A relaxing alpine spa hotel with breathtaking views in Locarno - includes breakfast and spa access, plus discounts

Sunny Mediterranean vibes permeate the refreshing alpine setting of the La Palma au Lac. Surrounded by the lush Swiss Alps and the still beauty of Lake Maggiore - which is so vast it sits partly in Switzerland and partly in Italy. In fact the hotel is so close to the border with Italy that you can be saying "ciao" to it in around 30 minutes drive.

The hotel is stripped back in places, such as the uncluttered, modern rooms, and chic in others, such as terracotta-coloured columns in the chandelier-dripping restaurant. You’ll find a sweeping sun-terrace furnished with inviting loungers, a well-equipped modern spa and gym, and ever-present views.

A short walk from the historic centre of Locarno you’re perfectly placed to go from lakeside-promenading to central-sightseeing in minutes. The old town and waterfront of Locarno is awash with pretty pastel facades, cobbled streets and open squares. Linger in charming arcades and inviting cafes and be sure to check the festival schedule before you arrive as you might chance upon a film festival or firework display.
