Make a holiday rental, home, or cottage in Brissago, Switzerland your home away from home

Brissago is essentially the western shore of Lake Maggiore plus a pair of islands found in the massive water body which stretches from Switzerland into Italy. It is a wonderful place to visit not least because Brissago is not exactly your typical world-renowned resort with masses of camera-wielding tourists. But those who make this Swiss municipality their destination of choice will want to take as many photos as they can, so beautiful is the place. It boasts botanical gardens bursting with diverse plant species as well as a number of forests. There are also a number of historical monuments in the town. For accommodation visitors can look forward to nights in apartments with brilliant views or in beautiful holiday homes.

Things to do on holiday to Brissago, Switzerland

A boat ride on Lake Maggiore is a natural choice for most visitors to this hidden Swiss paradise. Those who thought they had to go to an exotic Spanish or Greek location to see sub-tropical vegetation will be surprised to find it in plenty in Brissago. A hike through the lush green islands of Brissago will reveal a plethora of plant species usually associated with warm coastal locales like palm trees and bamboos. And apart from abundant flora, these islands boast quite a number of wildlife species including many exotic birds. This unique spectacle of sub-tropical plant life in a country more known for its high mountains and chilly weather is made possible by the Alps which prevent cold air from reaching the lake. The perfect warm conditions are thus created for these plants to thrive.

Eating out has never been as fun or as interesting as when dining at Brissago?s restaurants. Establishments like Osteria Al Giardinetto serve up Mediterranean cuisine as visitors are sure never to have tasted it before. On top of that the general ambiance of the place is enchanting, inviting patrons to relax and enjoy themselves. The service, according to previous guests, is nothing short of top notch.

The apartment has everything you need for a holiday. It has 3 bedrooms (1 double, 1 twin, 1 small room with bunk beds). The living room is comfortable and the balcony was very nice with lovely views to the mountains, with a nice pool. The apartment is situated in a very nice area with Ascona promenade about 15 minute walk away. Ascona is absolutely beautiful with spectacular lake views. We visited the private Ascona Lido which was really lovely with a very nice beach area with activites for children. We also visited Locarno Lido which has a great pool area and was also good fun for both children and adults (10 minute drive). The only thing to consider is that Switzerland is expensive for eating out! We would also recommend visiting the very pretty Italian town of Cannobio which is only 7 miles away which also has a nice area by the beach, and the town of Stresa is also worth a visit.
