Fabulous Place

  • 5 out of 5
Dear Sabina
What a fabulous place this is! We still can't get over how wonderful the view is after looking at it for 2 weeks!
The swimming pool was a real luxury and much appreciated. Sorry we smoked you out with the barbecue - blame the sausages.
Do hope we are fitter after walking up from Brissago a few times. Now it is back to work.
Many thanks for a lovely holiday.
Maria & Richard

Ein herrlicher Urlaub

  • 5 out of 5
Wir haben dieses wunderschöne Fleckchen im Internet gefunden und das Haus - oder besser die Villa - auch "live" als ganz herrlich erlebt. Gerne hätten wir mehr über die Geschichte des Hauses erfahren!
Dank der besonderen Ruhe des Hauses konnten wir uns bestens erholen. Auch einige heftige Gewitter haben uns nicht gestört - dadurch hatten wir Zeit in der vorzüglichen Hausbibliothek zu stöbern.
Empfehlenswerte Ausflüge: Natürlich das Hermann Hesse Museum in Montagnola, aber auch die Fahrt nach Como hatte spezielle Reize. Unbedingt sollte mann einen Ausflug zum St. Gotthard Pass machen. Einzigartig ist sicher die romanische Kirche S. Nicolae in Gornico.
Wir werden vor allem die wunderbare Terasse vermissen - einfach nur sitzen und schauen !...

Owner's Response: Ja, ich verstehe was Sie meinen: Die Lage des Hauses ist wirklich einzigartig. Auch wir sitzen sehr gerne auf unserer grossen Sonnenterasse und blicken über den See und in die gegenüber liegenden Hügel und Berge. An klaren Tagen kann man sogar bis nach Bellinzona und bis nach Luino in Italien sehen.

Schönstes Urlaubziel am Lago Maggiore

  • 5 out of 5
Liebe Familie Bächlin
Selten hat uns ein Urlaub so gut gefallen und so gut getan wie dieser !
Die Casa "Al Riale" hat nicht nur schöne Räume, einen tollen Aussichtsbalkon, einen gepflegten Garten und Swimmingpool, sondern darüber hinaus viel Charme.
Das Haus mit seiner langen Geschichte besitzt eine gute Ausstrahlung und ist durchatmet von einem guten Geist!
Wir grüssen alle, die schon da waren und alle, die noch kommen werden !

Perfect Place on the Lago Maggiore

  • 5 out of 5
Dear Sabina and Michael
My wife and I spent many hours on the internet attempting to find the perfect place on the Lago Maggiore to bring our visiting friends from Australia with their kids. Casa "Al Riale" looked to be the exact place we were after and we are very pleased to write, that it didn't disappoint !
Our Australian Friends had a wonderful time visiting Ascona and Canobio with us and enjoying the nice ferry trips in between. This was made all the more exciting by the fact, that each day, we knew, we were returning to our beautiful 600 year old villa on the hill !
Every late afternoon was spent with a Prosecco in the little grotto in the garden. Surely this grotto must have the best view of any grotto anywhere and the addition of a crackling fireplace and a beautiful sunset made the experience a lasting memory for all time.
After dinner each night we sat around the indoor fireplace, enjoyed a few Italian red wines and talked and laughed till late in this homely environment.
We had a wonderful time and leave with lasting memories.

The villa is located at the edge of a quiet village called Porta, approx. 170 meters above Brissago (15 minutes walk approx.). You will enjoy the superb panoramic view to the lake 'Maggiore' and into the mountains in the back. In Brissago there are a few shops, where you can buy bread groceries and fish. You'll also find two pharmacies, a post office and a tourist office as well as many restaurants. Ascona, Locarno or Italy is only 15 to 20 minutes by car. There are many enjoyable trips you can undertake by boat or by car to places of interest in the Ticino and in Italy. The house is also a starting point for nice walks through the woods or into the mountains nearby (up to 2200 metres).

Other Activities: Golf coures in Ascona an near Losone both 18 holes

Golf: There are two golf clubs in Ascona and Locarno with both 18 holes sites
