HISTORY AND TRADICTION
It the beginning was a small dream house, initially called "White House" and then "Mimosa House Lovers of Nature", when in 1978 Felix Dorothée Krähenmann transformed it into the bed and breakfast “La Rocca”. A romantic garden was surrounding the house and here and there some balcony, the rooms were only equipped with sinks because there was only a shower and toilet in common. In a simple and functional kitchen, the staff ate their meals and into another corner was placed a small office. Felix cooked nearly 10 years for his guests, a good home cooking which soon became very popular. This old building, dated 1926, thanks to wonderful and professional ideas has grown on all aspects over the years. Dorothée and Felix worked during the years bringing constantly renovations to the building, which became a real jewel.
Thanks to special and loyal guests and sacrifice , it was possible to carry out this project achieving the 4 star, with an elegant atmosphere in Ticino; also attested in 1994 by the association of Swiss hoteliers . For the joy Krähenmann’s family, in 2012 , the youngest son of the family took over the hotel with even more idealism . The new renovations have already begun , and the Boutique - Hotel La Rocca positively looks to the future
