Your visit

You enter a house whose angles and narrow staircases lead to many a spacious room.
A house left in its dimensions, cleverly designed when space becomes tight. In our house you will experience this much desired palm-by-the-water view and sunsets in grandiose variations.


On request we serve from 7.30 to
10.00 a small breakfast for CHF 18.
Each apartment is equipped with a kitchenette and a coffee machine (capsules). Nothing stands in the way of your own preparation.


Anita Koba and Heinz Berger acquired the former “Hotel Panorama” in Gerra. Subtly, they renewed parts of the house under the direction of Heinz Berger. Anita Koba, interior designer and florist, was particularly invested in the redesign of the rooms and public areas.

Lake and more

One of the most beautiful beaches here on the eastern shore is located directly under the hotel. Of course, in the various towns of Gambarogno, here in Gerra or in Vira and Magadino, there are official beach resorts with the necessary facilities: for children, the enjoyment, comfortable lounging, hygiene, etc..


Just above the hotel is a panoramic path with incredible views of the lake region. This leads without much effort over the shore places. Tip: Take the public bus to Vira and hike back along the panoramic path. Or vice versa. But if you like the effort, climb the steep slopes towards Monte Gerra right away.


There are charming villages strung along 10 km of the eastern shore. It is also worth crossing the border into Italy (Pino, Maccagno, Luino). The botanical garden in Vira enchants especially in spring with the impressive camellias, the natural jewel Bolla di Magadino can be hiked wonderfully, and all this in the bus cycle at the half or full hour.

The hosts – Ottimo
