Didn’t know what to expect but what an amazing experience . Hundreds of different plant and tree species that I never thought I’d see in la Suisse of all places . Truly a botanical wonderland . There’s even a hotel and restaurant onsite . The day we went, there was a wedding taking place . Can get there from Locarno and Ascona by boat.

the most tropical place in Ticino. I suggest to have your bathsuite with you in case you get a chance to relax at the island shores. I saw a few kids enjoying the waters and the shore so why not. you can also take your own food and drinks and have a lovely picnic in the park. the island is very small but have variaties of landscapes. you can have a lovely coffee or lunch at the nice restaurant, you can have your own picnic at the park, you can have a short walk in the bamboo "forest", stay a bit by the shore and of course have a lot of photos.

Beautiful place for a scenic walk and nice lunch, but beware that a trip to the island means you will need to be prepared to stay for a lot least 3 hours given ferry timetable. Whilst providing a beautiful walk, you will not be able to swim in the lake from here so a 3 hour visit can seem long

Really not sure why such high reviews The first ferry from Brissago is 1150 M and then returns at 315 (20 franks ) One would expect a lot to see given the suggested time to visit is 3 hours If you like plants fine but not many flowers nothing at all to do except pay for lunch again another 25 franks for a mouthful of food and that’s it wait for the ferry.. Not worth it and can’t even see inside villa Total waste of time

Everything here is just sublime. Service is state of the art with incredible attention. Bedrooms are minimalist and this is the concept, no need for luxury, the luxe is outside and surrounds you everywhere you touch with your eyes. The private beach is a must.
