We loved our stay at Alice’s & Alessandra’s appartement. The location is perfect and the appartement us small, but very beautifully stiled and very clean. We especially enjoyed to have a glass of wine on the balcony in the evening. Alice and Alessandra were both very nice! They picked us up at the station and gsve us water and champagne as welcome presents. Their website visitlakeorta.com is a very well thought out guide to the region and very recommended. Thank you for a perfect experience!

Nils

Thanks Nils, you and Ronnie have been delightful guests. I look forward to welcoming you again!

Die Wohnung ist wirklich süß und liebevoll eingerichtet.

4.7

Die Wohnung (1. Stock) ist wirklich süß und liebevoll eingerichtet. Perfekte Lage im Zentrum in hübscher Gasse – knapp 100 Meter bis zur Piazza am See. Toller kleiner Balkon – interessant das Geschehen untendrunter zu verfolgen, perfekt für’s Frühstück draußen oder den Willkommens-Prosecco, der netterweise im Kühlschrank bereit stand. Alles sehr sauber. Restaurants/Bars in direkter Laufnähe. Parken in örtlicher Tiefgarage (für Gäste der Wohnung im Preis inklusive!) ein wenig außerhalb, denn das kleine historische Zentrum ist glücklicherweise autofrei. Entfernung Garage <-> Wohnung nur 200-250m zu Fuß, zum Teil über Treppen erreichbar – wir haben diesen kurzen Weg durch die Altstadt immer sehr genossen. Größerer Supermarkt im Nachbarort – kleine Läden für das Nötigste mit großer Wurst-/Käseauswahl direkt im Ort – Bäcker gleich oberhalb der Piazza in der Gasse Richtung Kirche Assunta. Unsere super-nette Gastgeberin Alice hat uns am vereinbarten Treffpunkt abgeholt, uns mit dem Gepäck geholfen und uns sehr gute Tipps gegeben (spricht wunderbar englisch) – perfekte Organisation seitens der Vermieter, auch bereits im Vorfeld.

Einzig das Brummen des Kälteaggregats gegenüber des Schlafzimmers (vom benachbarten Restaurant) kann bei offenem Fenster störend sein – bei geschlossenem Fenster kein Problem, was zu unserer Zeit aufgrund der nächtlich kühlen Temperaturen ohnehin besser war.

 

 

Melanie

Dear Madeline, thank you for the kind review of our staff, services and apartment, specially for taking time to share your experiences during your recent stay with us. We have taken duly note of your positive as well as your constructive comments.

Nous avons séjourné 4nuits a Orta avec un bébé de 8mois et nous avons bcp aimé notre séjour ! Alessandra nous a accueilli avec du prosecco dans le frigo et le lit bébé déjà installé, de quoi profiter dès notre arrivée ! L’accès inclus au parking le plus proche (normalement payant) est très appréciable. L’appartement a 2 points forts majeurs: son emplacement hyper central qui permet de tout faire à pied pendant le séjour (café, resto, bateau pour ile San giulio, plage et même Sacro Monte). L’autre point fort selon nous est son balcon adorable et fleuri en pleine rue passante pour y boire un verre, déjeuner ou bouquiner tranquillement. Petits bémols: prévoir tout pour manger à l appartement (même sel poivre ou huile dolive) et il n’y a pas de supermarché dans le village. Autre point l’isolement phonique qui mériterait d’être amélioré car même si un peu de bruit va avec le centre ville on entend même fenêtres fermées. Bon séjour dans ce village charmant!

Sophie

Merci Sophie d’avoir passé du temps à écrire votre critique. Nous avons fait de notre mieux pour vous accueillir, vous et votre famille, merci de l’apprécier.

Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt in dem wunderschönen Apartment sehr genossen

5

Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt in dem wunderschönen Apartment sehr genossen und können es nur weiterempfehlen. Es ist mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet, bestens ausgestattet und die Lage mitten im Zentrum ist perfekt. Vor allem hervorheben möchten wir den schön Balkon inmitten eines charmanten Platzes. Da lies sich das Frühstück perfekt genießen. Nur die Check-Out Zeit zwischen 9.00 und 10.00 fanden wir etwas zu früh. Die Kommunikation läuft reibungslos und man bekommt bei Check-In viele brauchbare Infos und Tipps. Orta San Giulio ist ein charmanter Ort, der mit vielen Cafés, Restaurants und ruhigen Plätzchen zum Schwimmen zum Verweilen einlädt und noch nicht zu sehr von Touristen überrannt wird. In dem Ort (unmittelbar zum Appartement) gibt es nur zwei Feinkostläden, die recht teuer sind. Wir können den Supermarkt einen Ort weiter empfehlen.

