Beautiful Location on the border of Italy and Switzerland

4 of 5
The property is small, clean and compact but large enough to squeeze in 2 adults and 2 teenage girls. The balcony is large and west facing, so benefits from shade in the morning and the warm afternoon sunshine. Many beautiful lakeside towns are within easy travelling distance and Milan park and ride allows a full day out in the city without the hassle of city driving or parking. We visited Lugano, Locarno Maccagno, Luino, Milan and Laveno. We enjoyed the scenery everywhere but nothing surpassed the spectacular views from the cable-car descent in Laveno -an adrenaline experience not to be missed! Thank you for a fantastic and very memorable holiday. Mears family from Wales - August 2017

Excellent, quiet and beautiful

5 of 5
I'm somewhat reluctant about telling people about this place - it will make it more difficult for us to return! Anyway, the pictures of the house and extensive gardens do not do justice to the property, view or the idyllic location. The owner, Sebastiano, could not have been more helpful and we will be returning either to this house or others that he owns. There is someone who lives onsite but I did not see or hear him - although I presume he must have mowed the lawns and tended to the garden at some point. We visited a number of places around the Italian lakes during our stay - and if you are looking for peaceful surroundings and a relaxed time away from home then Ranco is the place to be.
