The space

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.

Wireless WiFi.

The apartment has a balcony with Lake view.

The unit was perfect for our needs; close to the station and to the tourist sights. Easy to get a ferry about 100 metres away and a short walk to the shops and restaurants. The unit was spotless and comfortable. Even had washing and drying facilities with iron and ironing board. Very happy.

The apartment was clean and in good order. Having a laundry was especially helpful after 5 weeks of travel. The rooms were warm and the view lovely. The location was close to the train station and Muralto's restaurants etc.

Thank you Gino for such a lovely stay! The location of the apartment in Locarno is just perfect! And the apartment is more then wonderful, it is so big when you are in it and has such a great feel. Gino is extremely helpful and lovely to deal with. As we enjoyed it so much, we wanted to stay an extra night and this was not a problem at all with Gino he just made it so easy. If we are in Locarno again I will definitely stay here again. Thank you!

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. Thanks Gino You made our Swiss experience perfect !!!

The apartment is spacious and location is remarkable. The host is very flexible and corporative. For family, the apartment is perfect. Despite the car park is free from 7 pm to 7 am, apart from that is payable with max period of only 2 hours which is inconvenient as I had to re-charge it every 2 hours. I wish Gino find proper solution for this3. Calle Pedrocchi 1602/3, Castello, Venezia, 30122, Italy

Thank you for your comments, unfortunately because of language misunderstanding you were lost and could not meet housekeeper at arranged time. She is there to help guests with any questions, she normally explains free parking facilities near Lido or indoor parking near station and Piazza Grande. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Gino
