The region around "Lago Maggiore" is the sunniest in Switzerland with 2300 hours of sunshine in the year!
Thanks to the East-West
orientation of the valley and the positioning of the villages on the top southern slope, the Onserone Valley is particularly sunny.
Even on the shortest Winter Day, there are seven hours of Sunshine. The mild climate, being close to the Mediterranean, brings forth
an amazing variety of plants despite its altitude of 691 meters above sea level. Looking about in a panoramic sweep, you will encounter
Palm trees, Vineyards, and stands of Mimosas. Naturally, the Edible Chestnut and Fig Trees are everywhere.
You will be pampered
in an old traditional Ducal Home, (Visconti Clan from Milan). This Residence in the Onserone Valley was build with thick Granite walls
spotting embrasures, a reminder of more unsettled times long gone by . The ceiling beams are original solid chestnut wood and the
granite work was done by Craftsmen at a time when pride in workmanship came before profit.
The house dates back to 1626 and has been
renovated and updated with all the modern conveniences expected by today's sophisticated traveler.
