Ideal position.Short walk from centre.Gated parking a real bonus.Ideally placed for walks along lake and visit to join.Views from balcony overlooking lake superb.Owner met us at property,eager to please and ensure everything was right.With goodwill on both sides we were able to communicate effectively.Kitchen could do with few more small implements ,for example,corkscrew which is now there!
Would have no hesitation with returning here to this apartment
Loved lake region
VERBO said property manager spoke English he did not. Check in was good. Liked location . Most VERBO renters want to cook some of their own meals so kitchen needs to be better equipped with toaster and some condiments etc. Over all accommodation was nice but needs new couch. Enjoyed our stay.
Only suitable for self catering if you have own transport
We (2 of us) came to Orta San Giulio by train ( which HomeAway and the owner knew) so were reliant on buying provisions locally. This proved very challenging as the small shops didn’t have fresh foodstuffs and having no car ( and there was no bus)we were unable to get to any super market. We ended up eating out much more than intended.
The description of the apartment said it catered for 6 . This we’d dispute as minimal pans and general cooking equipment. Also only 3 dining chairs and very small table and 2 chairs on balcony. In contrast to this there were good quality ‘white goods’ ( fridge/freezer, dishwasher, 4 burner gas cooker with electric oven as well as washing machine) so if we had transport cooking and self catering would have been fine.
The owner had been advised of our time of arrival and yet he wasn’t there and we were left outside locked gates until we were able to contact him. Also he didn’t speak any English which had been stated in the property description.
This is the first time I’ve written a less than glowing report and is only to advise those thinking of booking this apartment in the future.
The position of the property and the views were fantastic and despite the difficulties we enjoyed our stay.
Thank you for your stay, regarding the layout of the apartment (chairs, pots, cutlery) it is modulated based on the number of guests. For the reception a phone call is enough and in less than 5 minutes I reach the structure (no guest has waited more than 5 minutes). In Orta, a small tourist village, there are no supermarkets but various shops selling fresh and excellent products, including local products.
Great location, great value
The Azalea suite in residence Diania is a perfectly nice if not luxe apartment with a great view of the lake and most everything you'd need.
The property is located a short walk to the historic center, which has beatiful views, old churches, and a ferry to Isola San Giulio, home to a Benedictine convent and beautiful church.
Make sure when you select this property to bring the thin three-prong European adapters...most of the outlets were old school Italian, and just one took the thicker "German" style of adapter. That was our only issue, really.
Can't beat the price!
A charming place
Clean, tidy and spacious,a perfect elevated location with lake and town views from a long balcony. Secure parking on site and a 10 minute walk from the town centre. A quiet location,and Remo, the host charming and welcoming. We had a delightful stay.
Orta San Giulio is a nice place, for the reception I do my best, thanks for the review, it allows me to improve.
Thanks Remo De Franceschi.
Beautiful views, great location
The holds panoramic views of the lake from the balcony. Highly spacious with one large bedroom and two sofa beds. Great location, 15 min walk to square. Remo is extremely helpful and kind. Would highly recommend for a self catering (has a gas fired 4 place hob highly useful) break. Would definitely return
thanks for the review, the house is in a beautiful and strategic position, I will always do the best to make it comfortable and clean.
possibility of walking and cycling, enogastronomic tours being the villages of the lake basin full of taverns and restaurants. On the shores of a lake you can practice the residence Diania is located at 300 mt. from the center of Orta picturesque village overlooking the lake with the same name and facing the island of San Giulio accessible only by boat, a place immersed in the quiet lake where is the basilica with the remains of San Giulio as well as numerous and impressive religious buildings . The whole basin of the lake is a noteworthy attraction of the landscape and ofre in addition to the baths all the water sports: swimming, water skiing, rowing, etc.
