Locarno villa description

The luxurious villa of epochs from 1924 is surrounded by a garden with tropical old plants and palm trees. The majestic building has 2 large living rooms, living cum kitchen, 5 bedrooms, veranda and 2 spacious patios. The villa is located in an older residential area very near to Lago Maggiore and just 10 minutes walk away from Locarno railway station. One car parking space is available. The villa is designed inside by a spacious staircase. The main rooms are kept in gothic romantic style and are characterised by imposing ceiling heights, high quality materials and specially inlaid fine work. The house is equipped with 3 modern bathrooms/showers. The new kitchen is fully fitted with ceramic glass hob, refrigerator, freezer, microwave, dishwasher and all other kitchen needs. Rooms and living room are furnished with new furniture including a flat screen television.

Secret tips for trips and shoppers: Apart from many options for day trips around Lago Maggiore there are other trips which are worth recommending: The picturesque Maggiatal valley waits for you with attractive pebble beaches by the riverside, enchanting villages with stone houses and countless number of hiking trails. The Verzasca valley is popular for the gorged stone riverbed, which invites for numerous weekends for sunbathing. The district of Bellinzona with its medieval fortifications belongs to the Unesco World Heritage Site. Locarno is the ideal starting point for various shopping tours. Apart from many shops in Locarno there is Ascona with its famous beach promenade and numerous boutiques and art galleries just 5 minutes from villa Locarno. With a 30-minute drive by car you can get to the shopping paradise of Lugano or to the legendary market of Luino on the opposite side of the lake. A one-hour drive leads in to the northern Italian fashion metropolis of Milan.

Travel information: The villa Locarno is easily reachable with the public transport: The nearby Lugano airport (35min) and Milan Malpensa (90min). The Locarno railway station with its frequent train connectivity to Zurich and Lugano is just 10 minutes walk away from villa. The parking spaces available outside make even travelling with a private car easy. **For you 2010**
