: Cannobio - Lago Maggiore
The sunny mountain village Orasso is located at 700m height on the slopes of the very natural-state and partially deep-cut Cannobina Valley, 15 km up from Cannobio at Lake Maggiore. The romantic village has conserved its medieval origin by many granite-shingle roofed houses and 400 years old wall paintings, by small streets and little places. At the village entry there are the parking places, and then crossing the nice piazza you come to the hotel with bar and restaurant, and to the small food shop, where you can by ciabatta rolls each morning. The Cannobina valley is an invitation for everyone who finds recreation by walking and hiking in the loneliness of the mountains, but also for all those seeking a quiet holiday place as starting point for discovering a region full of cultural and scenic attractions. The mild climate is still determined from the Lake Maggiore with its Mediterranean flair and lets grow palms and fig trees in Orasso.
Ski: If you prefer holidays in winter time, you can heat the house effectively and comfortably by means of the modern wood-burning fireplace inserts with extra large window, additionally also with the stand-by catalytic stove, and several carpets on the terracotta floor let you feel a pleasant foot warmth. On the protected balcony you can seat and enjoy the mountain panorama also in sunny winter days. Excursions by foot in the snow are possible in particular on the diverse cleared driving paths. It takes 25 minutes with the car to the winter sport areas in the adjacent Vigezzo Valley, where you find wonderful cross-country ski runs near Santa Maria Maggiore, and nearby a chair lift up to 1700m height with several down-hill runs.
