I almost don't want to recommend this place for fear it will become too popular. The villa offers fantastic views and each one seems to offer a level of privacy with an outside space for each apartment. You can happily stay there without really realising anyone else is there. The apartment has everything you might reasonably need while still feeling...

Stayed at Giuseppe for a week September 2015 and wished we has stayed longer. We booked directly by email. Living room is as beautiful as the photos and also very comfortable. A very fine terrace with great views over Lago D'Orta where we spent a lot of time. Take binoculars. We mainly self-catered. Kitchen is good and helpfully had some...

We stayed at Villa L'Antica Colonia in Casa Clementina. This is a small one bedroom apartment towards to the back of the Villa. Whilst it does not have the same views as the larger apartments to the front. We loved this place and we even had water glimpses pass the beautiful courtyard and fountain, when sitting at the dining table....

There last week in apartment Guiseppe: main room is huge with marble floor (take slippers!) and the terrace is incredible. You can be in sun or shade virtually all day and the views over the lake are unbeatable. Equipment and furnishings are excellent, and there is an honesty cellar with wine/beer/water which you pay for on leaving. We were lucky...

...because then it might get too busy. I can only echo all the positive things the other revuews are saying. The place is amazing and definitely the best view of Lake Orta imaginable. This is our 4th visit to Orta and this view from Casa Ella in Antica Colonia still takes my breath away. Of course the location is both...

It's hard to know where to start whne it comes to describing this location. Lake Orta is one of Italy's best-kept secrets and the views over the lake from Villa L'Antica Colonia are simply spectacular - day & night! We stayed in Apartment Elda and were looked after by Elda herself. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt impeccably...

We stayed in Apartment Elda from 24 -31 May. Although the weather was not great ( mostly sunny but pretty cold ) we very much enjoyed the fabulous views from the apartment and felt that all our needs had been met in terms of the facilities offered. The apartment is very comfortable in both the sitting room and bedroom areas...

We stayed at Villa Antica Colonia in May 2013 in the Elda suite. It is very modern, perfectly clean and has everything you could want - including a well equipped kitchen, comfy bed and a washing machine. Elda had also organised a cot and a highchair for our 7 month old baby which was very helpful. And the view was...

If you ever have a chance to travel to Lake Orta, give yourself a treat and stay at Villa Antica Colonia. We stayed for three wonderful nights in Elda and enjoyed the views and warmth of this part of Italy. The family owners are delightful, the inn so inviting, you may never want to leave. We also ate around the...

My husband and I spent a blissful week at the Antica Colonia having booked it through the excellent Inntravel. What a delight it was! A villa perched on the hilltops overlooking the serene Lake Orta, split into apartments each named after a member of the family who own it. We stayed in Casa Guiseppe, which has its own private balcony...
