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.
Tourist tax CHF3.25 - per adult - per day - to be paid locally on arrival.
The pleasure was ours then we spent our holidays at Gino's appartament.
It is very clean, large flat with a good view to the Lake.
Our next visit, I hope, it will be free for hiring.
Wonderfull Apartment recomendet for everyone for a perfekt Holiday thank you Gino
The apartment is beautiful.......spacious, open and airy. Its primarily white with splashes of color. It is much more beautiful than the pictures. There are also great views from virtually every window.
Monica met us with the keys. She is very friendly and sweet. Both Monica and Gino are so helpful and respond almost immediately to messages.
The location in Locarno is fantastic. The apartment is a block from the train station, the ferry dock and the tourist information station. Aldi and the Coop and Migros grocery stores are within easy walking distance. There is also a great bakery and gelato nearby.
We had considered staying in Lugano, put are glad we chose Locarno. We enjoyed the ferry for trips to Ascona and Italy and the scenic train trip to Dommodosola which originates in Locarno. Both the train and ferry were just steps from our door. The castles in Bellinzona and the mountains of Lugano are also just a short train ride away.
This is a perfect place for sight seers!
Gino's apartment is huge, clean, comfortable, new, very good location, very quiet. The living room has the lake view(sight blocked by lakeside trees ) and the bedroom has has the mountain view. There are also washer and dryer in the apartment! We met Gino's housekeeper Monika, who is very friendly. We spend 2 good days in Locarno, thanks Gino.
Das Apartment ist top, gross, sauber, stilvoll eingerichtet. Das Bett ist bequem. Die Anmeldung und Abreise verlief problemlos. Lage top in der Nähe der Altstadt, fast direkt am See und nur wenige Schritte vom Bahnhof. Kücheneinrichtung alles vorhanden (Ofen, Toaster, Spülmaschine, Wasserkocher). Würden wir jederzeit wieder buchen.
This is the most amazing place and the apartment exceeds our expectations by far. Gino was extremely helpful . We changed our dates and our arrival time and Gino could not have been more accomadating . He responded to all messages within minutes ( and we are in a complete different time zone )
As for the apartment , spectacular . We are a family of 6 and there was plenty of room , the apartment is huge, clean and very comfortable. The apartment is centrally located ( 2 minutes to train station , 5 minutes to beautiful town square). Monika met us and showed us in to the apartment ..
I would highly recommend this apartment as it is not only great value for money, but the perfect location for a relaxing fun holiday.
You made our Swiss experience perfect !!!
This is a great place to stay while visiting Locarno and the surrounding area. Gino was a pleasure to work with for the booking process and friendly Monika arrived to meet us on time. The apartment was very clean and looks exactly like the photos posted. Location was excellent, right on the lake and within walking distance of restaurants, bars, shoppes, etc. There is no parking on site, but we parked our car in street parking nearby. Just be mindful of the meter. We were able to find metered spots that allowed full day parking about a 10 min walk away. Would stay here again!
This apartment in Locarno is marvellous:
Very large, clean, fully equipped, and even quite although in the center of Muralto.
Within a walking distance of just 1 to 5 minutes you can reach the Lago Maggiore, lots of cafes and restaurants, the central train and bus station, a Mobility car station ((website hidden)), and even the cog railway up to Cimetta (where you have a beautiful view onto Lago Maggiore and the surrounding mountains).
This apartment is an ideal starting point for lots of excursion, e.g. to Valle Verzasca, Centovalli, Ascona, Lugano, and much more.
It's also ideal if you want to attend one of the large events at Locarno's Piazza Grande (e.g. (website hidden)).
We will surely come back!
The apartment is clean and conveniently located 5mins from the Locarno train station. Lake Maggio is in front at the balcony and u could use the wifi from bar downstairs. Gino is a great host who often reply to ur messages instantly. Thank you for sharing with us ur lovely space and love to visit the sunny side of Switzerland again!
