One package to enjoy is the Camellia and magnolia blossom at Lake Maggiore at the Albergo Carcani Ascona. The mild temperatures in Ticino mean that the camellias are awash in a sea of flowers from March onwards. For anyone wanting to marvel at this rich splendor of flowers at the beginning of spring while enjoying a couple of relaxing days by Lake Maggiore, the Albergo Carcani on the main square in Ascona offers the “Camellia and magnolia blossom at Lake Maggiore” special. The offer is available from 315 Swiss francs (approx. 290 euros) per person sharing a double room and includes three nights’ accommodation with breakfast buffet, a welcome aperitif and three-course menu on the day of arrival and a boat trip to the Brissago Islands, the botanical garden of Ticino.

For family time, take a short break with grandma and grandpa at the Hotel Eden Roc Ascona. As soon as the temperatures begin rising and the first of the sun’s rays light the new day, the spirits awaken and the little ones are bursting with energy and raring to go. All too often, however, we are tied down by our daily routine and there just isn’t enough time to do anything with the children. Nevertheless, grandparents often lend a helping hand. To let them enjoy a relaxing yet eventful time with their grandchildren, the Hotel Eden Roc in Ascona now offers the “Time for family” special. The offer includes two nights’ accommodation with breakfast and resort dine around as well as a free upgrade from a deluxe double room to a family suite. And while the grandparents relax in the 2,000 square meters of the Eden Roc Spa, a wide range of activities await the little ones including a scavenger hunt using mobile phones, balancing on the slackline, horse riding to the nearby Maggia River, a pirate day on the pirate ship, make-up and dancing lessons, the chance to become a director for the day and to shoot a short film about the holidays and much more besides. The offer is available from 740 Swiss francs (approx. 690 euros) per adult and is free for children up to the age of three. Children up to the age of 14 are charged 60 Swiss francs per night (approx. 55 euros) including resort dine around until 28 March 2015 and 100 Swiss francs (approx. 93 euros) from 27 March to 4 June 2015.
