Why Urs Grütter chose Vira (Gambarogno)
I am now retired and was looking for a nice quiet place to be able to withdraw myself back and relax and found it in the Residenza ViraLago.
What makes this Condo unique
Residenza ViraLago is located very beautifully and especially, directly on Lake Maggiore with a beautiful view of Lake Maggiore. Vira is a small, typical Ticino village with the appropriate private and pristine atmosphere. Ideal are the extremely short distance to shopping, bus stop, pharmacy, to the tourist information, a butcher with daily fresh fish from the lake, to the post office and restaurants. The infrastructure of ViraLago is very good and is in an excellent condition, i.e. with a laundry room (washer and dryer), gym with television, sauna and cold plunge pool and lounge room, indoor pool with massage jets, three lawns (one in front of the indoor pool, another one below with pergola and tables for dining or for enjoying a glass of wine, and a third one towards the private beach with a variety of boats and equipment.

Fabulous apartment in a fabulous location
Simply the prettiest place we have visited! Breathtaking and the apartment is in a great position. Everyone in the building was friendly and our kids had a great time. They loved the pool and jumping in the lake.
The apartment has everything you need and it was great we didn’t need to take bedding, towels and oil etc fir cooking
Urs even provided coffee which was a lovely surprise - we love coffee
Would definitely aim to return
Great convenient place!
The apartment has everything you could need. It was very clean and was so convenient with parking right out front and the access on the ground floor. Bed was very comfortable and the apartment was very child friendly with our 2 little ones. We will definitely stay again!
Sehr schöne Ferienanlage mit Direktzugang zum See
Netter Empfang von Urs Grütter und kompetente Einweisung in die gut eingerichtete Wohnung. Alles Notwendige ist vorhanden - man kann echt nur mit den persönlichen Sachen anreisen. Bei Fragen, die im Laufe des Aufenthalts auftauchten, hat Urs Grütter immer sofort geantwortet. Die Ferienanlage enthält einen kleinen Fitnessraum und ein schönes Indoorpool. Die Anlage ist in einem sehr guten und sauberen Zustand und wird vom Hauswart engagiert betreut. Alle Mitbewohner der Anlage haben wir als sehr freundlich und offen empfunden, es gab nette Begegnungen und Gespräche. In Vira hat es einen Einkausladen mit integrierter Bäckerei, eine Tankstelle und einen Kiosk, sowie eine Metzgerei und ein Fischgeschäft mit frischer Ware. Daneben hat es einige Restaurants und ein Takeaway. Wir haben vorallem das feine Essen und die nette Bedienung in der Pizzeria Branca genossen (beste je gegessene Pizzas mit feinem dünnem Teig und herrlichen Zutaten; auch die übrigen Gerichte sind super - erwähnenswert ist auch das Chillöl zur Pizza und die Arabiata-Teigwaren). Daneben waren wir auch im Restaurant Riva und im Kaffee der Tennisanlage - auch da haben wir uns wohlgefühlt. In Vira hat es einen langen Steinstrand und einen schönen kurzen Spazierweg dem See entlang. Wir können nur Gutes berichten und das Vira Lago gerne empfehlen.
Super netter Vermieter, tolle Wohnung mit allem erdenklichen ausgestattet.
Tolle Wohnung am See. Gepflegte Wohnanlage.
Sehr schöne Anlage direkt am See

Tolle Wohnung, sehr guter Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen. Der Vermieter ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit.
