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.

The space

The cottage is set in the traditional Ticinese village of Claro, seated below the idealistic "Monastery of Claro" only a few metres away from lower apline forests and undisturbed nature trails.

The house is a typically alpine Ticinese terraced style cottage with beautiful stone work and vistas of the surronding valley and mountains. Occasionally the night sky offers celestiale scenes, unhampered by the presence of the nearest urban area, the mediaval town of Bellinzona,

Guest access

A quaint room privately accessed, set above the central accomodation, perfect for privacy and individual escursions. The bathroom is located directly extnernally below the room, it could be shared. 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!

The stay at clio was great. It was a very spontanous trip but everything just worked perfectly. The room is small but cosy and everything u need is there (even coffee). Thank you for the extraordinary hospitality.

Perfect! I don't want to sound as I am exaggerating but we found it just perfect. I stayed two times with Clio. She and her husband are super welcoming and friendly, the room is basic but clean and comfortable (so as advertised). It also incorporates a Nespresso coffee machine and capsules as well as tea. The house is about 150 meters of altitude on top of the valley which means the view is superb. And for those who climb: cresciano rocks but there is even a bouldering spot 10 min by foot from Clio's place. We will be back!

Beautiful accommodation and surroundings. Very welcoming and attentive. Had a lovely night and an amazing walk/walk up the hills to the monastery. Worth another trip.

Clio User ProfileClio is a superhost.

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!
