Between the dreamy village of Sonogno in the furthest corner of the Valle Verzasca and the inpenetrable Valle Redorta you will find the idyllic Grotto Efra in the shadow of old sycamore trees.
According the global surveys it is the best stunt in film history: Bond's jump from the 220 meter high Verzasca dam in the movie "GoldenEye". And the ultimate adrenaline rush at Lago di Vogorno is also called 007 jump or GoldenEye Bungee Jump.
This grotto is run by the three Balemi sisters with a great deal of love and devotion. Their guests are treated to regional delicacies such as polenta cooked over an open fire, rabbit and pot roast. The seasonal specialities are particularly recommended.
The impressive vaulted cellar dating from the beginning of the last century is home to the Wine Museum. Visitors gain deep insights into the history and culture of Ticinese wine.
