Beautiful landscape
Jun 2021 • Family
Nice place, small lake, romantic surrounding landscape of green hills/vineyards/mountains. You can rent a small boat (or a pedaló/kayak) , have a walk or enjoy coffee/restaurants. Some small campings, beautiful with bike, the reconstructed pile dwellings can be visited freely, the blue cold water. Better to avoid swimming. Shame about the noisy and polluting motors batches.

the lake is superb with a mountian backdrop, plenty of excellent restuarants as well. The water is clean and refreshing for swimming, stand up paddle boarding, other water sports are availble including wakeboarding and pedaloes.

Nice lake with good cafes around
Choice of sites astonished how quiet it was for early August
Can’t find our site to review but ok would get s 3 due to lack of hot water /plus only 3 amp supply
Plus why put the visitors ..potentially repeat at the back of the site
Possibly to many permanent residents which is often the case in Italian sites
Got a 4 for the area though
Lovely

A little gem with views of the Alps
Jul 2019 • Solo
This small but beautiful lake is situated north of the city of Turin.
It is not on the British tourism circuit but is frequently visited by the inhabitants of Turin and Biella.
It is quiet and relaxing
Well served by hotels and bars it also provides access to water sports and camping

Cycle path around the lake
Jun 2019 • Family
There is an 18k cycle path around the lake....but be warned, it’s a bit haphazard! It’s interrupted in many places by campsites or nature reserves and not very well marked! About 400m went through brambles and nettles and clearly had only seen a couple of visitors in the recent past. It rarely spends much time by the lake and to be honest doesn’t really offer up much to recommend it.

Nice, quiet and more natural lake
Sep 2017 • Friends
The lake is less known than many other lakes in northern Italy. The lake is therefore more natural, wild and also quiet than the others.

Discover this jewel!

Of all the places you could choose in Northern Italy, this one, is not to be missed! Just about 20 km south west of the town of Biella, there is so much history of the Lago di Viverone with its surrounding colline moreniche and archeological sites. When driving up from "Castello di Roppolo", the landscape magically open to a stunnign view of the lake and surrounding hills. On the right side, there are vineyards and charming small hilltop villages such as Roppolo, Piverone and on into the "Canavese" and la Serra.

Having lived abroad for over 20+, as an Italian, I have always been highly selective and, I must admit, critical of Italy, I grew up in an agricultural and boring area of this region, Piemonte. However, I can enthusiastically say that Lake Viverone, has captivated even my critical taste--
His surrounding landscape is so charming and picture perfect, yet, strangely unknown, compared to more well-advertised destinations such as Lake Garda. This Lake and the Hills and villages around it deserves all the praise and publicity! History, exquisite cuisine, hiking, biking, and water sports in the summer are all available here.
In the Fall, it is peaceful and for artists wanting to look for inspiration for a painting.
Indeed, picture perfect!

Beautiful lake with amazing surrounding
Jun 2015 • Couples
We love the Viverone lake...we even prefer it than the Como lake (too many tourists and crowds).... Just 1hour far from Milan, this beautiful lake surrounded by the moraine offers awesome panoramas and peace. We practise water sports there - it is the place of wake boarding ( with the boat.). In the villages around you can find the great kitchen of Piemonte.
