Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Locarno - Apart. Residenza Forum Locarno

Elegant equipment, TV, Wi-Fi. Large terrace, garden furniture, small lake view

Locarno is a city to enjoy. Strolling through the narrow streets of the romantic old town, admiring the beautiful flowers in the park and watching people on the bustling Piazza Grande while having a cappuccino. In summer, everyone meets on the Piazza Grande especially for Open air concerts or during the famous international film festival in August, which attracts lots of visitors. The Piazza Grande is the heart of the city of Locarno, lined by sophisticated houses and little cafés on the streets. The famous pilgrimage church Madonna del Sasso dominates the city. You have a fantastic view of the city, the lake and the mountains in the backdrop. The nearby mountain Cardada-Cimette is reachable by an aerial lift. In summer, it is the meeting point for paragliders and during winter you can go skiing or take a ride on the sledge. Time for culture. The mighty Castello Visconteo and the museum located in the middle of the castle walls are especially worth seeing.

The mild and sunny winter invites you to go for a walk along the tranquil lakeside of Lake Maggiore or to go by bike. Enjoy one of the most beautiful walks of Switzerland. Nice excursions with stunning views await you.

Parco delle Camelie and Via alla Riva. The Parco delle Camelie is definitely worth seeing.

We can recommend walking on the Via alla Riva as well as the Parco della Pace

and Giardini Arp.

A Perfect Home In A Perfect Part of the World

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I (from Portland, Oregon USA) enjoyed the superb amenities and perfect location of this apartment for 7 days starting March 31, 2011. This truly is a wonderfully equipped, luxury apartment just a few steps from the waterfront and central downtown of Locarno. Two large flat screen TV's, a full complement of worldwide TV channels -- including many broadcasting in English, and a dedicated DSL wifi connection added to the comfortable, clean and secure surroundings. Even the parking was secure, well-lit and convenient (just two floors below the unit).

Locarno is a wonderful destination and we've enjoyed it many times as we have cousins that live in the nearby Valle Maggia -- but this is the first time we decided to get our own place to stay -- and we couldn't have picked a better spot.

Email communication with the owner was pleasant and easy even though we only speak/write English. Our wire transfer was immediately acknowledged though it is worth noting that the owner will also be charged a transfer fee (in our case CHF 12) in addition to our own bank's transfer fee so we needed to make arrangements to include that in the deposit/cleaning amount we gave to the maid upon arrival.

Also it is worth remembering to make sure you have the phone number of the maid before arriving -- and if you are similarly language challenged like we are (only speaking English) -- that the maid only speaks German. Thankfully we were able to get the owner's husband on the phone to both let maid know we had arrived and to translate the details regarding paying for and accessing parking and wifi, and arranging the date/time of the maid's return of our deposit.

We learned during this trip that Switzerland apartment laundry facilities (washer/dryer) are typically not located within the unit -- and are scheduled for a certain time/date each week. This difference and the general absence of independent laundromats (other than dry cleaning) makes longer term traveling more challenging in Switzerland apartments including this one. We assume such apartments are more commonly rented to European holiday travelers who are returning to their own homes after their seven day stay. Thankfully in our case the owner responded to our email request and was very accommodating in arranging for the maid to drop off the laundry room access/payment card -- which worked out perfectly for us.

Thanks for a great stay.

Traumhafter Urlaub am Lago Maggiore

  • 5 out of 5
Super Ferienwohnung, top ausgestattet, sehr schöne Lage. Man muss allerdings etwas Straßenlärm in kauf nehmen, da man in 2. Reihe zur Promenade wohnt, aber wen das nicht stört, kann sich dort wirklich wohlfühlen und eine schöne Zeit verbringen. Würde diese Wohnung jeder Zeit wieder buchen.

Owner's Response: Vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung. Es freut uns, dass Sie sich wohlgefühlt haben.
Inzwischen haben wir eine geräumige, moderne 3,5 Zimmerwohnung im Zentrum von Locarno erworben. Diese liegt an sehr ruhige Lage nahe der Seepromenade und der Piazza Grande.

Schmuckstück in Locarno

  • 5 out of 5
In dieser sehr modernen und toll eingerichteten Ferienwohnung haben wir, Ehepaar aus Hessen, uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Ausstattung der Wohnung ist sehr geschmackvoll. Die Betreuung vor Ort war sehr gut. Die Nähe zu den
Sehenswürdigkeiten von Locarno besonders zum See ist optimal.Wir empfehlen die Wohnung weiter und kommen selbst mit Sicherheit wieder.

