Located on the very edge of Switzerland, almost in Italy, Ascona gives you a sense of la dolce vita – but with a contemporary touch. Doing nothing is an option here, but not an obligation. The same is true of Giardino Ascona. It is a fresh, five-star design hotel that redefines recuperation on Lago Maggiore. Yoga in the morning, yachting in the evening. Pool today, paddle tomorrow. You define what recuperation means to you. Ready?
