The House is located in Ponto Valentino in the Blenio Valley north east of Biasca, Switzerland.

In the local area there is the Nara ski area which is accessible from the village of Leontica, the old Cima Norma chocolate factory in the village of Torre and the ruins of Serravalle Castle (Italian) which dates back to 1176.

The House is in the middle of the Blenio Valley, an area which, unlike other parts of Ticino has an ideal mix of open countryside and places to walk, together with many local services such as cinemas, restaurants and supermarkets.

At the top of the valley the Lago di Luzzone reservoir is very picturesque and is well worth a visit.


The village of Dongio hosts an annual international 10km road race, The Giro Blenio, the Elite event, the Blenio Grand Prix attracts runners from all over the world.
