Hotel San Rocco

  • Italy, Lake Orta

Built on the site of a 17th century convent, this first class hotel is full of character. The San Rocco Hotel occupies a tranquil lakeside position in the narrow cobbled streets of traffic-free Orta San Giulio.

It is a short walk from the central Piazza Motta, which is the focus of the village life. Highlights of the hotel are the garden terrace, which leads right to the water’s edge and the outdoor swimming pool with panoramic views of the lake and the island of San Giulio.

Lake Orta

Lake Orta is one of Italy’s lesser known lakes and lies to the west of Lake Maggiore. The poet, Robert Browning, described Orta as being where ‘the Alps meet heaven’.

The small town and the famous island, Isola San Giulio with its famous monastery, are largely traffic-free and lined with little cafés and restaurants. If you’re looking for somewhere truly Italian but with a slower pace of life than ritzier Como or Maggiore, you can do no better than come to Orta.
