Great location for a wedding
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.
A beautiful apartment overlooking the main square of Orta San Giulio
Immaculately presented apartment with a real home away from home feel. Fabulous location. Very highly recommended
Elegant apartment with stunning views
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Orta San Giulio. The apartment was elegant, comfortable and very well equipped and the views directly across to Isola di San Giulio were quite magical. On our arrival we were warmly greeted by Alfio, who guided us to the private parking space a short distance away (a real benefit, as parking is at a premium) and then showed us around the apartment. Being in the centre of Orta San Giulio we felt part of local life and from the window we watched the weekly market in full swing, some musicians playing and even a wedding party taking place in the square below. We also loved watching the sun going down and, as night fell, seeing the twinkling lights from Isola di San Giulio reflected in the lake. This is not the average rental property and we felt as if we were staying in someone's private home. The town itself is very pretty with some good restaurants, boutiques and artisan shops selling, amongst other things, delicious cheese, olives and chocolates. A lovely experience, and we would highly recommend this property.
Romantic hideaway right in the centre of things with fabulous views.
We spent our Wedding Anniversary here in this absolute gem of an apartment - so much attention to detail, high quality and every comfort with stunning views.
The only downside is that, due to ZTL restrictions, the parking is a 10 minute walk from the apartment & then there are two flights of stairs within the building, so our advice is to travel light as you would not want to miss this fantastic place. (We were told that we could park outside but having been stung with heavy ZTL fines before, we did not want to take the risk as there are many traffic cameras, but that would be your decision to make.)
The views and location could not be better and the apartment had the amazing mix of total privacy but feeling you were in the centre of things and could absorb the wonderful atmospheres - either the tranquility of the early morning or the buzz of the tourists and the activity of the ferries. A truly wonderful experience - we will definitely return!
Appartement d’exception pour profiter d’Orta et de sa région
Nous avons été enchantés de notre séjour de 4 nuits à Orta. Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Alfio (directement au parking, qui est indispensable pour séjourner à Orta. Ce parking n’est pas très loin de l’appartement). L’appartement est sur la place de la ville et a une vue superbe sur l’île de San Guilio, grâce à ses trois belles fenêtres en façade. L’appartement est très confortable, très propre et bien équipé. La décoration est très raffinée (avec des détails carrément luxueux que l’on trouve rarement dans des locations). La chambre donne sur l’arrière de l’appartement et est donc très calme, avec une bonne literie. Il y a peu de magasins sur place pour faire ses courses et il vaut mieux faire un stop à quelques km pour le ravitaillement, les supérettes sont suffisamment nombreuses. Orta vaut vraiment le voyage et cet appartement est sans doute un des meilleurs choix disponibles sur place. Merci encore pour l’accueil sympathique !
Bel appartement vue magnifique.
