Piazza Motta, Ascona, Ticino, 6612, Switzerland
Dating from 1250, this hotel oozes romance—that doesn't even take into account its garden setting and enviable address across from the waterfront. Its interior is rich with frescoes, wood beams, and heavy masonry, lightened with a contemporary touch. Each room is different: there's a wrought-iron bed in the back tower, a blue wooden canopy bed in Room 205, and a lavish front tower room with a loft. A private courtyard is perfect for summertime dining, or you can just take a dip in the isolated pool.
- lakeside rooms have original details
- deluxe tower rooms start not much higher than standard doubles
- the tower loft can be reached only by spiral staircase
