Loft for up to 4 guests situated in a former chocolate Factory in Blenio Valley, a little paradise for outdoor activities: walking, skiing, Cross-country skiing, biking, hiking, climbing, river bathing, exploring... holidays! To enjoy with friends or family in a beautiful old mountain village.

The space
Great loft of 160m2 in the former chocolate factory Cima Norma.
Living-dining area, open kitchen, fully equipped. Separate bedroom with bathroom, WC en suite, bed 180x200.
Separate guest area in the living part with 2 beds (2x90 x 200, can also be used as a king size bed) and private bathroom (shower, WC).
Living-dining area (80m2, 3.60 room height) suitable for dancing, yoga, training, fantastic view on the Blenio valley and surrounding mountains.

Bus stop directly in front of the house.
The loft has been renovated as an apartment and is located in the former packaging area of the chocolate factory Cima Norma, which ceased operations in 1968. Here you are right next to the stream, you open the windows and feel in the middle of nature, perfect for a restful sleep. The various buildings still exude the factory atmosphere and are now used partly as lofts, partly as art, workshop and exhibition spaces (Tango-Encuentro, Blenio art festival, Cima Cità association).

Tourist taxes are not included in the price.

Guest access
The whole loft and a small seating area right at the entrance, as well as various paths, rooms and passages in and around the former factory.
The factory is now used as a place for art exhibitions (Fondazione fabbrica del ciocollato) and as a residence with various lofts.

It has a common laundry room with washer/tumbler that is shared with the other lofts.
However, we have also newly installed a washing machine and tumbler in the loft. Attention: The tumbler is not connected to the sewage system. You have to empty the water from the dispenser after use!

Other things to note
A tourist tax of Fr 3.50 p. person and per day to the local tourist office is payable on site and is not included in the rental price.

Location

Blenio, Tessin, Switzerland

The buildings of the old factory are used for various purposes and, apart from the loft itself, are therefore only accessible when public events are taking place (art exhibitions, workshops).
The whole area is spacious and access to the loft is signalized.
The factory is located between the small villages of Dangio and Torre, in a green area surrounded by woods, streams and meadows.
Hiking and walking trails start right by the factory. Village shop for groceries, pizzeria, bazaar within walking distance.
