  • All about the Chestnut

    Relish chestnuts - with all your senses - at Arosio in Malcantone. Malcantone lies between tall panoramic peaks such as Monte Lema and two inlets of Lake Lugano. The Tresa River, which flows from Lake Lugano at Ponte Tresa, and the mountains form the national border with Italy. Most of the 26 small communities of Malcantone are situated on the hills between the river Tresa and the mountains. The forest, which is composed mostly of chestnut trees, stretches from village to picturesque village. The churches in these villages are well worth visiting. Little arable land remains, since farming is difficult in this region, and thus nature in the form of the forest has reclaimed large areas.
