Apartment Venere at Orta San Giulio


Free wifi internet in Venere  free internet access in this apartment

We are delighted to offer Venere, one of two stunning two-bedroom apartments in Piazza Motta, the main square of Orta San Giulio.  The apartment enjoys stunning views of the piazza and Island of San Giulio from the very spacious living room.

Venere is on the third floor, and sleeps 6 adults in comfort in one double bedroom, one twin bedroom, plus a double sofabed in the living room.  The other apartment in the same building is Giove, which has an identical layout and is on the floor below.

Live in the heart of Orta San Giulio

Venere is in the main square of Orta San Giulio, so you are right among the cafes, shops and restaurants - and some superb gelaterias.  You will find it enchanting just to watch the Italian way of life, whether from your living room, or from strolling around this wonderful village.  There is also Ortello beach in walking distance, and you can take a dip in many places around the Orta pensinsular.  As Holiday Homes at Lake Orta clients, you get 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 4 walks in your location pack to get you started, three of these start from your front door!), and many sporting and other local activities are available.