Tolle Stadtwonung mit gehobener Ausstattung

  • 5 out of 5
Wir (Ehepaar 46/58) waren 14 Tage in der Ferienwohnung in Locarno. Haben selten eine so toll ausgestattete Stadt-Wohnung (alle hochwertigen Möbel und die gesamte Ausstattung ist fast neu) mit gehobenem Standard gehabt. Hier fehlt es auch wirklich an nichts. Die etwas laute Uferstraße wird durch die Fußwegnähe zum Zentrum, zu Supermärkten, zum Bahnhof und Bushaltestelle, zur Funikulare (und von dort zur Seilbahn) und zu den Bootsanlegern kompensiert. Als Stadtwohnung in Locarno sehr zu empfehlen!

Verkehrsgünstig gelegene Stadtwohnung

  • 2 out of 5
Das Appartement liegt im hinteren von zwei neu gebauten siebenstöckigen Wohnblöcken direkt an der Uferpromenade von Locarno. Die Wohnung befindet sich im ersten Stock. Der Blick vom Balkon geht etwa in Richtung Osten (eher ONO). Aufgrund dieser Lage hat man nachmittags keine Sonne auf dem Balkon. Dies kann man auch als Vorteil sehen, da sich die Wochnung nicht tagsüber aufheizen kann. Man blickt hauptsächlich auf das gegenüber liegende Appartementhaus - rechts davon ist ein Spalt in der Bebauung durch den man etwas von See sieht, links ist ein Stück des Parks erkennbar. Die Anlage macht einen gepflegten und neuen Eindruck. Einige der Wohnungen sind noch nicht bezogen.

Von der Wohnung aus sind es nur 50m zu Fuß zur Uferpromenade. Die Uferpromenade ist stark befahren trotz der Bemühungen der Stadt Locarno, den Verkehr durch den Tunnel umzuleiten. Bis spät in die Nacht lassen dort Auto- und vor allem Motorradfahrer ihre Motoren aufheulen. Besonders am Wochenende und bei gutem Wetter ist der Straßenlärm auch bei geschlossenem Fenster deutlich hörbar. Nachts bei offenem Fenster zu schlafen ist selbst mit Ohrstöpseln nicht möglich. Die Fenster sorgten leider nicht für einen ausreichenden Schallschutz.

Zum Glück wurde uns ein Ventilator zur Verfügung gestellt, der angenehm leise lief und auch nachts für Frischluftzufuhr sorgte. An heißen Sommertagen dürfte man besonders auf diesen Ventilator angewiesen sein, da keine Klima-Anlage vorhanden ist.

Die Ausstattung der Wohnung hat einen hohen Standard. TV, Blu-Ray-Player und Internet sind wie beschrieben und funktionieren einwandfrei. Die Küche ist wirklich mit allem Erdenklichen ausgestattet und in einem sehr guten Zustand. Es macht Spaß, dort etwas Schönes fürs Abendessen zu zaubern.

Auch das Bad ist sauber, neu und in einem sehr guten Zustand.

Touren ins Valle Maggia, Valle Versasca und Schifffahrten zu den Inseln des Lago waren Highlights dieses Urlaubs. Restauranttip: Antica Osteria.

Die Betreuung vor Ort durch Signora L. hat funktioniert. Besonders Jugendliche oder Twens würden sich in dieser Atmosphäre wohlfühlen, denn es gibt Internet, TV und man hat sicherlich auf der Uferpromenade vielfältige Vergügungsmöglichkeiten. Auch als Ausgangsbasis für mehrtägige Bergtouren bietet sich diese Wohnung aufgrund ihrer zentralen Lage an.

empfehlenswert!

  • 5 out of 5
Moderne, gut ausgestattete Stadtwohnung, sehr sauber, ideal gelegen (einen Steinwurf vom See entfernt, zentrumsnah) - wir haben uns von Anfang an wohl gefühlt!
Der Tiefgaragenstellplatz im Haus ist bei dieser zentralen Lage natürlich ein Segen...
Besonders erwähnenswert ist auch die freundliche Betreuung vor Ort - Vielen Dank dafür!

Wir kommen gerne einmal wieder.....
