The meticulously kept gardens are a delight to stroll through.
Just outside a small lakeside village, the ivy-covered HOTEL Giardino in Ascona warmly welcomes visitors. Here, you can wander through gorgeous gardens filled with modern art sculptures, lily pads, and fountains.
Inspired by the outdoors? Ask the concierge for a bike, so you can cycle through the valleys around Locarno. And don't leave without playing a round at the 18-hole Golf Club Patriziale Ascona, one of the most beautiful courses in Europe.
At DIPIÙ SPA BY GIARDINO, the beautifully designed spa and beauty center, relax in the classical sauna that integrates light therapy. Or take a emerald steam bath or herbal sauna with sauna oils.
Gourmet dining is a must at 2 Michelin stars RISTORANTE ECCO or dine on the Ristorante Aphrodite's covered terrace. Still hungry at midnight? Have a complimentary midnight meal at the bar - an ideal end to an ideal day.
