Beautiful apartment and garden in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's third visit to Orta San Giulio in the past few years and we again had an amazing time. If you have not been to Orta before, it is an incredibly beautiful lake and the village is unforgettable. The best thing about Orta is that it is still relatively unknown compared to the other more famous and larger lakes and hence it is more relaxed with less tourist traffic. It is hard to beat sitting in the Piazza on a warm evening looking over the lake to Isola San Giulio with a glass of spritz, wine or beer and watching the sun set over the hills. There is also a great selection of restaurants and wine bars etc.

Our trip was made even more special by Stefano's wonderful apartment. It sits on the third floor and has incredible lake views, It is very spacious and was clean and well presented. The garden was wonderful and sits right on the water. It's a great place to spend an afternoon enjoying the sun or sitting in the shade under the tree. While the garden is shared with the 2nd floor apartment, we never saw the other tenants in the two weeks we were there. The kids also loved it as they were able to jump off the terrace on top of the boat house, directly into the lake. The apartment is within a short walk to the main Piazza but is also very quiet in the evening. Stefano met us at the apartment and was a warm and friendly host and we were very appreciative of the bottle of Prosecco he left as a gift at the start of our visit.

Overall, we would highly recommend the apartment due to its proximity to the centre of the village (about 200m), its great overall condition and spaciousness and its position right on the lake (which is rare).

Serenity by the beautiful Lake Orta

  • 5 of 5

This lovely character home was a delight. We were surprised by the space and enjoyed waking to the beautiful lake views from our bedroom windows. It was very hot when we stayed, cooling off in the lake from the boathouse was wonderful. Spending time in the garden over a long lunch and a good bottle of wine was the thing to do! I highly recommend this property, Stefano was a thoughtful host , we appreciated the wine and chocolates and the lift to the station very much.

An amazing villa on Lake Orta that is possibly the most beautiful lake I have ever seen.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is lovely, the lake is beautiful and Stefano is an extraordinary host. He gave us so much information about local restaurants, local shops and things to do in the area, The apartment is very large with lots of natural light and breathtaking views of the lake. We enjoyed the beautiful garden and the terrace above the boat house but especially enjoyed swimming in the lake. We were so sad to leave this lovely apartment and the wonderful people of Orta San Giulio. We will be back next year!

Beautiful flat with peaceful garden & lake access

  • 5 of 5

It was a privilege to be staying in such a beautiful and homely apartment, in a historic and picturesque location. We heeded the advice of other reviewers and hired a small car for us and our 3 children which fitted in the garage. The accommodation had everything we needed, and a well equipped kitchen. Stefano kindly showed us around when we arrived and checked we were okay later in the week. Blessed with glorious weather, so spent much of our time in the garden, swimming in the lake and eating lunch al fresco, and the children were very happy. The view was superb. It was a short walk into town for ice cream, and we followed some of Stefano's good suggestions for places to eat and the local cheese shop. We did some gentle sightseeing from the flat, including locally by boat and on foot.

Fantastic old villa but guests should not expect luxury accommodation.

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful situation and so enjoyed the garden on shore of Lake Orta. Short walk into San Guilio for breakfast, many restaurants and boutique shops. Ideal centre for exploring area and walking. Not too commercialised. We loved it and had a very happy stay 14 May for a week.

Owner's Response: Hi Jackie! It was a pleasure to meet you and your family, and we are happy to hear that you enjoyed staying with us. Regarding the house, you are right, it is not a luxury accommodation. It has been our family retreat for five generations, and still is. It is full of history and memories. We provide all modern comforts to ourselves and to our guests, while maintaining its character and spirit of a simple, old villa. We love and tend it, and we try to meet all our guests in person. We hope to host you again one day!

Beautiful and well-situated family home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a wonderful sunny afternoon and almost immediately spent the rest of the day in the beautiful garden overlooking Lake Orta!!! We were welcomed by Stefano (the owner) upon arrival, he had already sent us several messages before we left for Italy to ensure that we arrived in one piece and with minimal hassle! He was a great host and always available on the phone if we had any questions about the house or places to visit.

We were slightly unlucky with the weather in the middle of our stay as we visited in April so we ended up doing some shopping also - there are plenty of places within driving distance to do so. When the sun was out, we managed to take our children to a local beach area which was very relaxing and safe, we also simply walked around to take in the fresh air and holiday atmosphere!

Food is not a problem in Italy although eating out in the local town can be expensive. We made use of the apartment kitchen which had great facilities as well as visited nearby towns like Stressa which had a larger variety of restaurants and things to do also. We also took the boat ride in Stressa to visit two of the small islands in Lake Maggiore and really enjoyed that.

The local town is quaint and nice to walk through. We also found plenty of places to have gelato (!) and we also enjoyed visiting the church at the top of a steep road off the main square as well as a small church which faced the lake and many visitors would sit outside to enjoy the view.

On our last day Stefano made some enquiries about the cable car service in Stressa and we ended up driving back to Stressa and visiting the snow-capped mountains and having lunch there before we headed back to the UK. The children really enjoyed the snow and going on the cable cars and chair lifts!

So for anyone wanting a quiet place to stay with a wonderful garden and view then this place is perfect as it's also within easy driving distance of other towns and attractions - but be sure to have a car as the local town is nice but a bit small and you may want to visit more places if you're there for more than a weekend I imagine.

Stefano and his family have been renting their home for a long time (you can read the guest book with lots of positive messages from families/visitors from many countries!) and it's wonderful to stay in a home where we felt extremely welcome and our young children also felt as if they were free to enjoy their time there. Many thanks Stefano and family...!
