Enjoy the beauty & peace of Lago Maggiore with a stay at this romantic, cozy & charmingly furnished private studio, just 20 meters from the beach & with glorious open views of the lake and mountains.

The picturesque village of Gerra Gambarogno is only 3 kms north of the Swiss/Italian border and features cobblestoned walkways, a central church square, two lovely beaches, & a cheerful beach bar.

We can't wait to welcome you!

The space
Located fifty minutes drive from Como, ninety minutes north of Milan, and a two hour train ride from Zurich, the picturesque & quaint village of Gerra Gambarogno is just 3 kilometers north of the Swiss/Italian border and features cobblestoned walkways, an ancient church, two welcoming beaches, a cheerful beach bar with delicious bites and cocktails, and public grilling area - all within steps of the studio.

The charming tourist destinations of Ascona & Locarno are located directly across the lake and a 25 minute drive away. The famous Sunday Italian market in Cannobio can be reached by either a 50 minute drive around the top of the lake or by ferry from our neighboring town of Maccagno, Italy (15 min. drive).

Nearby services also include a train station, bus stop and small local grocery store (all less than 2 minutes walk from the studio). A variety of dining options can be found in neighboring villages, some in the local region and others just down the road in Italy (the Italian border is just 2 kilometers from Gerra).

This romantic, charming & welcoming property with its stunning views of Lago Maggiore, magnificent sunsets and amazing stars on a clear night will not disappoint. Casetta Barbara is the perfect destination for a romantic get-away for two or a relaxing retreat for friends.

With Lago Maggiore right at your fingertips, you can easily spend your days paddling, swimming, enjoying the ferry services (ferry stop located in neighboring village of San Nazzaro, 20 min. walk), sightseeing in Ticino or simply dozing and reading on the beach. If you are a fan of more active pursuits, there are endless mountain trails for hiking in every direction and the main road along the perimeter of Lago Maggiore is a favorite for cyclists of all levels.

This charming private studio is beautifully furnished, 'small but sweet', offers numerous amenities and is located on the upper portion of the property host’s garage, where natural light and a comfortable floor plan create a cozy and welcoming environment. An entire wall of French windows offers spectacular south-facing views of the lake and mountains. The covered balcony features a dining corner and two comfy deck chairs for balcony lounging.

At about 25 square meters, the cleverly designed studio offers a cozy seating area with views of the lake, fully stocked kitchenette with dining bar, and comfortably outfitted queen-sized bed. All linens, towels (including extra towels for your beach use) and hi-quality toiletries are included. The bathroom offers a walk-in shower. A mini- fridge is available to keep beverages and essentials nice and cool.

Paid public parking is available in the immediate area. It is recommended that our guests download and apply for the Swiss parking payment app called Parkingpay.

*NOTE* Please note that the obligatory Ticino Tourism Tax of CHF 3.25/adult/day is not included in the nightly rate is kindly requested to be collected after arrival. Aside from this item there are no additional fees or taxes of any kind.

This lovely rental has everything you need for a relaxing lakeside retreat and our goal is to provide you with your most relaxing and comfortable holiday experience ever. We live just around the corner and will be welcoming you in person and will remain available for any needs you might have during your stay.

We look forward to welcoming you this summer to Lago Maggiore!

Hello...and greetings from lovely Lago Maggiore! My husband and I have been living in Ticino, Switzerland on the shores of Lago Maggiore since 2002. After all this time we remain in awe of the area's spectacular beauty, charm and culture. I am American and a former resident of the Bay Area in California where I served as a Captain in the US Army followed by several years working in the wine industry for Robert Mondavi Winery. My passions are wine, food and travel and we are fortunate to be surrounded by all of these wonderful things here in southern Switzerland. My husband is Dutch and has been coming to Lago Maggiore for summer vacations since he was a child. Since 2002 we have been happy to make our home here and even happier to open the doors of our guest homes to visitors who are eager to discover all the treasures that this special location has to offer, the perfect blend of Italy and Switzerland and the best of both worlds. We look forward to welcoming you to Ticino and to helping you enjoy an unforgettable vacation experience. Wishing you happy and safe travels...Buon Viaggio!
