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 incredible beauty of the lake and the pure serenity of visiting means that those who visit very rarely wish to advertise the fact, keeping Lake Orta as a secret haven.

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.

Property scrupulously clean and well equipped.Very warm welcome from host. Superb peaceful location

5 of 5
As a family of five with three adult children we all really enjoyed a great holiday and would love to repeat the visit. The apartment was very spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean with wonderful lake views from the windows. The property was in an outstanding location right beside Lake Orta. One of the highlights of the holiday was the easy access to the lake from the beautiful garden, via the boathouse which had paved steps and a rope handrail leading directly into the water. The lake was very clean and clear and we swam two or three times a day. Wonderful! It was only a five minute walk to get to several small shops and restaurants in the picturesque old town. The most important being a delicious ice cream shop. Boats at the town square could take you to other locations on Lake Orta. The setting of the apartment was so idyllic and peaceful that we were content to stay in the garden by the lake a lot of time rather than do too much exploring by car. Stefano was a most welcoming host. He went out of his way to be most helpful to us and we really enjoyed hearing about the history of the building and his family connection to it. We would have no hesitation in strongly recommending this property.

A view to dream of and feast upon.

5 of 5
Lake Orta is beautiful and the view from the apartment simply stunning with the island centre stage.The accomodation clean and well equipped although perhaps could benefit from more comfortable seating for those lazy evenings.Nicolo and Maria were extremely welcoming and helpful and did their best to ensure our stay was enjoyable. It certainly was. A fantastic ice cream parlour only steps away and a couple of pizzerias and a good restaurant a matter of yards.Ferries and water taxis on the doorstop but car hire advisable to explore the wider fantastic scenery. A memorable holiday thanks