Steffen

Thanks Steffen, it was a real pleasure to have you as my guest.
I’m sorry if check-in by 10 was not welcome. We always try to please our guests leaving them all day long when we can, but unfortunately the day of your departure we had to prepare the house for other guests arriving a few hours later.

Alice

We had a great stay - the location exceeded expectation. Out hosts were delightful people.

4.7

Superb location- such a beautiful town – it was lovely to be able to sit on the balcony and watch people passing in the square below. An excellent base for enjoying other beauty spots close by. Our hosts were very friendly and eager to be of help at all times- they were easy to contact by text which was very helpful.

Pauline

Thanks Pauline, I am very happy that your holiday went well. Thank you for spending these beautiful words for us.

Alice

We can’t recommend this place enough.

5

The apartment is exactly as beautiful and cozy as the photos show. The carefully thought out details and personality of the place were impressive and we couldn’t possible find anything missing. The attentiveness of the two sweet hostesses was equally impressive. Enjoying quiet late afternoon drinks on the balcony overlooking the scenery of a small lively square in the small lively village was a highlight of our vacation. We can’t recommend this place enough.

Jesper

Thanks Jesper, your words almost move me. We do everything we can to ensure that our guests have the best possible stay and I am so happy when you appreciate it.

Alice

Thanks so much for the great hospitality and your friendliness

5

We had a great time in this amazingly situated apartment, just off the main square. Alice and Alessandra were incredibly helpful and made us feel very welcome. The apartment came with a free parking space in the underground car park nearby (the actual centre is car – free) which was extremely useful. We used Orta as a base to visit both Lago Maggiore and Lago Como as well as Lago Orta of course. All the lakes are stunningly beautiful but have their own individual charm.

Martyn

Thanks Martyn, I’m glad you enjoyed your holiday. Thank you for taking the time to write your opinion. It will surely be useful to other guests after you. Thanks for everything!

Alice

We loved free car park

5

This is a fantastic apartment right in the heart of Orta San Giulio. We loved everything about this apartment but in particular the guest recommendation booklet, free car park and afternoon drinks on the cute balcony with a bottle of prosecco people watching 🙂 Thank you Alice and Alessandra! Would highly recommend this apartment for a couple.

Orla

Thank you Orla, reading your review it seems that your holiday has been wonderful! My intent is to give a stay up to the expectations of my guests and if possible, better! Thank you for spending your time writing these beautiful words of reference for me, I am very grateful!

Alice

Centrally located

5

Wonderful place to stay! Beautiful clean suite with charming balcony overlooking a beautiful piazza. Centrally located and close to everything. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need to cook with, and the pillows were the most comfortable I’ve had away from home. Highly recommended!

Erin

Thanks Erin for the wonderful review! I am very happy that you were my guest, you will always be welcome when you want to come back!

Alice

Perfect spot to discover Orta

4.8

The flat “Romantico nido” is the perfect spot to discover Orta San Giulio! There couldn’t be a better location directly near the main plazza. You can use this flat to discover the whole region including the Lago Maggiore and its islands! The flat is equipped with everything needed for a couple (and a small child :)) and is very clean. The car park is a VERY important asset of this flat since the city centre is reserved to pedestrian. To discover the region I would advice you to have a car 🙂

Joris

Dear Joris, your review is wonderful! I’m really happy that you had a good holiday. The happiness of my guests is the best business card for my apartments! I hope to meet again sooner or later for another holiday on Lake Orta. Thanks for everything!

Alice

Lovely apartment

5

Beautiful apartment in the middle of it all in Orta San Giulio. It was magical and exceeded our expectations! Everything is close by and you’ll wake up to the noise of the town right under your window. The balcony was great for enjoying a glass of wine at night or gelato in the afternoon. The travel to the apartment is easy and Alessandra will show you the way, but be prepared for a 5 min walk with all your luggage being towed on old cobblestone streets. It was a lovely apartment and the stay was a memory of a lifetime!

