Figino Youth Hostel
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.
Italianità and Qualità.
A forest, a bowls alley, two nature areas and a great surrounding. 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. Incidentally, the youth hostel is large enough and split in such a way that families can have some peace.
