December 2016  We've now added a rocking chair to the living room of Dolce Vita, new folding easy chairs for the smaller balconies to soak up the morning sun, and a new carpet in the bedroom.

October 2016  We've fitted FireAngel combined Smoke and Carbon Monoxide alarms (model SCO5Q) in Giove and Venere.

August 2016  We've fitted a FireAngel combined Smoke and Carbon Monoxide alarm (model SCO5Q) in Casa Miralago.

August 2016  We've added the timetable for the train route from Malpensa to Orta-Miasino (Via Busto Arsizio Nord and Novara) to the Getting There page.

July 2016  We've fitted FireAngel combined Smoke and Carbon Monoxide alarms (model SCO5Q) to the five apartments in Villa Gelsomina.

July 2016  We've added the newly released DVD of Giuseppe Tornatore's La Corrispondenza to the collections in Panorama and Dolce Vita.  Shot partly on the island of the Isola San Giulio and Lago Maggiore (filming took place over Easter 2015), the film stars Olga Kurylenko (from Quantum of Solace) and Jeremy Irons, with music by the one and only Ennio Morricone who wrote the wonderful music for Cinema Paradiso and The Mission (Gabriel's Oboe).  In the film, the island is given the name Borgo Ventoso.  It's a curious story touching on modern telecoms, astrophysics, and film shooting, set in traditional locations (the other locations are Edinburgh and York).  Some remark that the film has a curious twist, but not everyone spots it.  Mandatory viewing for italophile film enthusiasts, the DVD is selectable in Italian or English with subtitles available in either.  Book one of these apartments now to see this film!

June 2016  Orta Beach Club has been taken over by new management, it's now Luci sul Lago.  Enthusiastic staff, same superb setting, pizzas just as good!  Full details in your location pack.
