Here you stay right on the edge of Lake Orta, surrounded by the green hills of Pettenasco with wonderful lake views and quiet surroundings. Make the most of the endless lake views by taking your place on a sun lounger by the lovely pool. Pettenasco is just 700 metres away and the historic city of Orta is just 3 kilometres away.
There is plenty of opportunity to relax here on the hotel's sun terrace at the panoramic heated-pool whilst taking in the wonderful lake views. There is also a large roof terrace which is a great spot for some lake photography. There is also a bar so you can guarantee to get your favourite tipple to help you relax. If you wish to arrive by boat, there is small private jetty and moorings making it possible. From here you can even hire a motorboat and go water skiing. The hotel has a renowned restaurant, where well-prepared dishes can almost be described as gastronomic works of art. There are also 450 different wines on sale, which can also be purchased to take home at favourable prices. The restaurant offers a magnificent view of lake from which the lake's fabled small island Isola di San Giulio is also visible. The breakfast is a buffet and can be enjoyed either inside or out.

The atmosphere is warm and cosy and you are made to feel very welcome. Almost all of the hotel's 60 rooms have direct lake access and are either standard or superior. Several rooms can accommodate up to 4 people. There is a bit of noise emanating from the nearby coastal road but all of the rooms have double glazed windows to reduce the annoyance from this. You can also rent bicycles from the hotel so if you feel like exploring further a field and don't want to take the car, then you can do so on two wheels. Likewise since the train station is only 500 km away from the hotel, you can easily explore other areas from here by jumping on a train or arrive easily by train. The train to Milan takes approx. 2 hours with a change in Novara, but please note that the last train leaving Milan to here is late afternoon/early evening.
