Christmas and New Year in Corippo!


Désirée and Jeremy love their jobs and are proud to bring to life this project which suits them in many ways. Hotel school for one and Michelin- starred kitchens for the other, the Franco-Swiss couple  has worked in Switzerland, Europe and South Americ, and has been living in Ticino for the last several years. From the piazza, the kitchen stoves, the osteria, the terrace, the alleys or the green spaces, they look forward to meeting you and making sure you have a  pleasant stay.

Site and Hotel Concept

In the heart of the Verzasca Valley, the hotel "Albergo Diffuso" in Corippo invites you to discover the timeless and picturesque charm of the smallest village in Switzerland. The ancestral Ticino heritage and the minimalist architecture are combined with modern comforts to offer you the opportunity to live and take part in an authentic experience  surrounded by simple pleasures: nature, peace, good products and the essentials. 
This innovative project is the result of the Fondazione Corippo 1975. For further information, please contact us: 


Perched on the right bank of the Verzasca , Corippo is an ideal starting point for the many outdoor and cultural activities in the valley. The surrounding mountains and forests have retained their unspoiled beauty and are ideal for hiking, mountain biking and romantic picnics. The valley owes its authentic charm to the Verzasca River, whose emerald waters are breathtakingly pure. The river is perfect for swimming, canyoning, kayaking and even scuba diving. Corippo is located 30 minutes from Locarno and 3 hours from Zurich.
