Lovely apartment. Ideal for a young family ky

  • 5 of 5

Pietro and Maria Grazia were the perfect hosts.

My son loved toddling around the large garden, and looking at the chickens.

My wife and I enjoyed the fresh fruit and veggies our hosts so generously supplied, cooked up and eaten outside on the terrace enjoying the balmy Italian summer.

Great location. A lovely find. If you want a base to explore and he Otalan lakes from you could do far worse.

We had a great family holiday made all the more so my our lovely hosts.

Bob, Alex and (of course) Patrick Coles.

Fantastic week long stay at beautiful Lake Orta

  • 5 of 5

We happened by chance to decide to travel and stay at Lake Orta. Boy, are we very glad that we did. Pietro and Marie have provided a wonderful apartment with a large terrace , lovely views from each room and beautifully furnished. The apartment is set on the hills just above Lake Orta but within easy distance to all required facilities such as supermarket and train. The apartment is set in a beautiful little ground with little fruit trees. Highlights included just relaxing on the terrace in the late afternoon whilst watching the sun shimmer of the waters of the lake and the mounatins behind. We have been traveling through Europe for 8 months and this truly is one of the best places we stayed in , if not the best! If you want to go to see another lake , then Stresa is only 20 minutes away by car – but why bother- Lake Orta truly is a gem and staying at Pietros and marie’s apartment was wonderful.

Excellent accueil et gite tout neuf très agréable!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été très très bien accueillis par Pietro et sa femme qui sont d'une gentillesse exceptionnelle tout en étant d'une grande discrétion!

Leur gite, séparé de leur maison, se situe dans leur grand jardin dont nous avons pu goûter les fruits et légumes grâce à la gentillesse de nos hôtes qui nous ont donnaient des corbeilles entières!

Nous sommes un jeune couple avec un petit garçon de 17 mois et la location était idéale pour notre petite famille: très propre, très grande, très bien équipée, refaite à neuf, au calme et avec une grande terrasse à la vue superbe pour profiter de la soirée une fois le petit couché!

Les nombreux jeux pour enfants mis dans le gite et les petits animaux que Pietro et sa femme (adorables avec les enfants (et les parents!)!) ont montré à notre petit garçon l'ont enchanté!

Quant à la région, très belle découverte, nombreuses baignades dans le lac d'Orta mais aussi dans le lac Majeur qui est très près (30 min de route), et nous avons aussi profité de la proximité de Milan (1h15 de route) pour aller visiter cette célèbre ville. Les paysages et le climat de cette région nous ont charmé et nous y reviendrons certainement.

Nous conseillons donc fortement cette location qui est un excellent rapport qualité/prix.

Excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passe un excellent séjour dans ce gîte ou nous nous sommes tout de suite sentis comme à la maison. L'accueil de Pietro et Grazie est extraordinaire, d'une très grande gentillesse. Ils sont discrets et disponibles à la fois. Notre fils de 3 ans était ravi de voir des animaux.

Le gîte est vraiment très bien , grand, récent , très propre, bien équipé et la terrasse est top avec un superbe vue sur le lac.

La localisation du gîte est bien: 20 minutes à pied de la plage du lac d'Orta, proche également du lac majeur, proche d'une station ou on peut faire de la luge sur rail...

Nous avons passé une très très bonne semaine.

Merci encore une fois Pietra et Grazie.

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une trés agréable semaine. La maison est grande et bien équipée. La grande terrasse avec vue sur le lac est super. Bonne situation également, à 5 minutes du lac dOrta et de sa plage, et 30 minutes de Stresa pour la navigation sur le lac Majeur.

Toller Urlaub in einer sehr schönen Wohnung bei sehr netten Gastgebern

  • 5 of 5

Beim Ankommen waren wir sehr positiv überrascht, wie gross und hell die Wohnung ist. Das Schlafzimmer war wirklich ausladend gross und auch die Wohnküche und der Balkon liessen nie ein Gefühl von Enge aufkommen. Alles war sehr (!) sauber geputzt und die Küche lud geradezu zum Kochen ein, wovon wir dann auch ausgiebig Gebrauch machten. Einzig an das Geräusch des (einige Male auch nachts) vorbeifahrenden Güterzuges mussten wir uns etwas gewöhnen, aber das war schon bald kein grösseres Problem mehr. Das Ehepaar Strola war zu jeder Zeit äusserst nett und hilfsbereit und versorgte uns regelmässig mit leckeren Erzeugnissen aus ihrem üppigen vor dem Haus liegenden Obst- und Gemüsegarten. Das Haus liegt wirklich in einer sehr grünen, schönen und ruhigen (wenn man vom Zug mal absieht) Gegend am Rand von Orta San Giulio. Das besondere Highlight für unsere sechsjährige Tochter waren nartürlich die vielen (Streichel-)Tiere, darunter junge Kaninchen, Katzen und sogar frisch geschlüpfte Hühnchen. Alles in allem ein wirklich gelungener Urlaub. Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder!
