Beautiful house in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house over Easter as a family and had a great time. The garden is massive and the house beautifully furnished with everything we needed, even for cooking for a large family. There is one big table inside and two big tables outside which are great for seating a big group. Hot water in the morning was a bit hit and miss but then this is an old house. The owners were really helpful, too. In advance to our trip, we had a lot of questions and the owners really went out of their way to help us, gave us tips for restaurants and excursions and generally made sure that we had everything we needed. We also really enjoyed the area. Lake Orta is beautiful and much less busy than Lago Maggiore or Lake Como. The location is also great. It’s a 10 minutes’ drive to Orta San Guilio, the prettiest town on Lake Orta and 30 minutes’ drive to the western shore of Lago Maggiore. We also went for a hike from Stresa to Mottarone while we were there, taking the funicular one way, which was beautiful.

Schönes Haus mit wundervollem Garten

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren 4 Personen und hatten sehr viel Platz im Haus, aber es ist auch gut für 8 Personen geeignet. Die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet und die Spülmaschine ein Traum. Der Garten ist sehr schön mit den vielen großen Bäumen und rund ums Haus findet man immer den gewünschten Platz, ob Sonne oder Schatten. Auch der Ausblick auf den See ist sehr schön und man kann sehr viel unternehmen und der Trubel im Gegensatz zu den anderen großen Seen hält sich in Grenzen. Wir würden jederzeit wieder kommen. Grazie tante, Alfredo!

Schönes Haus mit tollem Garten

  • 5 of 5

Die Villa Villacombe liegt inmitten eines wunderschönen, sehr gepflegten Gartens mit teilweisem Seeblick. Gerade für kleine Kinder ist das schattige Grundstück ein Traum. Es bietet genug Platz zum Spielen und Toben aber auch ruhige Örtchen unter den großen Bäumen um die Seele in der Hängematte baumeln zu lassen.

Die Villa verfügt über fünf Räume, in denen man schlafen kann. Zwei Zimmer mit einem akzeptablen Doppelbett, zwei Kinderzimmer und ein kleineres Zimmer mit einer Ausziehcouch. Leider sind einige Betten schon sehr durchgelegen.

Die Küchenausstattung ist sehr gut. In der Küche ist ein Essplatz für 6 Personen und auf der großen Terrasse draußen ein Tisch für bis zu 10 Personen. Im Garten befindet sich zudem eine Grillstelle.

Im nächstgelegenen Dorf gibt es ein Strandbad mit Sandstrand (mit Eintritt). Der Ortasee war wunderbar warm und hat zum Baden eingeladen. Leider benötigt man für die meisten Aktivitäten ein Auto.

Dennoch, auf dem Grundstück lässt es sich wunderbar auch in der Mittagshitze aushalten. Für die Kinder hatten wir einfach ein Planschbecken mitgenommen!

Great calm place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time with 2 families in the Villa. Huge garden, well equipped kitchen and a lot of charme. Bose Sound System in the living room, a piano, lots of games and even bikes were at the house. You definitively should have a car...but if you like cycling than there are many nice (and hilly) tracks. It is just some minutes to the beautiful City Orta San Giulio and to some nice lake beaches.

Hints and tips from the owner

Lake Orta is rich in artistic and cultural treasures, ideal for hiking and walking throughout the year, but also to relax on the beach in the warmer months. The town of Orta San Giulio, included among the most beautiful towns in Italy, still retains its old-world charm with its characteristic historical center animated by bars, restaurants, wine bars and shops.

On the hill above the town you can visit the Sacro Monte, a UNESCO world heritage site.

As an alternative to relaxing life in the garden, you can practice different sports on the lake (SWIMMING, SAILING, WINDSURF and SPORTS, FISHING AND BOAT TRIPS) as well as numerous WALKS and HIKES, by bike, mountain bike or horseback.

A few kilometers away are several GOLF COURSES (5 fields include 2 to 27 holes, the first 18 holes, two 9-hole); are available tennis TENNIS (clay or synthetic), RIDING, mini golf and spa SPA.

The area also offers many attractions to lovers.
