La Palma au Lac Hotel & Spa is surrounded by the Ticino mountains, on the shores of Lake Maggiore. It is 15 minutes' walk from Locarno, which has cobblestone-streets and is dotted with lemon trees and palm trees. In the city centre is the Piazza Grande, well-known for its annual film festival.

On the edge of the Old Town is Castello Visconteo, a castle dating back to the 12th century. Above Locarno is the church of Madonna del Sasso, which has views over the town, lake and mountains.

The hotel has undergone a £4 million refurbishment. You can relax in the new spa which has a sauna, a steam bath and a sun terrace with whirlpools and lake views.

Superior rooms have a balcony and waterfront views. The hotel’s restaurant with lake view terrace serves Ticino and Italian specialties.
