Located in the Piedmont region between year-round snow-capped mountains and ancient pines, Lake Orta basks in the serene, calm reflection of Mother Nature.
Home to a UNESCO heritage monument, the Sacro-Monte, meaning ‘Sacred Mountain’, makes this the perfect spot for a tour around the twenty or so chapels that date as far back as the sixteenth century.
You will come to find that Lake Orta is not just beauty spot but an interesting place of outstanding cultural and historical significance.
The town of Orta is a little gem. It is purely Italian in style, as is the island of San Giulio, which lies 400 metres from the riverbank, offering a most splendid view for guests to gaze upon whilst they are dining in their hotel on the banks of lake Orta.
