To discover. To taste. To listen. Starring Orta san Giulio

There are many special places enclosed in the ancient medieval village of Orta san Giulio. Bifora65, located in the city center, will allow you to easily reach the Sacro Monte on foot, to visit its extraordinary frescoed chapels and enjoy the wonderful view on the island; the central piazza Motta, with its sixteenth-century Palazzotto, where you can organize lake excursions by boat or rent motorboats.

Just 900 meters from the property is located the Relais et Château Villa Crespi, with the renowned Michelin Starred cuisine by Antonino Cannavacciuolo, while in the town center, the Locanda di Orta offers its gourmet restaurant awarded a Michelin star. In the summer season you can easily reach the Orta Festival venues, a high-level international event dedicated entirely to classical music. The parish church of Santa Maria Assunta and the Basilica di san Giulio, on the island carrying the same name, are in fact the usual and fascinating frames.
