The b&B between Orta Lake and Mottarone

The b&B between Orta Lake and Mottarone -

Immersed in the green, away from the usual tourist circuit, but at the same time a stone's throw from the Lake Orta and from the beauties of Mottarone, our Bed and Breakfast is an ancient farmhouse recently renovated with a beautiful view of the surroundings and of the Lake. The area is quite and sunny, surrounded by beech and chestnut trees. It's the ideal base for relaxing walks and wilderness hiking trips with Francesco, a qualified walking and trekking guide for Piedmont.

The environment is welcoming and familiar. We have three double rooms, two of these with the possibility of an additional bed. We are equipped to accomodate children and your pets are also welcome...

We are expecting you!

Natural life, slow tourism and ecology

Natural life, slow tourism and ecology -

With more than 500 km of walking paths and trails , the area surrounding Lake Orta is best discovered on foot or by mountain bike. It's a natural environment, still intact which preserves many traces of past activity . Following them , you will discover ancient villages that bear witness to the great skill of our ancestors in the working of stone and wrought iron. In the woods you will see the terraces that were used for the cultivation of rye and vines , as well as the chestnut trees and the  charcoal burners . Going up to the Mottarone you will encounter numerous lush pastures , where each year, in times past, local families went together with their cattle to spend the summer season. Many cattle still remain , and it is from here , on our doorstep that we get the excellent toma Mottarone , fresh ricotta cheese and  butter with the fragrance of mountain herbs which we proudly offer  our guests on the breakfast table , to entice them to discover our territory . But not only that ! At the bed and breakfast you will find :

- Tours organised by Francesco, our local hiking guide , including tours customised  to the needs of our guests .

- A small library specialising in tourism and hiking , with numerous brochures and maps.

- Information : where to buy the typical products of our region ? where to rent mountain bikes ? where you can taste typical dishes ? Do not forget ... , Armeno is a country of chefs !

The active holiday

The active holiday -

The active holiday is made for fun and learning , observation and respect for the environment , interaction and exploration. It involves you physically and / or mentally, you connect with yourself and with your surroundings .It creates awareness and, by its very nature is environmentally sustainable.

It is about "experiencing" ... looking at the quality and not the quantity of stimuli and emotions.

Choosing a stay in a bed and breakfast means going to the house of those who live in the area you are visiting. Every home is unique, as is every person who lives there , as is each of our guests . We believe that the meeting between land and people is a unique opportunity for growth, learning and sharing .

We look forward to you visiting our house and visiting Lake Orta , one of the cleanest and most beautiful lakes in Italy, a place where it is easy to be an active tourist …to enjoy nature … to walk … to play your  favourite sport … to relax and meditate.
