Traditional Ticinese cottage in the twilly village of Claro. A stones throw away from picturesque alpine forest, while being 10 minutes away from the castle laden city of Bellinzona.
A setting perfect for relaxation, social or sporting enthusiasts.

There is a private terrace for relaxation/dining and a seperate traditional ticinese dining area("Pergola")- ideal for early morning breakfasts or summertime apertivos!
The small terraced garden area is ideal for lazing in the ticinese sun.
Access to parking, garden with pergola, and sun lounges.
Wifi access is a given with use of local subscription TV service (includes BBC,ITV, News channels etc, etc.)
Interaction with guests
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!
No smoking room
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!
