As the host family it is of great concern to us that we make your stay with us exiting, uncomplicated, restorative and pleasurable.

Turn you back against the daily slog and decelerate in our hotel. Come for some peace and be inspired by the untouched nature and your explorations. Together with our team of staff we look after you totally individually and personally.

We look forward to bringing you somewhat closer to our wonderful region and that we will be able to welcome you here soon.

Your hosts
Famili A. Erni

Our hotel lies in the heart of Malcantone, at 800 metres above sea level, in the small village of Cademario. At just twenty minutes by car from the major Ticinese city Lugano, you feel like you’ve been transported back in time to another era: here, the untouched nature and unspoilt villages are not just an advertising claim – they really exist.

From the thirty modernised and charming rooms, you can look out on our idyllic garden, the inviting pool complex, and Monte Lema. Nothing will disrupt your holiday – except the chirping of the birds in the morning.

You’ll be in excellent culinary hands in our à-la-carte restaurant, which has been awarded 13 Gault Millau points. In our quaint grotto you can feast on typical Ticinese specialities.

After a walk on one of the many hiking trails starting out right from our front door, our 1000m2 spa and wellness area awaits you.

Don’t worry, you’re not dreaming. You can focus completely on your holiday. We’ll take care of the rest.
