Covering captivating small hotels, pensioni, auberges, inns and guest houses

Our places to stay in Ticino come as something of a surprise, like the canton itself. On the warm, southern side of the Alps, this is Switzerland’s Italian-speaking region, with all the blessings of both Italy and Switzerland: mountains lakes, sunshine and flowers.

  Here our reporters have found places to stay that reflect this Mediterranean feel, with simple furnishings, many a sun terrace and bacony, but still the Swiss passion for quality, cleanliness and efficiency. Several overlook the spectacular lakes of Lugano and Maggiore.

  As elsewhere, our selection of places to stay in Ticino offers an exceptionally interesting range to choose from: guesthouses, restaurants-with-rooms and small hotels. Whichever, they all have the special qualities of hand-picked character and charm we seek out.
