About the property

Relax, swim, enjoy in a very nice apartment on Lake Maggiore

The 3 bedroom apartment is located in a beautiful and renovated complex on Lake Maggiore i.e. with direct private access to the lake. The apartment has been recently renovated and almost all the furniture is new and it has been furnished with great care and attention to detail. The entrance to this apartment is located at the entrance to the complex and so offers great comfort level for shopping or for a walk. It is suitable for 4 persons, or utmost two adults with up to three children. Since the kitchen is new and well equipped you can cook quickly. Everything that you need is available In the kitchen, such as sugar, flour, oil, vinegar and many spices. In addition, it has a stereo equipment and a new 55' LED TV along with a sofa (sofa bed 140cm x 200cm) and two armchairs in the living room, which has a Ticinese panoramic window. The bedroom is equipped with a new box spring double bed and a 32' LED TV as you can still comfortably enjoy a movie in the bed or watch the latest news after a long day in the evening. The bathroom is large has a bath, a shower, a washbasin, a toilet and a bidet. The price of course includes the bedding and also hand/ bath towels. You only have to travel with minimal luggage because it also has beach towels for outdoor use. Vira is a very nice Ticino village without too many tourists with the real Ticinese charm with narrow streets and a beautiful beach promenade (not mundane so idyllic and very relaxing). From Vira, one can go on very nice short and longer hikes or take a boat to Locarno or Ascona and the Brissago Island. It is also quite possible to ride to Italy to Luino, Canobbio or on the Borromean Islands by boat. In addition, it has very many objects of interest especially in the surrounding and in the towns of Locarno, Lugano, Bellinzona and Ascona and you can be in Milan rather quickly by car to see its many interesting buildings, the cathedral, theatres and several museums. A holiday with Vira as the base is ideal for exploring Ticino or just to enjoy the private and direct access to the lake fulfills all the desires with regard to recovery and relaxation.

Why Urs Grütter chose Vira (Gambarogno)

I am now retired and was looking for a nice quiet place to be able to withdraw myself back and relax and found it in the Residenza ViraLago.

What makes this condo unique

Residenza ViraLago is located very beautifully and especially, directly on Lake Maggiore with a beautiful view of Lake Maggiore. Vira is a small, typical Ticino village with the appropriate private and pristine atmosphere. Ideal are the extremely short distance to shopping, bus stop, pharmacy, to the tourist information, a butcher with daily fresh fish from the lake, to the post office and restaurants. The infrastructure of ViraLago is very good and is in an excellent condition, i.e. with a laundry room (washer and dryer), gym with television, sauna and cold plunge pool and lounge room, indoor pool with massage jets, three lawns (one in front of the indoor pool, another one below with pergola and tables for dining or for enjoying a glass of wine, and a third one towards the private beach with a variety of boats and equipment.

Great convenient place!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment has everything you could need. It was very clean and was so convenient with parking right out front and the access on the ground floor. Bed was very comfortable and the apartment was very child friendly with our 2 little ones. We will definitely stay again!

Exzellente Wohnung mit allem drum und dran

  • 5 of 5

Sehr angenehme und schön eingerichtete Wohnung, welche allen Komfort bietet. Keine Notwendigkeit Kleinigkeiten, wie Salz oder Öl mitzunehmen, da der Vermieter dies bereits anbietet. Während unserem Aufenthalt könnten wir das grosszügig dimensionierte Schwimmbad, wie aber auch gegen Gebühr das Boot für einen halben Tag gemietet. Der Preis für die Bootsmiete war sehr fair berechnet und man hat uns sogar zwei Decken, wie auch Getränke, wie auch Brot für das verfüttern an Enten mitgegeben.

Insgesamt ein sehr gutes Angebot, dass ich sehr gerne weiter empfehlen Kann, insbesondere auch wegen der Herzlichkeit des Vermieterpaares.

Wunderschön am See gelegen - toll ausgestattete FeWo - sehr lieber Vermieter

  • 5 of 5

wir haben wunderschöne Tage in einer super ausgestatteten und sehr sauberen Anlage und Wohnung verbracht. Herr Grütter hat diese Wohnung sehr liebevoll ausgestattet und genauso gut haben wir uns von ihm betreut gefühlt. Das nötigste kann man direkt gegenüber in einem kleinen Laden kaufen - ist allerdings sehr teuer (Tessin halt). Tipp: 10 km weiter kann man sich jedoch viel günstiger in Italien eindecken. Wir kommen sehr gern wieder und danken für einen wunderschönen Urlaub! Fam Schubotz

erholsamer Aufenthalt

  • 4 of 5

Schlüsselüber- bezw. Rückgabe war problemlos. Den direkten Seezugang mit privatem Strand haben wir sehr geschätzt. Die Anlage ist sehr gepflegt. Die Küchenausstattung ist für Selbstversorger sehr gut. Gewürze, Kaffee, Abwaschmittel etc. war alles vorhanden. Freundlicher Vermieter.
