There was no noise and beautiful views from some windows.We did not have a car but it was very easy to take the bus to Bellinzona, about 15-20 minutes. From Bellinzona we took the train to Lake Como, Locarno and Lugarno. We walked to Guibiasco about 10 minutes .where we could take a bus to Sant Antonio. There is also a taxi service. Camorino is a beautiful little village, the whole area certainly lives up to its name "Bellinzona".Coming from Australia to research my family history I thoroughly enjoyed staying in an apartment that was so much more than a holiday let. It was obviously somebody''s loved and cared for home. I am planning to come again in 2014."
