Furthermore, all eight well-furnished apartments have a balcony or terrace with a lake view! The apartments come in different shapes and sizes, location and decor but they all have use of an elevator, Wi-Fi in the communal hall and a communal launderette.
The apartments are owned by the Hotel Santa Caterina (approx. 700 m away), which is also where the reception is for check-in. You can order a garage space here, or you can park for free at the hotel's second car park which is located approx. 700 metres from the apartments. You can unload your luggage at the apartment, and then go to park the car, or alternatively a member of staff from the hotel will be happy to drive you to the apartments if you choose to park at the hotel. Guests in these apartments have access to a kitchen so you can cook for yourselves, however, if you wish to eat out, there are many opportunities in the town (500 m). Hotel Santa Caterina also has on-site restaurant Olina, where guests receive a 10% discount off the menu prices.
There is a private lake-beach (green lawn on the lake shore) in front of the building that houses most of the apartments which is free to use for all guests. You simply cross the small road and have sun loungers at your disposal and plenty of opportunity to soak up the panoramic and calming views of Lake Orta. There is also a bridge. The place is not particularly child-friendly as there are no playgrounds or other special children's facilities and in addition you enter directly into the water and not gradually as you would the sea. A road runs in front of the apartment that is used only by residents and delivery vehicles.
