Make a holiday rental home or villa in Novara, Italy your home away from home

The province of Novara lies in the Piedmont region of northern Italy, whose capital city goes by the same name. Novara is one of Italy’s most elegant and unhurried cities, first founded by the Ligurians and given a new lease of life by the Romans, whose influence is still very much the dominant influence. The surrounding countryside is known as the ‘land of water’, and is a stunning place to relax, where the scenery cannot fail to inspire.

Things to do on holiday in Novara, Italy

Novara is a fantastic place to investigate Roman history and lifestyles. The Decumano is undoubtedly the most famous sight of Novara, and is definitely worth visiting. The Piazza della Republica receives less attention around the world than it should. With the majestic, neoclassical cathedral designed by Alessandro Antonelli standing dominantly on one side and the fresco adorned Museo Lapidario della Canonica on the other, which displays some remarkable artefacts from throughout the ages.

Taking a self catering Novara holiday villa outside of the provincial capital is a different experience with each season. Situated between the snow capped alps and the blue waters of the lake region, spring time sees the entire plain covered in the clear melt waters coming off the mountains, forming the famous Piedmontese rice fields. There are two large nature reserves in the area which protect and preserve the many rare species of bird which flock to the region. The Lame del Sesia Nature Park is the largest, where cycling and walking are excellent options for an afternoon of entertainment, inspiration and interest.

There are eight golf courses within a short distance of a holiday rental villa in Novara. The Bogogno Golf Club, Castelconturbia Golf Club and Iles Borromees Golf Club all have at least 18 holes, set in beautiful, undulating scenery.
