Beside all the amenities it offers for families, couples and solo travellers, the Castello provides a remarkable infrastructure for cyclists as well. A fully equipped bicycle repository, offering towels, fresh water, mechanic tools, air pump, etc. is at every guests disposal and is a perfect starting and arrival point for a tour into one of the dozens of adjacent valleys....

The main restaurant permits al fresco dining under the trees while the kids play on the lawn - it could not have been better! We...

We have stayed at Castello del Sole many times - it is our favorite stop over in southern Switzerland. The last time we were there was in June when the weather in Zurich was cold and rainy, we simply drove down and spent the weekend there. The hotel is rather small but offers great services. It has an amazing garden...
