Overview

Photos and Description of this Piazzogna holiday condo

Relax, swim, enjoy in a very nice apartment on Lake Maggiore

The 3 bedroom apartment is located in a beautiful and renovated complex on Lake Maggiore i.e. with direct private access to the lake. The apartment has been recently renovated and almost all the furniture is new and it has been furnished with great care and attention to detail. The entrance to this apartment is located at the entrance to the complex and so offers great comfort level for shopping or for a walk. It is suitable for 4 persons, or utmost two adults with up to three children. Since the kitchen is new and well equipped you can cook quickly. Everything that you need is available In the kitchen, such as sugar, flour, oil, vinegar and many spices. In addition, it has a stereo equipment and a new 55' LED TV along with a sofa (sofa bed 140cm x 200cm) and two armchairs in the living room, which has a Ticinese panoramic window. The bedroom is equipped with a new box spring double bed and a 32' LED TV as you can still comfortably enjoy a movie in the bed or watch the latest news after a long day in the evening. The bathroom is large has a bath, a shower, a washbasin, a toilet and a bidet. The price of course includes the bedding and also hand/ bath towels. You only have to travel with minimal luggage because it also has beach towels for outdoor use. Vira is a very nice Ticino village without too many tourists with the real Ticinese charm with narrow streets and a beautiful beach promenade (not mundane so idyllic and very relaxing). From Vira, one can go on very nice short and longer hikes or take a boat to Locarno or Ascona and the Brissago Island. It is also quite possible to ride to Italy to Luino, Canobbio or on the Borromean Islands by boat. In addition, it has very many objects of interest especially in the surrounding and in the towns of Locarno, Lugano, Bellinzona and Ascona and you can be in Milan rather quickly by car to see its many interesting buildings, the cathedral, theatres and several museums. A holiday with Vira as the base is ideal for exploring Ticino or just to enjoy the private and direct access to the lake fulfills all the desires with regard to recovery and relaxation.

Why Urs Grütter chose Lugano Centre

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.

Ruhig gelegene Wohnung

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist in einem guten Zustand, sehr sauber. Die Küche voll ausgestattet bis hin zu Gewürzen, dies hat unsere Erwartungen mehr als übertroffen.

Von Stühlen mit Tisch auf der Terrasse bis hin zu den Liegen am See, es fehlt an nichts! Zum Glück hatten wir auch traumhaftes Wetter , so konnten wir auch am Abend draußen essen.

Blick auf den Lago und alles in himmlischer Ruhe, ideal zum entspannen.

Was will man mehr?

Wir wurden herzlich empfangen von dem Verwalter.

mit sehr praktischen Details und Bequemlichkeiten ausgestattet

  • 5 of 5

RUHIGE LAGE, denoch beste Anbindung an Infrastruktur. Der Strand ist klein, lädt denoch zur kurzen Abkühlung im See ein. Das vorhandene Surfbrett mit Paddel hat unseren Kindern viel Spass bereitet. gerne wieder

Preis-Leistung

  • 2 of 5

Negativ:

Sehr kleine Wohnung mit Kindern.

Sehr wenig Stauraum frei in Küche. Jede Schublade und Schrank voll.

Nur bedingt sauber. Zum Teil sehr viel Staub und Spinnweben.

Keine grosse Willkommenskultur. Vermieter wirkt designiert.

Hauswart nimmt seine Aufgabe sehr ernst dass die Hausordnung auch eingehalten wird.

18.00 Schwimmbad nur noch für Eigentümer. Man wird regelrecht rausgeworfen!

Sauna muss geplant werden. Wird nicht gerne vom Hauswart gesehen dass Sauna benutzt wird.

kein Balkon

keine Aussicht von der Wohnung

Stickige Luft

Preis-Leistung stimmt am Schluss nicht.

Owner's Response: Das haut einem ja um bei einem so was von einem negativen Kommentar und kein einziger positiver Aspekt. Die Wohnung wurde schon viele male vermietet und die meisten Mieter waren mit der Wohnung und der gesamten Anlage sehr zufrieden. Wie man ein Apartment mit 62 m2 als klein bezeichnen kann mit zwei kleinen Kindern ist mir unverständlich aber es gibt sicherlich Alternativen wie zB eine gleich grosse Hotelsuite mieten für einen deutlich höheren Preis und dann stimmt vermutlich für ihn auch das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis. Die Küche ist neu und modern und man kann alle Gewürze, Oel, Essig, Kaffeebohnen und Nespresso-Kapseln frei benutzen und damit sind die Schränke auch ziemlich voll inkl. Geschirr, Gläser, Besteck, Kochgeräte, Pfannen, Untersetzer, Platten etc. Was Herr B. noch zusätzlich versorgen möchte hat mit Garantie Platz in den Schränken. Dieses Argument ist sowas von an den Haaren herbei gezogen. Das Apartment wird nach jeder Vermietung gewissenhaft und gründlich gereinigt von „zum Teil sehr viel Staub“ kann beim besten Willen keine Rede sein. Dies ist eine wirklich böswillige Unterstellung die nicht der Wahrheit entspricht. In der Beschreibung meiner Ferienwohnung steht klar und deutlich dass das Hallenbad um 18:00 geschlossen wird und dass meine Ferienwohnung keinen Balkon hat und keine direkte Sicht auf den Lago Maggiore hat. Dies nachträglich als negativ hinzustellen ist eigentlich unter der Gürtellinie so wie der gesamte Kommentar unter der Gürtellinie ist. Insbesondere deshalb da sich der Mieter bei mir nie gemeldet hat um die von Ihm aufgeführten Mängel mit mir vor Ort zu besprechen. In Bezug auf die Willkommenskultur kan ich nur sagen dass ich den Mieter freundlich in Vira empfangen habe und Ihm die Wohnung und die Anlage gezeigt habe, sowie Ihm die Schlüssel übergeben habe. Auf Wunsch des Mieters habe ich neben den vier vorhandenen Betten auch noch ein Kinderbett und ein neues und sehr schönes Babybett zur Verfügung gestellt. Also alles in allem glaube ich mich für den Mieter eingesetzt zu haben und die Beurteilung des Mieters ist sehr einseitig und subjektiv negativ.

Urlaub mit Kindern - tiptop

  • 4 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung ist zwar klein, aber sehr gut ausgerüstet. Die Kinder haben das Hallenbad und den nahen See sehr genossen. Der Vermieter ist unkompliziert und freundlich.
