Lake Orta Hotels

Lake Orta Hotels

Lake Orta, Piedmont, is about ten miles west of Lake Maggiore. This is a lovely quiet place, surrounded by forests, hills and mountains overlooking the Mottarone, which separates the country of Omegna from Stresa, on Lake Maggiore.

Lake Orta is a beautiful resort with a good reception in terms of hotels, guest houses, apartments, B & Bs, cottages. Nestled in the woods, the lake offers travelers any type of attraction: culture, sports, relaxation, with a hint of mysticism that comes from the atmosphere that reigns on the island of San Giulio, in the middle of the lake.

Legend has it that San Giulio defeated a mighty dragon that occupied the island and here he built his hundredth church. On the island, which is accessible by boat from Orta San Giulio, there is a large building that houses the Benedictine convent, the Basilica with wooden sculptures and frescoes from the fifteenth to the eighteenth century, and several elegant villas where summer concerts and events take place.

Lake Orta is reachable by car from the A26 motorway, exit Borgomanero, and is bordered to the east by Highway N.229, parallel to the railway line Novara-Domodossola. Navigating in the summer season links the town of Orta, San Giulio Island, Pella, Boccioni, Lagna, Omega, Ronco and Pettenasco.
