Lake Orta is dotted with romantic buildings that are reflected in the water. The lake's cool, clean waters are likely what's left of a retreating glacier.

  • Beautiful lake with a charming island in the center where there is a convent of seclusion. From the shores of the lake, and in particular from Orta San Giulio you have a spectacular view. In the town square overlooking the lake there are several very nice bars where you can drink and eat something with a view of the lake. We made the excursion with the boat on the island which turned out to be very interesting and enjoyable.

  • I dare not imagine what's going on here in the high season. In the low season an idyllwas is only recommended. Very nice but quite zebtral located and still (still) very quiet.
