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.

Recent Reviews

A spacious apartment in an excellent location for exploring Lake Maggiore and Milan.

5 of 5
We were welcomed by our host's family and settled into our apartment very quickly. The apartment was very clean, very well equipped; the air conditioning in the bedrooms made our stay very comfortable during a hot week. The apartment is spacious. Safe, off road, parking is available in the supermarket carpark next door. This shop is a good source of everyday items. The apartment, though it is in Dormelletto, is nearer Arona. We thought that Arona was a very pleasant town with lakeside walks and an interesting older area. We found free parking opposite the railway station. We used this parking when we visited Milan by train and later when we took advantage of the 2-day ticket on the Lake Maggiore Express to take boat trips and travel by train towards Locarno. We thoroughly recommend this place as a base for the area.

great house, great view, overall good location but a bit close to the railway line

4 of 5
Luciano was lovely and really helpful. the house is spacious, well furnished to a high standard (the kitchen seems to have every kitchen gadget that was ever made) and the garden is spacious. Do be aware that wifi is limited by download OK for a bit of info browsing but steer clear of video etc. It's 10-15 mins to town with some nice restaurants and a very relaxed vibe. Also a similar time to walk to the main swimming area - we would recommend the footpath route to town since there is no sidewalk on the road and local drivers seem unaware of the need to actually avoid pedestrians! 2017 was a huge heatwave (>30deg) and with no aircon we did feel it. It also seemed to bring out some vicious mosquitos which did rather ruin eating outside and meant leaving the windows open at night was a problem. The railway line is literally across the road. Although it's not that busy and trains are slow so not really noisy, for a light sleeper the rumbling trains every couple of hours does wake you up. Overall, we had a great time and loved the villa.
