2300 hours of sunshine a year, Mediterranean vegetation with palms and lemon trees, the mildest climate of the entire Switzerland: Minusio, important municipality of the touristic area of Locarno, on the shores of Lake Maggiore, offers a thousand charming proposals and a network of services to the population.

A picturesque pedestrian/bike path passes through the municipality and runs along the lake, driving to the discovery of amazing natural landscapes and prestigious monuments, such as the Cà di Ferro, a massive building with a mysterious afflatus, or the Church of Saint Quiricus which overlooks the lake with its bell tower.

Minusio and Locarno are very close to each other and have a millennial fascinating history, with origins dating back to the Iron Age, which evolved continuously until reaching the current tourist/residential vocation.

Locarno is known worldwide for its famous International Film Festival and is also home to the Moon and Stars Festival, dedicated to international pop and rock music. It is a pleasant livable town with fascinating alleys in the Old Town, historical palaces and houses in pastel colours, the majestic Castle of the Visconti family and an attractive lakefront embellished by the surrealist sculptures by Jean Arp. Breathtaking views accessible by cable railway, the thermal baths of the Lido di Locarno, ski facilities just minutes away from the centre: a region which knows how to realize the dreams of those who experience it.


A privileged position made even more special by exclusive services; the nearness to the hotel is an added value, with the possibility of using its leisure facilities and health treatments. The care of the body — the house where your dreams are born — is a vital ally for a calm and gratifying life, and this is the reason why ESTATE & ESPLANADE has decided to integrate its housing proposals with the historical services offered by Hotel Esplanade: a beautiful swimming pool inside the hotel private park, offering relief from summer heat and relax in the shade of palm trees with a drink, a fully equipped gym and a SPA area with sauna, Turkish bath, Jacuzzi and many other beauty and relaxing treatments performed by wellness professionals, together with a comfortable chauffeur service.

In addition, delicious cuisine proposed by renowned chefs offered at the restaurant "La Belle Époque" or on the terrace with panoramic view. Lifestyle leaves the domestic walls remaining in a classy world and becoming a prestigious and precious well-being.
