1) Motorway exit Arona> Borgomanero> Gozzano> San Maurizio d'Opaglio

(at the traffic lights, straight ahead, direction Alzo)> in front of Alzo at the roundabout behind the GIACOMINI factory 2. take the exit> continue for about 2 km> turn left towards Santuario Madonna del Sasso> continue on the very winding road until the fork in the road> here turn right direction Artò on a very winding road> past the church, there is a parking space on the left> take the second street on the left: Via Riotti, drive past the green gate of Casa da Capo at number 12, approx.50 m further to the right is a parking lot for up to 3 vehicles. Here is usually always a place free.

If there is no space available (which is rare), please either park down in front of the church (and then walk up to the house) or further up the village exit (a large car park), and then walk down to the house.
If you arrive by 4x4, please park on the upper or lower parking lot as Via Riotti is too narrow. In this case, to load or unload your baggage or your purchases, you can stop in the small space next to via Riotti (with hazard warning lights, please).

Tips for holidaymakers in Artò

Drive down towards the lake to Alzo.There is a cheap restaurant "Al caffè dell'Osteria" at the city gate of Alzo, with sympathetic cartridge, lunch and dinner menu (around 20 euros including bottled wine and water) and on Saturday even live music. Al fresco. Tel .: +39 377 4730214, +39 0322969882

A small specialty shop with regional delicacies can be found on the edge of the piazza in Alzo. But also for the daily need for bread, rolls, vegetables, salad and fruit, the small shop is recommended. In the summer months you sit on the beautiful piazza in front of it and enjoy a few bites with a glass of Prosecco. You will also find a bank with an ATM, a post office, a pharmacy, a hairdresser and a small privately run hotel.

San Maurizio d'Opaglio

What does not exist in Alzo or Pella, there is in San Maurizio. Ever important: a gas station. And at least as important: in the pharmacy on the piazza in front of the town hall, a very friendly, German-speaking pharmacist works. Of course, there is a post office, a wonderful pasticceria, a small weekly market (always Tuesday in the square in front of the town hall), many restaurants, bars, pizzerias, a Conad supermarket, a well-stocked Enotheka ZOPPIS - which also wonderful olive oil and regional delicacies ( eg handmade chocolate bars from Borgomanero: AUDERE) and a household and hardware store.

original Rustico mit viel Platz

Ein wunderschönes Rustico, mitten im lauschigen Dörfchen oberhalb des Lago d’Orta, mit herrlicher Aussicht über die Dächer bis in die Hügel. Wir haben den Platz im Haus sehr genossen: es ist super geräumig! Und die Küche bietet alles für Hobbyköche. Der verwunschene Garten ist ideal zum Erholen. Wir haben jeden Abend bei Kerzenschein draußen verbracht. Es ist sehr ruhig gelegen, trotzdem ist man mit dem Auto innerhalb kurzer Zeit in den umliegenden Ortschaften und am Seeufer. Elke und ihr Partner waren großartige hosts. Sehr sympathisch, fürsorglich, jederzeit erreichbar. Katharina + Friedrich, Leo und Juna
