A Mediterranean flair

My favorite leisure destination in Switzerland, with a southern flair.


Walking in the old town of Ascona, hiking, biking, on the lake, on the golf courses and in the thermal baths – the Ascona-Locarno region is adventurous and relaxing.


Termali Salini Spa

Only a 20 minutes drive away is the largest natural thermal spa in Ticino.

A Mediterranean atmosphere of tranquility, warmth and well-being awaits you.

For guests of our partner hotel in Ascona, Albergo Carcani, packages are available at a special price.

Beautiful spot Super location, right on the water.Great service, room inside and outside. We only went for coffee, but it was pretty clear this place is really well run and has a pretty decent menu.

Smaakvol en fantastisch uitzicht Gisteren hier gelunchd. De locatie is schitterend het eten heerlijk en de bediening top. Vriendelijk, gezellig, geïnterresseerd. Het restaurant is prijzig maar het eten is zeer smaakvol. Er staan verrassende gerechten op het menu. Zo hadden wij als voorgerecht gazpacho van mango met sardientjes. Heeeerlijk en ik zou het zelf niet kunnen bedenken. Ook de witte huiswijn was erg lekker.
So gefällts uns Schönes Restaurant an der Promenade von Brissago. Kleine Karte aber sehr gute Mischung Fisch und Fleisch.Erwähnenswert ist das am Tisch flambierte Risotto mit Riesencrevetten.
