“The best view we've ever had from a holiday appartment”
Reviewed 5 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The welcome we received on our arrival was second to none and my friend got to practise his Italian immediately.
The appartment is spacious and very well appointed with everything we needed for our stay. The beds are very comfortable and there was plenty of different types of bedding to ensure comfortable nights despite the variable weather. The appartment building is characterful and set in extensive, very well maintained grounds and just a short walk to the lake shore. The view of the lake is glorious!
We found the guides to the local area very useful especially the detailed maps and directions for walks which allowed us to explore the beauty of the area on foot.
The only downside is the busy road close by.

“Perfect stay”
Reviewed 20 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

people found this review helpful

The location of this apartment couldn't have been more perfect. Right in the centre of Orta san Giulio. It had everything we could have wanted for a self catering apartment. It was our first time travelling abroad with our toddler in tow and the owner, Andrea, went out of his way to help us settle in, including arranging taxis and meeting us in town on arrival. Couldn't recommend this apartment highly enough!

“Couldn't imagine a better place to stay in Orta!”
Reviewed 22 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

people found this review helpful

My wife and I stayed in the apartment for 4 days on our honeymoon in late-September 2014. It was a perfect place to unwind after spending the previous week hiking in Switzerland. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The apartment had all the comforts of home, almost to the point we were ready to move in! Everything was very clean and modern. The kitchen was well stocked (spices, cooking oils, etc.) and has everything you need to cook full meals (stove/oven, refrigerator and dishwasher). Despite the apartment being somewhat small, you did not feel cramped as the space was used very well.

The location of the apartment was unbeatable. It was a stone's throw away from the main square in town, with restaurants, bars, as well as a ferry to Isola San Giulio. Also, it was right around the corner from the fruit/vegetable store....which was very nice as we ended up cooking a few nights while there. Short walk up the hill to the Sacro Monte. A bit far from the train-station, however Andrea was very helpful and not only picked us up from the station, but dropped us off as well (the walk is certainly do-able though).

Orta San Giulio itself was very nice. A bit "sleepy", as we were there mid-week, but that is exactly what we wanted. Perfect place for couples or families. A very easy place to relax; we were content to just wander through the maze of medieval streets and spend time hanging out by the lake, swimming and sunbathing. That being said, if we were to visit again, we would probably have rented a car to explore the surrounding area. You can easily see most, if not all, of the town by foot.

Finally, have to mention how great Andrea and his mother were. Very accommodating and very friendly. We felt very welcomed immediately after arriving, and appreciated all the small touches, such as the bottle of limoncello and prosecco they gave us. All in all, we had a great time while there and are hopefully lucky enough to visit again sometime in the future.

“Great appartment with wonderful hosts in lovely town!”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The appartment is right in the middle of the lovely little town of Orta San Giulio. It's a great appartment that has everything in it you could possibly want, even some food and drinks on our arrival. Maybe the only thing missing is a place to sit outside, but as you're only 50 meters from the lake, that's not really a problem. Andrea and his mother are the best hosts you can imagine, providing great service and lots of information. Andrea, who speaks English fluently, is constantly available to answer questions. He even offered to pick us up at the trainstation and took us back on our return! To us, everything was perfect and we can truely recommend this place to everyone!
