“We had a wonderful holiday in this beautiful region of Italy. Lake Orta is a little gem. So much to see in this area, we especially enjoyed exploring Lake Maggiore and visiting it's three islands. The food and wine were excellent wherever we went. Cristina and family looked after our home and car as if they were their own. Thank you very much. Kind regards Bob and Carol”
