We enjoyed very much the 4 days we spent in Valentina's home. Her home is in a quiet and pitoresque place in the middle of hiking and biking paradise, close to beautiful towns like Locarno, Ascona and Lugano. The internet connection is perfect.

This little tower house was quite convenient with only 15 min drive from Lugano, but with a bit rural feel. Nice and quiet, the toys at room great for kids to quiet down and enjoy!

Valentina is a great host. We didn't get to meet her but she responded quickly to our messages and was very helpful! She even left some little treats for us which was a lovely welcoming touch. Her house is cute and has character. It's location is good for travelers with cars and without cars as the train station is only 15 minutes away walking. I personally wouldn't recommend it for families with young toddlers who like to 'explore' but it should work for families with children older than 2. The AC near the bedroom was a big plus in the hot summer nights we had while we stayed there.

I'm really thankful to Valentina to accommodate our last moment request! She is a kind and accurate host. The house is exactly as described and well equipped! We could always find a place to park near the house which was quite useful. Good overall experience.
