About the neighbourhood
The area around Lake Orta has long been a favorite tourists, thanks to the quiet beauty of the landscape, its fascinating history and its wealth of artistic treasures - principally Romanesque and Baroque architecture. Lake Orta lies to the west of Lake Maggiore, it is one of the smallest and least-known of northern Italy's sub-Alpine lakes.

Other 19th-century writers enchanted by its quiet beauty include the French novelist Honoré de Balzac, who wrote rapturously of this 'grey pearl in a green jewel-box', and Robert Browning. His poem 'By the Fir...
