This beautiful, bright and luxurious Ascona home, an easy and pleasant walk to the center of town, offers magnificent views of the surrounding mountains from every room, a glimpse of Lago Maggiore at the end of the street, overlooks the first hole of one of Switzerland's most beautiful golf courses and is only a half block from the pristine local beach. A relaxed 10 -15 minute stroll through a beautiful and quiet residential neighborhood brings you to the heart of Ascona and its historic lakefront piazza lined with both cozy trattorias and fine dining restaurants. The charming cobblestoned streets of Ascona’s center are car-free and filled with a rich collection of cafes, boutiques and galleries.
This warm and welcoming 2-bedroom/2-bathroom apartment is situated on the penthouse floor of a 4-story building and provides total privacy and quiet. The expansive wrap-around terrace offers sunshine all day long, an outdoor shower and space to relax, dine and enjoy the fabulous views. A keyed elevator opens to your own private landing. Providing the amenities of a 5-star hotel as well as all the comforts of your own home, this is one of the loveliest vacation rentals available in Ticino.
Here are just some of the many amenities offered to our guests: private parking space, high speed Wi-Fi throughout the apartment, designer furnishings, information booklet packed with helpful maps & current dining and sightseeing recommendations, fully-stocked kitchen with all new modern appliances, Nespresso machine, luxury linens, spa-quality bathrobes, soaps, shampoos & lotions, supply of extra toiletries (in case you forgot your toothbrush!), cable tv, beach towels & chairs, outdoor shower and many more items to ensure that your holiday is care-free and comfortable.
We spent 6 days in this wonderful penthouse. It is even more beautiful than on the pictures. All the rooms are very comfortable and so are all the furniture on the terrace, the bathroom are filled with shampoo, conditioner, lotion and more. You will find everything you need to cook and serve a fancy dinner and finish with a Nespresso... what else could you wish for ?! The location is perfect for walking to the lake or into town and there are so many places to visit on a day trip. We enjoyed Ronco, Corripo, Lugano, Bellinzona and more. And to make our stay perfect Lisa and Frits were the best hosts, they made sure we had everything we needed and we felt very welcome.
We hope to be back some day. Thanks Lisa !
This exquisite penthouse apartment was true to the fantastic pictures and description in the listing. On top of that, our host, Lisa, offered a warm and very supportive welcome and made certain we had absolutely everything we needed for our stay. While the property is only a few blocks from the beach and golf and a few more blocks from Ascona's center, we found ourselves more than happy to spend several lazy mornings at the apartment, enjoying the view of the mountains and the comfort of our surroundings. Lisa made many great recommendations for restaurants and day trips. She also made available to us beach chairs, beach towels and a washer and dryer in addition to a host of other amenities that made for a great stay. If only every rental were this comfortable, beautiful, convenient and came with such a great host!
If you are reading this then you are already close to having an amazing experience in Ascona. Look no further - Lisa's luxury penthouse is simply fabulous. Gorgeously furnished with impeccable taste, this apartment is truly wonderful. Lisa has the knack of making you feel special from the moment she meets you. The wrap around balcony with views over the mountains and even a glimpse of the lake is heavenly. Sipping a chilled glass of sauvignon blanc on the terrace just after we arrived, we congratulated ourselves on finding such a special place, so different from the anonymity of a hotel room.
This was our introduction to vacation rentals and it will be a hard act to follow.
Thanks so much Lisa - we will definitely be back.
Having visited many different destinations in Europe over the years, all of them special and memorable in their own way, I have to say that our week at this lovely apartment, in this charming town of Ascona, was the best experience we’ve had by far.
The apartment is a dream. Spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished, wonderful views and thoughtfully equipped with every amenity you might need. We can’t say enough good things about the quality and comfort of this home.
The owner, Lisa, went above and beyond to make sure that we were happy and comfortable. She is great to communicate with, clearly cares about her guests and their overall experience and is committed to anticipating every need and responding to every question with enthusiasm and professionalism. Honestly, every luxury hotel could learn from her example.
Last but not least, the location is ideal - everything is close by yet the apartment is on pretty neighborhood street just a half block from Ascona’s private beach (another great amenity: Lisa provides her guests with her own “locals’ pass” so entrance to the beach is free) Ascona’s beautiful lakefront boulevard with all its quaint trattorias and many other charms is only a 15 minute walk along a lovely pathway. Ascona is heaven for foodies with several world-class restaurants - if you are celebrating a special occasion we must encourage you to try the incredibly romantic outdoor restaurant ‘Cortile Leone’ at The Hotel Castello del Sole - Lisa recommended this enchanted spot and its excellent sommelier, Mario, and she did not steer us wrong - one of our best meals ever.
We are a couple in our 40’s and even though it was just the two of us this apartment is an exceptional value. We loved our time here and can’t wait to return someday. We highly recommend this exceptional property!
My wife and I were in town for a golf tournament and we feel very fortunate to have discovered this fabulous Ascona apartment. We cannot praise it enough - it was extremely comfortable, light & spacious, full of top-quality/luxury furnishings and very clean. Also amazingly private as you are the only residents occupying the entire top floor - this is a true penthouse with keyed elevator and rooftop terrace. We invited golf friends over for a drink one evening (thank you Lisa for the delicious champagne!) and they were impressed and envious of our luxury accommodations.
We all agreed that this rental was an excellent value considering the high level of quality, comfort, hospitality (Lisa was the most welcoming and thoughtful host we've come across) and the prime location next to the golf course and beach, not to mention walking distance to the center (no car needed for everything Ascona offers). Many local hotel rooms demand a much higher nightly rate and can't come close to what you get here - this must be the best deal in Switzerland...
We will be recommending this marvelous apartment to all of our friends and colleagues and we genuinely look forward to returning ourselves many times in the future, and hopefully improving our golf handicap with each visit!
My husband and I were here at the lovely "Penthouse San Cristoforo" for just a weekend and we wished that we could have stayed longer - we enjoyed the experience immensely, from start to finish.
The apartment is absolutely lovely - beautifully appointed, sparkling clean, and oh so comfortable. There is a wonderful spacious feeling to the home with its open floor plan, endless windows and grand terrace. The owner Lisa provided so many delightful 'extra's' that we needed for nothing and felt quite spoiled - her attention to our needs and her warm hospitality was truly exceptional.
We adore Ascona and are already planning our next visit so that we can enjoy this very special property yet again. We encourage you to try it yourself - you will not be disappointed!
Very highly recommended...
