About our home

* Except for national swaps, we prefer swaps of 3-6 weeks *

Our apartment is located in a house within vineyards in Bellinzona, Southern Switzerland. Forest, mountains, lakes, rivers as well as cities (Bellinzona, Locarno and Lugano) are not far away. Since the house is on a hilly place, there is a great view on the Magadino plateau. The apartment is the highest one in a family house. In the ground floor there is a small apartment used by the brother of Zaira when he comes for a stay every now and then or by travelers hosted by Zaira's parents, who leaves in the first floor apartment. Our apartment that we would like to swap with you is in the second (main apartment and wintergarden) resp. optionally the thirdfloor (attic).
The location of the house and the architect's design are great. However, the furniture has a few years now and don’t expect luxury interiors. It's more an industrial-minimalist style (the floor creaks...). The vicinity with the wood, vinejards and meadows brings many insects (wasp, bees, fly, bugs, ...) to reach our apartment despint regular cleaning ;-)
The garden is in common with the other inhabitans of the house. The garden has a fire place and a stone table. The washing machine is in a common area in the ground floor. There is a parking lot.

Where is it?


The house is located in Camorino, district of Bellinzona, capital of Canton Ticino, Switzerland. Surrounded by nature (wineyards, woods and mountains) but not far from the comforts (shops, pharmacies, public transport, ...). From this position it is possible to visit Locarno, Lugano or other beautiful places like different valleys (for example Maggia or Verzasca). Bellinzona has 3 castles that are part of the UNESCO heritage and a characteristic market that is held every Saturday morning. For those who love adventure a few steps away from Bellinzona there is for example the possibility to climb, go mountain biking or canyoning.
