The best view in the world?

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 02-Nov-2009

A little bit of an exaggeration, but the views from the terrace of Villa Gelsomina are truly stunning.
We have now stayed in the Dolce Vita apartment, which is on the top floor of the villa, three times and are returning for a fourth time in the Spring of 2010. The apartment is lovely - clean, well maintained and equipped with everything you will need. William, the owner, is exceptionally friendly and helpful - the information pack that he provides is excellent.
Lake Orta is beautiful and the little town of Orta San Gulio is charming. There is plenty to do and see in the area and there is a wide choice of restaurants to suit every taste and pocket.
What more recommendation can we give than 4 visits in consecutive years - who knows, we might even go twice in 2010!

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 17-Sep-2013
  • Date of Stay: Aug 2013
We had a fantastic two weeks in this lovely apartment. The view is magically and constantly changing with the weather and the light. We managed to drag ourselves away some days and visited Stresa, Milan, Bergamo and Locarno (Switzerland). We used a mix of car, train and boat to get around and spent some days just relaxing by the pool and soaking up the sun and the view. We were extremely lucky with the weather and we still sunbathing at 7.30pm!
William and his team were brilliant and everything you could possibly want to know about the area is in the very comprehensive welcome pack. We were also lucky to share our break with lovely people in the other apartments who were all friendly with being intrusive – swapping stories, hints and tips about our days out.
This is a beautiful peaceful location with stunning views, we will certainly be using it again and I would recommend it without hesitation to anyone who wants a get away from it all holiday. That said it’s only a few minutes by car to local restaurants and bars if you want them.
Thank you William!
Owner's Response: We're delighted you had an enjoyable stay at Villa Gelsomina!

Immaculate, well equipped, peaceful property

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 01-Sep-2013
  • Date of Stay: Aug 2013
The property was immaculate, in terms of comfort, the quality of the fixtures and fittings, and also the standard of upkeep. The location is ideal for those wanting a peaceful environment, accompanied by a great view.

William, the owner, has everything well organised, with an excellent pack covering directions, local guides, and how everything works in the property.

The pool was a good size (c15m), so was good for both cooling off and working off excess pizza!

The property is in a good location - a very straight forward drive from Milan Malpensa, plenty to do locally, and less than an hour from Lake Maggiore etc.
Owner's Response: We're delighted you had a good stay!

Villa Gelsomina - Paradiso

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 25-Jun-2013
  • Date of Stay: Jun 2013
The apartment was great and the description was accurate. The apartment was clean, the bedding, towels etc. were also good. The swimming pool was clean and a good size. The views were amazing. We travelled all around the lake which was an experience, visiting some of the small towns. It was a great location for visiting Lake Maggiore, where we visited the town of Stressa which was amazing. Not to far from Milan Malpensa airport. We were a party of 6 adults and we had a great time. We all would highly recommend these apartments.

Hidden Gem!

  • Review Submitted: 09-Apr-2013
  • Date of Stay: Apr 2013
With gorgeous panoramic ever changing views, the superbly appointed apartment is a real home from home. The attention to detail inside the accommodation makes for a relaxing and comfortable stay. We stayed for one week in April and found Villa Gelsomina a great base for exploring this region of Italy. There is as much or as little as you want to do. From sitting and having a simple meal on the terrace, dining at the one of the pizzerias and restaurants nearby, or driving up to Switzerland for the day. Highly recommended for a great holiday.

Villa Gelsomina is just 3km from the lakeside village of Orta San Giulio, where there are mouth-watering restaurants, cafes, pizzerias, trattorias and gelaterias (particularly good!) catering for all tastes and ages. There is also a great local restaurant in walking distance (400m). Many wonderful day trips can be made in the area, at Lake Orta, Lake Maggiore, and in the mountains. We provide descriptions of a series of favourite local walks, most of which start from your front door! Great beach with all facilities (sunbeds, pedalos, canoes, cafe etc.) at Miami at the south end of the lake, lots of other places to swim. Boat trips on Lake Orta, rowing boats for hire at Orta San Giulio. 1 hour's drive from Milan, just 90 minutes from Turin. Skiing locally on the Mottarone, Val Vigezzo, or Macugnaga.
