Zeitgemässes Wohnen: Ökologische, moderne & extravagante Villa im Tessin am Lago Maggiore

Nachhaltig, energieeffizient, strahlungsarm und im Einklang mit der Natur, das sind die weltweiten Herausforderungen unserer Zeit. Egal, ob an Industriestandorten oder beim Bau von Wohnraum, ein ökologisches Umdenken muss einfach in allen verantwortlichen Köpfen ankommen, denn die Klimaveränderungen können nicht mehr vom Tisch gewischt werden. Des Weiteren ist der Wunsch nach verantwortungsvollem und ökologischem Wohnen stark gestiegen. Denn auch der Einfluss von giftigen Baumaterialien und Elektrosmog beeinträchtigen die Gesundheit und das Wohlbefinden. Ein gutes Beispiel möchten wir uns heute genauer ansehen. Die ökologische Villa mit eigenem Wald in Brione sopra Minusio am Lago Maggiore ist ein durch und durch ökologisches und damit nachhaltiges Einfamilienhaus. Wir fragen die Besitzer, ein deutsches Ehepaar, zu ihrer Geschichte und die Idee hier am Lago Maggiore, im Tessin eine ökologische Villa zu bauen.

La futura abitazione per la sua collezione d’arte in Ticino?

Una nuova tendenza si sta propagando in tutto il mondo, quella di collezionisti che allestiscono abitazioni stravaganti per le loro collezioni d'arte. Prendiamo l’esempio della miliardaria e collezionista polacca Grazyna Kulczyk; nella remota Susch, località montana in Svizzera, la signora Kulczyk ha acquistato un monastero medievale e, ampliandolo per mezzo di uno scavo di 9000 tonnellate di roccia sotto gli edifici esistenti, lo ha trasformato in "Muzeum Susch", uno spazio espositivo e museale unico al mondo. L'inaugurazione è avvenuta lo scorso 2 gennaio 2019.

Nature in Ticino by Pamela Pintus

The southern canton of Switzerland manages to conquer everyone with its charm and intrigue thanks to its unique and original lifestyle. The main features of Ticino are its mild climate (with over 2,160 hours of sunshine a year), the Mediterranean flair thanks to the proximity of this region to Italy, the palm trees that characterize the long lake of Locarno, the particularly pleasant valleys, the artistic and architectural beauty of churches in typical Romanesque style and the picturesque streets that end in pretty and lively squares. 

Das zukünftige Zuhause für Ihre Kunstsammlung im Tessin?

Ein neuer Trend sorgt weltweit für Schlagzeilen: Sammler schaffen extravagante Locations für ihre Kunstsammlung. Nehmen wir zum Beispiel die polnische Milliardärin Grazyna Kulczyk: Im abgelegenen Susch, ein Ort in den Bergen in der Schweiz, kaufte Frau Kulczyk ein mittelalterliches Kloster. Sie vergrösserte die Räumlichkeiten in dem sie 9.000 Tonnen Gestein unter den bestehenden Gebäude aushob und ausbaute. So ist ein einzigartiges Ausstellungszentrum, das „Muzeum Susch“ für Weltgeschichte entstanden. Eröffnung war am 2. Januar 2019.

La natura in Ticino by Pamela Pintus

Le principali caratteristiche del Ticino sono il clima mite (con le oltre 2’160 ore di sole all’anno), il flair mediterraneo grazie alla vicinanza di questa regione con l’Italia, le palme che caratterizzano il lungo lago di Locarno, le valli particolarmente ridenti, le bellezze artistiche e architettoniche di chiese in stile tipico romanico e le pittoresche vie che terminano in graziose e vivaci piazze. Tuttavia le Alpi e le sue maestose vette non sono mai lontane, rendendo questa splendida regione un posto particolare e di incantevole bellezza. 

The Daily Telegraph: Make the most of an Alpine autumn

Between the summer sun and winter sports, these Swiss resorts show off their multi-coloured beauty, says Zoe Dare Hall. Swiss resorts, like all Alpine destinations, are increasingly talked about these days in terms of their dual-season appeal. It's part of the push to get visitors and property buyers to see them as a summer destination as much as a place that's about hurtling down snowy slopes in winter. But the real star of the show is autumn. The vast, multi-colored land-scapes - and lack of crowds - make this the most Instagrammable of seasons, yet it's still something of a secret. Think deep, glassy blue lakes and flame colored trees, hazy sunlight that bathes the valley floor and white-capped mountains beyond hills of brilliant the green.

Culinary Tours of Lake Lugano's Grottos

Many of the atmospheric grottos lining the shore of Lake Lugano can only be reached on foot or by water. In recent years, an evening boat tour of the grotto has become popular. After enjoying a typical repast of brasato or polenta by candlelight in a restaurant of their choice, passengers go back on the boat’s return trip two hours later.

Markets on Lake Maggiore

The weekly markets held in the lakeside villages on the Italian shore of Lake Maggiore are easily accessible by boat from either Locarno or Ascona: in Luino on Wednesdays, in Verbania-Intra on Saturdays and in Cannobio on Sundays. Particularly the market in Lunio has drawn, for years, hordes of tourists and bargain hunters from as far away as the northern region of the Alps, Bavaria and Austria. In addition to making great purchases and discovering these charming villages, visitors can further enhance their trip by taking a relaxing cruise on Lake Maggiore, described by Stendhal as "one of the most beautiful places in the world."
