A family vacation, relaxing while your children play, explore and discover a new world in complete safety. A game of cards, some stand up paddling or an evening on the beach will all make your stay unique and your children's enthusiasm will rekindle memories of your childhood.

“Quick! There's the lake! We must take a dip, pitch the tent, do some stand up paddling, play with the sand, strum the guitar,...” Your children are very happy. It's been a long time since you saw them so excited to discover new places and activities. It was a really good idea to come camping in Ticino... But will you have enough time to do everything?

You are all ready: you have a beach towel in your bag, the children have put on their sun protection and swimming costumes and, just down the road, beyond the caravans, tents and campers, you can see the lake. How beautiful! Perhaps you remember your first vacation in Ticino: you were still very small, younger than your own children are now, but you have never forgotten that vacation.

Your daughter walks fearlessly towards the water brandishing an oar: she wants to conquer the lake on her stand up paddleboard. At first, your children need help and their first steps in the water are a bit clumsy, but they are soon on board, like true “Captains Courageous”! Brave? Very brave! You almost don't recognise your daughter when she jumps out of the boat braving the waves and the chilly lake.

Family holiday

While mum and dad relax enjoying the sun on the beach, the children play in the water. The ducklings that swim quietly on the gentle waves and sometimes waddle around on the shore create a sense of peace and you feel immersed in nature. “Come on Daddy, we're going to bury you in the sand!” That's it. The peace is over!

“Calm down children. You have to dry off and be a little quieter.” You play cards and try to strum a tune on a guitar, but it's easier said than done. The day has been a great success, but the adventure is not over, as you still have to face your night in a tent!
