Dolce Vita at the Lago Maggiore

Lots of Dolce Vita awaits you here!

The Ascona-Locarno region is a unique area where the Alpine and Mediterranean worlds meet. An oasis of tranquillity, nestled between the Lago Maggiore and the mountains, criss-crossed by fairytale valleys that have always attracted intellectuals, romantics and adventurers, but also world-famous lakeside resorts hosting events of international renown. It is the perfect region to rediscover your love of nature, recharge your batteries, renew your strength and simply feel good. A sense of well-being that arises from exercise out in nature, gastronomy emphasising local products, wonderful moments as a family and, above all, lush, unspoilt wildlife.

Dolce Vita at the Lago Maggiore

"A lake embraced by mountains, valleys with fairytale landscapes and bustling holiday resorts right on the waterfront. It sounds like a cliché, but it's really true: the Lago Maggiore region with its valleys has something to offer for everyone. It is diverse, colourful and multi-faceted, just like the Dolce Vita I like. Everyone has their own idea of what it means to enjoy life: Some like to lie out by the lake with a cool drink in hand and soak up the sun, others seek the challenge on two wheels taking them to mind-blowing places, and for some it's both. No matter which category you fall into, there’s some Dolce Vita for everyone, because this region is simply unique. Whether for hiking, water sports, cultural experiences, relaxation or great evening events: This is the place I always like to return to, to relax, to soak up some sun and energy and simply to have fun. This is my own personal Dolce Vita!"
