Nice house, very well equipped kitchen, but too close to main road, little bit noisy

4 of 5
Beautiful, big garden, well equipped kitchen, and an extra washing machine is there for your comfort. Our only problem was, that the house is situated by the main road of the Maggia valley, so it was a little bit noisy because of the cars.
