nice view BUT...

  • 3 of 5

The villa had as described a lovely view from both balconies.

However, its a shame that it is let down..

The air conditioning that is claimed to be there, is actually a stand alone unit obviously this one unit will not cover 3 bedrooms and downstairs.

The outdoor pool is actually a hot tub with a puncture which we had to pump up daily.

On arrival the hot tub was dirty and the water hadn't been changed from the previous guests. It also kept breaking down and beeping at us.. we watched the owner unplug and reset so continued doing this during our stay...not ideal as the tub loses temperature each time.

The dvd player was missing, so we had to ask for one.this was provided.

The outside light was not working so we had to move a lamp outside each night to see.

There was no local information book available just a few leaflets that were not up to date and not in english..we went to the tourist info to rectify this.

The shower and the sink downstairs flooded if you ran the water for too long.

Its a lovely villa but needs some attention.

Owner's Response: Guten Tag sehr geehrte Feriengäste,ich möchte gerne Stellung beziehen betreffend meinen Feriengästen aus England. In der Beschreibung steht Ventilatoren sind vorhanden,dass Air-Conditioning vorhanden sei steht nichts.Der Massage/Whirlpool hat tatsächlich ein kleines Loch,das geflickt wurde,die Wanne kann ich wechseln beim Hersteller,das natürlich sofort gemacht wird,wenn einmal ein Gästebuchungstermin frei wird.Der Whirlpool wird nur mit Quellwasser gefüllt.da kan es einmal vorkommen,dass etwas "Natur" im Wasser zu sehen ist.Meine lieben England-Gäste waren sehr reizende Gäste und ich bedanke mich für ihren Besuch,die Attraktionen und Informationen über die Gegend rund um Ronco sopra Ascona stehen natürlich bereit für meine geschätzten Gäste.Ein Abfluss war tatsächlich tatsächlich verstopft und wurde natürlich sofort wieder geputzt.Besten Dank mit freundlichen Grüssen Christoph lüthi

Villa "Traumblick" im Paradies

  • 5 of 5

Man glaubt es kaum, aber die Bilder stimmen zu 100%. So mag wohl das Paradies aussehen. Die 180-Grad-Aussicht auf den See ist unübertreffbar, die Wohnung ein Traum mit absoluter Ruhe, die Küche voll ausgestattet und die Gastgeber sehr hilfsbereit und nett. Wer ein übergroßes Auto hat, sollte das Angebot zum Umparken unbedingt annehmen. Ansonsten führt vor dem Haus ein wunderschöner Panoramaweg entweder nach Ronco sopra Ascona bzw. direkt nach Ascona. Eine Woche reicht definitiv nicht aus, um die umliegende Gegend mit den wunderschönen Tälern zu erkunden. Auf viele Kurven sollte man sich einstellen. Die Märkte z.B. in Bellinzona und Cannobbio sind eine schöne Abwechslung. Wer nicht selber kocht, sollte sich eher nach Italien orientieren, denn die Schweiz ist für Deutsche doch recht teuer. In Losone gibt es einen Supermarkt, der ein gutes Frühstücksangebot wie auch kleine warme Gerichte hat. Die Restaurants "Grotto Broggini" in Losone und die "Osteria Nostrana" in Ascona sind vom Ambiente und Qualität unbedingt empfehlenswert. Zum Einkaufen gibt es nach einem 15minütigen, wunderschönen Fußweg nach Ronco s.A. einen kleinen Laden sowie das Restaurant "Pinocchio", in dem man durchaus gut essen kann (aber mit SFr bezahlen muss). Noch ein Tipp: Gleich neben dem Restaurant hat eine (holländische) Masseurin ihre Praxis, die ihr Handwerk versteht. Ein Erlebnis war die Anlieferung eines 100jährigen Olivenbaumes im Nebenhaus - mit dem Helikopter. Das sieht man ja auch nicht alle Tage. Alles in allem ein toller Urlaub in einem wirklich außergewöhnlichen Haus. Wir empfehlen es sehr gerne weiter!

Ronco sopra Ascona is one of the most popular destinations at the Lago Maggiore – rich in history and culture, famous for its beautiful views, also known as the 'Balcony of the Lago Maggiore', blooming mimosas, palms, azaleas, rhododendron, citrus trees, camellias, agaves, and eucalyptus trees. There is a small supermarket, as well as very good restaurants. The immediate environment offers a lot of activities: swimming in the lake (Ascona, Porto Ronco), the Lido water park in Locarno, crystal clear rivers, Maggia, Verzasca, golf, mountain biking, horseback riding, sailing, wind surfing, water ski, flying, parachuting, paragliding, climbing, hiking, tennis, skiing. Within 10 minutes (car/bus) you are in Ascona, Locarno or Cannobio with fantastic promenades. You can also visit the New Orleans Jazz Festival, rock concerts under the moon and stars, the Locarno film festival, the Settimane Musicali (classical music), as well as the museum in Monte Verita, made famous by Hermann Hesse.

Other activities: parachuting, flying.

Golf, Golf course Loosen:

The architect Peter Harradine had the ability to integrate the beauty of this region of Loosen into an interesting golf course that has something for every player-level. The course makes its way through countless rocks, lakes and hills and represents a challenge for every skill level.

Golf course Ascona:

18 tracks on a golf course of the highest quality represent a balance between tradition and innovation. Known as one of the most beautiful golf courses in Switzerland, this golf course meanders between old wooded growth in a landscape of rare beauty. The flat championship course has an impressive technical standard.

Ski, Cardada:

Skiing only a few metres away from the city centre? That is no problem in Cardada! The slopes on the Cimetta are perfect for ski fans who don't want to spend a long time travelling to get there and who simply want to enjoy some sun and fun in the snow. The slopes curve through a breathtaking panorama and the mild temperatures convert the skiing into pure enjoyment. Cimetta is especially suited for beginners.

Bosco Gurin:

In the winter, Bosco Gurin means ski sport! From the first steps with a handful of ski lifts in the 1960s, to the creation of an aerial tram in the 90s, the offerings have expanded to include very diverse slopes fascinating even the most passionate athletes in the sport.

Nowadays Bosco Gurin comprises more than 30 slopes, suitable for beginners and advanced skiers.
