Ascona cottages, Lake Maggiore Holiday rentals - villas & holiday homes to rent in Ascona
Ascona sits at the top end of Lake Maggiore in the Italian-speaking Swiss canton of Ticino. A beautiful lakeside resort with scenic walking trails into the mountains that surround the lake.
Being just 4km away from Locarno, the sunniest place in Switzerland, Ascona is also blessed with a Mediterranean climate that means palm-tree-lined promenades and sub-tropical flowers. Sitting in the sun in one of the many lakeside bustling cafes is a great way to pass the time.
