    Luxurious ambiance
    Elegant design
    High-end service

In the small village of Pettenasco -  on the eastern shore of Italy's Lago d'Orta - is located in a picturesque private bay Laqua by the Lake. With a 180-degree view of the silvery lake, this is a unique place where you can completely relax and enjoy the impeccable service and gastronomic offer that this resort offers. Laqua by the Lake is owned by celebrity chef Antonino Cannavacciuolo who oversees the cool restaurant that serves daily breakfast (included in the price), lunch or dinner.

The modern and elegant suites are furnished with designer furniture, a soft palette of colors, and luxurious natural materials - travertine floors, marble, stone, and locally sourced wood - that blend beautifully with the environment.  The suites vary in size, but all have an attractive living room with a beautiful designer kitchen, one or two bedrooms, and luxurious bathrooms with a walk-in shower, bathrobes, and Etro care products. Some suites have a private balcony overlooking the lake, while others have direct access to the garden, the perfect choice for families. Even more special are the exclusive penthouses, with a large private terrace with a jacuzzi from which you are treated to breathtaking panoramas.

On the edge of the lake is a stunning heated infinity swimming pool, equipped with a sun terrace with luxury sunbeds and a small private beach where you can feel the sand between your feet. In addition, there is a beach club with many activities for active guests, such as water skiing, wakeboarding, or paddle boarding on the lake, while for the little ones, there are activities in the pool. For a relaxing afternoon, book a massage or spa treatment in the wellness area.

But there is more to do. You can rent the e-boat for a family outing on the lake, borrow e-bikes to tour the surrounding hills, stroll through charming Orta San Giulio or take a city trip to Milan or Como. In winter, you can also ski down the slopes of the nearby Monte Mottarone.

On the sunny eastern shore of pristine Lago d'Orta, in the village of Pettenasco, is set Laqua by the Lake. It is located just a few kilometers from the charming romantic town of Orta San Giulio. Orta San Giulio is characterized by cobbled streets and pleasant squares with some terraces and restaurants. The most famous attractions of the village are the 'Sacro Monte' and the island of San Giulio. Apart from a basilica, on the small island, you will find a walking path called 'Via del Silenzio,' which is decorated with aphorisms around the theme of silence and meditation.

Orta's Sacro Monte is a sacred mountain dedicated to Saint Francis of Assisi and is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On the mountain are 20 chapels decorated with frescoes and large painted terracotta statues representing the most important episodes in the life of Saint Francis.

What else can you see and do in the area?

Lago d'Orta is the little brother of the more famous Lago Maggiore, which is only a short drive away. One of the attractions of this lake is the elegant town of Stresa (25 km), which has retained its old-world charm. Boats leave from Stresa to the three beautiful islands that lie in front of Stresa: Isola Superiore, Isola Madre, and Isola Bella.

Driving north from Stresa along the western shore of the lake, you will pass the authentic town of Cannobio and also reach the chic Swiss town of Locarno (63 km from the hotel).

If you're up for a day out in the city, the fashion city of Milan is just 90km away (just over an hour's drive). The charming city of Como (85 km) on Lake Como can also be reached within an hour's drive.

In winter, skiing is possible on the slopes of Monte Mottarone (20 km); in summer, you can hike here with a view of the lakes from the top. More skiing fun can be found in the Alagna Ski Area (75 km), which is about 1.5 hours away.

Milano Malpensa Airport is only 46 km away, and Bergamo Airport is 130 km away.
