HOLIDAY FLAT WITH INDOOR POOL AND PANORAMIC VIEW OVER LAKE MAGGIORE

Locarno Apartment Rental Photos and Description

indoor pool, sauna, dishwasher, parking, balcony, lake view

This flat for 2 - 3 persons is located in the hills over the city of Locarno overlooking Lago Maggiore and the surrounding mountains. The spacious roofed balcony (about 12 m²) of the flat, which is situated on the top floor of the Condominio Collina apartment building is accessible from both the bedroom and the living room. The beautiful scenery and the morning sun invite you to a leisurely breakfast outside while the first sail boats appear on the lake. In the afternoon, you can take a sunbath on the terrace next to the indoor pool. The flat is furbished in a light and sunny style. It consists of a small hallway, living-room with a sofa bed, kitchen with an open countertop facing the living-room, open passage to the bedroom with its comfortable large twin bed and a bathroom with a shower. A lift takes you right up to the flat or to the indoor pool (10 x 4 m, free of charge) and the adjacent sauna. Parking on the premises available at no extra charge.

Scenery and sports: Locarno has a good public transport system and there is a bus stop in front of the apartment building. In addition, the famous Swiss postal buses can be used to explore the valleys formed by pristine rivers feeding into Lago Maggiore (e.g. Valle Maggia, Centovalli, Val Verzasca) where you can hike for hours or simply dream away the day under a chestnut tree in one of the many 'grotti'. Railway fans should not miss a ride on the Centovalli train to the Italian city of Domodossola through the 'hundred valleys' over dizzying viaducts. Boats take you e.g. to the Brissago Islands with their subtropical vegetation, to the famous Isola Bella or other islands in the Italian part of the lake. Lago Maggiore is ideal for sports lovers - in addition to all kinds of water sports and paragliding Locarno's small airport even has facilities for parachuting.

Leisure: The best-known cultural events are the International Film Festival in Locarno and the Jazz Festival in Ascona. But there are special festivals and events throughout the year, there is carnival in February, the camellia show in March, a number of music festivals in summer, chestnut festivals in autumn and nativity scenes in the tiny villages of the Gambarogno around Christmas. This means that even in off season there is a lot to do and see. Why not make a trip to Milan (ca. 90 minutes by car) to see the famous cathedral or do some shopping? Bargain hunters will enjoy the factory outlet centre 'Foxtown' near Chiasso where Italian designer fashion is offered at a bargain 7 days a week. Or just take a stroll through the narrow lanes of the old city centre in Locarno or Ascona.

Eating out: The Ticino region is full of contrasts, also when it comes to food. You can have a simple, hearty meal in an idyllic 'grotto' al fresco or treat yourself to some fresh fish or Italian haute cuisine in an elegant lakefront restaurant. Besides, pizza and pasta is available everywhere, so dining out with children is no problem. And in case you haven't been aware of the fact that Switzerland is 'wine country', why not try a Ticino Merlot with your meal?

Nice week in Locarno

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in Locarno was great. The condo was nice and clean and provided everything we needed for our vacation. The bathroom looks really new and having an inside swimming pool is also really nice. Locarno is in walking distance and Italy is just around the corner.
Having breakfast on the balcony and enjoying the amazing view of the lake and the mountains is something you don't want to miss! We would recommend this condo to anyone & we can't wait to return to Locarno some time soon.

Perfect location in Locarno

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely condo located in a quiet area, still closed to restaurants, shopping and many day trips location. The property was clean, the building too and we would recommend this property to anyone planning a vacation in Locarno. We liked all the restaurants we tried, but our favorite was Divino.

Nous avons passe une belle semaine dans cet appartement tres propre dans un quartier calme, mais a proximite de tout. Nous le recommandons vivement et esperons y retourner.

An excellent apartment in Locarno!

  • 5 of 5
Locarno is an excellent place to spend some days in Switzerland and perhaps for daily visits in Italy. The apartment is fully furbished and it matches exactly to the description given. It was very clean and well maintained. Its location was perfect. Beautiful views from the balcony where you can relax any time of the day. We hired a car so we didn't have any problems going down by the lake especially in the evening. Parking space near the apartment was also excellent. The owner was very helpful. Our holiday in Locarno was really nice thanks also to this apartment. We would definately go again if we have the opportunity and we reccomend it to travellers of any age even with young children as we had.

A Perfect Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
Simply put, this is a sunny & beautiful home away from home.

After a day of exploring Locarno -- or driving many of the nearby mountain passes, we would spend our evenings on the balcony enjoying the incredible scenery or eating a home made meal. We woke to the sound of church bells in the distance. We retired for the evening by watching the moon rise over the mountains.

We hope to return to Locarno many times in the future. And this flat is the only place we will stay. It was perfect in so many ways.

Winter Break

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this delightful apartment in January 2009, and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. The apartment is compact (more than two people would be a crowd!), neat, clean, tidy, and well equipped, with a magnificent view over Lake Maggiore. Cable TV with a choice of English programmes was an unexpected treat for the chilly winter evenings - not that the apartment is chilly, the central heating is extremely efficient. There's an hourly bus service right outside the door into Locarno, and a bus every fifteen minutes if you stroll about 400 metres down to the main road. We opted for walking down into Locarno and taking the bus back - it's a steep haul! There's a small selection of bars and restaurants nearby, and more than enough in Locarno itself.
The swimming pool is big enough for some daily exercise to work off the pasta!
We'd thoroughly recommend this apartment for a peaceful relaxing break to recharge the batteries, and as an excellent centre for sightseeing. Leave the car behind and take a bus ride to Ascona for a day's outing, lovely place!

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely little apartment. There is plenty of sunlight during the day and beautiful views of the lake. The apartment was also spotlessly clean and conveniently located as a base to explore the Lake Maggiore region. The apartment owner was very obliging and easy to correspond with, providing many good suggestions for exploring the region. Highly recommended!

There are a few restaurants and small shops within short walking distance from the flat. The centre of Locarno, its train station and the lakefront can be reached in ca. 10 minutes on foot (the way back uphill usually takes a bit longer). Locarno is great for shopping - either in the narrow lanes of its old town or under the arcades of Piazza Grande, where people enjoy their cappuccino outside even in the winter sun. Liners and pleasure boats depart from Locarno's pier and take you to the famous villages bordering the lake, e.g. Ascona and Stresa or to Luino and Cannobbio with their Italian open-air markets. In addition to its lido, Locarno offers a number of sports facilities and cultural sights such as the pilgrimage church Madonna del Sasso. Taking a ride in the cable car up to the Cardada/Cimetta Mountain with its magnificent panoramic views over the lake is a must and you should explore at least one of the valleys that lead straight up to the high mountains.

Other Activities: miniature golf, ice skating, parachuting, outdoor kart, paragliding, aviation

Golf: There are several golf courses in the Locarno/Ascona region, among them the well-known Golf Club Patriziale in Ascona, one of Switzerland's leading courses, and Golf Gerre Losone, site of the Ladies' Swiss Open.

Ski: The unique location of Locarno, surrounded by mountains, makes it possible to enjoy skiing and an almost Mediterranean atmosphere all in one day. There is a cable car going up to the Cardada/Cimetta Mountain (1670 m), which can be reached in about ten minutes from the apartment by either bus or car. Whenever there is enough snow, skiing up there offers fantastic views over the lake. There are other ski facilities nearby in Alpe Foppa opposite Locarno and in the village of Bosco Gurin. The skiing region of Alto Ticino on the southern slopes of the Gotthard massif, which is open all winter, can be reached in 60-90 minutes.
