“This holiday apartment in the Italian part of Switzerland is perfect for a holiday of outdoor activities. Tons of great places to visit nearby and wonderful picnics and swimming at the lake just a few minutes away. Locarno is an easy town to get around with lots to see and do – nature trips, restaurants, etc. The apartment is great. Really comfortable, spacious, well equipped. We have wonderful memories of our stay there. Werner and his family are the perfect exchange partners. They left our house in perfect order after their stay here and Werner was really helpful with our trip to Switzerland. Much recommended!”
Werner's reviewsAs a host (7)
“Nous recommandons vivement un séjour à Locarno où nous avons passé de merveilleuses vacances avec nos deux enfants. L\'appartement est très bien équipé, très bien placée et très calme avec piscine, sauna et salle de sport dans la résidence. La région est absolument magnifique (Lac, montagne et ville intéressante,...). Très bon contact avec Susanne et Werner. Un grand merci! Maud and Mat.”
“We enjoyed our stay in the comfortable apartment of these family. It's easy to find, clean and spacious. Close to the lake and the city center of Locarno. Supermarket round the corner. Bikes available, which is pleasant since there are biking circuits round the lake. Many nice and beautiful valleys to visit. Contacts with the owners went quick and pleasant. We recommend this exchange address!”
“We have spent a lovely holiday in Werner's apartment in Minusio, Locarno. Ticino is awesome: its beautifulness, the mountains, rivers, towns and villages, and of course the lake maggiore and surroundings. We have enjoyed the aperol spritz watching the seafront of Ascona, the cinema festival of Locarno, the cheese with polenta, the wine... Everything so pretty, so clean, so elegant. You have plenty of differents things to do: some village sightseeing, shopping or cultural visits. Also, you can enjoy swimming in the lake or the rivers (I strongly advise the beach at ponte brollo) or even a not-too-cold swim under a waterfall, taking a nice stroll throught the Woods or climbing some mountain. The appartmente is cosy, extremely clean and well organized, near everything and with a nice feeling of being cuddled by trees. Werner was really helpful and I must say he is a very good planner. ”
“We enjoyed our stay in Locarno. The apartment is very nice, modern, clean and practical with a beautiful terrace with garden view. Our hospitable exchange partners arranged everything for us to get in the apartment without any problems and provided us with useful information. The location is very good next to the stunning lake and the town center. A great starting point for various trips! Furthermore, we had an email exchange in advance to make our stay comfortable. If you want to visit Locarno and its surroundings and to have an excellent exchange, we strongly recommend this exchange partner!”
“Locarno offers something for everybody and this apartment is only a short walk from the promenade along the Lago Maggiore. You can easily get around by foot or catch trains and buses. And after a day of hiking the beautiful valleys or shopping at the it alien markets nearby you can have a quick swim in the indoor pool. A great place to spend a holiday and the hosts were very welcoming. Enjoy!”
“This apartment in Locarno is well equipped, close to everything (shops, the lake, Italy is also only 10 kms away) and very quiet. This family made everything easy for us and they left our Paris apartment in an impeccable condition. Recommended wholeheartedly!”
Where is it?
Our second home in the subtropical southern part of Switzerland with its mild climate is near the lake. The bathroom and the second bedroom have been refurbished recently. Milano is two hours away and the Mediterranean Sea is not far. Locarno is well-known for its yearly Film Festival and is one of major tourist resorts in Switzerland. There are plenty of outdoor activities and sightseeing possibilities. The beach is a short walk away and to the Piazza Grande it is a walk of fiftheen minutes. Bungee jumping (James Bond Movie) is nearby in the Verzasca Valley. The famous italian markets can easily be visited by boat. Day trips to other parts of Switzerland are within reach. Switzerland has a very good public transport system.
