Orta, and this house are truly one of a kind. Our immediate family stayed for a week during the spring of 2013 and it was an unforgettable experience. The house is spacious with spectacular views throughout, old world charm meets modern amenities and well selected furnishings. The island is quiet and unbelievably beautiful. Truly unmatched and unforgettable - GO!

Malpensa Airport is the closest airport to Orta (46 km, a 50 minute drive on the A26 motorway, exit at Arona and then take the state road SP299 to Orta San Giulio). The road network in the area is good. One can also arrive by train, or by bus.The way to cross from Orta to the island and vice versa is by public transport motorboats or guests can use our boat which gives them full flexibility. It is a Canadian aluminium boat that takes 5/6 people and is unsinkable. Our guests can chose between using the motor or the oars. They can also use our garage which is on the mainland. We meet our guests in Orta square to facilitate their settling into the house. To sight-see the region one needs a car. The local area has good bus services.
