We had a brilliant two weeks at Villa Guardia. The accommodation had everything you needed and the gardens were a lovely place to relax. Greg and Francesca were the perfect hosts, really helpful and there when you needed them but never intrusive. Would thoroughly recommend Villa Guardia and we hope to return one day.
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.
