We have just returned from an amazing week at Lake Orta. The apartments are well designed and full equipped, the owner has taken a lot of time ensuring that every requirement is catered for - right down to providing books, games, DVDs etc for both children and adults alike. The pool and its surrounding area and gardens were particularly delightful, especially as we had such beautiful weather for the whole week we spent at the property. This area of Italy is really beautiful and there are many places to visit and lots of good, reasonably priced restaurants to choose to eat out in. It is a much slower, more relaxed, very Italian pace here compared to the mass tourism of the bigger lakes such as Como and Garda. We will definitely return as we did not have long enough to do all the things we wanted in the week. The owner provided a lot of good information on various places to visit and things to do and we managed a few things but would like to come back and do a few others. One of the best activities are the walks available from the property - none of them are particularly difficult and all are suitable for children, I think the longest was around 3 hours return, although we would recommend good trainers or walking shoes for summer and possibly hiking boots for winter, as a lot of it was in wooded areas with trails which could be slippery in wet weather. The owner was very helpful and came and introduced himself personally to us on the day we arrived. He took a lot of time helping us out with finding a pharmacy to get medication for our son who developed an ear infection whilst we were at the villa and for that we are most grateful. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for him or the Italian local people who work for him.
We stayed as a family of 4 in this wonderful villa. The view of Villa Gelsomina is absolutely breath taking. The villa itself was absolutely perfect for us. William's booklet made everything so easy specially the restaurants and icecream places! We truly recommend this place to anyone who wants peace and quiet and beautiful view of the lake. The beach is in walking distance and easy to access with or without a car. We are definitely going back to visit next year!! Thanks for everything william:)
We've just returned from a wonderful holiday at Lake Orta and really don't want to write a review as it might tempt other people to go so it won't be a secret any more! The apartments are lovely and have everything you need for a relaxing family holiday. The views from the pool and patio are amazing and it takes a lot of will power to tear yourself away to explore. There's lots to do if you can tear yourself away, with plenty of places to eat within a few minutes drive. Not only were we impressed by the 'un-touristy' nature of the area but also the prices which were much more reasonable than we expected.
We'll definitely be coming back as this must be one of the best spots on the lake.
Un superbe location, parfaitement équipée (rien ne manque) dans un région sublime. Situé idéalement à 5mn de Orta San Giulio (très joli village) donc suffisamment près pour y accéder rapidement mais assez éloigné pour jouir du calme et pouvoir se reposer. Je recommande +++++++
Le propriétaire répond très rapidement à chaque mail et toutes les formalités (traitées par internet) entre lui et le locataire se passent très bien.
We had an absolutely outstanding time at Villa Gelsomina. We had booked all 5 appartments as we were having our wedding in the nearby village of Orta San Giulio. The villa have an outstanding location and one of the best views we have ever experienced. All appartments were immaculately well prepared before our arrival and all excellently equipped.
We would definetely recommend staying at Villa Gelsomina, and expect that we will be back sometime in the future for a few of tour wedding anniversaries.
We had a wonderful two weeks in this well designed and attractive apartment. The views from the terrace are beautiful and the area is very tranquil. It is a superb base for the wide range of activities in the region and there are many good restaurants within easy reach. The owner was extremely helpful and appeared genuinely concerned that we had a good time. This was definitely one of the best holidays we have had and we would recommend Vill Gelsimona without hesitation.
