New opening hours

We will be closed on Wednesdays

From next season, both our restaurant (incl. terrace) and the hotel will be closed all day on Wednesdays. 


Why is this? We need more free time to prepare gnocchi and sausages, to place orders, do shopping and other things. In addition, we and our staff want to recharge our batteries one day a week to be able to start fresh and with new energy into the week.


With this decision we want to make both sides happy, even if we are aware that from the customer's perspective a day of rest is not always welcomed.


Opening hours restaurant

09:00 - 18:00 (Wednesday day off)

Warm cuisine: 11:30 - 15:00 

Evening: 19:00-22:00 (in the evening there is always a 3 course menu, reservation required)



New 6-bed bedroom for groups and family


More space and a comfortable bed 
The Corona Pandemic helped us in our decision to change our dormitory into a spacious room with 6 free-standing beds for groups and families this coming March.  Only guests who are familiar with each other can book together. Persons travelling alone have the option of booking a single room.


With this, our guesthouse now offers a total of 17 sleeping places in 6 rooms.

End of season 2020


Dear guests


What a year! What a season!


Nothing was taken for granted, nothing reliable, nothing predictable and nothing consistent. We launched the season with a nine week delay, without much certainty and only with the hope that many guests will stay with us in the restaurant and in the guest house. 

And you have come! Everyday and in large numbers! Many of you visited the Centovalli and Monte Comino for the first time ever. And many others of you have finally joined the circle of our regular customers. You have all enabled us to make the most of a very difficult season. We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. 

The season 2020 is now over and we have closed the doors of our mountain guesthouse until 1 April 2021. And again, the hope continues that the situation will return to normal by next spring. Only one thing is certain: we are looking forward to seeing you again!


Ci vediamo l'anno prossimo!

Welcome back to the wild and romantic Monte Comino


Dear guests, friends

We are looking forward to welcoming you back to carefree and relaxed moments on the Monte Comino as of 8 June. Finally, you can eat, drink and sleep at our place again! Enjoying Gnocchis, Luganighe, Risotto, Formaggini and a good glass of Merlot. This is holidays - this is Ticino!

To make sure that you can really feel comfortable with us, we work hard to provide our little paradise with as much normality as possible and as much security as necessary. We are eagerly awaiting further decisions by the authorities on June 8th, in particular regarding the restrictions of permitted guest groups of a maximum of four people and on the cable cars. We will publish the results on our website from 27 May.

At the moment we assume that even in early summer we will only be able to offer a limited capacity of seats and sleeping places. We therefore recommend making a reservation via, by telephone or using the contact form on our homepage. Reservations for overnight stays are now accepted for the three double rooms and the family room. The 12-bed dorm  will has to wait a little longer.


We thank you for your understanding and are looking forward to seeing you again!

The rooms are ready


We are very happy about the successful reconstruction of the double rooms and the family room. As already on the terrace and in the restaurant, we have incorporated the colours of Monte Comino into our concept. Our guests can now move into the four new comfortable rooms.


A new powerful island system


Here we are talking about renewable energy and not seaside holidays! Since a few days our off-grid property is supplied by a new stand-alone solar system with 21 solar panels and a total storage capacity of 24 KW. Thus we have reached our goal to cover our own consumption by self-produced energy at least in rainy weather. As far as possible, we can now do without the diesel generator. 


Capretto - Easter in the Capanna


At Easter Capretto (Goat) is eaten in the Ticino, also with us in the Capanna. The Caprettos come from our neighbour on the other side of the valley, from the farm of the Meyer family in Rasa, who also provide us with the delicious Formaggini Capras throughout the season. They are by the way called Büsción and not Formaggini, as we learned last year.


We are happy to make reservations for Easter Sunday and Easter Monday

We are renovating - new double rooms from 2019


This year's great demand for 2-bed rooms has confirmed our decision to adapt our accommodation offer to the needs of our guests and to make changes. Next year we will be offering 3 comfortable double rooms and 1 family room. The dormitory with its 12 sleeping places will remain.

Our new double rooms/family rooms are addressed to guests who like some more privacy and comfort. You sleep in a comfortable bed with fresh bed linen. There are towels ready for you.


Here you can find the prices and the reservation form


With warm winter greetings

Season end


After 5 months of uninterrupted sunshine, countless wonderful guests and a lot of effort, the storm "Vaia" with five days of continuous rain, up to 130 km/h gusts of wind, unrooted trees and the first snow gave us an abrupt end to the season. Now it's time to clean up, settle accounts, modify and sleep late.

We will be there for you again from 1 April 2019. We will keep you informed about all the innovations regarding accommodation on our website in the course of the winter.


Many thanks to everyone who visited and supported us! See you again next year.
