Giove is in the main square of Orta San Giulio, so you have right on your doorstep everything you could want in terms of cafes, shops, restaurants, a pizzeria, a bank with cash machine, and a choice of no less than four superb gelaterias.

Live in the heart of Orta San Giulio

It's enchanting to watch the Italian way of life, whether from your living room, or from strolling around this wonderful village.  There are beaches nearby, little Ortello beach is walking distance (just 300 metres), and you can take a dip in many places around the Orta pensinsular, and as Holiday Homes at Lake Orta clients, you are entitled to a 25% discount on the entrance to Miami beach, at the south end of the lake, just 10 minutes by car.  There are many places of interest to visit in the local area, lots of places further afield for day trips, and some great walks (we provide a set of walks in your location pack to get you started, most of them start from your front door!), and many sporting and other local activities are available.
