About the property

5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 guest toilet, large terrace and garden

** Minimum stay during holiday times is 7 nights **

In the wild-romantic environment of Centovall, Ticino, this marvelous holiday home offers you 5 bedrooms on 4 floors (210 square meters) with enough space for 9 guests. We lived there ourselves for about 6 years, so the furniture and equipment are individual and comprehensive:

Downstairs there is a guest toilet, a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, oven, stove, Nespresso machine and numerous kitchen utensils. Washing machine and dryer (access under the front steps) and are included in the Condominio: extra charge for usage (20Rp. / 20min).)

The open living and dining room is the center of the house, the fireplace and the dining table for 8-10 people provide space for convivial moments even on cooler evenings. Hi-Fi Equipment: CD radio with mp3/iPhone-connection, dig. TV, Wi-Fi throughout the building.

The first terrace (15m ²), also equipped with table and chairs, surrounded by citrus, oleander and olive trees, leads to the garden (40m ²). On hot days, the stone table in the shade of a pergola invites you to relax, listen to the noise of the Isorno river. In the evening a barbeque for the whole family can be organized: a BBQ area is available.

In the 1st Floor are two bedrooms with double beds (140cm and 160cm) plus the children's room with a single bed and cot (max for toddlers to 4 years). In addition, a bathroom with shower and separate toilet and changing table.

The 2nd Floor offers a bright and open grand piano room with a seating area and a small traveling library, Hi-Fi System and dig. TV. Likewise, a bedroom (160cm bed) and directly attached bathroom with tub and toilet.

A glass door separates the attic storey from the open staircase. Equipped with a 160cm bed, small sitting area and a desk, this room is the 'eagle's nest' of the house: the fully glazed windows offer a fantastic view into the valley of Isorno.

A reserved parking is located on the opposite side of the Isorno in 250m distance.

Location:

The large stone house was originally a pasta factory, hence the name Pastificio Vecchio. It is just off the impressive Ponte dei Cavalli, between Intragna and Golino. The private access to the river Isorno leads to romantic rock bathing places (not really suitable for small children). Across the bridge to Golino, it is not far (5min) to the nearest sandy beach with very shallow water.

The property was purchased in the 70's by architect Tobias Ammann, lovingly restored and converted into individual flats and apartments. For rent will be the largest part of the building (210m2).

Within the Condominio is also the famous Ristorante Ponte dei Cavalli, with its simple, fresh and genuine cuisine, inviting you to linger culinary. [CHANGE TENANTS; CURRENTLY CLOSED]

About Katharina Trudon-Ruoff

Since 1976, family owned, we acquired the house in 2005 and lived there himself. As it pulled us in a bigger city, it is now rented out and we would be happy if many guests can also enjoy the unique charm of this special house!

Katharina Trudon-Ruoff purchased this house in 1976

Why Katharina Trudon-Ruoff chose Locarno & Valleys

Gorgeous location, somewhat isolated from the summer tourism in Ticino, yet only 10 minutes drive from Locarno. Good starting point for excursions into the valleys of the Sottoceneri (Centovalli Onsernone Valley, Valle Maggia).

What makes this house unique

Cozy, yet sophisticated equipment, plenty of room, terrace, garden with pergola and stone table.

Wildromantisch, sehr gemütlich!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren zu sechst (3 Paare) für 1 Woche in diesem wunderschönen Haus zu Gast. Inneneinrichtung ist top (sogar mit Nespresso Maschine!), alles sehr gepflegt und geschmackvoll eingerichtet.

Der Garten und die Terasse sind urgemütlich und perfekt zum Frühstücken, Sonnenbaden und Lesen. Den Grillplatz haben wir dank des guten Wetters fast täglich benutzt.

Direkt vom Haus weg gelangt man über eine kleine Treppe an den Fluss, in dem man wunderbar baden kann - Achtung, das Wasser ist recht erfrischend.

Der Parkplatz befindet sich ca. 200 Meter entfernt, zum Ein- und Ausladen konnte man aber auch kurz direkt vor dem Haus halten.

Die Lage ist insgesamt super und war für uns Ausgangspunkt einiger Ausflüge (obwohl wir eigentlich vom Haus selber fast gar nicht weg wollten).

Fazit: tolles Haus für jeden Geschmack - als Ausgangspunkt für zahlreiche Aktivitäten (z.B. Wandern, Fahrradfahren etc.) oder auch einfach zum Relaxen.

Urgemütliches Zuhause mit toller Ausstattung!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren nun schon dreimal in diesem wunderbaren Haus zu Gast, diesesmal mit 4 Erwachsenen und 4 Kindern. Auf den 4 Etagen kann verläuft es sich recht gut, so dass man nie den Eindruck hat man "sitzt aufeinander" - auch bei regnerischen Tagen, von denen wir leider 2 hatten.

Besonders hervorzuheben ist die geschmackvolle Einrichtung, ganz anders als sonst in Ferienwohnungen üblich! Da unsere Kinder schon größer sind, konnten wir auch die Badestelle direkt unterhalb des Hauses nutzen (beim Vermieter nach dem Schlüssel fragen!). Ein Auto finden wir notwendig, da die Bähnchenstation doch etwas weit ist zu Fuss als Grosseinkäufer viel zu tragen ist.

Top: Ruhe, rauschender Fluss, gehobene und geschmackvolle Einrichtung

Negativ: keine Parkmöglichkeit direkt am Haus, es kann nur kurz gehalten werden um Einkäufe auszuladen (Parkplatz 200m weit weg)

Fazit: Wir würden diese Unterkunft auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen da wir uns alle pudelwohl gefühlt haben und kommen sicher wieder
