About the Homestay
Dear people from all over the world
Fancy to experience the incredibly beautiful peripheral alpine regions of southern Switzerland?
Would you like to discover a unspoiled region of Switzerland?
Located in the southern part of Canton Grisions (Graubünden in German), lies the wild and sunny Calanca Valley (Val Calanca as we call it in italian) - Yes, it is the Italian speaking part of Switzerland.
If you love the mountains, nature and enjoy observing wildlife (even from the garden) then you should stay for some time at my home. Not to forget about SILENCE and the stars at night:-)
The valley is a regional nature park Parco Calanca. We are at the south eastern edge of Switzerland, bordering Italy. By car it is only 20 minutes from the UNESCO city Bellinzona with its rich architectural highlights, such as the three castles. You can also take the bus and train.
And yes, public transport services the whole region. So you can arrive by public transport from Zürich to Bellinzona, which takes you around 2 hours. From Bellinzona by public transport to my home takes you around 1 hour. I can help you to look up the transport possibilities.
I am looking forward to meet you soon and give you an insight of the life in the Swiss mountains.
Please contact me for any further information.
I love nature, silence and good local food:-) We are a traditional region for amazin "Grotto" food. If you are intrested in local food traditions check out: Grotti di Val Cama
I dance in my leisure time. In my lifing room is a ballet barre and mirror an dplenty of space for dancing:-)
I have a bike which you can use as well.
