Vue imprenable sur le lac Majeur,
chambre moderne de grand standing

La première valeur de ce très bel hôtel est sa situation qui se traduit par une vue imprenable et grandiose sur le lago Maggiore, de Locarno aux îles de Brissago et au-delà. Lever ou coucher de soleil sont juste magnifiquesNotre chambre était très bien équipée, selon les derniers standards de qualité avec un mobilier des plus agréables. Le balcon avec la vue décrite ci-dessus est bien sûr une excellente contrition. Le personnel est avenant et très professionnel. La piscine avec ses chaises longues orientées en direction du lac Majeur est juste parfaite pour se reposer après une marche dans les sentiers environnants. Le petit-déjeuner sur la terrasse est une belle façon de commencer la journée. Si le buffet est riche, on peut avoir un seul regret: l'offre manque de produits authentiques de fabrication artisanale ou bio. Un changement à ce propos serait un grand plus. Si le prix de la chambre était un brin excessif sur le week-end, cela est compensé par une offre de navette jusqu'à la gare de Locarno et des prix très attractifs aux restaurant et au bar. Bref, une belle adresse pour se reposer au cours d' un week-end prolongé.

A magic place to rest and relax

Discovering nature and relaxing

The history of Casa Berno

Impressive and visible to any visitor of Ascona, from the lake side, the slim bell tower of the church of S. Pietro e Paolo rises into the sky over the town between the Casa Serodine and the town hall (Municipio). The church icon that has grown through the centuries not only holds some of the most beautiful religious works of the famous local painter Giovanni Serodine who died in the faraway Rome. In a glass shrine, the head of a man, the Chiesa Madre now prays to as one of its saints, is kept as a sacred relic.
Beato Pietro Berno was born (supposedly) in 1553 in the then hardly-known town of Ascona as the son of simple craftspeople. Even then, in Rome housed a considerable colony of emigrated Asconese. As an early missionary, Beato Berno took a ship to Lisbon on 4th April 1579 and arrived on 8th October of the same year to Goa, at thistime the capital city of Portuguese India, with his brothers in the faith. After the arrival, Berno immediately joined the mission managed by the Jesuits and Dominicans. Only a few days later, Berno and his friars fell victim to a fanatic crowd on 13th July 1583.
Briefly, after the news of his death reached Ascona, the now-legendary spiritual emigrant was revered as a kind of local saint in his home town. It was only three hundred years later, however, that Pope Leo signed the church documents declaring Ascona’s son to one of the highest martyrs of the faith on 13th November 1892.
In any case, the religious history of Ascona would be unthinkable without the names of Papio and Berno and would be lacking many aspects of an active people’s piety.
On the Creation of the Hotel Casa Berno The current hotel was built in 1961 and 62 and initially opened as a senior’s residence. After one year, it was converted into a hotel. It underwent several expansions and renovations and has since then been operated as the Hotel Casa Berno. The Casa Berno is owned by the foundation “Fondazione Beato Pietro Berno, Ascona” and is managed by Manuela and Bruno Caratsch since 10 years. The hotel is a business- and profit-oriented company. The acquired revenue is mostly used to support social projects of the foundation.
