Guest feedback



"We received a very warm welcome and felt at home from the very moment we arrived. In the spotless, cosy apartment we were greeted with a small, lovingly arranged bouquet of flowers on the table, chocolates on our pillows, a home-made fruit cake in the fridge and a bottle of wine... it was immediately apparent to us that our hosts really cared about their guests. And so we experienced the warm hospitality of Tanya and Angelo and their lovely [Border collie] Shep (who got on very well indeed with our own dog). We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Casa alla Cascata. It was hard for us to leave at the end of our holidays. We will definitely return to Casa alla Cascata! Thank you so much for two beautiful weeks!"



Manuel F., Berne, CH, 2012

"The nicest holiday apartment we have ever stayed at in the Maggia Valley!"



Mr. & Ms. Kosche, Berlin, DE, 2010

"The apartment is lovingly furnished with attention to detail: we liked it very much; the garden, the herb garden. Tanya and Angelo are very friendly, attentive hosts and gave us tips and information.
The best apartment we have stayed at ever.

"A hidden gem!" - high up in the village of Maggia with a panoramic view Location (Google Map)

Casa alla Cascata (house by the waterfall) is set in the picturesque village of Maggia, centrally located in the Maggia Valley, a region of outstanding natural beauty.

Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac in the highest, sunniest part of the village (a short walk from the centre) and surrounded by green, the house enjoys a very peaceful atmosphere with magnificent views of the valley and mountains lined with terraced vineyards.



Village of Maggia in the Maggia Valley, Ticino, Switzerland To the north: woods and the Maggia Waterfall;
to the east: terraced vineyards and rustic stone houses;
to the west: vineyard and woods with the Church of San Maurizio in the distance;
to the south: sweeping view of the Maggia valley including Lodano, Moghegno and Aurigeno.


Maggia wildlife The atmosphere

In the morning you are greeted by a chorus of birds chirping happily in the vineyards, trees and bushes; throughout the day, you can enjoy the croaking of frogs and the whirr of grasshoppers in the warm summer air to the rhythm of the cuckoo; in the evening you may catch a glimpse of various wildlife as they venture down from the mountains and out of the woods after dusk. All this to the soothing sound of the Maggia Waterfall.


Maggia Waterfall, Ticino Immediate surroundings

Just two minutes' walk through the woods behind the house is the awe-inspiring Maggia Waterfall (Cascata del Salto, Maggia), a delightful place for swimming and sun-bathing on the large, smooth sun-warmed boulders. The crystal-clear water from the waterfall flows into the Maggia River below, along which there are several other bathing locations.


Village of Maggia in the Maggia Valley, Ticino, Switzerland Maggia village

Situated just 15 minutes' drive into the lush green Maggia Valley, the village of Maggia, home to the valley's tourist office, is the perfect base for visiting the gems of the valley (an area of outstanding natural beauty with its traditional stone houses (rustici), mountain paths with majestic views, and waterfalls and boulder-strewn rivers of crystal-clear water) whilst remaining close enough to the attractive towns of Locarno (13 km) and Ascona (14 km) to enjoy the cultural activities and entertainment on offer there.



Village of Maggia in the Maggia Valley, Ticino, Switzerland Maggia (330 m, approx. 800 inhabitants) is a quaint village of rustic stone houses, winding cobblestone alleys and tranquil vineyards, where lazy lizards lounge in the hot summer sun and sleepy cats bask in the warm winter rays.
