Property description

Enjoy the best of Italian culture and cuisine within the efficiency and cleanliness of Switzerland in the 'Italian Lakes Region.' My newly remodeled vacation apartment is perched across breathtaking Lago Maggiore from Locarno and Ascona and amidst soaring Alpine peaks and palm trees. Every room has a staggering view.

The lake is less than a ten minute walk. There one can find a public beach and ferry across the lake to Locarno and Ascona. The Italian border is less than a ten minute drive away.

About Ticino: Ticino is a hybrid of the best of Southern and Northern Europe. Amidst the palms, Alpine peaks, and deep blue lakes, you'll find the best of Mediterranean Europe: a laid back atmosphere with Italian cuisine, climate, architecture, and language. From Northern Europe you'll notice the cleanliness, efficiency, and infrastructure that allow you to relax.

Lago Maggiore is an ideal place to get away from it all. Some prefer to just relax on the balcony with a glass of wine and soak in the view. Others enjoy the myriad activities from hiking, swimming, biking, boating, water-skiing, horseback riding, to hang-gliding, skiing, and paragliding.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Mark and Vikas have been friends for over 20 years and have been coming to Ticino for nearly as long.

Why the Owner Chose San Nazzaro:
Together we have travelled to over 60 countries and we find Ticino to be the most spectacular, comfortable, and inviting place on Earth. The combination of Northern European efficiency and Mediterranean joie de vivre is impossible to beat. Even though in the center of Europe and just 90 minutes from Milan, Ticino still feels light years removed from it all.
