“A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in – what more could he ask?” contemplated Victor Hugo in Les Misérables. This villa-esque resort situated between Ascona and Locarno is draped in Mediterranean-styled gardens, immaculately kept. So what more could we ask? An outdoor pool for al fresco lounging would be delightful. And we certainly wouldn't complain about a two Michelin-starred restaurant on-site. And free bikes to explore the nearby lake plus surrounding sites would be splendid indeed thank you. All these boxes are ticked.
