Where you’ll be

Tegna, Ticino, Switzerland

The nucleus of houses are buildings dating back to the eighteenthcentury protected as a historical asset, today restored following the old traditional processes and taking up its wall decorations from the historical origins of over 270 years ago. In addition, the large botanical garden on five levels allows your soul to be enchanted with countless corners to discover.

I'm a quiet person, I like to cook and go to nature.
In my free time I spend time in the garden to produce fruit, berries and vegetables for the house and our guests.
My travel philosophy is not better, but I love the magnificent landscapes of our Alps, Provence, Brittany, villages and medieval towns.

I've been working on my own as a landscape artisan for almost 20 years, and everything I've learned to do in the years. Together with my family I renovated an ancient eighteenth century house "Casa Gelso 1750", to create a small Guesthouse with rooms and vacation apartments in historic buildings, houses surrounded by a beautiful Mediterranean natural garden. We live and work here on this corner of the land, so we can then share the fruits of our work with guests and friends and enjoy the natural food, jams, herbal and fruit herbal teas, or simply the nature of this place.
Whatever you need, I have a place for you. You won't be disappointed.

In my leisure time I am happy to practice the stand up paddle and mountain walks and before becoming a dad I was also rowing from rowers in Locarno.
