Relais & Chateaux Villa Crespi is located at the entrance of the town of Orta San Giulio, the most renowned village of Lago d’Orta. That is considered one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, characterized by very picturesque narrow streets. One of these leads to the Sacro Monte, a Unesco World Heritage site, with its 20 chapels frescoed by Morazzone. The central street of the village arrives in Piazza Motta. From the main pier several boats leave to the various towns of the lake and to the Island of San Giulio. The small island also named the “Island of silence”.

Lake Orta, or Cusio, is located west of Lake Maggiore, entirely in Piedmont. The eastern side has the gentle slopes of the hills. These highlands separate it from Lake Maggiore. The highest mountain is Mount Mottarone. The western shores are instead more impervious and steep. In other words the hills leave space here in the mountains of Valstrona and nearby Valsesia.
