Welcome to Bed & Breakfast La Pescia

Placed on the picturesque Lago d'Orta shores, in San Maurizio d'Opaglio, in the district of Novara, B&B La Pescia greets you!

If you are looking for some peace and quiet, if you have been pursuing the dream of a pure and relaxing holiday for a long time, our place could be perfect for you.

Absorbed in an uncontamined nature, our bed and breakfast has in itself the promise of a meeting with a landscape ready to hail you in all its beauty.
The enchanting panoramic view you are going to catch sight of, we are sure of it, will not disappoint you. Here, the sun and the moon incessantly vie for riflect on a lake that makes itself a mirror for them, offering a very special sight with a poetic and almost contemplative contour: we leave to you the pleasure to discover the fascinating chromatic changes that can be seen during the various seasons!

Varied species of birds, such as magpies, cockooes, swallows and sparrows, are the most assiduous inhabitants of this place. The luckiest guests could also have the opportunity to see a squirrel that hurries jumping from branch to branch, or a lonely roe that lurks in the wood.

We offer three pretty double bedrooms to our guests, each provided with private bathroom, satellite TV, hi-fi, a little balcony with a panoramic view on the Lake, floor heating and refreshment adjustable system. Breakfast, prepared with home-made products (mostly packaged in this area),is hearty and genuine.

Among the services we offer, you will find a little outdoor pool and a wide reading room, where to read, talk or simply rest. Shed in the house you could admire some little crafts masterpieces shaped by the skilled blacksmiths Giulio and Mario Alessi, such as the spiral staircase in the common room and the railings that decorate the entrance stair and the external courtyard.

To the guests animated by an intrepid passion for exploration, the area offers pretty destinations also reachable by feet; the opportunity to make pleasant walks in the neighbourhood could make courious even the most lazy holiday-makers.
Next to our B&B, for example, you can find the pretty fountain of San Giulio with its small church and, going on over it, through a path dipped in the wood, it is possible to reach the lake, to coast its shores and to stop by some little beaches.

The Lago d'Orta area then offers to its tourists a lot of fun possibilities; almost in each season of the year there is the possibility to take part in town festivals: for what concerns summertime, very popular are for example the celebrations in honour of patron saint of Omegna, San Vito, that take place in the district of Verbania at the end of August, or the country fairs in lot of little towns (Prerro, Pogno, Alzo and many more); during the autumn you could take advantage of the various chestnut fairs that take place in the towns during the months of October and November, or of the Festa dellíUva ('Grapes Party') in Borgomanero between September and October. Quite close to us there is then Mottarone, the so-called 'mountain of the two lakes', that offers pretty summer walking tours, as well as skiing facilities during the winter, or the near Lago Maggiore or the various Sacred Hills, such as Orta or Varallo. For more detailed informations, however, we refer to the Links page, where you can find all the necessary informations.

Our daily frame of mind have always been animated by a philosophy that loves appreciating one of the most important things the man could admire: nature and its splendours.
From nature to the nature, La Pescia was in fact born together with a strong ideal, that of the respect for environment.
