Ascona – Switzerland


Situated on Monte Verità hillside, (Mountain of Truth) overlooking Lake Maggiore and surrounding mountains is Hotel Ascona. It’s a great location if you plan to visit the charming town of Ascona which is Switzerland’s lowest lying town at 196 meters (643 ft) above sea level.

During summer holidays if you haven’t booked a hotel in advance it’s unlikely to find decent accommodation anywhere. I’m not the type who likes to plan a vacation so far ahead! I also don’t like overcrowded destinations – so during this period, I enjoy the beautiful city of Zurich and its surroundings.

I spent a few days in Ascona where I was lucky enough to find a hotel that was not overly expensive for this time of year. The rooms are comfortable and it offers a generous breakfast buffet. You can enjoy the spa or pool area – or just lounge in the lush green garden while enjoying the beautiful view, of Lake Maggiore and the surrounding mountains.

Bikini is from Beldona.

    Hey Yvonne, I’ve been away from the blogosphere for a while and back for a wee bit, and catching up on my reading! Such a picturesque hotel and what a view! Also looks like you chose the right time of year, nothing more to put you off your summer chillaxing groove than an over crowded hotel. Cute bikini too! ( :

      Hi Nancy, Switzerland is a very beautiful country and a fantastic holiday destination. You are spoilt for choices – here and as you prefer summer the Italian part of Switzerland would be perfect for you. I hope you get the chance to visit as it’s only an eight-hour drive which is good for you as you don’t fly.
