Mr Alfio was waiting for us when we arrived 4 hours late due to flight problems. He gave us a guided tour of the flat and its facilities including how to reset the power should it go off.
The apartment is decorated and furnished to a very high standard. It is on the second floor overlooking the square and lake. You have to be quite fit as there is an entrance door from the square, followed by a side entrance door to the stairway with a light switch to the side it is very dark if you miss the lights. Orta is a great location with trips on the lake great fun. We took part in a wedding conducted at the town hall with interpreter . It Started a 3:30 and ended at 1:30 the next day at various locations along the lake. Everyone was helpful during our stay from the taxi transfers to the water transport staff, shop keepers and restaurant staff. The area is more expensive than further south. A trip up the hill behind the village is worth while as 21 chapels dedicated to St Francis of Assisi are set is nice parkland. Away from the lake paths and roads are very steep. If you drive the access roads are extremely narrow. A car does allow trips to other Lakes and into the mountains. Beware of biting insects in the evening if sitting by the lake.
