Description of the holiday rental
The charming penthouse, with a magnificent view of the surrounding mountains and in particular of the highest mountain in Ticino (Adula 3402 m a.s.l.) from which it takes its name, is located on the top floor of an old Ticino house that was skilfully restored in 2022 (Cà Nizza) in Marolta (a hamlet of the municipality of Acquarossa in the Blenio Valley). The place offers the possibility of a relaxing and regenerating stay in a so-called "energy place" in contact with nature and the traditions of one of the most fascinating valleys in the Southern Alps. The building, built from the end of the 18th century onwards, retains the typical features of the time: rafter roof, mighty stone walls, centuries-old larch beams, typical balcony terraces and large stone vaulted cellars.
The attic welcomes its guests into spacious, light-filled rooms and is characterised by the skilful integration of ancient elements (massive stone walls, exposed beams, restored doors and details) with the most modern comforts (complete kitchen in visible antique wood, fireplace stove, bathtub with hydromassage and experience shower). Even the furnishings are a blend of the traditional and the contemporary: refined and functional at the same time to allow guests to fully enjoy the special energy that the house releases.
The arrangement is structured on two levels with an important open loft at the centre connected by an antique granite staircase. On the first level there is a solid wood kitchen, large living room, master bedroom and bathroom with separate additional WC. The second level houses a large loft used as a reading room and a very special attic room with a round bed, a third extra bed and a view of the starry sky thanks to two special ceiling windows. The flat also has an external ballatoio (typical period terrace) for exclusive use with a magnificent view of the panorama and the surrounding mountains. The ancient vaulted cellars of the building are also accessible and offer the possibility of serving some local delicacies (cheeses, wines, etc.). From here, it is possible to reach and enjoy the common garden of the house.
It is ideal for couples or families who wish to spend a week or more immersed in the splendid scenery offered by the natural basin in which Marolta is located, in an ancient building full of history, without renouncing intimacy and modern comforts.
Marolta can be reached by public transport or by car. For the former, it will be useful to consult the official timetables, in particular those of the Autolinee Bleniesi; for those arriving by car, there is a public car park located 50 m from Cà Nizza.
The place offers countless possibilities for hiking or mountain biking, either directly from the house or after a short trip to the Lukmanier region, the Greina valley or the Nara area.
