About This Listing
The BARCA is a holiday residence, built in the 50s on a high rock approx. 160 feet above Lake Maggiore.
In total privacy, enjoy the wonderful panoramic view over Lake Maggiore and the neighbouring mountains. Visit exciting Ascona, the breathtaking Maggia Valley, the limitless Lake Maggiore or the pulsating Milano.
An old stone staircase with 128 steps takes you to this little jewel on Ascona's Rivebelle. One bedroom can sleep two persons and a second can sleep two or four. In the living area, there are also two other places for sleeping. Outside, in front of the house, there is a charming balcony, and an outdoor pool set in the well-kept garden with its pergola.
The former fishing village of Ascona is situated in a charming, sun-kissed bay in the north-west of Lake Maggiore, in the Swiss canton of Ticino.
With only 5,000 inhabitants, Ascona is a popular holiday area. During the 2008 European Football Championships, the German national team had its headquarters here. The region is also famous for the breathtaking Maggia Valley. Lake Maggiore, approx. 43 miles long, extends deep into Italy.
The pulsating city of Milan is approx. 70 miles away.

What an amazing property! The house was just as described/pictured, and the views certainly didn't disappoint. We had planned to spend a day touring Ascona and a 1/2 day at the Brissago Islands, but after getting to the house we decided that we had the best view right where we were. The kitchen was well equipped and there was a charcoal grill, so we ended up cooking all of the nights at the house. The owners were extremely friendly, and they provided us with detailed information on how everything in the house works. We would definitely stay again!
The hosts were very responsive and very friendly. The house itself is absolutely spectacularly situated high above the beautiful Lago Maggiore and only a few minutes from the wonderful village of Ascona.
The parking situation however is tricky and is not recommended for families with small children. If the pool is important for you, check with the host re. its availability.
