LAKE ORTA, ITALY'S MOST ROMANTIC AND BEAUTIFUL LAKE Lake Orta lies to the west of lake Maggiore. It is smaller and completely enclosed by a circle of green hills and mountains which form a sort of crown around it. It has a fascination all of its own because of its gentle and peaceful surroundings. The lake has been an inspiration to poets and writers for centuries and is without doubt the most romantic lake in Italy and one of the most romantic places on earth.

It is smaller and completely enclosed by a circle of green hills and mountains which form a sort of crown around it. It has a fascination all of its own because of its gentle and peaceful surroundings. The lake has been an inspiration to poets and writers for centuries and is without doubt the most romantic lake in Italy and one of the most romantic places on earth. ORTA SAN GIULIO, A DREAM TO...REMEMBER The 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 peace of the village is slow and unhurried and makes for a perfect place to spend a relaxing holiday. Take a stroll through the narrow lanes to the main square (Piazza Motta) and enjoy a characteristic Italian dish, drink or excellent wines in one of the typical little cafes and restaurants which offer genuine food and hospitality. No photographs can prepare you to the magic island of San Giulio, which gleams in the water like a fabolous jewel. It is an intricate confection of narrow stone houses squeezed between fine villas with lacy wrought-iron gates and magnolias blooming at the water's edge. On the top of the Orta the Orta promontory there is the Holy mount consisting of twenty chapels in which are recreated some scenes from the life of San Francesco d'Assisi. 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. “CASA AL LAGO” The “Casa al Lago” , a typical ancient building dating back to the XVIII Century is situated right in the historical center of Orta San Giulio; it overlooks Via Olina, the main street of this pretty town, and is surrounded by ancient and noble mansions, where visitors can enjoy the sight of beautiful ironworks, one of the most ancient crafts widely practised in this area. The main entrance to the house is on Vicolo Olina, a pedestrian lane leading directly to the lakeside. The building is just a few steps away from the picturesque Piazza Motta, nicknamed the “drawing room” with its bars and restaurants overlooking the wharf and featuring panoramic terraces from which the visitors can enjoy the breathtaking view of the magic Isle of San Giulio. During your stay in this town of rare beauty the total absence of cars, the murmur of the waves lapping on the shore and the majestic ancient scenery will take you back in time and make you feel as if breathing a sort of Venetian atmosphere …… APARTMENT “FAMILY” The 65 sq.m. comfortable and pleasing apartment, situated on the first floor, was tastefully restored preserving the original architectonic style.
