August 1996, 1 week

Review

This apartment was booked through Europa-Let which I think has become Drawbridge to Europe. We booked Casa Sonja, Sentiero Costadritta 1, Locarno This was a beautiful apartment on the ground floor of a private house. It was 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, no phone, had a private yard with a view down into Locarno. Good kitchen. Comfortable furniture. Very private because you had your own yard area - the owners speak only German and live above.

We loved the apartment, but you had to climb over 200 steps from the street in Locarno up a hill to the apartment - very steep, very long climb. A car could not get closer than that. Also, the church bells, very near the apartment, rang every 15 minutes throughout the night, so you had to sleep with the bedroom window closed.

This review is the opinion of a Slow Travel member and not of slowtrav.com.
