A lovely apartment, very well equipped and the views from the apartment over the lake are breathtaking. Lake Orta itself was easy to explore and Stresa and lake Maggiore just 20 minutes away. Huge local market each Thursday in Omegna is also worth a visit. Roberto and the family couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. We would happily go...

My wife, I and my brother were eight days guest at Roberto and Famliie. It was a very nice stay, a great time. The apartment is lovely and spacious and everything is available. Roberto took us almost daily fresh vegetables, tomatoes etc. from his own cultivation. We can recommend this property at all times.

Hello Claus many thanks for your great review it was a pleasure having you...hope to see you another time

About the neighbourhood
Lake Orta (Italian: Lago d’Orta) is a lake in the north of Italy, west of Lake Maggiore.

'There is a code of silence that surrounds Lake Orta in northern Italy. Visitors are reluctant to tell others about its beauty for fear of increasing … well, the number of visitors. Indeed, it is astonishing how few people – even Italians – know about the place, and it is telling that the Milanese call it La Cenerentola (Cinderella) because they have long considered it the secretly superior sibling to the larger, money-blighted lakes of Como and Maggiore. But, for me, what sets Orta apart is not its beauty – though the place is absurdly pretty – but the lake's mysterious, ethereal, almost supernatural quality. There is something for the soul there as well as for the eye'.
