Set on the hill top of the peninsula of Orta San Giulio in the centre of Lake Orta, il Conventino is a 16th Century Monastery that has been a private home since the 1860’s. Beautiful views of San Giulio Island to the west splendid historic building from the 1600s, transformed into a private residence after being lived as a monastery. Surrounded by silence, the building is located in the most dominant area of Lake Orta, facing San Giulio island, clearly visible from the rooms of the property. The property is characterized by the original layout of the internal rooms, divided as the they used to do in the past. This allows today to restructure it by dividing the space into several apartments or to live it as a single. The complex also includes a guest annexe and a spa-wellness area. The architectural details reveal the history of the property, which dates back to the 1600s and needs to be taken up and restored with care to maintain conservation over time. In general, the structure needs to be updated to modern technical, urban-architectural canons in order to maintain the flavor of a historic property on Lake Orta.
