About Lake Orta: Lake Orta, the ancient “Cusius” is an oasis of alpine greenery enriched with marvellous gardens and green meadows in a Mediterranean climate. Lake Orta really is a 'man-sized lake' because, with a local writer’s words, it can 'be embraced at a single glance'. From the many balconies overlooking it, from one shore and from the other, Cusio offers the visitor the gift of a great, soft beauty which calls to contemplation, to the stopping of time in a place one would wish never to leave. But Lake Orta, with its un-doubtful tourist vocation, will also offer you any kind of amusements and sports lovers will also be able to practice all water sports (sailing, surfing, canoeing, water-skiing, etc.), horse-riding, golf and tennis.
Eating out: This is such a delight in Italy, and Lake Orta is no exception. There is a wide range of pizzerias, trattorias and restaurants for varying pockets and tastes, starting about 500m from Casa Frey. Milan, the nearest major city is 80 km away, Lake Maggiore is 25 km away and Malpensa airport 45 km.
Walks: There are many beautiful walks in the area. We provide a description of walks, excursions and one-day trips. About 100 yards from the house, the parish church of St. Antonio affords, from its grassy terrace, a fine view of Lake Orta with its enchanting island and the 13th century Torre di Buccione.
Lake Orta is the most enchanting lake in Northern Italy thanks to the quiet beauty of the landscape, its fascinating history and its wealth of artistic treasures. The small village of Vacciago is only 5 km from Orta, the little 'capital' of the lake and 25 km from Stresa and Lake Maggiore. Casa Frey is a very good base to explore all the lakes area. Lake Orta offers a truly Italian experience. It has retained its spirit and you will be captivated.