Anne

Thanks Anne, you have been a wonderful host! I hug you! Thank you for choosing one of my apartments.

Alice

Cool location!

4.8

I had such a nice stay at Alice’s place. Cool location, great apartment, convenient parking. Thanks, Alice!)

Alex

Thanks Alex, I’m happy to meet you and I’m very happy that your stay has been so good. Thank you for choosing my apartment!

Die Lage ist perfekt

4.7

Die Wohnung ist klein, aber sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Die Lage ist perfekt, nahe zum See und zu diversen Restaurants und Bars. Das Highlight für mich war der kleine Balkon, auf dem man gerne ein Glas Wein geniesst. Alles in allem war es ein sehr schöner Aufenthalt, in einer tollen Wohnung und sehr gastfreundlichen Vermietern, in einem malerischen Städtchen.

Daniel

Thanks Daniel, I have to answer you in English because, as you know, I do not speak German, but I would like to learn it. Thanks for your review. I am very happy to know that your vacation was great!

Appartment mitten im Ort

5

Das Appartment liegt mitten im Ort an einem kleinen Platz, an dem es tagsüber lebendig zugeht, aber nachts Ruhe einkehrt. Unten im Dorf gibt es bis bis auf Feinkostläden keine Möglichkeiten zum Einkaufen von Nahrungsmitteln. Es empfiehlt sich, sich vorher mit dem Nötigsten zu bevorraten, falls man dem vielfältigen Angebot der Restaurants widerstehen und selber kochen möchte. Die Ausstattung der Wohnung ist überdurchschnittlich: Im Kühlschrank stand eine Flasche Prosecco zur Begrüßung und es ist an alles gedacht, was man so brauchen könnte. Alice hat Wissenswertes über die Sehenswürdigkeiten und empfehlenswerte Restaurants in einem kleinen Heft zusammengestellt, das in der Wohnung ausliegt. Zum See sind es keine 100 Meter, so dass man ohne Umstände jederzeit zum Schwimmen gehen kann. Das Wasser war überraschend warm und ganz klar. Wir haben uns ein Paddelboot gemietet (wenn man aus dem Haus nach rechts geht, dann immer am See entlang, stößt man auf einen kleinen Bootsverleih) und sind zur gegenüberliegenden Seeseite nach Pella gepaddelt, wo mehrere gute Restaurants zur Einkehr einladen.

Elisabeth

Thanks Elisabeth, I have to answer you in English because I do not speak your language. Thank you so much for choosing to stay in my apartment. I am so happy that you have had a memorable vacation. Thank you for describing not only the apartment, but also the surrounding places. Kayak hire is a new activity. In fact, I asked them to bring me some flyer because it will certainly be interesting for my guests. Thanks for everything!

Alice

Ottima posizione!

Ottimo posto dove soggiornare. Casa pulita in ottima posizione e l’host è stato super disponibile.

Claudia

Grazie Claudia, siete stati degli ottimi ospiti! Spero di accogliervi ancora presto!

Alice

Nicely renovation

5

Alice’s apartment is in a historic building that has been nicely renovated to a high standard, it is quiet and cool and clean and there is everything you need for a pleasant stay. We enjoyed sitting on the little balcony watching the people strolling by below. We were collected from the train which was really nice and Alice and Alexandra were very helpful and friendly.

Madeline

Dear Madeline, thank you for having taken your time to write this review of your stay in my apartment. I was sorry that you stopped a short time, but I’m sure that if you come back you will discover still many other sights of the Lake Orta.

Alice

Lovely apartment

Lovely apartment in a beautiful part of the town.

Andy

Thank you Andy for choosing one of my apartments. I hope to have you soon as my host yet!

Alice

Thank you Alice, we really enjoyed our stay!

Very nice apartment, well located in the center of Orta. Very clean, recently renovated, with a large bedroom and a small balcony we really enjoyed! Alice is very easy to reach and answers very quickly. I recommend this apartment !

Amélie

Dear Amelie, It was a pleasure for me to accommodate you. You have been very welcome and hopefully in the future, to welcome you again.

