Oberhalb der Tessiner Gemeinde Intragna liegt mit dem Tessinerhaus Portapila eine Unterkunft, die einen herrlichen Blick über die Berge des Tessins und in Richtung Locarno und Lago Maggiore bietet. In den beiden gemütlichen Ferienwohnungen Arcata und Attica haben bis zu fünf beziehungsweise bis zu drei Gäste Platz. Das Tessin ist als wahres Wanderparadies bekannt und unmittelbar vor dem Haus beginnt ein riesiges Wandernetzwerk, welches die Gäste dazu einlädt, die schöne Landschaft und die Natur des Tessin auf aktive Weise zu genießen. Aber nicht nur für den Wanderurlaub oder allgemein den Aktivurlaub ist das Tessin eine gute Adresse. Auch für den Familienurlaub mit Kindern eignet sich die Region und auch das familienfreundliche Tessinerhaus Portapila bietet in seinen beiden Ferienwohnungen sehr gute Voraussetzungen, sodass hier auch ein kompletter Generationen-Urlaub mit den Großeltern ohne Probleme möglich ist.
