“Perfect stay”

people found this review helpful

The location of this apartment couldn't have been more perfect. Right in the centre of Orta san Giulio. It had everything we could have wanted for a self catering apartment. It was our first time travelling abroad with our toddler in tow and the owner, Andrea, went out of his way to help us settle in, including arranging taxis and meeting us in town on arrival. Couldn't recommend this apartment highly enough!

“Couldn't imagine a better place to stay in Orta!”
Reviewed October 22, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

people found this review helpful

My wife and I stayed in the apartment for 4 days on our honeymoon in late-September 2014. It was a perfect place to unwind after spending the previous week hiking in Switzerland. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The apartment had all the comforts of home, almost to the point we were ready to move in! Everything was very clean and modern. The kitchen was well stocked (spices, cooking oils, etc.) and has everything you need to cook full meals (stove/oven, refrigerator and dishwasher). Despite the apartment being somewhat small, you did not feel cramped as the space was used very well.

The location of the apartment was unbeatable. It was a stone's throw away from the main square in town, with restaurants, bars, as well as a ferry to Isola San Giulio. Also, it was right around the corner from the fruit/vegetable store....which was very nice as we ended up cooking a few nights while there. Short walk up the hill to the Sacro Monte. A bit far from the train-station, however Andrea was very helpful and not only picked us up from the station, but dropped us off as well (the walk is certainly do-able though).

Orta San Giulio itself was very nice. A bit "sleepy", as we were there mid-week, but that is exactly what we wanted. Perfect place for couples or families. A very easy place to relax; we were content to just wander through the maze of medieval streets and spend time hanging out by the lake, swimming and sunbathing. That being said, if we were to visit again, we would probably have rented a car to explore the surrounding area. You can easily see most, if not all, of the town by foot.

Finally, have to mention how great Andrea and his mother were. Very accommodating and very friendly. We felt very welcomed immediately after arriving, and appreciated all the small touches, such as the bottle of limoncello and prosecco they gave us. All in all, we had a great time while there and are hopefully lucky enough to visit again sometime in the future.

“Great appartment with wonderful hosts in lovely town!”
Reviewed August 12, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The appartment is right in the middle of the lovely little town of Orta San Giulio. It's a great appartment that has everything in it you could possibly want, even some food and drinks on our arrival. Maybe the only thing missing is a place to sit outside, but as you're only 50 meters from the lake, that's not really a problem. Andrea and his mother are the best hosts you can imagine, providing great service and lots of information. Andrea, who speaks English fluently, is constantly available to answer questions. He even offered to pick us up at the trainstation and took us back on our return! To us, everything was perfect and we can truely recommend this place to everyone!

“Perfect place to stay in Orta San Giulio!”
Reviewed June 9, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

If you are looking for a clean, comfortable, well-equipped, perfectly located apartment in Orta San Giulio, look no further than this or the companion apartment (with a more spacious living area but somewhat smaller bedroom and bathroom) called Apartment Cusius. The apartments are located up some flights of stairs (so you do need to be able to climb stairs), in an old building right in the heart of this small city, a very short walk from the main square. The owner Andrea was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish, from when we initially inquired about the apartment until he promptly returned our security deposit and walked us to the spot where the taxi he had called to take us to the Milan airport met us. Andrea and his mother are lovely people, so welcoming and hospitable, who went out of their way to make sure that everything was ready for us and to show us around the apartment. (They even stocked the kitchen with some food and drink, which we really appreciated.) If we ever return to Orta San Giulio, we'd happily stay here again!

“Charming Apartment in the Perfect Location”
Reviewed May 6, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

We decided at the last minute to head south to Lake Orta for the May 1st Holiday weekend. Having two small children (3 & 6), we typically prefer staying in vacation rentals for the flexibility it offers with meals, nap schedules, etc. What luck we had to find a vacancy in this charming apartment! Andrea responded to my request for availability within an hour, and was very professional, prompt and accommodating during the booking process. He went out of his way to meet us upon our arrival, showing us to the reserved covered parking garage (a HUGE bonus in San Guilio) and helping us to the apartment with our luggage.
The apartment couldn't have been nicer. It was in the most amazing location right in the middle of the village--perfect for wandering the streets, shopping, and dining in all the lovely restaurants. It had clearly been recently renovated with modern ammenities, but retained it's old world charm with wooden beams on the ceilings, wooden shutters and the windy staircase leading to the entrance. There was milk, fruit, chips, Prosecco, and other staples required for light cooking already in the kitchen--a lovely gesture that saved us having to run and find a store after a 5 hour drive. Andrea had arranged for a baby cot for our youngest child, and the older one slept very comfortably on the fold-out sofa bed in the living room. The beds were comfortable, and the village was very quiet and peaceful at night.
This apartment exceeded my expectations. I look forward to returning, and we will send all our friends and relatives in Andrea's direction without hesitation!
