ORTA SAN GIULIOThe charm and fascination of the ancient village of Orta San Giulio are difficult to describe. Orta is the pearl and the heart of the lake. The absence of cars, the old houses with granite portals and wrought iron gates, the narrow lanes, the inner courtyards and the small, typical shops will take the visitor back to the past.Largely unchanged for centuries Orta is simply enchanting with its typical cobbled streets and archways lined with plenty of bars and restaurants.

The pace of the village is slow and unhurried and makes for a perfect place to spend a relaxing holiday.Take a two-minutes stroll through the narrow lanes to the main square and enjoy a characteristic Italian dish or drink excellent wines in one of the typical little cafes and restaurants which offer genuine food and hospitality.In this unspoiled corner of Northern Italy, the breathtaking scenery, together with the artistic and cultural patrimony, will give you the feeling of an unforgettable experience.This area also excels for the mild and healthy climate as testify the sub tropical vegetation with palms, oleanders, camellias, azaleas, rhododendrons, hybiscus, hortenses, kiwiplantations and vineyards.In every season you can enjoy entchanting short and daily hikes and mountain tours.“CASA DEGLI ARCHI”“Casa degli Archi”, a characteristic ancient palace, is set right in the center of Orta San Giulio on Via Bersani, one of the most typical streets (closed to traffic) of this town. Strolling along it you can enjoy the sight of many interesting medieval buildings, the most remarkable of which is the “Towerhouse” with its architectonic element dating back to 1306. This building is just a few steps away from the lakeshore is very close the main square, Piazza Motta, nicknamed the “drawing-room” of Orta; the square is lined on three sides by old houses built over wide porticoes which shelter little shops and cafés. The fourth side overlooks the lake, offering a panoramic view of the island of San Giulio. Boats leave from here for visits to the island and other villages around the lake.APARTMENT “PANORAMICO” - 2/6 PAX -This romantic flat (100 m²), located on a quiet and sunny spot, is on the top floor of the building (a lift in a XIV Century house would be out of place!), which was restored to an apartment complex.

The building is comfortably close to or within walking distance of restaurants, pubs and shops.ON THE GROUND FLOOR THE APARTMENT OFFERS A LARGE LIVING ROOM WITH A DOUBLE SIZE SOFA BED AND DINING AREA – A KITCHEN (A 4- FLAME GAS BURNER, OVEN, DISHWASHER, MICROWAVE) AND A FULLY FURNISHED BATHROOM WITH HYDROMASSAGE SHOWER.A WOODEN STAIRCASE LEADS UP TO THE FIRST FLOOR WITH A DOUBLE BED MASTER BEDROOM, A TWIN BEDROOM AND A BATHROOM.A COT AND A BABY'S FOLDER CHAIR ARE ALSO AVAILABLE FROM THE LARGE ARCADE WINDOWS, OVER THE ROOFTOPS, YOU CAN ENJOY A BREATHTAKING VIEW OF THE LAKE ALL THE WAY TO THE FISHERMAN'S VILLAGE OF PELLA AND THE MAJESTIC CHAIN OF THE ALPS.
