Further information

Lake Maggiore:

The second largest lake in Südalpenraum is a dream destination of sun-seeking Western Europeans and a jewel of tourism. Protected by the mighty snow-capped Alps has an almost subtropical microclimate emerged around the big deep blue water surface: flowers flowers, palm trees, olive trees, oleanders and holm oaks dominate the magnificent landscape. This mix of northern and southern European influences - it can be found ostentatious palaces alongside picturesque fishermen's houses, precious restaurants next Rustic stone, dazzling and exotic botanical gardens next small vegetable gardens, or upscale boutiques next Tröbelläden or tradional markets.

A top-class attraction are the Borromean Islands (Isola Bella, Isola Madre and Isola dei Pescatori). Isola Bella, the baroque, exuberant palace and garden island is one of the most famous sights of Italy.

It is a well-frequented daily boat service is available between all coastal villages (recommended is a boat trip to the picturesque towns of Cannobio and Cannero Riviera or to the Borromean Islands).

The western shore shines with its palaces, art nouveau villas and magnificent parks, the east bank attracts with its many small natural wonders, the magnificent view of the massif of Monte Rosa, the reed, meadow and forest-fringed beaches and lonely and bizarre valleys in the hinterland.

In the Swiss part of the lake with the fashionable town of Locarno and Ascona, which lists the most hours of sunshine "sunshine capital of Switzerland" for the rest, you sip your morning coffee already in the sun when it is further north still heated in the Alps.

The wild valleys and mountain streams, which can be reached by the Ticino North Shore good, impress with great natural spectacles. The Cento Valli with his "hundred valleys", which has eaten into the mountain the Melezza, offers a very special time entertainment: a ride on the Centovallina through the main valley. The Schmalspurbähnchen runs from Locarno Centovalli high over viaducts and through tunnels and makes the hearts of travelers higher. The Maggia Valley is especially popular in the lower part, as the Maggia forms there great swimming pool. The Verzasca is wilder than neighboring Maggia. On the way to the Verzasca valley leads to the huge dam of Lago di Vorgona that served as a backdrop, a James Bond film. Here bungee jumping is offered at regular intervals. The majority of visitors come but for a different reason: Above the village Lavertezzo, where an elegant double-arched bridge from the 17th century. Century the Verzacsa spans are fantastic bathing opportunities arise. The rock gives the water an iridescent green and long, abraded rock benches invite you to sunbathe.

In contrast to the lush West can be found on the eastern shore quiet and natural shorelines with many small and large beaches; inviting swim can be found in particular Castelveccana. The area offers attractive destinations and is ideal for walkers and cyclists and mountain bikers.

Vira performs a winding road through the wild, dense and species-rich wooded valley of Giona in the mountain village Indeminni. The built from local, gray gneiss houses with stone roofs and wooden gazebos characterize the uniform townscape, considered with its maze of lanes and the high stone houses as one of the most pristine mountain villages of Ticino. The largest city on the Lombardy side Luino, which can be reached from the house in 15 minutes by car. Well known is the centuries-old Wednesday market, which was already initiated under Emperor Charles V and one of the largest markets in northern Italy is.

The town of Laveno is located about 5 km south of the house. Laveno has the most important port on the east bank. From here there is a ferry connection to the opposite bank (Intra). The over 1000 m high mountain Laveno rises immediately behind the town center up. The wonderful trip with the original open cable car gondola up to just below the top of Mount Sasso is recommended. You have a breathtaking view far over Lake Maggiore, its surroundings and the Alps here. For a climb to the summit you have about 30 minutes to plan. Located next to the mountain station is occupies one starting point for hang gliding and paragliding. Another highlight around Laveno are the Cittiglio waterfall.

Something sinful Laveno is one of the most popular attractions in Lake Maggiore - the Hermitage of Santa Caterina del Sasso. A back-reaching in its origins to the Middle Ages church nestles just a few feet above the water on the steep bank of the rock wall. From here we caught one of the most beautiful views of Lake Maggiore.

Große Terrasse mit traumhaftem Seeblick

  • 4 of 5

Die Lage der Wohnung und die wunderbare Aussicht auf den Lago Maggiore sind wirklich ein besonderer Urlaubsgenuss. Unsere ursprüngliche Befürchtung, dass man viel Verkehrslärm von der SP 69 hören könnte, die am See entlang führt, hat sich nicht bestätigt. Es war sehr ruhig. Die Ausstattung der Wohnung ist prima und die Vermieter sind sehr nett. Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Aufgrund der Nähe zur einzigen Autofähre am Lago Maggiore kann man zahlreiche Ausflüge unternehmen und ist auch schnell auf der anderen Seeseite.

Die Wohnung liegt in einer kleinen (deutschen) Siedlung etwas abseits des Ortes am Hang mit direktem Blick zum See runter. Auto erforderlich. Gute Ausstattung und Geschirr ausreichend.

Die Aussicht ist wirklich unglaublich...

  • 5 of 5

Ich war im Mai 2017 gemeinsam mit drei Freunden in der Ferienwohnung und habe dort ein langes Wochenende verbracht.

Die Wohnung ist modern und hochwertig eingerichtet. Nachfolgend eine kurze Bewertung der einzelnen Bereiche:


Die Matratzen sind super (was für mich als „Rückengeschädigter“ sehr wichtig ist). In beiden Schlafzimmern ist genügend Stauraum in den großen Schränken vorhanden.


In der Küche fehlt es an nichts. Neben einer Spülmaschine ist sogar ein Kaffee-Vollautomat vorhanden. Gekocht wird mit Gas, was mir persönlich gut gefällt.


Hier steht eine sehr gemütliche Couch mit einem großen Flachbildfernseher (Astra-Empfang). Nettes Detail: Am TV-Gerät ist ein langes HDMI-Kabel vorhanden. So kann bspw. ein mitgebrachtes Notebook angeschlossen werden.


Es gibt in der Wohnung ein schnelles und stabiles Wlan. Wie ich im Vorfeld gemerkt habe ist dies in der Region noch nicht Standard.


Sieht sehr schön aus. Interessanter Tisch. Mehr kann ich nicht sagen. Wir sind immer auf der Terrasse gesessen.


Sehr modern eingerichtet. Die Dusche ist sehr groß. Ausreichend Stauraum und ein Heizkörper als Handtuchtrockner ist vorhanden.


Wie alles andere sehr neu und modern.


Für mich das Highlight der Wohnung: Der Blick auf den See. Egal zu welcher Tageszeit atemberaubend schön. Wir haben hier unzählige Stunden verbracht.

Abschließend möchte ich natürlich noch eine Gesamtwertung abgeben. Ich werde definitiv wiederkommen und kann die Wohnung absolut weiterempfehlen. Auf diesem Wege auch nochmals vielen Dank an die Besitzer für den sehr netten Kontakt und das tolle Wochenende in ihrer Wohnung.

Erholsame Urlaubstage

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns im Haus sehr wohl gefühlt, die Ausstattung war genauso wie beschrieben, neu renoviert und sauber, geschmackvolle Einrichtung bei der es an nichts fehlte. Große Terasse mit einem tollen Blick auf den See. Vermieter war jederzeit erreichbar und hilfsbereit. Die Tipps für Ausflüge und sonstiges waren sehr hilfreich, wir empfehlen gerne weiter.
