December 2007. We've put down new wood flooring upstairs in Casa Miralago, renewed the window and door handles with contemporary satin steel designs, and updated the wall fittings in the bathroom to satin steel.
November 2007. We've added a gallery of some favourite photos of Lake Orta.
October 2007. We've planted 200+ bulbs in the grounds of Villa Gelsomina. Book now for a burst of crocuses and daffodils in the Spring! New pavement edging is now in place in front of the villa, to be paved in the Spring.
July 2007. We've completed the redecoration of Casa Bella, with new oil pictures, new bedside tables in the twin room, and larger TV with video. The new barbecue of Villa Gelsomina is now in use, with cafe-style tables in the barbecue area (picture on left) with its own view of the lake .
June 2007. Three different wedding groups stayed in Villa Gelsomina in June and July. For Lesley and Andrew (picture on right), we organised their wedding on 2nd July, which was held in the Comune of Orta San Giulio, and the Hotel San Rocco.
April 2007. We've been busy planting in Villa Gelsomina, with Japanese Acers and more Azaleas around the villa. The lower terrace is now being made usable, and the bank below the chessboard has been planted with rhododendra, baby palms, and smaller flowers. We've added a calendar to the web site showing what the area has to offer in every month of the year.
February 2007. With several large trees having been cut down in the garden of the neighbouring villa, the view from Villa Gelsomina is now even better, with uninterrupted views from Paradiso of the whole Orta peninsular.
