Easter vacations for families

Sometimes vacation planning alone is reason enough for an acute need for recreation. However, when planning family vacations, many questions arise in advance. Which region is family-friendly? Which hotel has something to offer for everyone? Are the activities on offer exciting? Are there child-friendly restaurants? We have compiled the answers for you here. The only thing you should do is pack your bags and head off south. In any case, Ticino and Ascona are perfect for a family vacation together. Because in Giardino Ascona all members of the family can recharge their batteries. Discover Ticino together on exciting excursions, try new sports on the lake or the mountains, and, of course, eat delicious and healthy food. While the little ones play in the Dino Club in its park, the grown-ups sit back and relax.

Dino Kids Club

Fun for adults and children

Ticino is truly a wonderland for the little ones. Our Dino Kids Club guide knows exactly where the best corners and places to play are on the grounds of Giardino Ascona. The latter is not afraid of making discoveries or having adventures with the kids. A real all-rounder, who knows the Giardino Ascona and with new ideas acts every day as expedition leader, fun maker, and storyteller. So the adults can sit back and enjoy themselves alone.

The Dino Kids Club in the middle of Giardino Ascona offers everything for a perfect vacation for our little guests. Children aged 3 years and older can play and romp together on the soccer field under the watchful eye of our Kids Guide, do handicrafts, capture vacation memories in picturesque form and fortify themselves at lunch together on the terrace or in the Dino Kids Club itself. Individual childcare for children under 3 years of age is also available by arrangement.

Rooms and suites

Plenty of space for the whole family

Children up to 12 years always sleep free of charge in the room of the (grand)parents, with breakfast included. In the double rooms, there is a pull-out sofa bed available for this purpose, except in the category double room Casa Rosa, with a size of 1.2 x 2 meters. However, we recommend a maximum occupancy of two children up to the age of 10 years. In the Junior Suites and Suites, the size of these pull-out sofa beds is 1.6 x 2 meters. We are happy to provide baby cribs for our youngest guests, except in the Casa Rosa double room category. We cannot recommend a combination of a pull-out sofa bed and a baby crib in our double rooms due to space constraints.

For children 13 years and older, the sleeping option with the pull-out sofa beds costs CHF 170 per child per night, also including breakfast in addition to the usual costs for the (grand) parents’ room. An extra extra bed in a double room is not possible. Rooms with connecting doors are available in many room categories at Giardino Ascona. Our reservation staff will be happy to advise you based on your individual space requirements.

Family activities in Ticino

Still Switzerland – but almost Italy. The Ticino spring exudes a certain lightness and a touch of dolce vita. A fantastic alpine panorama, just waiting to be explored, opens up to you. Of course, this is best done in the mountains themselves, or from the water. Hiking boots, bicycles, and boats are perfect for getting around, depending on your preference and choice of activity. And if you prefer to take it easy, you can find your spot by the lily pond in our bar lounge or the warm spa.
