BRIGHT & LUXURIOUS FLAT, 4*, 40M TO LAKE PROMENADE & LANDING STAGE. LIFT, GARAGE

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
  • Review Submitted: 06-Apr-2011
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2011
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.
