Additional Location Information

Villa Castel is situated on the shores of Lake Orta, which lies 20 minutes west of Lake Maggiore. The beauty of Lake Orta lies in its tranquillity. Visitors can stroll down the cobbled streets of Orta San Giulio and enjoy leisurely boat rides to the enchanting Island of San Giulio. A memorable Alpine backdrop that includes Sacro Monte frames this stunning lake, which used to be called Cusio.Lake Orta is one of the smaller, less well known Italian Lakes. At its maximum points it is 13.4 km long and 2.5 km wide.  It is not as busy as Lake Como or Maggiore, but it is only a 45 minute drive from Milan Malpensa.
There are many different activities and things to do in the surrounding area, including horse riding, golf, marked hiking and mountain bike trails, shopping, eating out, water parks and water skiing on the lake.Skiing on the Mottarone reveals stunning views of Lake Orta and Lake Maggiore, along with views as far as the Ligurian Apennines and Swiss Alps, the Po Valley Plain and the Massif of Monte Rosa.
