About Us

Ca Merlo is a lovely accomodation not far from the fascinated Basilica of Tirano and the Railway station of the famous Bernina express.
Ca Merlo has 2 apartments (CA MERLO RED  and CA MERLO BLUE) located on the ground floor of a big stone house and a bed & breakfast (CA MERLO DELUXE) in the first floor, both have an independent entrance and an outdoor car parking.
The house is surrounded by a large garden where it’s possible to have breakfast in summer, the hedge makes the garden quiet and private.
A wonderful cherry tree will provide you with an afternoon snack in May, and flowers and plants, my mother’s hobby, will make your staying more pleasant.
On sunny days in Summer you can sunbathe in the “solarium” where you can find some sunbeds, a big umbrella and a lawn swing.
You will relax for sure!
You won’t miss the company of many animals: fishes and turtels  in the pond, Zagor e Zoe, the two house dogs.
Cà Merlo is the ideal place for those who love animals and would like to take their dog with them on holiday.

Bernina Express
trenino-featured
During your holiday in Valtellina you can not miss an enchanting journey on the Bernina Express, the famous red train of Bernina that starts in Tirano ,and connects the Valtellina to Saint Moritz through the Valley of Poschiavo and the Bernina Pass (2253 msl) following a path that is considered one of the most interesting heritage in the world because of its beauty and the boldness of the track.
In two and a half hour the train combines the cool beauty of the mountai with the warm charm of italy, mixing truly impressive natural landscapes with the rich millenial cultural history of the Grisons/Graubunden region. It is a journey that I suggest during every season: the viaduct of Brusio, the Lake of Poschiavo, Alp Grum, the imposing Morteratsch glacier and the Bernina summit,and then the eternal pearl Engadine, St. Moritz.
The Running along 122 km of track, passing through 55 tunnels and over 196 bridges and viaducts, the line followed by the Bernina Express is a mastrepiece of engineering skills.
Its combination with the surrounding landscape is what constitutes its recognition as a UNESCO World Heritage. www.rhb.it
