Located in Vira, 984 feet from a beach of Lake Maggiore, Corte delle Camelie is set in a historic building and provides air-conditioned apartments with a fireplace, underfloor heating and free WiFi. Nicolas is a fabulous host! Any questions we had, he and his wife were available to answer promptly. The property is absolutely stunning! We’ll definitely return.
Ristorante La Riva is located in Vira, right on the shore of Lake Maggiore and 9.3 mi away from Locarno. It features a restaurant with a terrace and provides free WiFi in all areas. Great location with its own little beach and a beautiful terrace overlooking the garden with amazing sunset views The staff is simply great - always smiling and ready to help with anything (grazie Filippo) The food is excellent and decently priced, the rooms and the shared bathrooms are sparkling clean
Located in Vira in the Canton of Ticino region, Garden On The Lake features a garden. The property is 21 mi from Lugano, and complimentary private parking is provided. Firstly the location and check in instructions were excellent. The flat is big and spacious and has a gorgeous view overlooking the lake. Perhaps a small table and chairs for the balcony would have made it ideal for supper. The beds are big and comfortable and the flat was clean but the decor is a little dated There are a few little things though. There is a TV which didn’t work (no cables) but wi-fi is fast and included. The bathroom is massive but has no shower curtain. We had a dishwasher tablet but couldn’t find the dishwasher and perhaps more blue bin bags. The beach is indeed private and just over the road but the grass was overgrown and there is nowhere to sit. It is still a wonderful place for the family and didn’t detract from our stay and the value for money was excellent. Just a few tweaks and it would be even better.
The nearest bigger grocery store (like Coop/Migros) is about 9 km away. There are a lot of small restaurants in the village though. Vira offers a great view on the Lago Maggiore and the surrounding Alps.
The small town of Vira is quiet and quaint. No crowds like in Locarno or Ascona on the opposite shore of the Lago Maggiore. Still, these towns are reachable in less than 20 minutes by car. Public transportation is also available for free, if staying in a hotel in Vira. Buses run up and down the steep mountain roads to remote villages. Favorite place was Valle Verzasca up from Verzasca dam across from Vira. We had dinner multiple times at La Riva Restaurant and liked it a lot.
