Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

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.

Highly recommended.

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.

Wunderbarer Urlaub mitten in der Natur

  • 5 of 5

Wer Natur, Landleben und Ruhe sucht ist in diesem typisch piemontischen Landhaus goldrichtig. Mitten in einer Obstplantage, nächste Häuser 150 Meter, liegt diese super geräumige einfach eingerichtete (Küche und Bad aber fast neuwertig) top saubere Wohnung mit 2 Balkonflächen Ost und West für jede Tageszeit, grandioser Blick auf das Berpanorama des Ortasee und durch Bäume den See, mit phantastischen Sonnenuntergängen über den Bergen vom riesigen Abendbalkon aus. Die Vermieter, super nett und zuvorkommend, sprechen teils gut deutsch, und überraschen ihre Gäste immer wieder mit reichlichst frischen Obst und Gemüse aus dem Garten sodass wir an sich kaum einkaufen mussten. Der Service ist einmalig, kostenlose Endreinigung, alles da von Bettwäsche, Handtücher, Waschmaschine bis Essig und Öl, WLAN, TV - Diese Gastgeber denken immer mit, man braucht nur wenig mitbringen. Einziger klitzekleiner Wermutstropfen, liegt an kleiner einspuriger Bahnlinie. Wir haben das angesichts der Abwesenheit jeglichen Autolärms aber vernachlässigt da auch nur punktuell, dazwischen ist einfach himmlischste Ruhe. Bestimmt kommen wir wieder, für uns hat das 150 Prozent gepasst. Der Ortasee mit seinen wenigen Touristen, unglaublich sauberem Wasser und dem wunderhübschen beschaulichen Ort San Giulio ist sowieso ein Geheimtipp für stille Genießer die den Trubel eines Gardasee nicht brauchen. Volle Empfehlung für diesen Urlaubertypus.

Die Ferienwohnung war perfekt. Alles was man brauchte war da.

  • 5 of 5

Die Besitzer der Ferienwohnung ( Maria und Pietro) sind sehr gastfreundlich . Sie haben sich liebevoll um uns gekümmert und Pietro brachte uns immer wieder Früchte aus eigenem Garten. Das Haus war gut eingerichtet mit alles drum und dran. Die Terrasse war wunderbar (vor und hinter dem Haus) mit herrlichen Aussicht. Am Abend wurde es kühler und auch die Heizung funktionierte tadellos. Wir haben unser Aufenthalt sehr genossen und können es bestens empfehlen. WLAN funktionierte am besten auf der Terasse. Als Abschied bekamen wir noch eine Flasche Wein und Kastanien.
