Description

The villa

We sell a villa overlooking Lago Orta, one of the beautiful Italian lakes in the North, close to Lago di Como and Lago di Garda.

In Orta in Piedmont, for sale a splendid historic residence from the 1600s overlooking Lake Orta.

This unique property is a former monastery, which over time has become an elegant private home.

The family of the current owners fell in love with the beauty of the property and the stupendous view of the island of San Giulio, an important tourist attraction on Lake Orta.

The structure of the building is in blocks of local stone and pink Baveno granite, typical materials for building period villas.

The position, on the top of the hill, overlooks the lake. In the vicinity of the property for sale, there are the chapels of the Via Crucis of the Sacro Monte di Orta.

The property is located within an area of 8,000 square meters, partly parkland, partly lawn and partly woodland.

The floral essences are typical of Lake Orta and Lake Maggiore, in fact they are distributed among magnolias, azaleas, camellias and hydrangeas.

Those who know how to appreciate the beauty of nature and silence will find in this characteristic property the ideal place for reflection and relaxation.

The internal distribution of the spaces has remained the original one. The charm of history and tradition has been maintained.

The internal details, for example the terracotta floors, the stone fireplaces and other details reveal the charm of the 17th century.

The roof structure is made up of chestnut beams, while the roof is in the typical stone structure (piode).

Internally, the surface measures over 2,200 square meters, divided into 19 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms and a master apartment.

Everything revolves around a cloister, typical of monastic structures. The maintenance conditions are good, even if the whole property needs an update in the systems.

Adjacent to the property, there is the beautiful Church of Saints Nicolao and Francesco, a place that welcomes many couples from Italy and from all over the world, who intend to get married in a place full of charm.

Lago Maggiore

One of the biggest draws of Lago Maggiore is its stunning scenery. The lake itself is surrounded by beautiful mountains and lush greenery, creating a picturesque backdrop for any home. Additionally, the area is known for its sunny weather and mild temperatures, which make it a great place to enjoy outdoor activities year-round.

You can take a boat to explore the lake’s many islands, such as the Borromean Islands which are known for their beautiful gardens and historic buildings. In the summer, youcan swim in the lake’s clear waters or enjoy various water sports like sailing, kayaking, and windsurfing.
