Ascona a rendezvous for the creative

The former fishing village of Ascona sits on the sunny
bay of Lago Maggiore. Its lakeside promenade
lined with patrician houses and arcades is one of the
loveliest strolls along the lake, its gentle climate
and sub-tropical vegetation unique.
Ascona has always been exceptional. Artists and
intellectuals from all corners of the world mingled on
Monte Verità. Ascona is still today an exclusive
gathering place for the creative – and home to some
of the most renowned hotels in Switzerland.
