The crystal waters of Lake Maggiore sparkle before guests as they approach the Villa Orselina, a luxury hotel overlooking this Alpine paradise.

28 luxurious, modern rooms sit perched above the city of Locarno. Simple and elegant in design, they are characterised by a crisp white colour scheme and most come with a balcony from which to drink in the sweeping lake views.

Il Ristorante di Villa Orselina offers delicious Mediterranean cuisine inspired by neighbouring Italy. La Pergola is idyllically set among lush subtropical gardens while the Panorama lounge and bar with its grand fireplace and views of the mountains is the perfect place to unwind after a day exploring.

While you could easily spend your time relaxing in the spa and embracing the art of ‘dolce far niente’, there are also excellent gym facilities as well as a tennis court for those who fancy stretching their muscles. Cool off in the indoor or outdoor pool, let go in the Finnish sauna or steam bath, or enjoy a relaxing treatment. There’s also a handful of scenic golf courses in the area and mountain bikes to borrow.
