What is a true state visit without a dinner and what is a family celebration without breaking bread together? You see, eating together is about so much more than just a necessary pastime to get your required nutrients. It brings out a sense of community, of belonging, and it brings much pleasure and happiness as well.

So take the opportunity in our dining room to introduce yourself to the other guests. Many steadfast friendships have already been forged this way that will last a lifetime. It’s no surprise: Mauro’s cooking makes it easy to ponder and muse over life with the other guests. Or to plan the next trip together.

And by the way, as soon as you hear a bell ringing, that means the buffet in our dining room has been served and you can go and help yourself. We offer half board or full board.

  • Buffet breakfast: 07.30 to 10.00
  • Buffet Lunch: 12.15 to 13.00
  • Dinner: 18.30


Before you go in for dinner, or even after, our grotto is the ideal place for playing cards, chatting or simply enjoying a good glass of wine in our Ticino-style pergola.

Our grotto is not a grotto in the true sense of the word, which means that we do not cook and serve there. But we open a small bar from 10.00 to 22.30 offering snacks and drinks. If you would like to stay a little longer after the bar has shut. As we ask is that you close the windows and doors after 10.30pm (after-hours time), and turn off the lights when you leave the grotto.

Even though Facebook and the WhatsApp are cool, when was the last time you sent a real postcard – the traditional way, not the virtual way? At the grotto, you’ll find everything you need, including stamps. And you are guaranteed to get some great ideas quickly on what to write at our unique location by the lake.
