Giardino Ascona Hotel, Ascona
The name says it all, for the 5-star luxury hotel "Giardino" is a retreat in the middle of southern parklands and immediately next to the 18-hole golf course "Patriziale Ascona." The Mediterranean garden – with its picturesque lilly pad pond, countless lavender bushes, mimosa, citrus and olive trees, is at the centre of things, serving both as event in its own right and as a peaceful sanctuary. Pools, bars, day beds, lounges and deckchairs complement the scene, encouraging guests to kick back and dream. The hotel has more than 52 double rooms and 20 suites, all furnished in warm Mediterranean hues. But the "Giardino's" greatest asset is its originality and uniqueness – this hotel definitely breaks the mould. An enchanting garden to take a break from reality. Ideal for individualists, golfers, and families with children.

The Mediterranean garden with its picturesque lily pad pond and the lavish spa offer plenty of room to regain your inner peace and balance.

The one thing missing to make this the perfect holiday is a view of the lake.
