The only negative with this wonderful residence is the stairs. We were in the top apartment and had to climb 70 stairs from the road therefore not good for bad knees etc. The outlook from the Chalet is probably the best we have ever had anywhere in the world - a green valley soaring to snow covered peaks - and we saw a marmot on the way out in the morning - that was a bonus. The owner - Mario - is the perfect host.

"Cannot imagine a better spot in Ascona! WIL go back. Excellent price for location"
Cannot find a single negative aspect here. Great location on the waterfront that is car free, view on the lake is exceptional. Adjoining restaurant is excellent. It may still be Swiss but you are in Italy! You must walk this small town to realy see it. Cars are useless here. We stayed two days in early November 2011 and even if there was rain, we enjoyed every second. Staff speak at least four languages and has class and charm that are not made up! We were elated!
