The 'Yachting Residence' is located directly on the sun-drenched lake-front of Lago Maggiore. This residence is unique, because of its direct access to the lake and its exceptional architecture. The town of Ghiffa can easily be reached along the lake-side promenade. The building has been completely renovated and authentically extended. During the careful restoration of the heritageprotected building, the original structure of the old facades was retained. The result: a stylish house with every modern convenience, but still exuding its original charm. This is an ideal holiday residence, not only for water-sports enthusiasts. The unusually high ceilings in parts of the residence, in combination with arched windows and loggias which face the lake, lend these appartments their own particular character and charm. The outdoor area is also unique: the residence has a 250 m long garden, which is used as a private beach and a large sun-bathing lawn with barbecue area. In the evening, the entire complex is beautifully illuminated. A washingmachine and clothes-dryer are available. Coins needed for the use of these machines may be obtained from the concierge. Every appartment has SAT-TV and a parking space in the garage. The floors are of Carrara marble or white tiles.
Wir waren an Ostern als Familie mit zwei Kindern die ersten Gäste nach ca. 6-monatiger Winterpause. Der in Sommermonaten sicher sehr angenehme Marmorboden ist dank Erdgeschoss mit darunterliegender Tiefgarage sicher angenehm im April leider nur kalt. Die Wohnung hätte einige Tage zuvor geheizt werden sollen, die elektrischen Heizlüfter haben da in einer Woche nicht sehr viel geholfen.
Küchenschränke waren nicht sauber gemacht, Toilettenpapier hat gefehlt, Tassen leider viel zu wenig, Terasse nicht vorbereitet.
Schade, dass dann der Ansprechpartner fernab in Deutschland sitzt und auch nur zu Arbeitszeiten und eben nicht am Karsamstag, Ostersonntag oder Ostermontag helfen kann. Schade!!! Für erkältete Kinder, Blasenentzündung definitiv zu teuer.
