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.

Lake Orta is a mysterious jewel on the Piedmont boarder. The morning mists which rise from the lake give it an astonishingly medieval atmosphere. It is known as the lake of devotion due to having over 20 small chapels which surround the shore.

The southern tip of Lake Maggiore (known as Lake Maggiore South) lies in the Province of Novara, and is one of the most famous places in Italy to escape for a romantic break, due to the unrivalled beauty and tranquil atmosphere. There are also a huge number of activities to enjoy, from walking in the wooded hills and nature reserves which make up much of the shoreline to sailing or windsurfing on the lakes calm surface.

A perfect family home when you want to have peace & scerenity.

5 of 5
Highly recommended. Luca is the perfect host. When he said “everything you need is there” he really meant it. We just moved in as a family as if we were at home. Luca is very responsive and ready to fix any problem. His home is beautiful & spacious - a detached house with land on all four sides. Secure for the kids with plenty of outside space to play. Perfect and stunning views. Quaint local town close to Lake Orta. If you want to get out of the city and have a peaceful stay in a beautiful location - this is it. 4 bedrooms, 2 lovely bathrooms, open plan kitchen-diner & living space, with panoramic view of the mountains. Would highly recommend to families. Thanks Luca. Hope to stay with you again.
