Solid hospitality products

We are pleased to offer you solid soaps and shampoos made in Ticino. No plastic, less water and a long life for a remarkable quality. Pieces of Corippo that you can keep enjoying when you get home!

Responsible cooking

The chef's job can be summed up as "transforming what nature offers into a tasty dish". Everything starts from there: an evolving menu offering the best of local and seasonal products; an intelligent use of the whole product; and a sparing use of meat in such a way as to honour the whole carcass. The aim is always to please and to give priority to human contact.

Corippo, Water

The valley owes its authentic charm to the Verzasca River, whose emerald waters are breathtakingly pure. The river is perfect for swimming, canyoning, kayaking and even scuba diving.
