The marble of Peccia

The Valle Maggia is one of the most beautiful, largest, varied and most visited valleys of the Ticino. It is regarded as an important holiday area as well as a nature reserve. Visitors and also the local inhabitants find the region "wildly romantic". Surrounded by majestic, awe inspiring and valley dividing granite and gneiss formations which have towered up during the alpine unfolding in ages past, we find, almost like a miracle or a geological surprise, the occurrence of marble in Peccia.

Pizzo Castello


If you wish to lodge with other course participants you are welcome to rent a room in one of our two local Ticino houses. The original furnishings have charm and the ambience next to the open fireplace is very cosy!

We can offer other lodging facilities if you prefer to be more independent:

You can book one of our studio flats on the worksite, choose B+B in one of the local hotels or rent a Rustico/Cottage in the locality.
