Charming hotel with a first class restaurant across the road. Oliver was a charming host making the stay memorable. Breakfast delicious. The area is beautiful and much quieter then Lugano. Off road parking is available. We will definately return.

The building and the garden are both lovely, retaining an old world charm but with modern comforts. The owners Luca and Oliver were attentive, friendly, kind and outstandingly helpful without being at all intrusive. The rates were reasonable. Excellent evening meals and lunches were served in the adjacent restaurant owned by the same family. We would love to return, and... More

We felt so warmly greeted by the owners Luca and Oliver, and were looked after with such genuine care and attentiveness.

Hotel Tesserete is run by a lovely couple; both husband and wife speak perfect English, French, and probably German as well as Italian. They were pleasant, the place was clean and more spacious than the other places we had stayed in Ticino, and it was altogether a lovely and restful stay. Breakfast was excellent too.
