With so many online feedback forums, we don't get so many direct feedback messages any more.  Here are testimonials received from previous occupants.  To take up any of these as references, please ask for contact details.
Our apartment on Lake Konstanz is well equipped but not to the standard set at Villa Gelsomina.  You have set a new benchmark to be referred to by us on all future holidays as the "William standard".  Thanks again.

I stayed at Villa Gelsomina with a group of friends for a week in May, and had the perfect getaway holiday.  The apartment was immaculate and exactly as described, with all of the amenities we needed for our stay included.  A large supermarket was a short drive away, which meant we could easily buy anything we needed.  Our favourite part was the large swimming pool, with incredible views of the lake!  William also gave us some fantastic recommendations for where to eat, which meant every meal we had was delicious and great value.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Villa Gelsomina to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway!

Beautiful and peaceful   Rating - 5 stars

We loved spending time at the apartment.  Relaxing on the balcony, with ever changing views of Lake Orta, Isola San Giulio and the snow capped Monte Rosa range was a highlight.  And the well kept gardens and pool were made even more enjoyable by those views.  The apartment was clean, comfortable, well maintained and provided everything we needed.

William's helpful information pack included suggestions for trips out, eating, local walks etc.  William was very helpful and efficient in all his dealings with us.

It is a beautiful area with plenty to do.  And the peace and beauty of the Lake Orta location made it perfect to return to after time spent on the nearby, slightly busier, Lake Maggiore.

We would not hesitate to recommend the apartment to friends and relatives.

Villa Gelsomina is beautiful, Lake Orta is glorious, and we shall be back, without a doubt!

We loved the apartment; it is comfortable, well equipped, and the view across to Isola San Giulio and to the mountains beyond is, indeed, perfection!  For Ian, the icing on the cake came on our last morning when we could actually glimpse Monte Rosa for the first time.  Such a treat!

We were truly impressed with the organization which makes a stay at Villa Gelsomina such a pleasure.  You have cracked it, William, that's for sure!

From the moment you open the shutters and take in the view, you can't help but's a fabulous.

We stayed in apartment Panorama, it's extremely well equiped, the kitchen has plenty of cooking utensils (I like to buy local food and cook supper on some evenings).  It was very clean and had everything we needed.  The balcony is big and has plenty of room for the table and chairs, plus both sun beds.

The pool is a really good size, especially if you like to actually do lengths (my husband and I like to get up early and swim every morning).  The Villa is situated along a very quiet road, off the main road through Lortallo.  From the Villa we did lots of lovely walks, most were easy and well signed.  We have stayed in lots of villas & apartments over the years and this has to be one of our favourites and it's highly likely that we will return soon.  Lake Orta is very quiet, not as 'touristy' as some of the other Italian Lakes.  It's easy to get around, quite literally we drove around the Lake in one day stopping at different spots, returning later in the week to our favourite places.

Wonderful find, can't wait to return.

After having a perfect time in your house we are happy back in Germany.

Thank you very much again for the opportunity to spend the time in this lovely place.  We have been at the Lago dŽOrta already times before and are still amazed about this wonderful unspoiled place.

Thank you for your kind assistance and hopefully we spend more happy days in your really wonderful location.

If only we could keep this a secret.....

We spent a week in this wonderful apartment.   We swam in the lake everyday, the water was warm and clear.  The apartment was well equipped, with ample space (and bathrooms) for our family including 3 teenagers.  We hired a boat for a day which was great fun and enabled us to see the rest of the lake.  Omegna is a lovely town, the market on a Thursday is a must to visit.

We would all go back to this apartment without hesitation.
