Quaint Cottage in Good location

  • 4 of 5

We loved the fact that the house was 400 years old and had a private courtyard. The house has plenty of space. Llaria was very friendly and helpful, giving us lots of information about the house and surrounding area, including where the nearest food store was (10 minutes walk from the house). This house would be absolutely wonderful in the the summer since it would stay cool with the thick stone walls, and it has a pool! When we were there in May the weather was a bit cool. The house could at times feel a bit cold and a few of the heaters did not not work. Having said this, the house has a lot of character and we very much enjoyed our stay there. It is in a great location to visit both Lake Orta and Lake Maggiore.

Charming character filled house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights at Casa Lorella with friends. The house was perfect for 2 couples. It has a real charm about it largely because of the authentic features which have been retained.

Ilaria was very helpful with the booking and provided us with comprehensive information on local services and sights. She speaks excellent English which was a bonus for us.

The house has it's own parking space which was handy for us, although the access is down a narrow lane. The property was clean and well maintained and has quite a spacious feel to it, especially with the large outdoor area.

For us the only drawback was possibly the lack of internet access, though this was avaiable at the Hotel Britain approx 200m away if you ate or drank there.

Spacious Old House in Charming Surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay in Casa Lorella. The house is a charming old family house, retaining many typical features. It is spacious, comfortable and well equipped (gas stove and oven, washing machine, iron).

The real joy however is the sense of outdoor living - it seems every room opens onto either the patio or balcony and whether indoors or out there is always a sense of light and air. The house is located amongst a handful of others all similar in character and one gets a real sense of living amongst the Italians. The view of the lake and surrounding mountains is breath taking.

Just a few hundred metres away is the village shop - run by the attentive Edo - selling fresh bread daily as well as the full range of provisions one might need. There are two restaurants within walking distance (one is 5 minutes, the other 15).

Ilaria and her family are always on call in case of need and so helpful.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

Une maison typique idéale pour une famille

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une très belle semaine de vacances en famille à Casa Lorella. L'accueil d'Ilaria avant et pendant notre séjour était parfait. Elle a pu répondre à toutes nos questions, parle parfaitement français et a mis à notre disposition tout le nécessaire pour notre séjour : tablettes lave-vaisselles, serviettes de toilette, couvertures... La maison était parfaitement propre à notre arrivée et Ilaria avait allumé le chauffage car les nuits étaient encore un peu fraiches à cette période (séjour début avril).

Nous avons eu un temps magnifique et les enfants ont pu profiter pleinement de la cour extérieure qui est très ensoleillée et accessible à la fois de la chambre parentale, de la cuisine et du séjour. Les transats nous ont permis de nous relaxer au soleil et nous avons pu prendre les déjeuners et petits déjeuner au soleil dans la cour. Nous n'avons pas pu profiter de la piscine car l'eau était trop fraiche (début avril) même si Ilaria l'avait préparée pour que nous puissions nous baigner si nous le souhaitions.

La cuisine et la salle de bain sont simples et typiques mais propres et avec tout ce qu'il faut (micro-onde, lave-vaisselle, lave-linge...).

La situation de la maison est idéale : au calme dans un village charmant et typique, épicerie et bar à 5 minutes à pied, à 5 minutes en voiture d'Orta San Giulio et du lac d'Orta, à 30 minutes de Verbania et du Lac Majeur.

La région est magnifique au printemps avec tous les jardins fleuris et sans trop d'afflux touristique, je conseille cette période pour la visiter.

Une agréable maison

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans la maison. Illaria répond rapidement aux mails et nous a donné des informations très détaillées et précises avant notre arrivée, ce qui nous a permis de bien préparer notre séjour avec nos 3 enfants dont 1 bébé. Nous avons été chaleureusement accueilli et elle nous a donné de bons conseils et des cartes pour nous repérer à notre arrivée, ce qui était très appréciable. De plus, elle est resté disponible pour répondre à nos questions pendant le séjour. La location était très propre et bien entretenue. Les enfants ont adoré la piscine dans laquelle ils se sont beaucoup amusés. La cuisine est très bien équipée, et nous n'avons manqué de rien pendant le séjour: il y avait beaucoup de linge de toilette pour tout le monde (nous n'avons pas tout utilisé et nous étions 5!), produit vaisselle, tablette lave vaisselle... tout est là!

La maison est bien située, à environ 10' de Orta en voiture (de nombreux restaurants sont rapidement accessibles), 5' à pied d'une petite épicerie que nous avons vraiment appréciée en raison de la gentillesse du commerçant et des produits proposés, et nous avons mis 40' pour aller à Stresia - Lac Majeur en passant par la montagne. Nous sommes restés 1 semaine pour profiter de la région, mais nous n'avons encore pas tout vu, il y a tellement de possibilités d'activités! Bref, des vacances formidables en famille. Oui, nous allons recommander la location, sans réserve.
