Directly south of the Alps and blessed with a Mediterranean climate lies the Ticino and the magnificent Lago Maggiore.
The so-called Schweizer Sonnenstube is a year-round dream destination for peace seekers and connoisseurs, but also for athletes and explorers.
Here you will find your high-quality, cozy and large holiday home with fantastic lake and mountain views from all rooms and from the two spacious terraces. The beautiful and detached house stands on a more than 800 square meter hillside plot and has a total of two apartments: Your large apartment on the ground floor and a smaller and only temporarily occupied by the owners apartment with private entrance upstairs. So you reside here completely free and individually, without the inconvenience of crowded, narrow apartment complexes. The property is located on a private road that can only be used by a few residents on the scenic and atmospherically attractive seafront in Magadino / Vira. The village is located in the upper part of the almost seventy-kilometer-long lake and is therefore particularly easy to reach from the north. Directly opposite are the towns of Locarno and Ascona, which can be reached quickly by boat or car. The lake, the free and very well-kept local beach with large lawns, water sports center (wakeboard, SUP, etc.) and beach bar are within walking distance in a few minutes. As well as various restaurants and small grocery stores.
On the two sun terraces are four sun loungers, a comfortable outdoor sofa, two armchairs and a typical granite table with benches for relaxing and comfortable get-together. Both terraces are surrounded by lush greenery and palm trees of your own garden and offer breathtaking views of the lake, the valleys and mountains. On the barbecue you can prepare dinner at the sight of perhaps the most beautiful sunset on Lake Maggiore.
From the upper terrace you enter directly the living room. From the cozy sofas or the stylish dining area you can enjoy the magnificent view of the lake through the large picture windows or you can sit in front of the roaring log fire in autumn and winter. Unobtrusively hides in an antique sideboard a large LED TV (50 inches) with satellite channels, a stereo, a Sony Playstation and a DVD player. In addition, music from mobile devices can be played via Bluetooth via a HarmanKardon music box. There is also a varied selection of DVDs and PS games available. Furthermore, various board games and novels are available.
The kitchen is equipped with sufficient cutlery, crockery, pots and pans, a coffee machine, a modern stove with 4 hotplates, oven, microwave, a large refrigerator and kitchen cabinets for storing food.
The two bedrooms are individually and comfortably furnished. The "blue" room has a double bed and a large mirrored wardrobe. The slightly smaller "pink" room has a separable double bed and an antique wooden wardrobe. The double bed in the "pink" room can be pushed apart, so that if necessary two single beds are created. Both bedrooms have shutters, so they can be completely darkened for late risers.
The bathroom and sanitary area is distributed over two rooms. In one room is a toilet, a bidet and a sink with mirror cabinet. In another large bathroom area is the shower, a XXL bath (up to 4 persons) and the Finnish sauna, which offers relaxation in autumn and winter after hiking or skiing.
In a separate room is a washing machine and a tumble dryer.
The entrance to the garage serves as a car parking space. In the photo gallery you will also find a floor plan of the apartment.
We are happy to provide bed linen, towels and Wi-Fi for a small fee.
In addition to the relaxing hours in and around the house, the recreational and operating possibilities around your holiday home are almost inexhaustible:
- Bathing and relaxing in the countless beach baths
- Excursion to the beautiful rivers in the Maggia or Verzasca Valley

The Italian border is only a few kilometers away ...
