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'. From The Guardian, http://ww...
How to get there
The apartment is easily accessible from any Milan Airport, the nearest is Malpensa Aiport which is only 45 minutes away. Low cost airlines that fly into Malpensa are Easyjet and Flybe. Ryanair fly into Milano Orio, which is 1 hour and 30 minutes away. The use of a car is necessary to enjoy all the local amenities.
