Hotel Eden Roc package, encompassing a trip to the Botanical Gardens of Gambarogno

FlowerA trip to the famous Botanical Gardens of Gambarogno is akin to a visit to paradise. Let the beauty of the magnolias and the scents of the camellias beguile you. Stay at Ascona’s Hotel Eden Roc from 18th to 23rd March 2007 and an expert will take you around the 1.7-plus hectares of grounds, where you will learn all there is to know about the treasures that thrive in Gambarogno, with its thousands of brightly coloured plants – including no fewer than 950 species of camellias – all smiling up at you. You’ll also see azaleas there as well as peonies, ivies, pines, juniper bushes and plenty more wonders of nature clamouring for your attention. On your return  to the hotel, you’ll be able to join Mr. Eisenhut, a tree nurseryman and the founder of the Botanical Gardens of Gambarogno, for a cocktail reception and dinner at the Restaurant Eden Roc. 5 nights in a double room starts from 710 euros per person, inclusive of half-board and excursions.
