Il Rustico Del Sole, a place between heaven and earth

High up in the mountains, the Rustico del Sole enjoys a privileged location. The view stretches over the Maggia delta and Lake Maggiore all the way to the Brissago islands. The path follows a spectacular hiking trail or for those who prefer a more exclusive route, a breathtaking, panoramic helicopter ride over natural wonders such as the Verzasca gorge. Perched 800 m above Lake Maggiore, Rustico del Sole is the perfect place for exclusive business meetings or intimate events with utmost privacy. Antonio Ferriroli and the Castello del Sole team take care of the cuisine and prepare traditional dishes with home-made and regional products at an airy height.

Welcome to the mountain

Nothing is more inspiring than Mother Nature. Especially here, above the rooftops of Ascona, in the Rustico del Sole. A perfect place for relaxation, pleasure, and simply feeling good. For consciously taking some time away from it all, making new plans in lofty heights or enjoying sweet indolence and letting oneself be spoiled with a menu of fresh, regional and sometimes rare products, including from the Terreni alla Maggia, a farm affiliated with the Rustico del Sole.

A flight to culinary heights

A lunch at the Rustico del Sole is the perfect reward for the difficult ascent on foot or by mountain bike. If you opt for arrival by helicopter instead – an exclusive experience that only The Living Circle can offer – you will be treated to delightful panorama views. The helicopter flight starts either directly at the heliport of the Castello del Sole or the Magadino heliport in Locarno. After a few minutes' flight, guests arrive at the Rustico del Sole and are greeted with an aperitif by the host, Antonio Ferriroli. They can enjoy the enchanting location and the view as the traditional lunch is served. If there is time left and if the weather and season permit, they can spend some time relaxing in the open-air wirhlpool and simply enjoy the view.

The future of the Rustico del Sole

The expansion of the offer of the Rustico del Sole is already planned for the coming year, from 2018 the Rustico del Sole will become a very exclusive retreat immersed in the Nature with sleeping facilities for 2 to 6 people. Guests will have the choice between a daytime visit with lunch or a longer stay with all the comfort you need in these unique surroundings.
