This apartment is overlooking the little Gutta brook. That's the sound you will hear when opening your windows or sitting on the balcony. It's very private although in a condominium of 26 apartments called Residence La Perla. You will enjoy wonderful views of the Lago Maggiore, the mountains, the peninsula of Magadino with the two towns of Locarno and Ascona from – not only the balcony – but also from the two bedrooms. According to the meteorological institute of Locarno the Locarnese hills - where Orselina is located - is the sunniest area in the whole of Switzerland with 2100 hours sunshine during the year.
The apartment has over 90 m2 living space. Through a little entrance hall you enter the living and dining area with a fireplace.
The condominium boasts an indoor swimming pool, a sauna and your laundry is done in the private laundromat at the disposal of owners and their guests. A garage space can be bought for CHF 25’000.
There are lots of things to do in the area: Enjoy a round of golf on the LPGA champion ship golf course of Gerre-Losone, go for a hike on the monte bre, take a paragliding lesson on the Cardada, rent an (electric) bike from the Brione rental station, go for a dip in the lake.
... and of course you will not starve! If you decided to cook, there is a little shop just around the corner. If you do not want to cook and don't want to drive either, there are excellent restaurants as well as local Grottos in walking distance. The local bakery is open on 363 days of the year.
The architecture as well as the scenery is breath-taking. Visit the Verzasca Dam one of the most popular bungee jumping venues after a James Bond stuntman jumped off it in the opening scene of the 1995 film GoldenEye. Walk on the historical path of Brione - a artist's hub of the Ticino - or visit one of the many festivals of the area: New Orleans festival of Ascona, the film festival of Locarno and more. Take boat and visit the Italian markets of Luino and Cannobbio or just visit Italy and do some shopping.
There are hip places in both Locarno and Ascona and there is the luna parco for the very young ones.
I am sure you will fall in love with the area and you will find lots and lots of things to do,
I am looking forward to meeting you. See you soon
