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 apartment was in a quiet location with lovely views. Beatrice was great with communication from pre booking and throughout. The bus timetable she provided for arrival from the airport was extremely helpful.

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!!
