For example, treat yourself to a couple's wellness day at one of the region’s cosy spas, a stroll along the lake or a tour of local museums. Pampered by the water of the 34°C thermal pools, with relaxing massages, walks arm in arm and stunning works of art, your romantic getaway will become a real cure-all for your soul, body and relationship. If retail therapy is your stress relief, how about a day of shopping rounded off with a Michelin-starred dinner in the centre of Ascona?
Perhaps you're a more active couple... The Ascona-Locarno region boasts its lake surrounded by mountains, soaring peaks with breath-taking views, 1,400 km of hiking trails and two official mountain bike routes to explore together, as well as plenty of extreme sports to try out, such as James Bond-style bungee jumping if you need an adrenaline rush to really enjoy yourself. Talking of sports activities... at this time of year alpine lakes make the perfect backdrop for hikers with a romantic soul...and perhaps even for a marriage proposal!