Alice

Balcony the best place to watch the day go by in Lake Orta

4.8

Hosts Alice and Alessandra excellent and even picked us up at station. Property as displayed and easy to get to and right in town centre. Heaps of information and great restaurant info. La Motta and Artscene cafe a must. Would stay again.

Pamela

Dear Pamela, thank you for your review and your suggestions about restaurant!

Alice

Eine perfekte Woche am perfekten Ort!

5

Perfekte Unterkunft für 2 Personen direkt in der Fußgängerzone von Orta San Giulio. Sehr liebevoll und modern eingerichtet, außerdem piccobello sauber! Wir haben die Nachmittage in der Herbstsonne auf unserem kleinen Balkon sehr genossen und konnten dort den besonderen Flair des Ortes “einsaugen”. Alice ist eine extrem bemühte (und unaufdringliche) Gastgeberin und wir danken nochmals für den guten Restauranttipp (Il cucchiaio de legno), das Abendessen dort war bestens ***!

Die Lüftungsanlage des benachbarten Hotels kann störend sein; da es allerdings nicht mehr extrem heiß war, ließen wir des Nachts das Schlafzimmerfenster geschlossen und konnten somit unsere Nachtruhe genießen.

Paul

Danke, Paul. In ein paar Tagen wechseln wir das Fenster, so dass es im Schlafzimmer keine Störungen mehr gibt.

Alice

Amazing stay we had such a special time here!

5

The flat is in such a good location in Lake Orta, with wonderful views over the old town square.

William

Thank you William, it was a pleasure host people like you! You will be always welcome! Thank you for your review.

Alice

Très bien situé

5

super gestion et disponibilité du personnel. Bcp de conseil pratique. L’appartement est très bien situé si on desire etre au centre historique.

Dominique

Merci, en lisant votre avis, il semble que vos vacances ont été merveilleuses! Mon intention est de répondre aux attentes de mes invités et, si possible, mieux! Merci de passer votre temps à écrire ces belles paroles de référence pour moi, je vous en suis très reconnaissant!

Alice

Die Lage des Apartments ist fantastisch

5

Die Lage des Apartments ist fantastisch…mitten im Kern des Örtchens mit Blick auf einen kleinen hübschen Platz. Zu Mittag haben wir oft auf dem Balkon gegessen. Das Apartment ist großzügig und von der Athmosphäre her sehr angenehm! Tolles Preis-Leistungs Verhältnis für die Hochsaison!

Es gab nichts, dass uns nicht gefallen hat, alles Bestens!

Erhard

Danke Herard! Deine Meinung ist sehr wichtig! I am happy that you enjoyed the balcony, in my opinion it is the best feature of the house! Thank you for spending your holiday in one of my apartments.

Alice

Geweldig en super compleet!

5

Het met beviel dat het appartement super compleet was. Alle pannen messen lepels waterkoker zout peper douch zeep schoonmaak middelen waren al in het appartement! Bijzonder! En de locatie was geweldig! Je liep de deur uit en allemaal heerlijk eet tentjes om s avonds te eten en je was binnen 2min weer thuis heerlijk!

Eigenlijk niets, locatie was geweldig het is wel een Trippel met trappen omdat je er met de auto niet kunt komen. En er was een ventilator (super fijn!) maar die maakte enorm veel herrie en eigenlijk zonder kon je niet slapen.

Robbert

Robbert, your review is wonderful! I’m glad you ‘re enjoyed your stay. I hope that you will have other opportunities to visit lake Orta. You’ve been a perfect guest! Thank you very much for choosing to express your opinion for one of my houses.

Alice

A comfortable stay

4.7

Excellent communication prior to arrival and Alice kindly transported me to and from the train station as it was a 30 minute walk to the town. Booklet in the apartment provided local information and I was provided with Alice’s phone number for any additional support. Bottled water and wine in the fridge which was appreciated. Immaculately clean. A secure apartment on the first floor level close to the main piazza so very easy to access and great for a solo traveller.

Remembering to close the shutters to keep the afternoon sun out. Bedroom fan very effective but noisy.

Janice

Thank you Janice, I am very happy that you have had a good stay and a good holiday on Lake Orta. Thank you for leaving a judgment on my apartment. I believe that the opinions of past travelers are very useful for future guests. Thank you very much for your help.

