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.

During their boat trip on the lake visitors will stop by the bigger of the two Brissago islands; Grande Isola. There is much to see here, the most amusing of which are the botanical gardens.

On the smaller island, Isola Piccola, tourists will find plenty of indigenous plant species preserved carefully.

Great convenient place!

5 of 5
The apartment has everything you could need. It was very clean and was so convenient with parking right out front and the access on the ground floor. Bed was very comfortable and the apartment was very child friendly with our 2 little ones. We will definitely stay again!

Lovely apartment with a fantastic view

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in Minusio. The apartment was very clean, very well kitted out with everything we needed. The balcony is excellent , with a superb view. It's easy to get into Locarno and Ascona and an easy drive into Italy, as well as the beautiful valleys. We also walked into the centre of Locarno on several occasions , it's a nice walk down to the lake and round to the restaurants. You do need to be quite fit to get back up the hill afterwards Patrick, the owner, was excellent too and very helpful with all the information he provided us. We would love to return again one day.
