A blissful Locarno setting with fantastic views of Lake Maggiore and the Alps

Unique Qualities

  • An array of exciting activities, from nearby ski slopes to a blissful spa

The hotel in detail

There is nothing quite like sitting by the pool on a sun lounger overlooking Lake Maggiore and the delightful town of Locarno. A stay at Villa Orselina provides not just dreamy views but a gourmet restaurant, a pampering spa plus stunning lake and mountain views from every room in the hotel.

During summer, there is a succinctly Mediterranean feel in this delightful corner of Switzerland while in winter you are just minutes away from the ski slopes. The atmosphere at Villa Orselina reflects this relaxed holiday feeling with its stunning views and vast range of sights and activities on the doorstep. Ensure you book a spa treatment and arrive early to make the most of the sauna and indoor pool, then relax with an invigorating massage and soothing body wrap.

Take the cable car to Cardada/Cimetta for more amazing panoramic views, or a boat ride on the lake to the Brissago Islands. Head into Locarno to Piazza Grande, famous for its frequent concerts, film festival and markets, followed by a romantic evening stroll along the lake promenade. After a day of sightseeing, the Grand Bar at Villa Orselina is the place to be, sitting on the terrace watching the twinkling lights of Locarno and their shimmering reflections on the lake.
