Stream & waterfall

Here you can refresh yourself in the fresh stream water and walk all the way back to the waterfall. The stream is public and belongs to the municipality. The brook flows through our land. Unfortunately, much of nature was destroyed by the storm and floods in 2020, as well as all the water basins filled up with debris. The municipality of Gudo decided not to restore it. There has never been such a disaster before. We hope that we will be able to restore a large part of the natural basins by our own efforts, but this will take time. Thank you for your understanding.

Dear guests. When you leave the property, please close the large wooden garden fence to the cable car, the property is private, strangers have no access. Thank you for your cooperation.

Scorpions

We also have scorpions in Ticino. Caution!! Never walk barefoot through nature or walk with your hands in bushes or meadows.

There are about 1,500 different scorpions worldwide. Three of them can also be found in Switzerland. Find out here where they live and how poisonous our local scorpions are.

Are scorpions poisonous in Switzerland?

All scorpions carry a poison that serves to stun their victims. Of the known scorpion species, only about two dozen are said to be poisonous enough to be dangerous to humans. Fortunately, scorpions in Switzerland are not among them. The venom is said to be as painful as a bee or wasp sting. However, it can be dangerous for allergy sufferers.
