L'Isola apartment was above and beyond our expectations.

5

Absolutely divine! This apartment is everything we had hoped for and more. With windows and a set of French doors opening on the picturesque, historic Piazza San Giulia, the location is perfect. Alessandra and Alice were very helpful throughout the course of our stay. Lake Orta is extremely beautiful and all of its attractions were accessible on foot or boat from the Isola apartment. I only wish I didn’t have to leave. We will definitely go back!

Jane

Thanks Jane, it is a beautiful compliment to have been “above your expectations”. Thank you for choosing to leave this review!

Thank you for our wonderful stay in Orta, Alice! Our apartment was beautiful and you made everything so easy. You were always available at any time to answer questions, make suggestions and help us with reservations. Our flight arrived early in the morning and Alice had our apartment all ready for us to check in early. That was a lovely surprise after a long trip!

Amy

Thanks Amy, it was a pleasure to have you hosted in one of my apartments. Thank you for spending your time dedicating these beautiful words to us.

Alice

100%!! Absolutely recommendable, because of apartment, restaurants, view, and of course Alice

5

We were picked up at our meeting point and were taken to the apartment where we got all the needed information.

Norbert

Wow! I would not even know what to answer to a review with this title… except that I wait for you Norbert, when you want to return, you will always be a welcome guest!

Alice

What a stunning apartment!

5

What a stunning apartment. I have stayed in a lot of holiday house in my time, but this may well be the best of the lot. Amazing setting, soaking up the atmosphere of the square but enjoying the privacy of the balcony and the lovely view over the island. So well located for fantastic restaurants. Yes, it’s a bit of a trek with the suitcase as the town is pedestrianised. But the benefit is that there is no traffic once you are there. And the underground car park for the flat is ideal. A must-book.

Dominic

Dear Dominic, your words are a pride for me! Thank you so much for choosing this apartment, I’m happy to have hosted you and your girlfriend!

Alice

Unique appartment!

Alice

Apartment well appointed

5

We absolutely loved at stay in Lake Orta, and were made to feel very welcome by Alice the agent, who is very knowledgeable about the local area. This beautiful apartment is tastefully furnished, very comfortable and well set up for a short or long term stay. The view of the lake across from the sitting room is spectacular. The apartment is very well appointed with multiple restaurant and bar options just downstairs in the town square. We loved walking around Orta and falling in with the local relaxed lifestyle.

We will feel like we have found a slice of heaven and will definitely return!

Catherine

Dear Catherine, it’s a pleasure to have hosted you. I really hope you’ll come back to Lake Orta again. See you soon!

Amazing Apartment on Lake Orta

5

Amazing apartment. As you walk in through the door the view is immediate and exactly as the pictures show. No disappointment here. If ever back here then this will be top of my list.
We were here for a wedding so the central location was perfect.

Callum

Thanks Callum, your review is fabulous! I am very happy that you have had a good stay, I also hope to meet again on one of your next holidays!

Alice

Paradise in Italy

5

Our stay at L’Isola was truly outstanding! The setting is magnificent with enchanting views across Lake Orta to the island of San Guilio and to the villages beyond. This lovely historic apartment has all the charm of its ancient origins, while offering a fully equipped kitchen and beautiful character furnishings throughout.
We had everything we needed. Excellent restaurants, bars and shops are just minutes from the front door. Our evenings sitting on the sun-drenched balcony, gazing over the old piazza to the lake, will never be forgotten. This is an experience not to be missed!

Sally

Thank you Sally for spending your time writing such a beautiful and detailed review. I’m sure this will serve a lot for future guests who will read your words before booking this house. Thank you very much for the help you gave us! I hope to welcome you soon again!

Alice

Wir waren sehr begeistert

5

Perfekte Lage direkt am See, tolles Ambiente. Die Betreuung war sehr gut, das Objekt sehr gepflegt und sauber.

Es wäre schön gewesen einen Zweitschlüssel zu haben. Die Türklingel funktioniert nicht.

 

Fabian

Lieber Fabian, vielen Dank für Ihre wunderbare Bewertung! Ich hoffe immer noch daran interessiert Haus in der Zukunft!

