A village entirely of stone

Holiday village The Rustici della Verzasca are an ensemble of traditional Ticino stone houses ("rustici") that have grown harmoniously over time. They were first converted and used for vacation purposes in the 1960s. The vacation village has grown since then and has always undergone gentle modernizations.

In several smaller and larger rustici are 18 very individually designed vacation apartments. They have their own bathroom, kitchen and outdoor seating area or balcony. Nevertheless, each apartment is unique. Contact us, so that we can find the right vacation home for your needs. Or discover your desired vacation apartment simply by clicking on the interactive map.

Good to know

Stairs and premises

Due to the slope, several stone staircases are present on site. Some rustici have retained typical spatial conditions, such as low door heights, narrower passageways and/or spiral staircases.


The apartments have a fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator, 2-plate stove, cooking and eating utensils, kettle, mocha maker, some with dishwasher. Shopping can be done in Gordola, Tenero and Minusio. Every Monday-Saturday morning at 8 a.m. a bakery van stops above the vacation village where you can get fresh baked goods. Enjoy typical Ticino delicacies for lunch and/or dinner at the adjacent Osteria Paradiso. Reservations are recommended.


Smoking is not allowed in all indoor rooms for fire safety reasons. There is a barbecue area in the vacation village for free use. Please pay attention to the locally valid warning and fire levels. Some vacation apartments have a fireplace for cooler evenings.


Children also get their money's worth in the vacation village: plenty of free space with a playground, a swimming pool, table football, a ping-pong table and boccia. In some vacation apartments your youngest sleep in bunk beds or in the converted attic - fun, games and excitement.

Recreation room

There is a lounge available for individual use. This is equipped with a TV, a game table, books and a fireplace. The entire vacation village has a wireless internet connection.


The sauna with grotto is available to all guests free of charge. Just reserve your visit on the blackboard by the entrance.
