November 2010.  We are now offering a later checkout (latest 12 noon) for Villa Giovanetti, Giove and Venere.  Earliest check-in is pushed back 1 hour for these three apartments, to 5pm.  We are no longer renting Azalea, owing to the withdrawal of the property by the owner.

September 2010.  We have installed a wireless internet service at Villa Gelsomina.  We've updated directions to take account of the new Borgomanero bypass, and we've updated all location packs with more details of suggested trips to Lake Maggiore and elsewhere, with several links to new external web sites.

August 2010.  We've separated out and expanded the page on food in the area.  We've added George Foreman grills to apartments D and E, so all apartments in Villa Gelsomina now have these convenient grills.  We have stopped renting the apartments in Casa sul Lago, as we do not feel that we can offer them at a price that represents good value for money.  We've included new pictures of the master bedroom of Casa Bartula, following the recent refurbishment with new oak flooring and new wardrobe and other furniture.   

May 2010.  We've renewed the photos of Dolce Vita, and added more pictures to the staff page.   

May 2010.  The Rabarama sculptures have arrived in Orta San Giulio for you to enjoy, have a look at them on this web site!

May 2010.  We are delighted to offer, for stays from 29th May 2010, two stunning new two-bedroom apartments in the main square of Orta San Giulio, with superb views of the island.  Giove is on the second floor, Venere is on the third floor.  Contemporary furnishings, exposed ceilings and new oak flooring.

Giove and Venere, two stunning new apartments in Piazza Motta, with views over the piazza, of Lake Orta, and of the island.   Giove and Venere, two stunning new apartments in Piazza Motta, with views over the piazza, of Lake Orta, and of the island.

April 2010.  As Weddings at Lake Orta, we organised Jackie and Ken's wedding in Orta San Giulio.

March 2010.  We're putting small George Foreman grills in all the apartments in Villa Gelsomina.  Apartments A and C have baby grills, Apartment B has a 'Grill & Melt'.  These two-sided electric grills provide a fast, convenient and fat-free way of cooking meat and fish, and can of course be used for cooking just about anything else. 

February 2010.  We enhanced the availability pages to show partial availability to the day, with a simple (?!) scheme based on days of the week, so for example m.f means booked from Monday to Friday.  If you have any comments on how well you think this works OK, please feed back to William.  We've also changed some of the thumbnails on the overview pages.

February 2010.  We refreshed the pages on local places of interest and day trips with new pictures, and added more pictures of Pella and Omegna.  And we've created separate news pages by year, as the single page had got rather long.  We have also added a new row in the Overview tables suggesting whether it is recommended to have a car.

January 2010.  We've added some javascript so you can play the pictures in the gallery as a slideshow, and we've added some pictures at Christmas at Orta San Giulio to the winter gallery, and we've added a page on Omegna.  We've also increased the use of styles, making links appear more consistently underlined in green, but only when you hover over them.

January 2010.  For all those clients returning to Villa Gelsomina and wanting some different walks, we've put together a set of 5 additional walks, so there are now 10 in total tailored for Villa Gelsomina.
