Where to Stay

Hotels and B&Bs to check out

TIP: stay within Ascona Village to be able to reach everything on foot and be close to the departure & arrival point of the boat to bring you to/from Villa Emden on the Isola di Brissago. 

Vista Lakefront Boutique Hotel

Located right on the boardwalk of Ascona Village, this small boutique hotel allows you to wake up with a beautiful view over the lake in the morning. The hotel is right in the center and hence at walking distance of all the main sites (including the boat departure point to go to the wedding)!

If you like artsy & quirky, this is your hotel! The Art Hotel Riposo, is located in the heart of Ascona, and offers a stunning view over the town and the Lago Maggiore, all from your sun-bed at the pool. It is within walking distance of all the main sites, and yes also from the boat departure point to get to the wedding.

Romantik Hotel Seeschloss

If you feel like kings & queens, you might want to stay in the Romantik Hotel Seeschloss, with its traditional "Castello" room-style and beautiful courtyard. Also the Romantik Hotel Seeschloss is right at the boardwalk and hence, in walking distance of all main sites & the boat departure point to arrive at the wedding!


Once You're There

We’re excited to share a few of our favorite places in the area with you -
also check our Joint Activities place to explore these places together with us! 

Roam the Old Town

Ascona is located in an idyllic spot between the picturesque, hilly area of Monte Verità and the blue waters of Lake Maggiore. The Old Town and the lakeside promenade are particularly quaint and picture-worthy to roam around.

Explore the Maggia Valley

Follow along the Maggia river to discover multiple places to jump in the crystal blue (but cold) water, explore some of old rustic & typical villages "Ticinese", and indulge in Italian food at some of the traditional Grottos along the way. 


Sunbathe at the Lido

Located right on the lake, the Lido Ascona is the perfect place for a dip. In case you want to enjoy the summer vibes, you can head to one of the two bars: either the lounge on the terrace by the entrance or the small beach bar by the water, with its Caribbean-inspired groove and delicious cocktails.
