The B&B between Lake Orta and Mottarone

Immersed the countryside and off the usual tourist circuit, but still only a stone's throw away from Lake Orta and Mt. Mottarone - our family Bed and Breakfast is an ancient farmhouse, recently renovated, with a captivating view of the lake and surrounding hills. The area is sunny and quiet, surrounded by beach and chestnut trees, and high on the hill to welcome lots of natural light. It's the ideal base for exploring Orta, from calm, relaxing walks to long hikes through the wilderness with Francesco, a qualified walking and trekking guide for Piedmont.

The environment is welcoming and familiar. We have three double rooms, two of these with the possibility of an additional bed. We are equipped to accommodate children and your pets are also welcome...

We look forward to welcoming you!

This unpaved road may be difficult for low-deck cars, and we recommend everyone to drive slowly - this is a natural, peaceful area where cars and speed unfortunately do not dominate!

Natural life, slow tourism and ecology

With more than 500 km of walking paths and trails, the area surrounding Lake Orta is best discovered on foot or by mountain bike. It's a natural environment still intact, preserving many traces of past activity. Following them, you will discover ancient villages that bear witness to the great skill of our ancestors in the working of stone and wrought iron. In the woods you will see the terraces that were used for the cultivation of rye and vines, as well as the chestnut trees and the charcoal burners. Going up to Mottarone you will encounter numerous lush pastures, where each year, in times past, local families went together with their cattle to spend the summer season. Many cattle still remain, and it is from here, on our doorstep, that we get the excellent toma Mottarone, fresh ricotta cheese and butter with the fragrance of mountain herbs which we proudly offer our guests on the breakfast table. But not only that! At the Bed and Breakfast you will find:

- Tours organised by Francesco, our local hiking guide, including tours customised to the needs of our guests.

- A small library on tourism and hiking, with numerous brochures and maps.

- Any additional information: where can you find the typical products of our region? Where can you rent mountain bikes? Where can you taste typical dishes? Do not forget... Armeno is a town of chefs!

The active holiday

The active holiday is made for fun and learning, observation and respect for the environment, interaction and exploration. It involves you physically and/or mentally, allowing you to connect with yourself and with your surroundings. It creates awareness and, by its very nature, is environmentally sustainable.

It is about "experiencing"... looking at the quality and not the quantity of stimuli and emotions.

Choosing to stay in a bed and breakfast means going to the house of those who live in the area you are visiting. Every home is unique, as is every person who lives there, as is each of our guests. We believe that the meeting between land and people is a unique opportunity for growth, learning and sharing.

We look forward to you visiting our house and visiting Lake Orta, one of the cleanest and most beautiful lakes in Italy, a place where it is easy to be an active tourist… to enjoy nature… to walk… to play your favourite sport… to relax and meditate.
