A charming place to stay on beautiful Lake Orta
We loved every minute of our stay at Pietro and Maria's apartment. The property is set in a beautiful orchard and just up the hill from Orta San Giulio (it was an easy 25 min walk to the centre). The place was spotless and whilst simple, had everything you could possibly need for your stay. The terrace at the back is huge and has the most wonderful views. The highlight though had to be our hosts who went above and beyond to make our stay special, with deliveries of home grown fruit and veg from the garden (delicious) and all the information we could need for our stay. We just hope that our very basic Italian adequately communicated our appreciation!
Lake Orta itself is breathtakingly beautiful and much quieter than some of the bigger lakes, this was the perfect place to base ourselves (9 nights) to explore the wider areas (including a day trip to Milan, Stresa and hiking in the Alps). We would absolutely recommend the place and the lovely hosts.
We are very happy that our guests have appreciated Casa Canvesa on Lake Orta.
Peaceful and relaxing
We had a fabulous time at Casa Canvesa.
The apartment was clean and in a beautiful location. Pietro and Maria are so kind and helpful. We especially enjoyed the view from the terrace, the tranquillity (the train rumbling past occasionally didn't bother us at all), being 'away from it all' but close enough to go to the lake everyday for a swim, the animals (especially the dog!) and the delicious homegrown fruits & vegetables that our hosts so kindly provided.
There is a little shop about 10 mins walk away that supplied us with all the extras we needed and a fantastic agriturismo restaurant about 15 mins walk away too.
We hope to return some time and would like to thank Pietro and Maria for being great hosts.
Excellent location and perfect property.
Ideal for young families, walking distance to local shop, pub and train station. A few minutes drive from areas of interest.
The hosts Pietro and Maria Grazie are perfect and very hospitable making us feel very welcome indeed.
Lovely apartment. Ideal for a young family ky
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
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.
Sehr schönes Anwesen, einfache Ausstattung, sehr nette Gastgeber
Alles wunderbar, morgens Frühstück auf der Terrasse, in 20 Minuten zu Fuß in Orta San Giulio. Einziges - aber wesentliches - Manko: Das Gebäude liegt keine 10 Meter von der Bahnlinie entfernt. Vor allem nachts treiben lange Güterzüge ihr Unwesen und stören bisweilen die Nachtruhe.
Es tut mir leid, dass meine zwei Gaeste Casa Canvesa gerauschvoll gefunden haben.
In wirklichkeit ist Casa Canvesa 25,5 Meter von der eingleisig Bahnlinie entfernt (siehe Mappe und Foto N. 18). In der Nacht fahren 5-6 Guterzuge.
Tariffe scontate in relazione alla durata. Caparra richiesta alla prenotazione.Il del costo del riscaldamento è compreso nel prezzo. Consegna delle chiavi da parte del proprietario che abita in un'altra casa all'interno della proprietà, distante 40 metri dalla casa vacanze. Il rimanente fabbricato rurale (ristrutturato nelle sue parti più importanti) non è attualmente abitato..
