The hut lies at an altitude of 2140 meters, on a terrace named Poggio del Giübin that dominates the upper Piumogna valley. Belonging to the SAC Section Ticino, the Campo-Tencia hut is the first mountain hut in the Ticino Alps. It was constructed way back in 1912 at the foot of the summit bearing the same name. The Campo Tencia hut is renowned for its excellent cuisine and large choice of both hot and cold Ticino-style specialities served throughout the day in amicable ambiance.
Allow yourself to experience the time of Diogenes and spend one night in a 15’000-liter-barrel (from May to October). Each barrel sleeps six persons and is equipped with beds, mattresses, and wooden blankets (24 beds in total).
In this small hotel you may find peace and relax in rooms flooded with light. But there is much more to appreciate: pure nature, views of the lake and the Alps, outstanding beds, regional treats, durable development, an authentic setting, and warm atmosphere.
Each room or bungalow has at least one sun window or else a magnificent lake view. Don’t look for fast food in this place, for the health resort proposes a savory, natural cuisine instead.
