We love the Hotel and Spa Internazionale because it's steps away from Bellinzona's station (just 1 hour 40 minutes from Zurich), and yet is also at the gateway to Bellinzona's historic old town. The famous market begins at our doorstep. Twin rooms available upon request, and all rooms are ensuite. Use of the spa is free to participants.


Each day, Diccon Bewes will lead two seminars designed to help you understand this unique country better. By the end of the weekend you'll have dived into Switzerland's history and political system, and had a taster of Swiss food and culture.


The curated program gives you a hands-on immersion in Swiss and Ticino culture. We'll visit Bellinzona's legendary Saturday morning market, learn to cook risotto, and visit the historic hill town of Curzutt, where we'll walk to the Tibetan Bridge.  



Breakfast is served of the Internazionale in the dining room, or in the sunlit winter garden. For the other meals we'll visit some of Bellinzona's restaurants where you'll be able to choose from a range of options, including vegetarian or vegan if you let in advance. We can also accommodate participants with allergies.

Time for yourself
and time for others

Whether you're coming on the retreat to recharge, or want to spend time with friends, or want to meet others who have recently moved to Switzerland, our retreats offer the time and space to relax, to chat, to play and to have fun. No part of our program is mandatory. Come immerse with us – you deserve it.
