“Doesn't get much better!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

If your looking out for accommodation right on Lake Orta be sure to make this your stop. Villa Pinin is simply amazing and combined with all the comforts you'd expect and a terrific host Mariagrazie you can't go wrong. The rooms are very comfortable and depending on which room you book you may have lovely views to the lake. So well located and only a short walk to the village. We had a fabulous two day stay. Mariagrazie made us feel so welcome and at home. Check it out!

We attended Lake Orta as my best friend was getting married and we decided to book outside of Orta itself so we could relax during our 4 night stay.

Upon arrival at Villa Pinin, (once we had parked our mafia sized car on the driveaway!) the welcome was wonderful. Mariagrazia was very welcoming and apologised for her 'bad' English. She spoke very good English!

Our room was the Green room which looked out over Lake Orta itself. A stunning view. Everything was well maintained, new and clean and our room cleaned down daily too.

A quick trek ... 10 mins walk into town in the day/20 mins back in the dark ... take a little torch if you take the lake path on the way back! proved very pleasant. We are very glad we stayed at Villa Pinin as it was so quiet and peaceful.

The breakfast was very good and fresh & the other guests were a pleasure to meet. The little beach at the bottom of the hill proved to be wonderful a place to chill and dip and chill and dip. The weather was glorious while we were there and we are planning on bringing our children back for long weekends as trip from door to door (Brighton to Orta) was approx. 5 hours.

All in all, we HIGHLY recommended Villa Pinin.

p.s. If you see a petite lady on a Harley ... that is Mariagrazia. She is a legend!

We stayed at Villa Pinin in June 2013 and loved the location. After enjoying our delicious Italian meals it is great to stroll peacefully through town or along the lake back to Villa Pinin which is like coming back to your own home. It is a spacious modern home with an outdoor terrace view across the lake in a very quiet neighbourhood. There were 3 in our party so it was perfect for us to share the one bathroom between the two rooms. The red room was used as a single but can be a twin and we had the blue room which had a double bed and had access to a balcony. Noise (ie the plumbing) between all 4 rooms/the house can be an issue but nothing that earplugs won't fix. The hostess Maria-Grazia is extremely hospitable, welcoming and goes out of her way to ensure that you are comfortable, picks you up and even will take you to the nearby railway station. The only enhancement we could suggest would be a small mini bar fridge for guest use. Whilst Maria-Grazia insisted we could use her fridge we just would have felt less intrusive.

We really liked it here. We spent a couple of days here and it was perfect for us.
The romantic lake is a stone throw away and the village a lovely 10 minute walk right next to the lake. The owner was very helpfull, our green room large and the breakfast with home baked bread delicious.

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Pinin. It's a fairly modern Italian house with 4 rooms to rent. It's a 10 minute scenic walk to the charming center of town, Orta San Giulio, which has several restaurants.

Choose your room carefully. They are priced appropriately for their views and bathroom situations. One room has a view only of the adjacent abandoned partially built hotel. I think the other 3 have some degree of lake views. Only 1 room has an en-suite bath; the others require you to walk through the house to use the bathroom and 2 rooms share one bathroom, with hall entry adjacent to room doors. The rooms are designated by color, so ask enough questions that you know what you're getting.

Mariagrazia encourages guests to use the open living room and patio area, both of which have Great Lake views. Wifi available everywhere. Overall a good value and really pleasant stay.

Wonderful stay, stunning views, quiet, very clean, good breakfast, gracious hostess, everything you need to unwind from the stresses of the daily grind. Stayed in early April 2013, season not really underway yet but found everything we needed was easily available in Orta which is about a 10 minute stroll from the Villa.Would like to re visit in season as weather a little chilly but the Vila was nicely heated.

Room Tip: If required request the en suite rooms as otherwise its short walk across the hall/living room &...

We stayed with Mariagrazia in September 2012. She was a perfect hostess, and Villa Pinin is a wonderful B&B. Very convenient to Orta, and in a beautiful location. Orta is a fascinating and historic town. Don't bother with Como. Spend at least 3 days, as we found 2 days too short and left for the rest of our trip reluctantly. Highly recommended.
