Thanks to the quiet beauty of the landscape, its fascinating history and its wealth of artistic treasures - principally Romanesque and Baroque architecture, Lake Orta has long been the destination of poets, artists and writers. Lake Orta lies just west of Lake Maggiore in northern Italy. Far from the chaos and the unpleasant "stress of every-day life", this restful area with its blue water and clean air offers the opportunity to rediscover nature. Mimosas, palms and olive trees abound in this area, as well as Azaleas, Camellias and Rhododendrons. A bit higher up are chestnut forests, and at 500/600 m., oaks and birch trees grow. A vacation in this idyllic lakes region will not be soon forgotten.
