We are now back in Blighty but already missing the wonderful view of Lake Orta from our beautiful apartment.  Thank you so much for being such a friendly, attentive and informative host.  We had a truly memorable trip and the views at times quite simply brought tears to my eyes (I'm getting more sentimental with age!).  We are already talking about our return trip - we feel there is still so much to see and explore.  Once again thanks again for providing us with the perfect location and apartment for me to celebrate my 50th with the family.

We had a fantastic holiday at Villa Gelsomina.  We have greatly appreciated the house and the service.  We definitely recommend Villa Gelsomina to family, friends and acquaintances.

Wir haben einen wunderschönen Urlaub im Haus 'Bluewater' verbracht.  Das Appartement liegt direkt am See und hat einen eigenen Seeanstoss.  Es ist sehr gut ausgestattet und sehr sauber.  Ein Motorboot, Kajak etc kann in ca 200 Meter Entfernung gemietet und temporär am eigenen Bootssteg befestigt werden.  Mit dem Auto oder Fahrrad erreicht man gut die umliegenden Orte für einen Einkauf oder Restaurantbesuch.  Es gibt einige schöne Ausflugsziele in der Umgebung.  Wir waren jedoch eher auf den nahen Motocrosspisten [bei Armeno] oder auf dem See anzutreffen.  Das Wasser im See ist kristallklar und warm.

Zusammengefasst haben wir hier einen nahezu perfekten Urlaub verbracht und kommen gerne wieder.  Der Kontakt mit dem Vermieter war perfekt.  Einziges kleines Manko: Wir waren während einer Hitzewoche hier, die Nächte waren sehr warm, da das Haus keine Klimaanlage hat.  Dafür hat uns der wunderbare See untertags immer eine willkommene Abkühlung beschert.

We spent a wonderful holiday in 'Bluewater'.  The apartment is located directly on the lake and has its own lake front.  It is very well equipped and very clean.  A motorboat, kayak, etc. can be rented about 200 meters away and moored to your own boat dock.  By car or bike you can easily reach the surrounding places for shopping or restaurants.  There are some nice destinations in the area.  However, we could usually be found either on the nearby motocross circuit [at Armeno] or on the lake itself.  The water in the lake is crystal clear and warm.

In summary, we spent an almost perfect holiday here and will gladly come back.  The contact with the landlord was perfect.  The only small drawback: we were there during a heatwave, and the nights were very warm, as the house has no air conditioning.  But having the wonderful lake during the day always brought us a welcome cooling.

Fantastic view and profound service

This is the place to be at Lake Orta.  The service level from William is magnificient from start to the end.  The view is just fantastic.  Very calm and beautiful surroundings.  Close to many interesting sites - especially Orta San Giulio.  And don’t miss the rodelbahn [Alpyland Mottarone Bob] in Stresa.  Como and Milano are only one hour away.

Villa Gelsomina is lovely!  Superb views of Lake Orta; quiet, peaceful, tranquil... the list goes on!  We stayed in the Dolce Vita apartment which was essentially a home from home.  A little kitchen/dining/living area, bathroom and bedroom.  Parking is at the front of the property and there is enough room for all residents to park.  There is a pool at the back of the property which is the perfect place to cool off on a hot day.  The gardens are well kept and overall just a lovely place to be.  Check-in is super easy and William provides a location pack with details about the property, restaurants, supermarkets etc. nearby which is really helpful.  Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Ein Ort der Erholung und Ruhe!  Wir erlebten in der Wohnung Ciao Italia! friedliche erholsame Ferientage.  Der Pool bietet herrliche Abkühlung und Erfrischung.  Der Garten ist wunderschön und gepflegt und die Aussicht ist herrlich.  Schon im Voraus wurden wir durch den Besitzer William bestens informiert, was uns die Umgebung alles bietet: Wandertips, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten,  Restaurants u.s.w. Auch während des Aufenthalts konnte man sich jederzeit, wenn nötig, Unterstützung und Rat bei ihm holen.  Wir fühlten uns sehr umsorgt.  Besten Dank dir William für diese erholsame Ferienzeit.

A place of rest and tranquility! We lived in the apartment Ciao Italia! peaceful relaxing holiday.  The pool offers great cooling and refreshment.  The garden is beautiful and well kept and the view is lovely.  Already in advance we were well informed by the owner William, what the environment offers everything: hiking tips, shopping, restaurants and more.  Even during the stay, you could always get support and advice from him, if necessary.  We felt very taken care of.  Thank you William for this relaxing holiday season.
