Activities in Ascona

Discover Ascona

Located directly on the lake, with its palm trees and typical houses painted in bright colors, this former fishing village has been transformed into a place not to be missed with Mediterranean charm.
Ascona is a real paradise and its characteristic lake promenade makes this small town on Lake Maggiore a unique jewel.

Ascona is a place rich in history, art and culture. Its privileged location and mild climate make it a popular vacation spot for cycling, discovering the valleys, practicing water sports, playing in one of the most famous 18-hole golf courses in Switzerland or spending the warm summer nights at the theater or dancing to music.

We are at your disposal to facilitate the organization of your stay. Do not hesitate to contact us !
