This wonderful apartment is on the lake side SP229 road on the east side of Lake Orta, close to Omegna.  The windows are double glazed so you don't hear the road.  It's 200 metres south of Borca.  A car is necessary for this apartment.  Parking for 1 or 2 medium-sized vehicles.

Villa Heureka is conveniently situated on the road between Omegna (2 km) and Orta San Giulio (7km).  Omegna is the only town of its size right on Lake Orta, and has everything you could want in terms of cafes, shops, restaurants, pizzerias and banks.  The car-free lake-side village of Orta San Giulio is the centre of the lake from a tourist perspective, and there are regular boat services running between Omegna and Orta San Giulio and other lake-side villages.  Miami beach, with sunbeds, pedalos, canoes, bar and restaurant, is at the south end of the lake, just 10km from Villa Heureka.  This web site has more information on the local area, and suggestions for day trips and activities and sports at Lake Orta.
