Palazzo Sul Lago

Location and Surrounding Area

Located on the eastern shores of Lake Orta, this elegant four-bedroom villa is the perfect place for a stylish break by Italy’s most romantic lake. Tucked between Lake Maggiore and the Valsesia, Lake Orta is surrounded by little towns bathed in soft light. Luxuriant greenery and a wealth of flowers flourish in the mild climate filling gardens that sweep down the lakeside. Higher up the hillsides are beech, oak and birch woods, where a range of outdoor activities can be enjoyed.

Overlooking the forest-lined banks of the lake, the tiny village of Orta San Giulio has abundant allure. There is something magical about rising early and heading for a coffee on Piazza Mario Motta, gazing across at the sun-struck Isola San Giulio in the early-morning quiet. At the north of the square, which burbles with local life on market day, a fresco-enlivened structure sitting atop pillars like giant stills, the Palazzotto, was once the seat of a local council and now occasionally opens for temporary exhibitions.

At the center of the lake, the Isola San Giulio houses the stunning Basilica of San Giulio, founded in the 4th century. Inside the basilica is a large bone, which, according to legend, belonged to one of the terrible dragons San Giulio vanquished from the island. Beyond the lush gardens and residences that mark the hills rising behind Orta is a kind of parallel town, the Sacro Monte di San Francesco, where twenty small chapels devoted to Saint Francis of Assisi and built between the 16th and 18th centuries dot the leafy hillside.

The property is also a few kilometers from Lake Como, whose sparkling waters and stunning scenery have inspired poets and artists for centuries. These days, the fabulous villas for which the lake is famous are popular with celebrities. Explore the pretty lakeside towns or pull on hiking boots and climb up to castles, mount a horse or grab a mountain bike, and then cool down in the shady garden of one of the villas. The best way to admire the lake itself is from one of the ferries linking all the main towns on the shore.