Alice

The apartment is beautiful with the host professional and helpful at all times. Will be back soon!!

5

We felt the service received from the host was perfect. Alice is very helpful not only with the apartment but also giving advice on the area.

 

Leyton

Dear Leyton your review is wonderful and I’m sorry you had some rainy days on your vacation, I hope you’ll decide to come back again, when the sun is shining, and I’m sure you’ll enjoy even more of the house and the country of Orta. Thanks for all!

Alice

Missing wi-fi

5

The only thing missing was wi-fi.

Peter

Yes, we know, with wifi will be definitely better. In Orta we have some problems with landescape’s laws, to be able to pit dishes for internet reception. In fact, even the municipality hasn’t set up a working wifi for citizens and tourists. Anyway we are already working to understand if we can provide this service for 2019. Thank you very much for your wonderful review!

Alice

Alice was fantastic and helped with all our luggage, including the wedding dress! nothing was too much trouble. The apartment was superb and well appointed with fantastic views across to the island. The perfect location for our perfect day. Can’t wait to return.

James

Thanks James, I’m so happy to have hosted you and to have taken part (in some way) at your wedding. It was an important task, to welcome you on your first vacation, as a married couple, I’m sure you’ll never forget it for the rest of your life!

Location was amazing.

Margaret

Thanks for this wonderful review!

Alice

Great apartment in perfect location

5

We loved being right in the centre of the square – we had small kids who needed to nap in the daytime and/or go to bed early so it was great to be able to sit on the balcony or at the window and still feel like we were amongst the action. Also it was surprisingly quiet given the location.

Julie

Thanks Julie, your review is simply fabulous!

Alice

Wonderful balcony looking the lake

5

The flat is beautifully decorated and it is wonderful sit on the balcony and look over the square. We can recommend the restaurant just right from the apartment – great food. Alice was very helpful and answered all questions quick and helped with parking.

Anna

Dear Anna, thank you for having taken your time to describe your stay in my apartment. I’m really glad you and your family have had a good holiday. I was happy to accommodate you!

Alice

What a beautiful apartment!

5

What a beautiful apartment! Alice’s communication before and during the stay was excellent and she made sure our stay was memorable. Lake Orta is an incredibly scenic place and Alice’s apartment, overlooking the main square, is a perfect place to stay. The view from the balcony is one of the main square and the island of San Giulio and at night, listening to the gentle water against the shoreline was a lovely way to end the day. We spent four nights at Alice’s apartment and we are very much looking forward to returning.

Padraic

Oh Padraic, what a nice evaluation. I thank you for taking your time to write a comment so nice. I hoped that you will return to visit the Lake Orta, I would be happy to welcoming you again. You were a perfect host!

Alice

Appartement très agréable

Séjour excellent dans cette petite ville dans un appartement avec vue imprenable sur le lac d’Orta. Appartement très agréable, hôtesse attentionnée et disponible pleine de gentillesse.

Philippe

Merci Philippe! Je suis content que vous avez eu de bonnes vacances!!!

Alice

Spacious and light.

5

Easily the most beautiful airbnb we have stayed in! Spacious and light. Comfortable bed. And of course the most amazing view and position on the piazza. Alice is an absolute delight. She was incredibly friendly and helpful.

Mark

Thanks Mark, your review is wonderful, both for the home and for my service. I’m honored with your beautiful words… the most beautiful airbnb where you’ve been. I’m so happy! Thank you for choosing to stay in one of my apartments!

Alice

We would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation to friends and family

5

Appartment Isola was beautiful, really high standard accommodation, with amazing views over the main square and the lake and Isola San Guilio. Alice was incredibly helpful and informative throughout our visit. The booklet on the area she designed herself was really useful and we followed her advice on where to visit and how to get about. Such a beautiful place – and lots to see and do. We went on a day trip to Lake Maggiore – easily accessible from San Guilio and the lakeside walk was a wonderful bonus. A serene and magical place. We’d love to return.

