|Minimum Stay||3 - 4 nights|
This well-appointed and spacious 5th-floor corner apartment has a great, central location, and magnificent views of Lake Maggiore and the surrounding mountains. It has 2 bedrooms, large living room, a new fully-equipped kitchen, and a newly-renovated bathroom. The apartment is just 1 block from the lakefront, and only a 3-minute walk to the Piazza Grande and Old Town. Within 10 minutes one can walk to the main boat dock, train station, public beach and pool, theater, casino, tennis courts, and funicular (cable car) station. 'Palazzo Varesi' has 2 balconies, one off the living room (overlooking the lake) and one off the master bedroom (overlooking the mountains and Old Town). The master bedroom also has a new king-size bed. One private, covered parking place is included, accessible by the main elevator. The property is professionally managed, by the Swiss agency 'HolAp'. It has earned a '3-star' rating from the Locarno Tourist Office. References are available upon request. Now in our 16th year of rental.
Amenities:: Two balconies, Fully-equipped kitchen, Clothes iron, Radiator heat, Elevator/lift, Ceiling fans in bedrooms. Free wireless internet (Wi-fi). 'House Book' included in apartment, with extensive details on apartment building, restaurants, shops, area sights, etc.
Around Locarno:: The Locarno area is one of exceptional natural beauty, combining a subtropical Mediterranean climate with snow-capped Alpine peaks. Locarno itself is the highlight of the 'Swiss Riviera,' blending the best of Swiss and Italian cultures; it is lively but not over-bearing, cultured yet relaxed. Many wonderful tourist destinations are within easy drive. In Switzerland: Ascona, Bellinzona, Lugano, Zurich and Zermatt are all within a few hours ride. In Italy: one can easily visit the Maggiore Lake towns of Cannobio, Intra, and Stresa, as well as places such as Milan, Verona, and the famous Italian lakes Lago D'Orta and Lake Como. Many of our guests stay for 3 weeks or more (at a discount), making numerous side trips.
This apartment has a great central location, within easy walking distance of all major sites and services in Locarno. Many competing rentals are far from the center, and thus require constant use of a car to get into town.
There aren't too many places that can rival Locarno scenery, climate, food, and general quality of life. Both Locarno and your apartment were just about perfect during our stay, and we would love to (and hope to) do it all again.
Peter and Edita at Hol-Ap were very responsive and seemed to be taking good care of the place for you.
My husband and 12 year old son stayed here in August. It was perfect for us. The rental agency was very helpful and accomodating.The apartment was clean and had the views that were portrayed on the website. It was in the heart of Locarno and that is exactly what we needed and wanted. We loved that we could sit on the balcony and that we could walk everywhere as we did not have a car. We visited Old Town Locarno, Ascona, Lugano, Gandria and spent an entire afternoon at the Lido...just a short walk from the apartment. Ou son loved it...even swam in the lake....chilly! We arrived Saturday afternoon and the info book that the owners provided was so helpful. We dined at several at the restaurants...yummy food! We made several trips to Al Porto....fantastic coffee and desserts! I loved Locarno and the climate and the food...and the water. It was a fantastic trip!
It's a lovely apartment, with good conveniences, and a
special location in the center of Locarno. It has
wonderful views of the lake, and dining on the balcony
is a special treat. We'll certainly return - hopefully for
more than a week next time. Jim Fratto
Soggiorno piacevolissimo, affascinante e rilassante. L' appartamento fornito di tutto , pulito ,caldissimo e situato in una posizione eccellente : vista lago sul davanti e dietro il centro con la sua bella piazza grande .
Die Wohnung war sehr sauber und ordentlich.
Es war alles da was man sich nur wünschen kann.
Die Lage der Wohnung ist echt super!
Wir kommen gerne wieder!
Die Wohnung ist modern eingerichtet und alles war sauber und ordentlich. Das Appartement ist im Stadtzentrum vom Locarno gelegen. Alles ist schnell zu Fuss erreichbar und man ist nicht auf das Auto angewiesen. Aufgrund der zentralen Lage hört man den Verkehr etwas, was uns aber nicht weiter gestört hat. Die Sicht vom Wohnzimmer aus über den See ist wirklich schön. Wir haben eine tolle Zeit verbracht.
Center of Locarno, 1 block from lakefront, 5 minute walk from Piazza Grande and center of town.
