The best view in the world?

  • 5 out of 5
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!

Amazing views, clean, easy and convenient

  • 5 out of 5
Orta is a beautiful town and a wonderful base for exploring the lakes. Orta itself is a gem, very beautiful and less busy than the other lakes. This apartment was ideal for us; clean and great value. The most wonderful feature was the balcony where we enjoyed drinks and a few meals looking out across the lake. We hired a car to get around and enjoyed trips to Lake Maggiore. I would also recommend a meal at Villa Crespi - such a treat!

Peaceful, Picturesque, Perfect

  • 5 out of 5
Choosing the tranquil beauty of Lago d’Orta over the more touristy Lago Maggiore was the right decision for us, as was booking stunning Villa Gelsomina with its refreshing pool. Everything is exactly as described and depicted, with Apt. Panorama boasting a wonderful, huge terrace offering plenty of sun as well as shade from morning to sunset and unparalleled views of the lake, Isola San Guilio and majestic Monte Rosa, which are the same from anywhere on the well-maintained and beautifully landscaped property.
Apart from lovely Orta San Guilio at 10 mins., places of interest within a 15 to 90-minute drive are Arona and Stresa with their pleasant lakefront promenades, Como, Milan and Torino, which means that in the course of a few days you can take in three lakes and a lot of culture.
A somewhat hidden gem, though, is Pella on the opposite side of Lago d’Orta with two good restaurants, one a bit rustic and the other one a bit posher, from both of which you can marvel at Villa Gelsomina in its unique hilltop position across the lake.
On top of making sure that his guests feel welome, are provided with all the information they may need and are well taken care of by his team, the owner was very accommodating throughout, even offering a discount to be taken off a future booking for a bad satellite signal during our stay. Thank you very much, William – we will take you up on that one (but would have returned anyway)!

Fabulous Stay

  • 5 out of 5
What an amazing place this is, the views are to die for, the apartment is spotless and has everything you need for a great holiday. The organisation is very professional and nothing is left to chance. The Dolce Vita apartment has a large private sun terrace as well as 3 other small balconies and we could have just stayed there all day.
We cannot praise this place enough, it really is like paradise. thanks again William, we will certainly be back.

Another wonderful holiday in Villa Gelsomina

  • 5 out of 5
We've just retuned from our 8th stay in Villa Gelsomina. We always stay in the Dolce Vita apartment which is on the 3rd floor of Villa Gelsomina and from the terrace there are wonderful views over Lake Orta, its island, the lovely town of Orta san Giulio and the magnificent Monte Rosa. The apartment is always beautifully presented and the owner, William, can never do enough to ensure that we have a wonderful holiday.

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 out of 5
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!

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.
