Lake Maggiore is the second largest lake in Italy after Lake Garda.
While most of the lake lies in Italy, the north end belongs to Switzerland and it is here that we find the town of Locarno. Locarno is the highest of the Swiss Riviera, blending the best of Swiss and Italian cultures – the warmth of Italy with the efficiency of Switzerland.
You can enjoy the many wonders of the region staying in a beautiful two bedroom apartment, only 50m from the lakeside with views over the lake to the mountains beyond.
Locarno has something for everyone – enjoy the beach and watersports including sailing, surfing and water skiing. Cruise to the islands of Isola Madre. Isola Pescatore and Isola Bella. Play 18 hole golf course, or go riding in the surrounding countryside.
Come in August for the International Film Festival.
This beautiful apartment is within walking distance to Piazza Grande, Debarcadero and train station.
Two bedroom, two bathrooms, dining table with 6 chairs, Kitchen and large living room with double sofabed.
The apartment has a balcony with Lake view.

Alles bestens. Geräumige, gut eingerichtete Wohnung, zu dieser Jahreszeit sogar mit ein bisschen Morgensonne auf dem Balkon. Wir kommen gerne wieder, danke.
Puntualità e cordialità di Monika, ha anche dato qualche informazioni sulle attività di fine anno in zona che ci sono state utile. L'appartamento è perfetto, ci abbiamo soggiornato in due coppie con i nostri bambini piccoli e tutto era a disposizione per questi 3 giorni.
We had a wonderful stay over Christmas. The apartment was exactly as described. Clean and bright. The location is perfect. It is an easy walk to all attractions in town. Parking during the day is difficult.
Monika was great.
Beautifull apartment, close to the city center and the lake. Parking is expensive, some guidance would be helpful, e.g. Sunday is free parking in front of the apartment.
Glad you enjoyed your stay.
Parking is also free from 7pm to 7am everyday, there is also indoor parking approx 200 mt. from apartment ( cheaper than street parking ).
There are also some free parking spaces approx 5 minutes walk from apartment.
Normally the housekeeper provides this info on arrival.
Great stay as described in previous reviews. Would recommend to travel by train as no parking is available. You can park for a fee in front of the house, but only for maximum 1 hour. Would love to have WiFi on our return. Unfortunately this apartment has no WLAN. Enjoy your stay.
L'appartement est grand, lumineux et très propre. L'emplacement est idéal, tout près du lac et à quelques minutes à pied de la piazza grande. Il y a tout ce qu'il faut pour cuisiner. Accueil très chaleureux et en français de Monica.
The Locarno apartment was very positive suprise. The apartment was bigger than expected (huge living room), super clean and the location was great. The owner provided us a high chair and baby cot when asked. Only minuses came from the noise from the bars below on friday and saturday (live band that played until midnight) and the baby cot that was not good. But I would defenitely recommend this apartment to anyone.
