Who we are & Where we are

Tenuta Casa Cima belongs to the Fondazione (Foundation) Kaspar e Sophie Spörri. We offer one typical Ticino-style stone house (Rustico) in the small village of Gudo. Gudo is a former municipality in the district of Bellinzona in the canton of Ticino in Switzerland. It is located almost in the center part of Bellinzona and  Locarno.

Ascona and Lugano can also be reached in a few minutes from this place. Visit the famous Verzasca Dam in only 16 minutes from us. The 220 m high dam wall of the Verzasca Valley is not only famous because it is one of the highest dam walls in Europe, but also because it filmed in the background for the opening scene of the James Bond film named GoldenEye with Pierce Brosnan.

Tenuta Casa Cima is the name of the winery. Our estate and vineyards are located on a rocky promontory 100 meters above the village.

The 80,000 m² estate is surrounded by vineyards, gardens, pergolas, and woods, and can be reached in about 10 to 15 minutes on foot from our parking areas at the cable car valley station or from our parking spaces to the west of the vineyard. In consultation with the staff, the cable car is also available to our guests for transporting materials and passengers

Call us on arrival at the cable car valley station so that we can arrange the appropriate procedure for your arrival at Tenuta Casa Cima. You will receive the number before check-in.

Thanks to the micro-climate here, palm trees, kiwis, lemons and many other plants and fruits grow here that would never grow in the north. We leased our vineyards to Cantine Stucky Hügin. One of the best red wines from the region comes from our grapes.“Tracce di Sassi”

Our holiday home: Deluxe Bellavista. The Tenuta Casa Cima also includes our main house from the foundation with a beautiful garden. 

For the last 300 years, families and long-distance travelers have visited and admired the surroundings, the garden with exotic plants, and the panorama of Lago Maggiore with the Brissago Islands, Bellinzona, St. Antonino, and Monte Ceneri. If you are looking for peace and relaxation, this is the place for you—far away from noise and stress.

The typical rustic architecture, the extraordinary interior of the houses and the unique atmosphere have always enchanted our guests during their holidays. Are you looking for a cool down?  Little more of water refreshments with Mother Nature? No problem! A cool dip in our stream with waterfall or in our pool is truly breath-taking. This combination of enchanting natural beauty with the endless sunny weather will make you want to come back here anytime…!

We look forward to see you!

If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.
