About Francesca

The house belongs to my family since the early 80's. I started going there as a child and used to spend my entire summer overthere. I have wonderful memories of that time.

I'm 24 years old and live in New York, where I work as a freelance photographer and film producer.

Francesca purchased this house in 1982

Why Francesca chose Novara

I've been living abroad for almost five years now, so my family and I decided to renovate this property and rent it out throught the year, so other people can enjoy our wonderful getaway.

A wonderful place to stay - don't hesitate

  • 5 of 5

We loved our trip to Orta and this was the best rental we had on our trip. It has plenty of room, lots of amenities, a great layout, all in a wonderful old building. Yes, as others say, the covered porch is the absolute highlight of the apartment. You'll want to sit out there all the time. Orta is charming and this place is close to everything. Note that it can be quite noisy at night. That was a bit of a surprise. You are so close that late night revelers' noise from neighboring restaurants - and some birds who stay up all night chirping - did make it a little hard to sleep. Small price to pay for all the other wonderful things, but it is notable. Donatella, who is facilitates the rental for the owner, is delightful and makes everything easy as can be. We used the garage which was so helpful. We are a family of four who used both bedrooms with queens and then a couch/bed in a small tv alcove that worked for our second son so everyone had their space. We miss Orta very much - it was truly a highlight of our European vacation.

Wonderful apartment in Central Lake Ortsa

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment just a few steps away from the main town square. It was well equipped and had great bathroom with large showers. The kitchen was fully stocked with enough items to put together meals. The best thing was to partly enclosed balcony. We had all our meal outside under cover with a little view of the lake. The only problem we had was with the wi-fi. Very slow, perhaps it knew we need a break away from too much information. Great place and we hope to be back again someday.

Beautiful Apartment in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My family, including our four year old son, rented the apartment for a week in April 2015. The apartment, and Orta generally, is one the most charming places we've ever stayed while on holiday. The apartment is a large duplex with two well-furnished bedrooms along with two very clean, modern bathrooms. The highlight is absolutely the covered outdoor terrace with views of the lake and overlooking a small piazzetta. We ate every breakfast on the terrace and sat out most nights. The apartment is perfectly located, with a small shop right downstairs and a 2-minute walk to the main square. The private parking space is only 5 minutes away and invaluable given the limited parking. Booking with Francesca was effortless and she very understanding when we had to make an adjustment to our reservation. Check-in was flawless and Donatella, who greeted us on arrival, was very helpful. Overall, a wonderful experience in a beautiful apartment.

I heart ORTA!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Orta is beautiful! I am so glad we found this gem of a place. It made our stay even more wonderful by staying at Francesca's charming house. It was comfortable with stunning views of the mountains and the lake! It was very conveniently located as there are a number of restaurants close by and even a coffee shop across. Both Donatella and Giorgio (property managers) were extremely helpful and spoke good English. Definitely recommended!

Francesca's house is a beautiful little get away. Donatella(she looks after the property) speaks excellent english and was fantastic, meeting us and getting us sorted with all that we needed regarding parking the car and everything to do with the house. She was only a phone call away. We loved the open fireplace, being so close to the lake and the village square. Orta San Giulio is a lovely little lake side village. The same feel as Bellagio (where we have always previously visited) but smaller and without the large numbers of tourists. More of a local feel. Loved it!
