About Lake Orta

Lake Orta, a jewel of the Piedmont region and the island of San Giulio, a pearl in the crystalline waters of the lake nestling just a few yards from the charmingly picturesque medieval village of Orta, just waiting to be discovered.
No more than 40 minutes drive from the international airport of Milan Malpensa, an hour from Milan’s city centre and 90 minutes from downtown Turin, Orta offers great sightseeing opportunities.
In a quiet and peaceful area known for the splendid lakeshore flowers and shrubs: mimosa, camelias, azaleas, rhododendron, wisteria, hydrangeas, gardenias, roses and many other gorgeous flowers which, thanks to the excellent microclimate, bloom in colourful succession throughout the season, from early spring to late autumn.

Restaurant La Terrazza


Restaurant La Terrazza 

The restaurant La Terrazza offers regional and international specialities at lunch and dinner in the sunny dining room overlooking the lake or on the flower filled lakeside terrace.

Renowned for the care with which the dishes are presented and prepared, the fine raw materials used and the friendly and professional service, the Ristorante La Terrazza at the Hotel L’Approdo is the perfect choice for a candlelight dinner with fine wines from an excellent selection of labels from Piedmont and all over Italy as well as from other well known wine-producing areas around the world.

You will enjoy the friendly, professional service of the staff, which will discreetly assist and guide so that your choice of dishes and wines is just right and your every need catered to with a smile. 

Every evening the convivial café-wine bar will be a pleasant venue for a last glass of wine, liqueur, exotic cocktail or ice-cold beer. Also, during the summer season every Sunday evening, after a cooling dip in the lake, a swim in the pool or a few hours sunbathing, we hope you will join our local and international guests in a weekly toast: an aperitif in the garden.

Café-Wine Bar


Café-Wine Bar

The café-wine bar is open daily and offers a fine selection of wines by the glass, fine liqueurs and brandies, cocktails and beers, with service in the garden.

This is the only way you can know exactly what room types are available for the dates you want, and the best possible rate, because you are dealing directly with the hotel.
