About Michael Baechlin-Cunningham

My parents bought the house in 1952. We were the first 'strangers' in the village. We live in Basel, Switzerland at the moment.

Sehr schön, altes Flair, wunderbare Aussicht mit Pool.

  • 4 of 5

Die Wohnung ist sehr in die Jahre gekommen. Vieles lottert und ist heikel zu bedienen. Die Sitzgelegenheiten im Wohnzimmer sind nicht sehr komfortabel leider. Preis Leistung etwas teuer für den Zustand aber dafür mit Pool! Jedoch ist alles vorhanden. Wenn man nicht heikel ist, ist alles wunderbar :-) uns hast gefallen. Auch sehr nette Hausherrin. Danke für alles, wir würden wieder kommen.

Familienurlaub in Brissago

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung ist rustikal hat aber alles was man braucht und die Aussicht über den Lago Maggiore ist traumhaft schön.

Wir machten viele Ausflüge und Wanderungen. Auch Cannobio in Italien mit seiner Piazza ist sehenswert.

Wir kommen wieder!

ein bezauberndes Haus

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist wunderschön, sehr alt mit viel Flair und Charme. Wir hatten eine herrliche Zeit. Die Lage genial mit herrlicher Sicht, 10 km nach Italien, man ist aber auch dank neuem Tunnel schnell in den Bergen. Das Haus ist sehr geräumig und stilvoll eingerichtet, Feuerstelle im Wohnzimmer und in einem Steinhäuschen im Garten machen auch Regentage zum Genuss. Der Blick von der großen Terrasse ist traumhaft. Es war einfach perfekt und wunderschön.

Erholung mit fantastischer Aussicht

  • 5 of 5

Ein Haus mit Charakter, eine Umgebung mit reichlich Ausflugsmöglichkeiten und entspannte Tage und Abende mit umwerfender Aussicht über den Lago Maggiore. Selbst Regentage machen im gemütlich eingerichteten Haus Spass. Die Küche ist umfassend ausgestattet und selbst der Blick aus dem Badezimmer einmalig. Es waren wunderschöne Ferien! Herzlichen Dank!

You will enjoy the superb panoramic view to the lake 'Maggiore' and into the mountains in the back. In Brissago there are a few shops, where you can buy bread groceries and fish. You'll also find two pharmacies, a post office and a tourist office as well as many restaurants. Ascona, Locarno or Italy is only 15 to 20 minutes by car. There are many enjoyable trips you can undertake by boat or by car to places of interest in the Ticino and in Italy. The house is also a starting point for nice walks through the woods or into the mountains nearby (up to 2200 metres).
