Fantastic family run hotel with free parking/wifi and excellent breakfast on their terrace. Our room had a balcony with a spectacular view of Isola San Giulio. This hotel is an easy and pleasant walk into the centro of Orta San Guilio (it is NOT remote).

Hikers Dream
My husband and I came early for a Walking Adventures trip and they were very accommodating. We did not have to switch rooms after our personally paid one night. They are within walking distance to town and have a pool. The view is wonderful! Beautiful area. Lots of hiking opportunities right at your doorstep.

Lovely stay
Anna and her family were very gracious hosts. We had a great time even though the temperature in town ranged from 90 to 100 and the bugs in the air were terrible due to the heat. We had air conditioning in our room which was perfect.
