Feedback from Previous Occupants 2007

Last revised 17-11-2007

The following feedback was received from previous occupants of the apartments.  If you wish to take up any of the people below as references, contact details can be supplied.
We had the most wonderful stay at the apartment which is both very well-equipped but certainly also situated in one of the most beautiful spots on earth. And we would very much like to thank you for the proposed walks; we enjoyed the walk to the three little mountains on a very clear day (an unforgettable memory) - and would never have found the track without your help.

We had a lovely holiday in Pella, and found our first family holiday to Italy very enjoyable. Highlights were our drive to Locarno, and renting a yacht in Stresa for a day of sailing. The waterpark at Ondaland was a big hit with our two sons and we visited there twice as was a trip to Milan with a tour of the football stadium.

We would not hesitate in booking with you again and compliment you in your comprehensive information pack, which was extremely useful.

We had a lovely stay at Lake Orta and your villa and got home safe and sound. We would love to come back in the future and look forward to doing business with you again, take care.

Of all the many places we visited during our month in Italy...your Panorama was our favorite and we're already looking forward to returning in 2009. We pondered whether you were an architect given the wonderful design and the thoughtful furnishings. The apartment was in top notch shape when we arrived and we found Albert to be most helpful. Thank you for your attention to detail.

I've been meaning to email you and let you know what a wonderful time we had in Lake Orta. It is the most charming place and the accommodation was just perfect for us.

We will be back again!

"Just a brief e mail to thank you for the excellent accomodation that we enjoyed during our stay at the Villa Gelsomina.

Thank you also for the information you provided - we particularly enjoyed the walk to the three little mountains where the views were fantastic."

"Would just like to reiterate how much we enjoyed being in your villa near the lake."

I just wanted to pass on our comments on Casa Glicine.  We thought it was a perfect little apartment, really charming, clean, well kept, and with such an amazing view.  There was nothing we thought it was missing except perhaps a sharper knife for preparing food, and a bread knife (but these are supposed to be suggestions, not complaints!) - we loved the place.  We found Edo at the village shop most helpful and friendly, and we tried out a few of the suggested walks (although did manage to get a bit lost on one occasion).

We travelled there by train which we found convenient, and the beauty of the lake was staggering.

We would definitely consider returning soon.

Many thanks for an enjoyable and relaxing holiday.

We had an amazing week in La Darsena. The place was beautiful, better than we could even have imagined.  Your suggestions on restaurants, walks and sight seeing were priceless.  We did walk 2 on the list, following your detailed instructions without any issue (amazing considering our navigational skills).  We managed to eat and drink in most of the local restaurants you suggested, particularly loved the small pizzeria in domesdana(??) and Ristorante Olina (the service was fantastic).  We took the boat out and after 15 minutes of rather embarrasing attempts managed to get used to rowing.  All in all a brilliant week, we've already recommended it to many of our jealous friends (the pictures say it all).

Many thanks again for helping us have an amazing time. Expect future enquires from friends.

I thought I would send you this email as a quick note thanking you for a wonderful holiday.  We stayed at Villa Gelsomina, appartment D.  We was delighted with all aspects; appartment, site of appartment and surrounding area. We will certainly be returning.

Just wanted to drop you a line now that we’ve returned home, to say thank you for such a wonderful holiday location. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and were enchanted by Orta and all that it had to offer. The villa was amazing and a real credit to you; we’ve already been singing its virtues to friends and family.

Thanks also for all the invaluable info that helped us to get the most out of the area and thanks too for refunding the deposit so quickly.

We had a wonderful time at Casa Bartula and Lake Orta, and everything was arranged just perfectly. It was also very nice to meet you personally at the Casa. If we ever choose to go to Lake Orta again we will certainly come to you for a holiday home. We will also recommend this destination and your organisation to anyone.

We had a wonderful time at Casa Bella and we loved Marco and Daniela and Giulia and Edo. Thank you for the refund. Also thanks so much for all your walks. We especially loved Le Tre Montagnette. Magnificent views and a beautiful town too. Thank you for the thoroughness of detail.

Thanks for the use of Casa Glicine, it was a perfect base to tour the area.  We had a wonderful time, such stunning views and and a charming village to stay in.  Even the weather was great.

One comment, in the description of Casa Glicine a mention could be made regarding the suitability for people with difficulty climbing steps/stairs, not a problem for us but may be for some.

Thanks again, look forward to returning again in the future.

Just a short note to say how very much we enjoyed our stay in Gelsomina and Orta. It is a magical place and we would very much like to return, perhaps even next year. Thank you for your help and support and I must say everyone around was very friendly. I will have a look at the website soon and consider our options for next summer.

Kind regards,

I just wanted to say that we had a great holiday in Orta!  We liked the appartment very much, it´s altogether a beautiful place. Mr. and Mrs. Beggi were very friendly and helped us with all our questions.  We will certainly recommend the appartment to friends.

We had a really relaxing holiday at Pella.  Our first visit to Italy and I don't think it will be our last.  The accommodation at Casa Fiori was beautiful and we enjoyed the views from the apartment.

I just received your information pack...

I take my hat off you you!  In all the years we have been renting holiday accommodation in Europe or USA, I have never received such a comprehensive and informative pack of information – particularly the walks, which we are certain to complete.  I am considering to buy an apartment in Italy / Austria – and if I do I will use your information as a template on how it should be done.

If the accommodation matches the quality of the information, we should have a very nice holiday.