Sally

Oh Sally, your review is awesome! Thanks so much for choosing to write such a great comment! I am happy that your holiday was memorable and I would be really happy to be able to accommodate you again.

Alice

Clean, comfortable, well equipped

5

We loved our few days in this apartment. It was clean, comfortable, well equipped and with the most fabulous view of the lake, the Isola San Guilio and the little piazza. Thanks for making our stay so easy and for giving us such a warm welcome

Peter

Thank you Peter, what a fantastic review! Thank you very much for your stay, I was very happy to welcome you!

Alice

We loved our stay

5

We loved our stay here, and hated to leave! We would absolutely book the same place if we return to Orta. The apartment was beautiful and had everything we needed, an amazing view of the square and the lake, and is steps away from the main square and all the restaurants and cafes, the boat docks, and a market where we could get groceries so that we could take advantage of the fully-equipped kitchen. And it was a five-minute walk to a spot where we could swim in the lake. Alice made things simple for us to check in and out easily, and she was so accommodating when we needed to get a late check-in.

Anamaria

Dear Anamaria, Thanks a lot for your review! I was very happy to host you and I hope I can do it again in the future!

Alice

Absolutely lovely apartment

5

Gorgeous apartment, quite luxurious. Very comfortable with everything in excellent condition. Exceptionally well located and appointed. Lovely views, we even got a front seat view of our he fireworks over the lake when we were there. Alice was wonderfully helpful.

Moyra

Dear Moyra, I could not have asked for a more beautiful review! Thank you for your stay and thank you for having shared your experience in an opionion with such beautiful words! I hope I’ll meet you on Lake Orta.

Alice

Great location, in the heart of the town

4.8

The appartment is in a great location, in the heart of the historic centre, there are very nice restaurants nearby and nice places to have an aperitif before dinner. The apartment stayed cool even if it was really hot outside and it was really clean. Kids enjoyed the opportunity to go for a swim within 2 min walk from the appartment. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and will recommend it to our friends.

Kaisa

Thank you Kaisa, it is a pleasure for me to know that you have had a good vacation. Thanks for the nice review that you’ve decided to leave me. You have been a perfect guest, you have never bothered me to ask me anything.

Alice

Appartement plein de charme

Un charmant logement pour séjourner au lac d’Orta. Appartement plein de charme, très bien situé avec d’excellentes adresses et recommandations à proximité. Nous avons adoré et envisageons déjà d’y retourner dans un avenir proche.

Nicolas Merci d’avoir écrit cette belle revue! Je suis heureux que vous ayez eu un bon séjour! J’espère vous accueillir à nouveau à l’avenir.

It's stylish with a beautiful mosaic floor

4.8

This apartment is exactly what you see in the photographs. It’s stylish with a beautiful mosaic floor, spacious and the view is very impressive. The main bedroom is in the back and the only noise you get is sometimes slamming of the 1-2 entry doors. Once you walk through the initial door you have a set of stairs leading up to a second door which opens into the apartment block. Another set of stairs then entry level to your accommodation so be aware of how much luggage you take. There is no wifi, there’s public access but depending on the time of year (like June, July, August) you’ll never connect. Our SIM provider was not often strong enough either. If you stay for longer than the minimum 4 nights be aware that there’s no washer/drye provided in the apartment and from information Alice provided the closest is in Omegna which is some distance away. Same for a supermarket. We bought packaged fruit from a shop underneath. Isola San Giulio? Don’t listen to anyone who says “it’s not worth a visit because there’s nothing there”. We went and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The Church is delightful, obviously historic, there’s a restaurant which has a terrace for lunch. Restaurant tables in front but snacks/drinks near the rear but still worth sitting for. To go and return is €4.80 per person and the little boats leave every 15 minutes. Trust me! It’s a lovely way to spend a few hours on a sunny day. We were thinking of returning for dinner one night but we didn’t book because a the boat provides your return due to the public boats last departure is 1900.

Lovaine

Thanks to Lovaine for your wonderful review, I am very happy that you have had a good stay. Thanks also for your opinion on my town, it is always useful for future guests to have some suggestion from those who passed before them! Thanks for your help in this.
