About the property

Eat-in kitchen, 2 bedrooms with balconies, 2 south-facing terraces with sea and mountain views

Semi-detached house (if you are in front, left part, with glass door) of an old Ticino stone house in an exclusive location near Locarno, quiet and well developed. All rooms are south facing with views of lake and mountains. The nearly four hundred year old house is renovated, furnished in style and can be centrally heated by a woodburning stove. The kitchen leads directly onto the south facing terrace with views to Cannobio. The bedroom and bathroom are accessible from the rear side of the house. The bathroom has high quality and electrically heated. In each bedroom there is a double bed (200 x 180 cm), each with two mattresses (each 200 x 90 cm, two blankets each with a standard size of 200 x 135 cm). There is another terrace where you in the evening for a long time can admire the panorama in the sun above the garage. The spacious garden is regularly maintained, so you are surrounded from March of colorful flowers. Behind the house you can retire on a large lawn. In just a few minutes you are in the village of Brione with shops and nice restaurants. Locarno is a 10-minute or 30-minute walk.

The equipment is very solid: comfortable beds with plush mattresses, luxurious bath items, premium cookware. Cleanliness is a top priority, luxury is however deliberately omitted to support the withdrawal of an overstimulated life. On colder days you can keep kitchen and bedroom comfortably warm by the central fireplace. If necessary, a variety of cultural and other offers in the region are provided for variety. Due to the slope and stairs, the house is not suitable for disabled people.

VRBO Advertisement and some information didn't match the actual outcome of this rental

  • 2 of 5

The cottage was quaint and clean, and views of Lake Maggiore were beautiful, however, the directions to the cottage could have been much more detailed. There were no instructions and information about the keys and our rooms. Thank goodness someone was staying in the other apartment and she was kind enough to help us out. In the VRBO advertisement on the Internet it listed towels and linens were included. Later the owner sent an email asking if we would need towels and sheets. I responded yes (I didn't pack towels and sheets for my European vacation) and I was charged €50+ for one set of the skimpiest towels and one fitted sheet. I informed the owner that it clearly states towels and linens provided, but she went ahead and deducted the amount from my deposit anyway.

Owner's Response: It is important that guests read all information, and they should be informed before arriving, particularly if specifications had been given individually again and unambiguously, such as payment of tourist tax and sheets which must be paid in cash (apart from some basics such as dish towel and cloth) which was the case for this guest. It is quite stressful if people start complaining afterwards without reckognising that the trouble was not the host's fault.

Wir haben den Herbsturlaub im Tessin in vollen Zügen genossen

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung ist ein ursprüngliches tessiner Haus. In der Höhe gelegen geniesst man eine grandiose Fernsicht über den Lago Maggiore. Die Zimmer wurden geschmackvoll renoviert, das Bad wurde neu gemacht. Die Küche ist einfach, gemütlich und gut eingerichtet, alles was man zum Kochen braucht ist vorhanden (wir haben jeden Abend selber gekocht).

Die Lage ist auch sehr gut. Zentral gelegen ist man mit dem Auto aber auch mit dem öffentlichen Bus (fährt regelmässig) schnell in Locarno und von dort an anderen Orten des Nord-Tessins. Auch direkt von der Haustür aus können verschiedene Wanderungen unternommen werden.

Wir haben schon mehrmals in verschiedenen Ferienwohnungen Urlaub im Tessing gemacht. Noch nie haben wir es so sehr genossen wie hier!
