You are cordially invited to a traditional chestnut party in our natural paradise!
Monte Brè s/ Locarno was still a pasture less than 100 years ago. Today it is a mountain district that has acquired the reputation of an "irreducible village" in Ticino after its inhabitants launched a popular initiative to save their natural paradise from a destructive speculative project.
Its splendor is perhaps comparable to that of Lavaux, if you replace Lake Geneva with Maggiore, and vineyards with chestnut trees.
Monte Brè and the neighboring village of San Bernardo are nestled on a high plateau above the Locarno-Ascona peninsula, in the middle of nature. It also offers a magnificent view of Locarno and its surroundings, as well as the contemplation of one of the most beautiful and characteristic landscapes in Switzerland.
