The cute Hotel Garni Casa Ambica is located in the old picturesque center of Gordevio in the Maggia Valley and 10 minutes away from Locarno and Ascona. The historical patrician house has been built towards the end of the 19th century and since been carefully renovated by Silivia Beerli to maintain its original character.
Casa Ambica is situated in calm and sunny surroundings and captivates through its unique grace and delightful ambiance. The romantic garden with granite tables and deck chairs is an oasis of peace and recreation, where you can embrace the sun or relax in the shadow under the ancient wisterias while listening to the irregular splashes of the fountain.
The house has four double rooms, a small suite and a romantic attic room. Most rooms face south and have access to the terrace with a wonderful view of the valley and the old stone roofs of the Ticino houses. All rooms are smoke free.
Silvia Beerli is kindly welcoming you in her small, personally managed house.
Finding a name for my house wasn’t easy. The name should be simple but not trivial and it should fit my person as well as the house. On a travel through Tibet and Nepal I stayed in a wonderful Hotel whose owner was called Ambica, a female Indian name meaning mother and bearer of harmony, well being and protection. The name for my house was found.
