Figino is a charming ex-fishing village in Ceresio, on the banks of Lake Lugano. Southern flair is also noticeable at the youth hostel. The luxuriant vegetation, the appropriately styled patrician's house, cooking with a Ticino accent and the nearby lake entice one to a refreshing stay with Dolce far niente. There are certainly several things to be discovered - not least the picture book villages in one of the traditional holiday regions of Ticino.
Italian and Quality
A forest, a bowls alley, two nature areas, a great change. Stay in the old patrician's house and its adjacent buildings. Eat as you should in the South. Here you will have an excellent holiday.
