Via Segnale 10, Ascona, Ticino, 6612, Switzerland
The Great Gatsby would feel in his element in this Relais & Châteaux property that's as glamorous as a Mediterranean villa but still fabulously modern. The luxury borders on decadence: the sheets are pure linen, ground-floor rooms have private gardens, and there's a landscaped pool area. The restaurants are excellent too.Aphrodite serves modern Italian and vegetarian cuisine that rates among the best in Switzerland. Restaurant Ecco surprises with so-called "molecular" cuisine, which attempts to find new ways of cooking based on scientific experimentation. The results are often delicious.
