À propos de ce logement

Villa Monziani, an exclusive 17th C lakefront house, one of the oldest on the island in the middle of Lake Orta, recently completely modernised, offers a peaceful and romantic stay in beautiful and historic surroundings. Our private boat (8HP outboard - no license required) guarantees full flexibility and our mainland locked garage are included. We also have a residents open parking place for eventual second car.

Le logement

The house dates from 1637 and although recently modernised it maintains its traditional and antique character, and being at the moment the only house rented on the island it affords a unique opportunity for a special vacation, an event or a wedding reception (we have special access to the largest private garden on the island for an external wedding ball).

Accès des voyageurs

Boat house, garden, kitchen, ground floor lounge and toilet, 1st master bedroom & 1st floor lounge. Private Boat and garage on mainland. Other bedrooms are opened according to number of guests.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

We greet our guests in the main square in Orta, show them the garage and then go to the island via private boat or public transport, show them the ropes and answer all questions. It is essential that arrivals take place before 6pm in case of really bad weather as we would have to use a taxiboat to access the island. This has never happened yet but nature must not be taken lightly. On departure I'll come to the island to help you over or meet in Orta to retrieve house & garage keys. A drop off point can be arranged otherwise if need be.

Autres remarques

The prices are for two bedrooms, including everything specified in Guest Access. If more rooms are required it is indicated in the pricing. A small separate apartment on the top floor belongs to my cousins. They are completely independent. They use the back entrance and the central staircase to get to their flat. They are very nice people and if present do not intrude. The back entrance leads to the circular walkway around the island.

The lake has the second cleanest lake water in Europe and I've witnessed its complete recovery from the industrial pollution of the 70s, when it was considered practically dead, to the thriving ecosystem of today, full of aquatic and bird life. I have installed a septic tank so please help it function properly by not throwing solid-waste down the toilet and use bins provided. The soap, washing powder, conditioner etc. provided is all ecological, please make sure yours are too. I beg you please don't throw your cigarette butts into the lake.

Andrew is een geweldige gastheer! Alles perfect geregeld, van het parkeren in de garage tot de overtocht met alle spullen op de boot. Het huis zelf is uniek, op een prachtige plek. Zwemmen in het meer, een koffietje aan de overkant op het plein, lezen in de tuin: het was een bijzondere ervaring in Andrew's mooie huis. Absolute aanrader.

Truly a great welcome, Andrew contacted me a couple of times beforehand to check everything was OK and was there on time on the day to show us round and help us across to the villa. He has a private garage for the car. The house is absolutely marvelous, if anything better than the pictures and the island was as mysterious and romantic as we hoped. The little motor boat made getting round the lake a joy. Andrew had left us plenty of essential supplies and a plate of ham and cheese so we were well catered for when we first arrived.

Amazing experience! We absolutely loved this ancient house with the most beautiful views from every window, the lovely garden, the tasteful interior and the well equipped kitchen. Andrew is such a nice host. We were welcomed with delicious antipasti and felt at home from the first moment on. The small boat is easy to use and provides a special thrill. It feels so different to come home by boat after buying food or having dinner in one of the really good restaurants in Orta San Giulio. Our 16 years old son absolutely loved to be the skipper. Summary: Perfect stay, perfect host.

What an awesome find. In person this is as cool as it looks online. Andrew is a delightful host, with Colin Firth-type British wit and an italiano attitude. He shares the history of the area and his family (villa has been in his family for generations). Everyone in the little town of Orta San Guilo knows Andrew so using his name is quite helpful. It is an experience arriving and takes some coordination. Pay attention to the instructions he gives. Motoring back and forth to the villa was a kick. We elected one of our party to be our boatman. The villa is truly a unique experience. You are definitely staying in someone's home. Lots of stairs - part of the experience. Views from every window were spectacular and the garden is delightful. You are practically the only ones on the island. So, don't depend on the single "restaurant" being open. Service everywhere was friendly and helpful (except the place on the isola). Highly recommend. But make it a longer stay than we did with only a couple nights. The kind of place you could spend 3-4 weeks in if you wanted a quiet life to write and be italian. Grazie mille, Andrew. Tutto bene! The Fogarty/Marshall Family.
