  • The design of the property
As a child I loved to go in my parent's bedroom, on the second floor of the house, and look out the tiny window. The sight was beautiful, especially in autumn days, at sunset, when the sky is fiery red or when the wind from the mountains of Ossola lash the lake, creating to me as white boats facing a race. Since that time I thought that the window was too small. It was so unfair to the landscape. I said to myself "One day there will be a huge window here because I want to dream more”.

food Many years have passed but finally the dream has come true. Now a large window allows me to enjoy a magnificent view. But why enjoy this just with my family and friends? Anyone who loves nature and the lake should live this emotion! So I opened my house.

Barsot is located in Pettenasco, a small town in the province of Novara that overlooks the shores of Lake Orta (Cusio).

The village is situated along regional road 229, which runs along the eastern shore of the lake, and is just 5 minutes away from Orta San Giulio.

Pettenasco is 87 km away from Milan and 135 km away from Turin, and is easily accessible via the A26 motorway towards Gravellona Toce. From the south, you can take the Arona exit towards Gozzano/Orta (22 km), or from the north, you can take the Gravellona Toce exit towards Omegna/Orta (15 km).

The Bed and Breakfast can be easily reached from the town center by following the signs for the train station and the Pratolungo district.

B&B Il Barsot is a beautiful B&B, quiet yet one can quickly reach the center and the lake. Splendid view and many walking paths nearby. Very nice hosts.

You arrive at B&B Il Barsot and it's already relaxing, the singing of the birds and the chirping of the crickets are the soundtrack. The almost complete view of Lake Orta fills your eyes, the atmosphere is peaceful. The environment is well cared for and neat. The welcome makes you feel like a family member. Availability, kindness, attention, and attention to detail are the characteristics of the fantastic Mrs. Maura, generous with advice on where to eat better, what to see of interest. Very happy to have spent a few regenerating days.

The B&B Il Barsot is in a well-maintained building and the rooms (Emma and Bianca) are clean, well-furnished, and renovated. These communicate with a large veranda/living room used in the morning for breakfast. Spectacular view of the lake from both the rooms and especially from the veranda. The breakfast is abundant and with good and fresh products. The only difficulty was the arrival, as we had to adapt to the host's schedule. Given the panoramic location, to reach the B&B there are winding narrow roads to navigate. We definitely recommend staying at this property.

Beautiful structure, the view from the breakfast room is wonderful, an ideal place to relax and enjoy the lake. The location is very convenient, in 10 minutes you reach Orta San Giulio. What makes this structure even more pleasant is the owner, a lovely and helpful person. The breakfast was perfect, thanks again for the welcome, if we come back to the area we will definitely choose this B&B.

Magnificent guesthouse with a comfort worthy of a grand hotel and the price of a simple hotel. The view from the terrace is stunning and it's hard to take your eyes off it even during breakfast. The owner also speaks good French, which simplifies things. The region is sublime and Orta San Giulio, a 3-minute drive away, is absolutely beautiful. In short, a magical place to recommend without hesitation.

Se volete trascorrere un fine settimana (anche di più se ne avete la possibilità) sul lago d'orta, consiglio caldamente questa struttura. Immersa nel verde, tranquillità, ma sopratutto cortesia e gentilezza fanno di questo B&B un nido in cui rilassarsi, la vista dalla terrazza lascia senza fiato, le camere arredate con gusto sono molto pulite. Frigo Bar in dotazione (non è da tutti). La colazione abbondante e molto varia. Grazie a Maura per la sua disponibilità. Ci torneremo sicuramente. Gigliola e Marco.

Bellissima struttura nel verde a due passi dal paese e dal lago. Ristrutturata recentemente con grande attenzioni per i particolari. Camera molto bella curata nei dettagli e pulitissima. Terrazza a disposizione degli ospiti con vista spettacolare sul lago. Proprietaria gentilissima che ci ha accolto davvero molto bene spiegandoci le varie gite, escursioni da fare sul lago. E ci ha dato degli ottimi consigli per dove cenare la sera. La colazione molto abbondante. Preparata con cura. Tutte cose davvero molto buone.. Insomma non sarei potuta stare meglio.. Ci ritornerò sicuramente.
