About the property

Casa Frey

Casa Frey is a renovated typical old stone house.

Guests can enjoy the garden where is a pool of 4x8 meters and 1.30 meters deep, solar heated (then working on sunny days). The outside of the house has been left untouched while inside it has been converted in 4 apartments. Frey 1 on the ground floor is a two-bedroom apartment sleeping up to 5 people. Frey 2 on 2 levels on the ground floor is a one bedroom apartment sleeping up to 4 people. Frey 3 on the first floor is a one-bedroom apartment sleeping 2 people. The house is situated at the edge of the little hamlet of Vacciago immersed in beautiful wooded countryside, though not isolated from other houses. Vacciago is a small paradise, where nature has been conserved. Peace is spread among the XVIII Century buildings and keeps alive the atmosphere of ancient times. Casa Frey is very comfortable, with heating for winter time and simple but confortable furniture, so it offers welcome hospitality through out the year.

About Lake Orta: Lake Orta, the ancient “Cusius” is an oasis of alpine greenery enriched with marvellous gardens and green meadows in a Mediterranean climate. Lake Orta really is a 'man-sized lake' because, with a local writer’s words, it can 'be embraced at a single glance'. From the many balconies overlooking it, from one shore and from the other, Cusio offers the visitor the gift of a great, soft beauty which calls to contemplation, to the stopping of time in a place one would wish never to leave. But Lake Orta, with its un-doubtful tourist vocation, will also offer you any kind of amusements and sports lovers will also be able to practice all water sports (sailing, surfing, canoeing, water-skiing, etc.), horse-riding, golf and tennis.

Eating out: This is such a delight in Italy, and Lake Orta is no exception. There is a wide range of pizzerias, trattorias and restaurants for varying pockets and tastes, starting about 500m from Casa Frey. Milan, the nearest major city is 80 km away, Lake Maggiore is 25 km away and Malpensa airport 45 km.

Walks: There are many beautiful walks in the area. We provide a description of walks, excursions and one-day trips. About 100 yards from the house, the parish church of St. Antonio affords, from its grassy terrace, a fine view of Lake Orta with its enchanting island and the 13th century Torre di Buccione.

Lake Orta is the most enchanting lake in Northern Italy thanks to the quiet beauty of the landscape, its fascinating history and its wealth of artistic treasures. The small village of Vacciago is only 5 km from Orta, the little 'capital' of the lake and 25 km from Stresa and Lake Maggiore. Casa Frey is a very good base to explore all the lakes area. Lake Orta offers a truly Italian experience. It has retained its spirit and you will be captivated.

A wonderful place to enjoy the holiday!

  • 5 of 5

After 2009 we have enjoyed in 2010 for the second time our summer holiday in casa frey. In 2009 we were in the apartment Casa Frey 4 and in 2010 in the apartment Casa Frey 3. Both apartments are very nice and cozy and were very clean with the adoption.

The contact with the landlady was always very pleasant and friendly – at the reservation, on arrival, during the stay and even with the return of the apartment. And also the service was always very courteous.

The house Casa Frey is beautifully situated in the countryside. The beautiful garden with the swimming pool is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the day. In the surroundings of the village Vacciago and at the Lake Orta there are many good restaurants. And shopping facilities can be achieved in a short time.

We can recommend Casa Frey really. We will come back - the next time we have planned in 2011 :-)

Traumferien in Casa Frey am Orta-See

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten die Wohnung in der obersten Etage zur Verfügung (ca. 60 qm), sehr hell und freundlich, gut ausgestattet. Die Gartenanlage mit dem Pool ist ein Traum. Der See mit seinem materischen Hauptort San Julia ist fußläufig erreichbar, ebenso viele Wanderwege in sehr schöner Natur. Alles in allem haben wir hier einen sehr schönen Urlaub verlebt. Absolut zum empfehlen!

Wir möchten uns nochmal ganz herzlich bei unserer Gastgeberin Ilaria für Ihre sympathische und stets hilfsbereite Betreuung bedanken (und das auch noch in deutsch, neben andere Sprachen!), Das war toll!

schönes Haus und nette Gastgeber

  • 4 of 5

Die Casa Frey hält, was die Homepage verspricht. Die Anlage ist gepflegt und komfortabel. Die Einrichtung der Zimmer und der Küche macht die Mitnahme von zusätzlichen Sachen unnötig. Die Betreuung durch die - sehr gut englisch sprechenden - Gastgeber ist angenehm, aber unaufdringlich. Der Ort ist gemütlich und bietet mit dem Geschäft "La Bottega" eine schöne und typische Einkaufsmöglichkeit an sieben Tagen der Woche.
