The Casa di Sophie is located in a quiet side street of Minusio.

It is a 3 minute walk to Lake Maggiore and you can enjoy either a morning swim or a late evening swim.


The bus stops right outside the front door.


Supermarkets and the Tenero shopping centre are also within a 10-minute walk.

If you want to go for a drink in the evening or have a delicious Italian lunch or dinner, you can reach L'Approdo directly at the port of Minusio in 5 minutes.


Exactly for all boaters, the boat harbour is only 5 min. away ;-).

Have you ever been to the Verzasca Valley?


The Verzasca Valley (Valle Verzasca) is an idyllic valley nestled in an impressive mountain world, ideal for hiking, biking and enjoying nature. The heart of the valley is the emerald-green Verzasca River with its finely polished gorges and deep pools, which invite you to bathe in summer.


It is not for nothing that some bathing spots here are also called the "Maldives of Switzerland".
