Art Hotel Riposo is a 30 room boutique hotel in the village of Ascona, Switzerland's lowest lying town, on the north-western shore of Lake Maggiore in Ticino. Sitting right next to the lake this Chic Retreat offers beautiful views from every room.
The roof terrace has a heated pool and is a real sun trap during the summer months. If guests are wanting to come and stay during the Ascona Jazz Festival, advance booking is a must.
The panoramic roof terrace hides a lovely heated swimming pool which enjoys breathtaking views across the lake. The pool is surrounded by natural rocks to created a calm a scenic atmosphere. An afternoon sat up there taking in the view or relaxing with a good book would not be wasted!
Ascona is located on the shore of Lake Maggiore and is famous for the Ascona Jazz Festival which takes place every year. Ascona and its neighbouring town of Locarno are home to plenty of museums and galleries, as well as historical churches.
This hotel is shaped by art, with contemporary and colourful paintings and pictures dotted around the building. It is well worth taking the time to wander around and seeing the various ceramics and artwork. Art takes many forms, which is why a live jazz band, Olivia and the Funcats, play every Saturday night.
A delicious breakfast of local specialities, including Swiss cheese from Ticino, Italian salami, local ham, organic breads and muesli is served in the inner courtyard. You can also tuck into your breakfast on the roof terrave, where you can admire the sweeping lake and mountain views.
The restauarant 'Cortile dei Beati' serves a wonderful array of traditional Mediterranean and Piemontese dishes. It is open everyday for lunch, as well as on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings. They also have an extensive wine list at the bar.
