Casa degli Archi - Apartment Bellavista

“Casa degli Archi”, a characteristic ancient palace, is set right in the centre of Orta San Giulio on Via Bersani, one of the most typical streets (closed to traffic) of this town. Strolling along it you can enjoy the sight of many interesting medieval buildings, the most remarkable of which is the “Towerhouse” with its architectonic element dating back to 1306.

This building is just a few steps away from the lakeshore is very close the main square, Piazza Motta, nicknamed the “drawing-room” of Orta; the square is lined on three sides by old houses built over wide porticoes which shelter little shops and cafés. The fourth side overlooks the lake, offering a panoramic view of the island of San Giulio. Boats leave from here for visits to the island and other villages around the lake.

The romantic apartment BELLAVISTA (110 m²), located on a quiet and sunny spot, is on the top floor of the building without lift (a lift in the XIV Century would be out of place!), which was restored to an apartment complex. Tastefully furnished and made unique by the refined “mansard style” roof, this flat conveys a feeling of warmth and romance.

The building is comfortably close to or within walking distance of restaurants, pubs and shops.

ON THE GROUND FLOOR THE APARTMENT OFFERS A LARGE LIVING ROOM WITH A DOUBLE SIZE SOFA BED AND DINING AREA – A KITCHEN (A 4- FLAME GAS BURNER, OVEN, DISHWASHER, MICROWAVE) AND A FULLY FURNISHED BATHROOM WITH HYDROMASSAGE SHOWER.

A WOODEN STAIRCASE LEADS UP TO THE FIRST FLOOR WITH A DOUBLE BED MASTER BEDROOM, A TWIN BEDROOM AND A BATHROOM.

A COT AND A BABY'S FOLDER CHAIR ARE ALSO AVAILABLE

FROM THE LARGE ARCADE WINDOWS, OVER THE ROOFTOPS, YOU CAN ENJOY A BREATHTAKING VIEW OF THE LAKE WITH PART OF THE ISLE OF SAN GIULIO AND THE MAJESTIC CHAIN OF THE ALPS.

ORTA SAN GIULIO, A DREAM TO...REMEMBER

The charm and fascination of the ancient village of Orta San Giulio are difficult to describe. Orta is the pearl and the heart of the lake. The absence of cars, the old houses with granite portals and wrought iron gates, the narrow lanes, the inner courtyards and the small, typical shops will take the visitor back to the past.

Largely unchanged for centuries Orta is simply enchanting with its typical cobbled streets and archways lined with plenty of bars and restaurants. The peace of the village is slow and unhurried and makes for a perfect place to spend a relaxing holiday.

Take a stroll through the narrow lanes to the main square (Piazza Motta) and enjoy a characteristic Italian dish, drink or excellent wines in one of the typical little cafes and restaurants which offer genuine food and hospitality. No photographs can prepare you to the magic island of San Giulio, which gleams in the water like a fabolous jewel. It is an intricate confection of narrow stone houses squeezed between fine villas with lacy wrought-iron gates and magnolias blooming at the water's edge. On the top of the Orta the Orta promontory there is the Holy mount consisting of twenty chapels in which are recreated some scenes from the life of San Francesco d'Assisi.

This unspoiled corner of Northern Italy, the breathtaking scenery, together with the artistic and cultural patrimony, will give you the feeling of an unforgettable experience.

This area also excels for the mild and healthy climate as testify the sub tropical vegetation with palms, oleanders, camellias, azaleas, rhododendrons, hybiscus, hortenses, kiwiplantations and vineyards.

LAKE ORTA, ITALY'S MOST ROMANTIC AND BEAUTIFUL LAKE

Lake Orta lies to the west of lake Maggiore. It is smaller and completely enclosed by a circle of green hills and mountains which form a sort of crown around it. It has a fascination all of its own because of its gentle and peaceful surroundings.

The lake has been an inspiration to poets and writers for centuries and is without doubt the most romantic lake in Italy and one of the most romantic places on earth.
