Ascona villas, 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 great walking trails up 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.
