We are a family with three children. We really enjoyed our week in Ascona. 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.
Having stayed in both apartments, I find all lovely, super clean and perfectly equipped for even a long stay. Surrounded by mature hedges and wonderfully manicured gardens, yet close to restaurants and places to relax, the house offers exactly what I wanted for a nice getaway.
