Ascona – Soak up some Swiss sunshine on the shores of Lake Maggiore

“In winter, Ticino shows its unusually quiet and idyllic side. Only a few tourists are still around. It’s the ideal time to explore the glorious nature of the region without disruptions. Ride the cable railway to Cardada Cimetta and enjoy a spectacular view of the lake, either on a hike or, for those who want to, on skis. There is a small ski area up there.”

Tina Gerlach Resort Manager Ascona

Dolce vita under Swiss palm trees, relaxation in an exclusive ambience. Holidays at the Hapimag Resort Ascona give you the time and freedom to enjoy wellness, art and culture. Many intellectuals and artists have found new inspiration and creativity in this small Ticino town situated between Monte Verità and Lake Maggiore.

Stroll under the palm trees along the promenade of Lake Maggiore, enjoying the mild climate of Switzerland's sunniest area. This is what holidays in Ascona are all about. Thread your way through a network of winding alleyways and peruse noble boutiques and small art galleries. The cultural highlights of the area include the Ascona Jazz Festival and the famous Locarno Film Festival in the neighbouring town. The scenery by the port is majestic. The lake is as smooth as glass and the boats rest calmly in the marina, their masts barely moving in the gentle wind while the sun slowly rises in the background and bathes the surrounding mountains in its soft light. The narrow mountain valleys contain sleepy and captivating villages and taverns, waiting for you to discover them and try out the local specialities like risotto or polenta. Hike through impressive gorges, swim in the secluded bathing bays on the River Maggia, head out onto Lake Maggiore by boat. There is a Leisure Consultant in the high season on site to help guests organise their individual excursions. A visit to Brissago Island is an impressive experience and the scent of the blossoming flowers in the botanical garden is unforgettable. After a fulfilling day, you will find everything that you need for the perfect holidays at the Hapimag Resort Ascona. The individual buildings are grouped around a large, covered swimming pool. The range of wellness offerings includes massages and therapies such as the Feldenkrais method, Shiatsu or other therapies based on colour, light and sound. The wellness area promises relaxation in the sauna, the sanarium, the steam and Kneipp bath or in the relaxation room. A children's room is also available. The cuisine of Ticino is also famous and well-loved. In the resort's own restaurant 'Osteria Grotto Villa Saleggi', you can enjoy the cuisine of Ticino with fine wines from the wine cellar. Holidays in the Hapimag Resort Ascona are also a voyage of culinary discovery.
