We had the most amazing time at Villa Antica Colonia. What a place. So romantic so confortable and so beautiful. Monica was a wonderful host who made our stay even more pleasant. We enjoyed the wonderful view which is actually even better in real life than on the photos. If you are looking for a place to relax and breathe in the atmosphere of the beautiful and friendly Italy at its best you know where to go. And yes I can also be a very critical reviewer but Villa Antica Colonia deserves 5 stars for every aspect. Thank you so much for everything

Villa Antica Colonia is a real gem with a stunning view to Lago d’orta. We had a great and relaxing week enjoying our wonderful apartment, garden and the fantastic view to the lake and the beautiful landscape. Our hostess Monica is so friendly and helpful and made our stay easy and plesant. During our stay we rented Ebikes experiencing the beautiful nature by bike and we had a super dinner at the restaurant only 50 meters from Villa Antica Colonia. We can only recommend Villa Antica Colonia..

We were 8 adults and 2 little kids staying for almost a week in this amazing place so we rented the entire place. It was one of the best vacations for all of us! The house itself is huge and beautiful. Everything is very clean and highly maintained. The central kitchen (as well as each apartments' kitchen) is equipped with anything you can think of, and the garden is endless, with many sitting areas. Wherever you look, it's beautiful. Even though there was no real entertainment for kids, they love it too! In addition to all that, Monica and Markus are the nicest hosts. They were really kind and accommodated any request or question we had. We love this place and can't wait to go back!

I almost don't want to recommend this place for fear it will become too popular. The villa offers fantastic views and each one seems to offer a level of privacy with an outside space for each apartment. You can happily stay there without really realising anyone else is there. The apartment has everything you might reasonably need while still feeling homely. Only complaint is a lake of large water glasses. The apartment offers water, beer and wine for sale at great prices. Owners are friendly and accommodating. A great place to stay.

Stayed at Giuseppe for a week September 2015 and wished we has stayed longer. We booked directly by email. Living room is as beautiful as the photos and also very comfortable. A very fine terrace with great views over Lago D'Orta where we spent a lot of time. Take binoculars. We mainly self-catered. Kitchen is good and helpfully had some some useful basics. There is a cellar in the villa which sounds expensive but included some very reasonable choices. Some good local walking and we swam in the lake. Visit to Strona Valley strongly recommended (but scared road). We would go back.
