Getting a holiday rental in Ticino is not easy because it’s the region with the most Mediterranean climate in Switzerland. Lake Maggiore and Lake Lugano are a magnet for the Swiss and Central Europeans, who can enjoy an almost tropical climate in summer just a few kilometers from the Alps.
Ticino is the perfect mix of beach and mountain holidays, thanks to its lakes with sandy beaches and grass and the valleys above Locarno, such as Verzasca, Maggia, Leventina or Centovalli.
The ideal is to settle in a village on Lake Maggiore or Lake Lugano, such as Minusio, Ascona or Morcote, and drive from there through the deepest and most traditional Ticino. The highlight of the day is a swim in the lake or in the pool if your apartment has one.
At Swissferien we have made a selection of the best holiday homes in Ticino, some with pool and all with unforgettable views of Lake Maggiore or Lake Lugano.
These are accommodations designed for a dream holiday, with gardens, panoramic terraces, deck chairs and barbecues and lush vegetation.
The holiday flats are managed by the Swiss company Interhome, a benchmark for quality and excellent service. In addition, for all bookings made until 31 March 2021, there is the possibility of free cancellation up to one month before the date of arrival. Interhome is adapting to the times of the pandemic and is thinking first and foremost of the end customer. Another proof of their exceptional customer service.
Near Ascona lies Brissago, famous for having two islands in front of it. The Maganou holiday home is an impressive villa with 5 rooms and two bedrooms, divided over 3 levels, with a large garden and an exceptional view of Lake Maggiore.
One of the biggest attractions is the panoramic view of the mountains and the lake, because not only the garden, but also the rooms and the living room have an impressive view.
The days of relaxation at Maganou will be unforgettable thanks to the tropical environment, the deckchairs, the barbecue and the lawn and the palm trees.
And the best thing is that you don’t have to take the car to get there and swim in the lake, as it is only 500 metres from the villa.
