Wunderschönes Anwesen in traumhafter Lage
Wir hatten eine tolle Woche in der Villa Gelsomina. Die Anlage, der Pool und insbesondere der Blick sind traumhaft schön. Der Ortasee hat uns völlig begeistert.
Wegen unserer Kinder und dem direkten Zugang zum Garten hatten wir das Appartment Ciao Italia gemietet. Das Appartment hat alles was man braucht, allerdings hätten wir uns eine Pfanne und ein Schneidebrett in der Küche gewünscht. Das sollte dringend ergänzt werden!
Das Bad und insbesondere die Dusche wirkt nicht mehr so ganz neu, ist aber in Ordnung.
Einziges Manko der Unterkunft ist, dass die untere Wohnung (vermutlich wegen Feuchtigkeit) sehr muffig riecht. Wir haben ständig gelüftet, aber der Geruch ist nicht ganz weggegangen. Die oberen Wohnungen habe dieses Problem aber wohl nicht!
Man kann hier wirklich einen traumhaften Urlaub verbringen, sollte aber auf keinen Fall Mückenschutz vergessen. Die Mücken waren leider eine echte Plage.
Der Support durch den Vermieter war perfekt und sehr freundlich. Wenn es uns nochmal an den Ortasee verschlägt, würden wir hier wieder unterkommen wollen (aber oben).
Fabulous Property and Location
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.
Nice apartment with lovely big pool and truly fantastic view
We stayed at Villa Gelsomina for one week in August 2017. Our two girls loved the pool which was large and clean, with amazing views onto Lake Orta. The apartment is simple but perfectly clean and is equipped with all the usual cooking essentials. The grounds are very well kept. There are about 5 other apartments in the mini complex, all the other guests when we stayed there were very nice and friendly. The wifi is not reliable at all so if you're planning to use it for heavy duty use, such as streaming video, then forget it. There are a lot of mosquitoes in the evening so you definitely need to take Jungle Formula or similar and use the smoke spirals. We did mention to William that he should perhaps install mosquito screens internally so that you can sleep with the windows/doors open, hopefully he may get this done in the future. That, or aircon, would be a welcome addition.
You really do need a car to get out and about, however there is one restaurant a short walk away in Lortallo. There are numerous really good beaches to try. We liked Spiaggia Miami (the closest, but don't follow Google Maps to get there!); Spiaggia Gozzano just south of Miami, it has a good restaurant (best pizza we had in Italy) and big platform with diving board; and the small, private beach next to the Luci sul Lago restaurant on the road heading north out of Orta San Giulio.
Isola San Giulio was lovely and worth a visit, as was Pella. One day we took a trip to Alpyland where you can ride a luge on rails down the hill and you get fantastic views of Lake Maggiore and Lake Orta.
A quick tip: don't pay with PayPal as extra fees are subsequently deducted from your deposit.
We would highly recommend this apartment, it was just what we hoped it would be and William was very helpful.
Amazing 2 weeks stay in Ciao Italia in August 2013
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 are delighted you had an enjoyable stay!
Italy's best kept secret
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.
