Description

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Ronco sopra Ascona - Casa Occhio d'Oro

The 60's villa is situated in a terraced garden in the midst of palms, mimosas, camellias, and vines. Roomy, lovingly and personally furnished, it has a direct view of the Brissago islands. Evenings, when the moon rises above the Gambarogno and is mirrored in the lake, one could be in a fairy tale. One can mount the Giridone right from the house.

Further Details: 3 plate stove in the kitchen. Lush vegetation and a mild climate, 10 km to Italy,

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Unforgettable holiday at the Lago Maggiore…

  • 5 of 5

A really wonderful house with breath-taking views over the beautiful Lago Maggiore: dinner, sundowners or breakfast on the fabulous, lake-view terraces were truly unforgettable. Add lazy lunches by the sun-kissed pool, and it was sometimes hard to drag ourselves away to explore the surrounding area…

But of course we did explore the amazing local area... trips into Italy and the local markets, drives through the stunning mountain scenery, trekked up a stream to swim and play under a mountain waterfall with the kids, the Michelin restaurant in Ronco village itself definitely deserves its star (not all of them do), and the Locarno village “Moon & Stars” concerts are rightly legendary (we saw Zucchero)…. and so very much more… Unforgettable…

Of course, we didn’t come close to scratching the surface of what this area has to offer: we will definitely return to Lago Maggiore - and we will definitely try to book this house again…

Paradise found!

  • 5 of 5

We (happy grandparents, happy us and our totally happy 9 year old son) spent the most amazing time at the beautiful Casa Occhio D’Oro! THE perfect location! And the perfect place we all looked forward to coming home to after our many daily fun Ticino adventures! A nice bbq on the patio, overlooking the Lago Maggiore, some vino rosso - the perfect way to end a fun day. Thank you, liebe Gabi, for your hospitality! We so hope to be back in the not too distant future.

A fantastic house at the Lago Maggiore

  • 5 of 5

This year we visited Casa Occhio D’oro for the second time. And again, we enjoyed it tremendously. The view over the Lago Maggiore, seeing Isole de Brissage from the terrace. Having breakfast in the sun and of course the large pool were (again) fantastic. Although the weather was not so good this year, we still had a wonderful time in this lovely house. Due to the covered terrace, you can still sit outside while it rains. The view over the lake is breathtaking, even at night. Also the dining room has a fantastic view over the lake and Ascona.

The surroundings of Ronco are amazing. You can visit Italy, or explore Switzerland. Even Milan is not that far away.

Next year we want to come back to Tessin and we are very grateful that we can visit this beautiful house again!

Ein Traum wurde wahr...

  • 5 of 5

Dies war der erste Aufenthalt mit der ganzen Familie in der Schweiz - und vorab: Wir waren nicht das letzte Mal dort. Ronco sopra Ascona, dieser wunderbare malerisch auf einer Felsterasse gelegene Ort in Kombination mit diesem TOP Feriendomizil haben es uns angetan.

Geräumig - mit viel Charme und Flair - konnte das Haus alle Familienmitglieder begeistern! Die Ausstattung lässt keine Wünsche offen.

Während die Kinder viel Zeit am / im Pool verbrachten, genossen wir Erwachsene zu jeder Tageszeit die Traum Aussicht auf den Lago Maggiore und die vorgelagerten Brissago Inseln. Ein unbeschreibliches Erlebnis und sehr faszinierend - bei jeder Wetterlage.

Ebenso die fantastischen Rundgänge in der Umgebung und die tollen Ausflugsmöglichkeiten. Ascona - schnell zu erreichen und sehr sehenswert. Ganz toll auch die Nähe zu Italien - wir haben mehrere Ausflüge nach Italien gemacht.

Alles in allem war es ein Traum Urlaub mit perfekter Mischung aus Ruhe, Erholung, Entspannung und Unternehmungen für die ganze Familie!

Paradiesische Lage und viel Komfort!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit 5 Personen (3 davon im Teenageralter) im Casa d'Occhio d'Oro und es hat allen sehr gefallen. Das Haus bietet alles, was man zum Erholen braucht, und ist groß genug, um auch mal für sich sein zu können. Es ist ruhig und stört keinen, wenn im Pool mal lautstark geplanscht wird.

Besonders schön ist die Lage hoch über dem See mit Rundblick von Ascona bis Verbania, den wir schon beim Frühstück aber auch abends im Dunkeln sehr genossen haben. Tagsüber standen Wanderungen direkt vom Haus aus, Ausflüge ins nahe Italien (sehr vorteilhaft in Zeiten des starken Franken), oder einfach Relaxen am Pool auf dem Programm. Ascona lässt sich über einen herrlichen Höhenweg ohne nennenswerte Steigung in 40 Minuten zu Fuß erreichen.

Das Haus selbst war in einwandfreiem Zustand, und eine Betreuung vor Ort übernahm die Einweisung und Übergabe des Hauses.
