Hotel San Rocco

Italian Lakes, Lake Orta

  • 5 Minute walk from the village centre of Orta San Giulio
  • Panoramic restaurant overlooking beautiful Lake Orta

Hotel San Rocco enjoys a glorious location on the lakefront in the picturesque village of Orta San Giulio, with only a five-minute walk to the pedestrianised Piazza Motta.

A former monastery dating back to the 17th century, Hotel San Rocco is furnished throughout to a high standard with guest rooms tastefully decorated in neutral tones and pastel shades. Caring for the environment the Hotel San Rocco has had an innovative catalytic burner installed, to produce thermal energy production with zero emissions.

One of its highlights is the garden terrace, which leads right down to the shore. San Rocco Terrace is also home to culture and gastronomy events, and for the last three years has housed The Artist in the Villa exhibitions.

During the day, the swimming pool provides a relaxing setting from where you can gaze out onto the lake, or find some shade in the ancient cloisters and surround yourself with over 400 years of history. As the sun sets, order a refreshing drink from the hotel’s Bar Mezzaluna, and sit back with those peaceful views over towards the island of San Giulio. More lake views can be enjoyed whilst dining at the hotel’s restaurant, whose menu has a good reputation. There are a range of sports facilities nearby including golf, riding and waterskiing.

Citalia recommends the lovely Hotel San Rocco for its tranquil position, character and style. It is an inspiring retreat that graces the shores of picturesque Lake Orta. For added freedom and flexibility we recommend car hire.

The hotel has 80 rooms (official rating 4 star). Child prices apply to 2-12 years.

About the location
Orta San Giulio enjoys a privileged location on Lake Orta's most prominent peninsula, moments from Isola San Giulio. Lake Orta is one of the region’s best-kept secrets, so you’ll find Orta San Giulio to be pleasingly calm, despite its beauty. Cluttered around a tiny harbour, the town is made up of just a few streets, packed with colourful fishing houses and backed by the verdant hillside. 

Top of the sightseeing list for most visitors is the breathtaking Isola San Giulio – a tiny offshore island decorated with palaces and church buildings. Measuring just 900 feet by 450 feet, this beautiful island is dominated by a 12th-century Romanesque basilica, and can be reached easily by boat. 

One of the town’s lesser-known delights is the extraordinary UNESCO-listed Sacro Monte di Orta – a sacred Roman Catholic complex made up of more than 20 chapels. Situated high above the town, this is one of a number of such complexes found throughout the region.
Transfer time
Orta San Gulio is 40 miles from Malpensa airport. We recommend hiring a car in your destination. Simply call us once you’ve completed your booking and we will talk you through the options.
