You will find the Bed and Breakfast “Il Giardino Sul Lago” directly in Orta San Giulio, just a few steps away from “Piazza Motta” in the city center.
The “New York Times” called Lake Orta once the secret little sister of the Italian lakes in northern Italy. So far it has been spared from the mass tourism other subalpine lakes like Lake Maggiore and Lake Como are suffering from. As Friedrich Nietzsche wrote once, the place can change your life. He inscribed the date “von Orta an” (“from Orta onwards”) as a preface to his masterpiece Thus Spoke Zarathustra.
Orta itself is a beautiful, old city with frescoed houses and baroque architecture. Since the city center is closed for cars you can enjoy your dinner or aperitivo at Piazza Motta without being disturbed by traffic noise.
Right above Orta you can walk up to “Sacro Monte” which was inserted by UNESCO in the World Heritage List.
The beautiful, untouched nature around the lake offers lots of space for outdoor activities like hiking and mountain-biking. Book now!
