Happy holiday in Ciao Sole.

We arrived in pouring rain but were still quite impressed with our flat.
My husband and I and our two teenage boys were quite comfortable and had everything we needed. The bonus for me was the lovely deep bath in our ensuite bathroom. This was very important to us as when sharing a hotel room with two teenage boys with only 1 bathroom...it soons becomes the most stressful part of our holiday! Not this time though- both bathrooms were spacious with powerful showers and lots of hot water. The beds were very comfortable and our queen size was lovely as that's what we have at home.
Once we got settled in we found lots of books, guides, maps and other information that was very useful. The big refridgerater was more than adequate and we could put lof drinks in it for our thirsty boys. The kitchen was really well equipped with lots of dishes, cooking utensils and other essentials. Our area outside the apartment was also well used at lunch times and for drying clothes on the airer. The washing machine was great as we only brought one beach towel each and it was nice to freshen them up. The pool area was also quite popular with our family. Beautiful views from the pool. I would say that the water was too cold for me but the three males in my family would not be put off by it and swam everyday. The villa itself was in a quiet area with beautiful views and a good location obut a car was essential.
It was over all a really great holiday and I would recommend it to my friends.

Fabulous apartment in a great location

We had a wonderful week long stay in the Dolce Vita apartment of Villa Gelsomina. The apartment was immaculately clean and really well equipped. The views from the balconies are stunning (the website photos look impressive but nothing can really compare to the real thing).

Orta town is an hour's walk or a five minute drive away. It's a beautiful little town with lots to see and do. Lake Maggiore, Milan and Switzerland are just short drives away so we were really spoilt for things to do. One of our highlights was to sit and enjoy a glass of wine or a coffee in the square in Orta at the end of the day.

We have to give a special thanks to William for the detailed information he provided about the area, making sure that everything about our stay was perfect.

We can’t wait to return.
Owner's Response: We're really delighted you enjoyed your stay at Villa Gelsomina and Lake Orta!

Villa Gelsomina is just 3km from the lakeside village of Orta San Giulio, where there are mouth-watering restaurants, cafes, pizzerias, trattorias and gelaterias (particularly good!) catering for all tastes and ages. There is also a great local restaurant in walking distance (400m). Many wonderful day trips can be made in the area, at Lake Orta, Lake Maggiore, and in the mountains. We provide descriptions of a series of favourite local walks, most of which start from your front door! Great beach with all facilities (sunbeds, pedalos, canoes, cafe etc.) at Miami at the south end of the lake, lots of other places to swim. Boat trips on Lake Orta, rowing boats for hire at Orta San Giulio. 1 hour's drive from Milan, just 90 minutes from Turin. Skiing locally on the Mottarone, Val Vigezzo, or Macugnaga.
