“Lovely apartment, great location, beautiful view”
Reviewed June 5, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This was a lovely apartment, with a contemporary style and was very clean and provided everything we needed. The apartment looks over the main square, Piazza Motta, of the town and across to the island of St Guilio.
There is a small balcony at the back which is sheltered and good for hot days. You can also use the roof terrace which has more fantastic views and is lovely and sunny. The kitchen was fine for cooking basic meals.
The only downside of the apartment was that it was quite noisy at night, as the bedroom is at the front with windows overlooking the square, where there were people out drinking and chatting late at night which you could hear very clearly!

“Brilliant view as advertised but accommodation a little tired”
Reviewed May 19, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The position overlooking the main square in Orta San Giulia is just perfect. The view across the lake is beautiful - just as advertised. The house is old and full of character externally but it has problems internally. Unfortunately, the flat is not a "magnificent apartment" - just about everything about the flat was a little bit wrong. The shutters don't close properly so you can't cut out the early morning sun (the curtains are net only). While the mattress and quilts are comfortable the bed frame is very wobbly - you feel the bed shake when your partner turns in their sleep. The bathroom door doesn't close properly making every sound and smell freely available to all! The shower door fell off its runner a couple of times during our stay. The kitchen equipment could do with a refresh, e.g. the coffee percolator handle is half -melted so it is difficult to hold and none of the small kitchen knives is sharp enough to prepare vegetables.
The stucco on the chimney on the roof came off (and dropped pieces onto the cafe below). Work was done promptly to make it safe again but we couldn't enjoy the roof terrace as much as other visitors have.
PS Our own house in the UK is 200 years' old and contains a holiday flat so we know what to expect..

Hi Jennifer,
I do understand you had a bit of a traumatic week with the roof terrace which I am happy to say is now fixed and cleared. I will take on board your comments although a few items we were unaware and am pleased you have bought it to our notice such as such as the shower door, coffee machine and knives which are easily replaceable.
I am pleased you enjoyed Orta as it is a very beautiful place.
Regards,
Raquel

“Location, location, location”
Reviewed September 12, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Nothing prepared us for the amazing view from the apartment. It is on the main piazza looking down on the pretty square and then across the boats to the island and cliffs beyond. We couldn't stop taking photos. The bed was really comfortable and the apartment had loads of character and history. Thank you Max and family for being so helpful... Especially getting the suitcases to the apartment.
