warm and friendly way. When you enter this home, you are going to have a special and magical experience. I have given much care for artful and gentle design combined with functionality and modern equipment. You can be sure that you are going to have a peaceful and inspiring time here.

It is important to know that in colder seasons the antique wood stove should be used. There is also an open fire place. Please prepare well for this experience. After booking I will send detailed handbooks and information which must be read beforehand and followed. This serves your safety and the preservation of valuable equipment, furniture and the house itself. This is an old stone house and one cannot expect the comfort a modern house has today. Temperatures in Winter can be at times moderate. Sun hours on the shortest day of the year are only about 5 hours, yet with possibilities of stretching those hours depending on your activities.

Guest access
Access to all rooms. You will have the place to yourself.

Other things to note
I would like to ask you to read the guidelines and infos thoroughly before booking. This is an old stone house, and especially in winter, certain house rules and conditions are important to know of.

WHAT ELSE SHOULD YOU KNOW?
- This is a private home that is occupied all year round.
- No parties, excessive alcohol consumption and inappropriate noise emissions are tolerated
- Children as from 2 years of age count as additional persons. Up to 2 years of age free of charge.
- In winter and colder seasons you will have to use the antique wood fired stove and/or open fire place. Wood is free of charge from own production and forest. User guide must be read and followed!
- Sadly, no fires are allowed outside due to draught and vicinity to the forest.
- Casa Linda has an abundant garden from which one can harvest. We would like to ask our guests to water garden and pot plants when need be.
- For some people the drive to Mergoscia can be a little adventurous as the road is curvy and narrow at times. The official and tarred road can be used all year round, also in winter. It is always being ploughed.
- No restaurant or shopping facilities in Mergoscia, yet within reach of only 15 to 30 minutes by car or bus.
- Bus goes daily from and to Locarno every couple of hours.
- Free street parking. 3 minutes by foot to the house with some stairs.

On the shortest day of the year (December) there is only about 6 hours of direct sunlight.

Location

Mergoscia, Ticino, Switzerland

The house is located right above the forest with an amazing and open view onto mountains, lake (Vogorno), open sky and green spaces. Mergoscia is a beautiful, friendly village with many old rock houses, small alleys that can be explored and at times one seems to in an ancient world. Yet, it is only 15 - 20 minutes from shopping, swimming and entertainment venues that can be found in Locarno, Ascona, Bellinzona and Lago Maggiore. Italy can be reached within only 40 Minutes. Milano can be reached within the hour.

This holiday home is perfect if you want a quiet and natural surrounding and a time to just be...

Hello world We are two modern nomads, who, besides our daily engagements, try to enhance the beautiful and conscious aspects in life. We are continuously inspired to put this into practice, even though we may not always succeed. Yet, we’re keeping at it and therefore the path becomes the goal. We live in three different places, and each one provides not only diversification and leisure but also beneficial tasks and moments that help us to keep our inspiration high, our inner being strong and our mind more at peace. Meditation, gardening, cooking, nature, handicrafts and our two dogs are essential parts of this journey. We are pleased to be sharing this world that we live in, that we create and that we are. With this aim we want to impart more than just a holiday experience. Here you are going to engage in a lifestyle with a philosophy that makes sense, empowers and does good. With love Daniel & Simone