Alice

Nett mit kleinen Mängeln

4.2

Schönes Appartement. Zentrale Lage. Kühles Schlafzimmer auch ohne Klimaanlage.

Lautes Kälteaggregat direkt unterm Fenster des Schlafzimmers. Parkplatu nicht wie angegeben am Haus, sondern zentrales Parkhaus über steile Treppen und holperiges Steinpflaster

Wolf

Dear Wolf, I’m very sorry you did not read all the information I sent you. In fact, it was very clear that the parking was outside the restricted traffic area (about 220 meters away from the house). The stone stairs are typical of Orta, the luck of our village is just to have less cement and more ancient ways! Maybe you have not read my mails and I’m sorry, I will treasure this experience and I will ask all the guests if they have understood well what kind of town they are going to visit. I also tried to help you, welcoming you a full hour and a half before your check-in time, taking your suitcases (I am a real estate agent), asking the police at what times your car could go down to the house for unload the luggage and I am very sorry that they have not allowed you to drive in the center on Sunday, but this is a rule that applies to everyone and not just for you. Thanks anyway for choosing to leave your opinion, for me it is really important, because I understand that I will have to be even more precise in the descriptions. Thank you so much, any further suggestion will be very welcome.

Alice

Heart of Orta

4

Great location in the heart of Orta Staff made all easy and were loaded with information of the town and nearby locations to eat and visit.

As the town only has a few shops for amenities it would be good if they supplied the basics.

Tasha

Dear Tasha, thank you very much for choosing to leave your opinion. Of course, I’m sorry that we did not meet your expectations (yours is the review with the lowest rating we’ve ever received). In particular I am very sorry about the score of 7.5 out of 10 for cleaning and services and the score of 5 out of 10 for comfort. Please send me a private email explaining what you did not like so we can improve the service. Until now, nobody has given us such low marks and it is really important for me to understand what we can do to offer our guests an even better experience. Thank you so much for your help.

Alice

Toll Ferienwohnung

Toll gelegene Ferienwohnung mitten im Zentrum. Herrlicher Platz auf dem Balkon über den Köpfen der flanierenden Touristen. Geschmackvolle umfassende Ausstattung. Sehr nette Gastgeber. Besonders gefreut haben wir uns über die Flasche Prosecco zum Empfang, die wir auf dem Balkon genossen haben.

Jan

Danke Jan, ich spreche kein Deutsch, aber ich möchte Ihnen für Ihre schöne Bewertung danken!! Unfortunately, I do not speak German, but I want to thank you for spending your time writing such a beautiful review. For me it was a pleasure to host you. I hope to host you again in the future!

Misterioso e romantico lago

5

Posizione perfetta nel cuore di Orta. Gestore disponibilissimo e molta cura nei particolari, come lasciare una bottiglia di spumante in frigo per il nostro arrivo. Comodissimo il pass gratuito per accedere al parcheggio principale. Un luogo romantico e per intenditori del buon vivere e del relax, immersi in un contesto di bellezze naturali e artistiche. Vacanza breve, ma indimenticabile.

Marta

Marta, non ho parole per ringraziarti per questa splendida recensione! Grazie davvero per aiutarmi a far conoscere questo splendido luogo e questo piccolo appartamentino. Spero di poterti accogliere ancora …e certo troverai ancora in fresco una bottiglia di prosecco da gustare sul terrazzino!

Alice

Une vraie régale

4.8

L’emplacement, l’utilisation de l’espace, les informations touristiques très complètes, l’accueil et la gentillesse de la propriétaire, le détail par rapport aux besoins des vacanciers

On pourra peut-être revoir un peu la vaisselle (plat au four alors qu’il n’y a pas de four, quelques assiettes et verres de plus), mettre un rideau de douche qui ne colle pas à la peau.

Jean Michel

Cher Jean Michel, Votre commentaire me rend très heureux! Vous avez raison pour la tente, nous voulons mettre une porte en verre, ce qui est plus confortable et esthétiquement agréable. Malheureusement, nous n’avons pas eu le temps parce que les clients entrent et sortent le même jour! Mais sûrement, nous le ferons à l’avenir, merci pour vos précieux conseils!

Alice

Thanks! We had a memorable trip!
