BUT the best bit is the wonderful terrace and view directly over Lake Maggiore. Gabriella is the most charming and helpful owner who lives in the apartment below. You can walk into the town but it is a good half hour downhill and more uphill home. Just get a taxi home it is worth it.

The villa is a delight, with a beautiful garden on the edge of the lake and breathtaking views from the flat. The stairs are good for the heart and legs and the village (less than five minutes' walk) a treasure. Facilities are excellent. I would have given five stars had the little quirks not stopped it from being absolutely perfect. There is a tiny garage (for a very small car) and the kitchen is on the stairwell which doesn't really matter but is a bit unusual. Very clean, very quiet and the perfect place to get away from it all and fully absorb the beauty of Lake Orta and the Italian Lakes. Thank you Stefano - we will be back!!

It was clean and fitted out to a good standard. A key-safe would have been useful rather than having to meet people on arrival and departure, especially when you're driving and have no idea when you might arrive! An ironing board and a fan would also be a good idea. A few basic staples on arrival would have been welcome e.g. milk, bread etc. Unlimited wi-fi would be much more useful than the limited one actually available. Overall, though, it was a very good place to stay - but don't expect anyone to speak any English in the vicinity.
