Lake Orta - Villa San Giulio - 4+2 pax

Overview

If you are looking for relaxation and tranquility, you will certainly find it in this corner of special beauty. But also lots more if you feel like it: art, history, culture, nature, good food and wine, shopping, sport, golf, water-skiing, swimming. Motor boats and pedalos for hire. 50m from all facilities, this comfortable villa is ideal for families with children.
Lake Orta, one of the smallest and least-known of northern Italy's sub-Alpine lakes, is a place for sublime moments. The German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, who visited the lake in May 1882 and believed that the experience changed his life forever, inscribed the date "von Orta an" ("from Orta onwards") as a preface to his masterpiece Thus Spake Zarathustra. 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 Fireside", which contemplates the beauty of a setting where "Alp meets heaven in snow", describes the lakeside village of Pella as a luminous "speck of white... in the evening-glow"
