We spend a week at La Darbia ( 2 adults and 2 children). Beautiful location above Orta San Giulio. Friendly owner and staff. Clean pool, ideal for children. We prefer the quiet Otra Lake to the larger and more crowded Maggiore and Como lakes, Highly recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- LA DARBIA, originally a small rural settlement where the principal occupation was agriculture, is located on the hillside that climbs upwards from the town of Orta following the natural slope of the mountain towering over it. A recent intervention led to the hamlet's revival and its destination as a tourist resort; the characteristic symbol is the little stone tower that gave the entire complex its name. The buildings that comprise LA DARBIA are all different from each other in shape and furnishings and are separated by yards and pedestrian lanes. Surrounded by foliage, the ground floor apartments have private gardens and a portico, while those on the first floor come with terraces. All the apartments enjoy sunny positions with a wonderful view of Lake Orta, the Island of San Giulio and Monte Rosa. The private gardens are towards the front of the park facing Lake Orta, as is the swimming-pool with the sunbathing area and the Nebbiolo vineyard, cultivated on the pre-existent terraced land, which dates back to the XVIII century. The parking spaces are to be found at the back along the driveway in the vicinity of the apartments. In the interior of the property there is a play area with suitable equipment for the use and enjoyment of our younger guests. A large wooded area, with an abundance of native species such as century-old chestnut, hornbeam and maple trees, surrounds the property. There is also a spring on the grounds belonging to the La DARBIA complex at just a short distance from the living quarters. It may be reached following a trail and the pure crystal water that flows from it is used on the property. Situated in an isolated area perfect for pure relaxation, LA DARBIA is also a strategic starting point to discover the many riches the surrounding territory has to offer: the town of Orta, one of the most beautiful in Italy, is within easy walking distance and from here one may discover the splendid Island of San Giulio and Sacro Monte, a Unesco heritage site. For mountain lovers, Mottarone with its breathtaking views, is nearby and so is the renowned tourist destination Lake Maggiore and its islands. ... more less
