“Wonderful place”
Reviewed May 30, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Top apartment with terrace and a host to match, the Ascona penthouse is the best apartment we rented in Europe. Lisa is generous and kind and made our stay a special one. Perfect for families, The place us right by the beach and close to restaurants. We will be back.

“The closest you can ever get to living in a dream”
Reviewed April 5, 2017 for a stay in April 2016

I don't think there is enough space to write how much I loved this apartment. The second you walk in, you are transported to a dream. Lisa's tasteful decor makes you feel like you are in a 5 star hotel with gorgeous bedding/cozy beds and everything you would need for a perfect meal in the kitchen. There is a living room with plenty of couches to lounge on and read one many books she has in her library. But we spent most of our time sitting on the wrap around patio, which has a lounging area, and a separate dining area, which we sat at for every meal including sunrise with a cup of coffee. The views are spectacular and the temperature was perfect, so it’s hard to rip yourself away. But if you do Lisa will advise you on the perfect plans, which for us included a boat trip to a food market in Italy, where we bought lots of delicious foods and wines and took it back to our patio for daily dinners watching the sunset. I HIGHLY recommend this apartment, and promise you will feel the same way I do, counting down the days when you can return.

“Beautiful, confertable penthouse close to main areas”
Reviewed September 26, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Two mature couples from different continents that travel together occasionally had a wonderful time in this Penthouse and Tecino. We enjoyyed driving around and sightseeing so much, that we ended up eating in-house most evenings. Lisa, the owner really made us feel at home with welcoming us and giving us all the infirmation we needed for the area and spoiling us with all kinds of extras.
Only small negative is maybe the too firm matresses for mature bodies!

Thank you so much for the kind review...you were such lovely guests and it was a pleasure to have you here at the Penthouse. In response to your comments regarding the firm mattresses - thank you for the helpful feedback. We have already gone out and found plushy pillow top mattresses to make your next stay more soft and comfortable - so now there is an option for both firm and soft mattress lovers.
Thanks again and we hope to welcome you back to Lago Maggiore someday soon!
