Romantic and intimate

Lake Orta is certalny the most romantic location in the Lake District.
Hills and mountains are very close to the Lake thus lending a fairy-tale atmosphere to the villages surrounding the water. Orta San Giulio is at the end of a small peninsula that juts out into Lake Orta. Intricate wrought-iron balustrades and balconies adorn the 18th century buildings of this small, intimate and relaxing town. The main square of the town looks across the lake to the lovely island of San Giulio, which you can reach by boat.

Civil ceremonies can be held outdoor at Villa Bossi and its wonderful terraced garden. Bride arrives on rowing boat and after the ceremony a wonderful walk on narrow paths of the village will lead you to the mains square.
