STUNNING PROPERTY, WONDERFUL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We chose this property as we wanted to be near Lake Orta (relatively unknown to UK tourists compared to the others, and arguably the most beautiful). Having driven from the UK we were greeted by the lovely Melania who takes care of the house in the absence of the owner. Melania is from the village and could not be more helpful.
The house itself is on a fairly quiet road on the edge of a beautiful but rather mysteriously quiet town called Soriso. I can only imagine that this (not all that small) place has been abandoned over the years as there seemed to be many empty properties throughout the town. It is most definitely off the tourist trail and is not mentioned in any guide books except for it's 2 Michelin-starred restaurant (excellent, old-school dining!).
There is a small shop and a recently opened bar, but a wander around the streets reveals a charming glimpse of the past - untouched by the modern era. The church and it's incredible views are a must visit and would be besieged by tourists in any other part of Italy.
The house is simply magnificent. Renovated in an extremely stylish way with respect for tradition but with wonderful modern touches, it is extremely spacious (we were 2 adults and 2 children under 7 with 2 guests for a few nights) with a nice garden. The swimming pool was excellent (mild saltwater, not chlorine) and most welcome as the temperature was above 30c for most of our two week stay.
The outdoor kitchen was very special (especially for someone like me who loves to cook!) and there are plenty of places to sit and a large patio table.
The only negative thing I would say is that the garden is overlooked (at the side) by another house. The neighbours were very aware of this though and spent their time on the other side of their house so it was not an issue. The owner is obviously tryng to address this with a tree 'hedge', so in a few years this won't be a problem!
The views from the property are stunning, particularly from the bedrooms and the place is extremely quiet at night (although rather hot if you don't open the windows - there is no a/c).
Plenty of room to securely park a couple of cars if necessary (the property is gated) and we found that it made an excellent base for exploring the area - all the lakes and mountains within reach with the astounding Lake Orta a few minutes away. The nearby Lido di Gozzano was a nice place for a swim in the lake and a bite to eat. Good choice of supermarkets and shops very near by.

A WONDERFUL GEM!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we found this wonderful gem online we knew it was very special and with the assistance of Annette dAlfonso we were able to secure a reservation for a week early July 2013…arriving very late in the evening Melania was there to greet us with a very warm Italian welcome and a much appreciated offer of organising pizza for us all!

As a family of four adults and three children under the age of four the house offered amazing space both inside and out. Home from home the kitchen is very well equipped and all the rooms are generously proportioned and attractively furnished. The gardens and swimming pool (though cold) were put to great use with outdoor dining a delightful daily event.

Trips to Stresa, Isola Bella and Lake Maggiore were some of our highlights and with an abundance of villages nearby we were spoilt for choice.

A wonderful house in a charming location which we would happily go back to and recommend with pleasure – thank you Melania for making our stay so very special!

LOVELY VILLA IN PRETTY VILLAGE NEAR LAKE ORTA

  • 4 of 5
This is a beautiful old house in a central location in Soriso village. We stayed for 1 week, our party was 4 adults and 2 teenage boys and we found the house very spacious and comfortable. Having 2 lounges (1 with tv and dvd) was great with younger people in our group and the free wifi very useful, it even worked in the garden!

We felt the €130 cleaning fee was excessive, however the house was immaculate on arrival. All linen is provided, a wonderful range of cooking utensils and equipment is available and the house feels like a home not just a holiday rental. We did find the beds uncomfortable by the end of the week as the mTresses Re foam not sprung but accept this is a personal issue.

The garden is overlooked by one house (not shown in the photos) however this caused no problems and our neighbours were very friendly and pleasant. Soriso is a small pretty village with a useful local shop, pharmacy, post office and even a small bar. We didn't visit the Michelin star restaurant (a bit too pricey) but recommend the restaurant 15 mins walk away called Il Laghetto della Gelata.
There is a choice of about 6 supermarkets within 10 mins drive with everything you could need - really delicious food and wines at great prices!

The stunningly beautiful town of Orta San Giulio is 10 mins away and has a range of restaurants and shops, not to be missed. Lake Maggiore is 45 mins drive and also well worth visiting.

Overall a great house in a lovely location which we would go back to and recommend with pleasure!

WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at the Villa with 2 families with kids and have had a wonderful time. The house has a great old Italian characteristic look and feel (floor and walls) and plenty of room and good equipment.

The owners and hostess are really friendly and were also very helpful if you have any questions or want to get sightseeing tips. The spot is a great base to explore the lakes of Orta and Maggiore and other small places in the area (such as Ghemme).

We have also dined at the Soriso Restaurant just 200 metres from the Villa (currently 2 Michelin stars). Excellent food but we recommend not to go for the full menu (classic or mare e terra) but to order alla carte instead (unless you are extremely hungry!!).

A WONDERFUL FAMILY HOLIDAY AT VILLA PACE

  • 5 of 5
Villa Pace is a large, well furnished and beautiful Villa in Soriso. It is in easy driving distance of Lake Orta and Lake Maggiore. The village is quiet and peaceful with friendly locals. Our welcome to the Villa was fantastic and if we needed any help it was just a phone call away. We were over for a family wedding and the Villa is even larger than it looks on the website! The views over to the alps and surrounding countryside are stunning and it was lovely to stay in a place with an authentic Italian feel.
We would certainly return to the area and to this immaculate Villa again as there is much left to explore and we have many happy memories.

AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent a week at the beautiful Villa Pace.

We were expecting it to be nice from looking at the photos but we're blown away when we eventually got there (make sure you get good directions from Milan airport as it took us 2 1/2 hours to do a journey that should have taken 45 mins!).

It totally exceeded all expectations of our whole group which consisted of myself, my husband, our 2 boys (4 and 6 years) and my mother and step-father.

We were very warmly greeted by the owner Mariella who couldn't do enough for us - even leaving us a lovely bottle of wine to ease the stress of the journey! The rooms are huge and beautifully decorated and furnished. We felt like Italian royalty!

There is everything you could possible want (except a DVD player but there was an english channel). We have stayed in a number of villas over the years and this was definitely the most well equipped - a real home from home.

The gardens were lovely - loads of space for the children to run around and to sunbathe and a fantastic outside kitchen and table. We were the first to use the pool which, although cold, was lovely. The boys spent hours in it every day.

The village is quiet but very Italian. The views from the Villa are spectacular. There is a shop in the village and a 3 star Michelin restaurant (lovely food but incredibly expensive and very dated). It takes about 10 mins to drive down the Lake Orta which is wonderful. Would definitely recommend Venus bar for food and drink. Lots of lovely, quirky shops.

Will definitely return to Villa Pace hopefully in the not to distant future.

In Soriso, a quiet, very nice place (463m), you can also enjoy summer days in a fresh breeze. On Orta’s Lake, (5km away) we recommend the beautiful beach of Lido of Gozzano. Arona, a pretty town on Maggiore’s Lake, is 15km away. From here you can take a battle and have an amazing tour of all the Lake (1 day ). Well known, is the mountain 'Mottarrone' (hig. 1200 m) from which you can enjoy a spectacular view of the lakes. In the north, about 1.5 hours drive, there are Ossola Valley and the Simplon Pass. For shopping enthusiasts, we suggest in the direction Novara, Romagnano Sesia (18 km)with outlets of the best Italian Cashmere (Loro Piana, Agnona, Colombo, ect.). For wine lovers, there are the 'Ghemme' hills with their high-quality wines. For the connoisseurs of good food we have some good recommendations about which are the best products to buy: Salame della Duja, delicious baked cakes and bisquits (Brutti ma Buoni) and the delicious cheese Gorgonzola.
