A lovely, functional and comfortable vacation home, built only a few years ago, Cas’Allegra is located in Orta-Legro, a small outlying hamlet at about 1,5 Km away from the main town of Orta San Giulio, a lake resort indicated on the tourist guides as one of the 85 Italian towns member of the “Association of Painted Villages”. On the walls of the buildings one can admire the most significant photograms signed by Italian and foreign artists showing the numerous films set along the shores of the Lake of Orta, within a very special open air “Museum of the Cinema”.
The house is situated at about 150 m. from the original main square, where the local granite stone and the beautiful iron works blend perfectly in with the ancient lavatory and the little church dating back to the ‘700, built on a lovely and quiet space exposed to the sun all day long.
Surrounded as it is by several private homes and parks and gardens the area is ideal for peaceful and relaxing walks amongst the greenery. The easy access to transportation facilities and the tranquillity of a place far from the congested city trafic makes this a lovely corner of paradise with all the comforts we are accustomed to. The property is accessible through a pedestrian gate and an automatic driveway leading to a 75 sq.m. totally paved private courtyard with the main entrance to the house; open air parking spaces for 3 cars and a 1-car private garage. Cas’Allegra is luminous, sunny and quiet, the furniture is new, carefully maintained and comfortable, all of which make for a warm and hospitable environment. Within easy reach are: a medical ambulatory, a pediatrician’s, a food market, a tobacconist, a newspaper stand, a pub, a snack bar, a playground, the railway station, the bus and taxi stop. Small pets are allowed.
