We recommend this apartment for a family that wants to enjoy nature, in a small house nestled in the woods.

The apartment consists of a large living room with dining area and sofa, small separate kitchenette (fridge and dishwasher), double bedroom and bedroom with bunk beds, both with lake-view balcony and windowed bathroom with shower and washing machine.

The first supply of sheets and towels for all guests is included.

Unfortunately, we can not accommodate pets in this apartment. We are very sorry!

We offer our guests:

  • private terrace with chairs and table
  • free baby cot on request
  • washing machine
  • free parking
  • air conditioning
  • access to the lake shared with other neighbors

PLEASE NOTE: the house is surrounded by a park and there are many paths to walk. The road inside the park is unpaved but can also be used by cars (not vans or luxury cars!).
Mosquitoes have increased in recent years, so you’ll find mosquito nets on all windows!
The center of Orta can be reached on foot, but it is not very close (2 km) while the railway station is easily reachable (about half a km). The property also has a private dock where you can access the lake for swimming.
In the summer it often happens that there are noises coming from the main road where the bikes pass, especially on the weekend. The train can also be heard, but there are very few passages a day.

The house is located in a very quiet area, but in the historic center of Orta (less than 2 km away) you will find restaurants, wine bars, breakfast bars, as well as grocery store, pharmacy, ATM and post office.

Any Extra on request:

  • domestic help: € 15 per hour
  • transfer from the airport to the apartment: 90 € each way from Malpensa, other airports on request
  • car rental service with driver
  • guided tours in English with weekly departures (in summer) directly from your apartment. Ask us about the destinations and prices.

We have an office in the main square of Orta, which you can contact for any need during your stay.

Wow what an amazing location!


Wow what an amazing location super views of the lake, the grounds were fantastic host was very helpful, we had our 2 little ones with us and they loved it! Would return in the future! Very happy.


Quiet, clean, spacious surroundings


We did spend a great time at this place. Quiet, clean, spacious surroundings, great view and very helpful informations from the host. We can really recommend this place!!


Wonderful place to stay for a short break!


What a wonderful place to stay for a short break! This home has spectacular views over Lake Orta, and we spent many an hour relaxing on the balcony with a glass of wine or beer. At the back of the property there is an area with a picnic table and a hammock under a tree – ideal for stay at home picnics or for kids to run around and play. The property was well equipped with everything you need when staying away from home. Due to flight times we arrived quite late on a Saturday night so the host arranged for some food essentials to be left (the bottle of wine was a nice touch!) Orta San Giulio is a magical place, and we will definitely be returning again some day!


Great apartment with a fantastic lake view


Great apartment with a fantastic lake view, a short distance from Orta san Giulio. We spent time every morning having coffee on the balcony and every evening having wine, as we couldn’t tear ourselves away from the view! The apartment has all the facilities we needed, and Trude was on hand with helpful advice both before and during our stay.


Brilliant accommodation


Brilliant accommodation, lots f space and the best views of the lake you will get. We had a great time and was able to use the amenities at the house with no issues. The host provided some useful tips and suggestions for our stay.


Private dock was great


Had a fantastic few days at this house – the views across Lake Orta from the balcony were beautiful & the private dock was great


We have just returned home after a wonderful stay


We have just returned home after a wonderful stay. The home is in a quiet location, situated on top of a very steep hill, with the most stunning view of Lake Orta. We chose not to hire a car and in hindsight should have as the hill was quite a trek for our children (1 & 4 years). But it is manageable and we quite enjoyed the adventure each day. Orta San Guilio is within walking distance – around 25 mins with two small children. The area is stunning with many lovely restaurants! The home also has very large grounds which again was perfect for our children to explore. There is also a swing set and slide. The home had everything we needed and the communication was excellent throughout. A wonderful stay, we would love to visit again.


Le lac d’Orta est très mignon


Le lac d’Orta est très mignon, l’appartement situé au calme en pleine verdure mais …. dans une zone envahie de moustiques donc impossible d’ouvrir les fenêtres et de profiter de l’extérieur. Ajoutez odeur de gaz (due visiblement à une micro fuite qui j’espère sera réparée pour les suivants) et d’humide, et vaisselle moyennement propre, pas vraiment d’attention d’hospitalité (l’eau du robinet a un goût très fort qui la rend imbuvable mais il n’y avait pas même une bouteille d’eau à notre arrivée.) c’est moyen. J’imagine que les années où il n’y a pas de moustique l’expérience est tout autre. Ca n’enlève rien à l’emplacement génial. Et elle est vraiment adorable pour conseiller de bonnes adresses.


Cher Gentiane, nous avons mis des écrans sur les fenêtres. Malheureusement, l’été dernier n’était pas raisonnable et nous n’étions pas prêts à y faire face.
En ce qui concerne l’eau, c’était certainement un oubli car nous laissons toujours deux bouteilles d’eau fraîche au réfrigérateur.


Sehr grosses Grundstück


Sehr grosses Grundstück, ideal für Familien mit Kindern, die Bewegung brauchen. Kleiner Balkon mit schöner Aussicht. Bad eher dürftig. Sehr viele Mücken, keine Moskitonetze, weshalb die Klimaanlage nützlich ist, aber mehr läuft als nötig wäre. Eher teure Unterkunft.


Dear Dorotha, thanks for taking time to review our property. We chose to put mosquito nets on the windows, so our guests will be more comfortable.


We spent a lovely time


We spent a lovely time at this apartment which is perfectly equiped to stay with children. The private dock (including a tiny beach) was perfect for our daily swim in the lake. When you travel in summer, bring a good and effective repellent since the mosquitos are really numerous and ‚hungry‘. I can really recommend this place!


Fijn appartement


Fijn appartement mooi gelegen op een bergwand met een fantastisch uitzicht op het Ortameer. Voorzieningen zijn prima in orde.


Très bien située


Cette maison est très bien située, dans une propriété calme et magnifique. Le joli petit chemin d’accés est étroit mais très bien entretenu. Malgré le sentier qui mène au lac, nous prenions la voiture pour aller nous baigner et la laissions sur le petit parking au bas de la propriété car il faisait très chaud pour marcher. La petite plage et le ponton privé est un luxe incroyable car il n’y a pas beaucoup plage sur ce lac. La maison est propre et bien equipée. Nous avons était ravis de notre séjour.
