Things to do on holiday in Lake Orta, Italy

When you first arrive at a self catering Lake Orta villa it may take some time to get over the sheer beauty of the area. One of the best ways to explore Lake Orta is to rent a row boat and head out into the still waters of the Lake.

The countryside around the lake is a haven for walking, riding and mountain biking holidays. There are riding stables and bike hire centres around the shores, located in the larger tourist centres around the lake. There is even a golf course within reach of a self catering Lake Orta villa, offering a taxing 18 holes to anyone who cares to try their swing.

If you do not feel like taking to the hills or boating across the lake from your Lake Orta property rental, there is a huge amount to see and do around the shores. The many beautiful settlements on the banks of the Lake are filled with wonderful religious monuments adorned with Italian frescos, beautiful luxury villas and some hugely atmospheric cafes and restaurants from which to relax and soak in the view.

The main living space was perfect for the two of us and we had everything we needed. In the large double bedroom is a huge and very comfortable bed; we slept very well! We really enjoyed long walks, exploring the local area and the boat trip over to Orta. Pella is a lovely village with a great crepe/ice cream cafe and a couple of very nice restaurants. We enjoyed all our meals out. A mini market is just opposite the apartment. Piera and Paolo are very kind, friendly and helpful hosts. Many thanks to them both for their very warm welcome.

We'd had a busy time and Pella was just the perfect ending to our trip. The village is beautiful with just the right amenities to get by, the local shop is next door and has all the essentials, anf there are 2 restaurants and a gelateria by the lakeside. The appartment is well equipped and comfortable adn Fabrizio was the perfect host, with his son even coming to pick us up from the railway station! I recommend Pella highly and we look forward to coming back again
