Your holiday accommodation in Brissago
Brissago is located between Locarno, the warmest city in Switzerland, and the frontier with Italy. The small Ticinese town is also the lowest point in Switzerland, at only 197 meters above sea-level.
Brissago’s reputation reaches far beyond the frontier for its marvellous view out over the Isole di Brissago. Mansions with fabulous gardens look out over the view of the two small Brissago islands, especially the botanical gardens created by the Russian Baroness Antoinette Saint-Léger as a paradise on earth between 1885 to 1928. The green island paradise is easily accessible by boat.
Brissago is also famous for its tobacco factory and its iconic cigars. The enchanting hamlet bewitches visitors with its picturesque lakeside village centre. With its narrow, winding alleys leading up to the wonderful Renaissance church of San Pietro e Paolo, the village is the perfect place for a stroll.
