Subject: Lodgings in Piemonte, Italy
If you have a car, consider Lago de Orta. Still close enough to motorways to get around the rest of the region, BUT, I bet you wont want to go anywhere else once you set sight on this place. We didn't go anywhere for three days, just sat in the piazza looking out across the lake to the island. Look at the first site: the photograph on the left is from a side street, across the edge of the piazza and across the water to the island. The photo on right is the island.

I shouldn't have opened up these sites. Now we are going to have to go back there next year. Cheers Gavin (Sydney, Australia)
