“Il dolce far niente”, or sweet idleness, is celebrated in the Villa Orselina, but if you’re a sports enthusiast, you’ll get your money’s worth as well. Our fitness room and heated outdoor pool with idyllic sunbathing areas are available to you, and both have a dream view of Lake Maggiore and the mountains of Ticino. If the view alone is not enough for you, you can scale the surrounding hills on foot or with one of our mountain bikes. Hiking: Ticino is famous for its countless well developed hiking routes. Whether it's a leisurely ridgeway with a panoramic view over Lake Maggiore or an adventurous trail run, we’ll be happy to give you advice. Golf: In the immediate vicinity of the Villa Orselina are two 18-hole golf courses in Ascona and Losone that are open year-round. We’ll be happy to organise a day of golf for you. Biking: We provide test bicycles free of charge for you to explore. Mountain bike routes through Ticino’s Alpine world with fantastic views start right at the hotel. Water Sports: You can water-ski or ride a jet-ski, sail or rent a motor boat on Lake Maggiore. We’ll be delighted to put together a programme for you.
The region around Villa Orselina offers you countless possibilities for a varied holiday. How about an excursion to Ascona, Morcote or Lugano, for example? Or a boat trip to the Brissago Islands? We will be happy to help you with the organisation and put together a tailor-made programme for you.
Villa Orselina has an outdoor tennis court that was completely renovated in 2020. The location of the clay court is fantastic. It is located below the hotel with a view of Lake Maggiore, the famous Madonne del Sasso pilgrimage church and is surrounded by palm trees and chestnut trees.
