An absolutely fantastic place. Caterina and her husband and their managing son Ezio are among the best hosts we have ever met - and we travel extensively. First - Lake Orta is just phenomenal. It is clean and pure and gorgeous - as is the entire area. Totally relaxing.
Second, Giardinetto was clean, and comfortable, and the restaurant was excellent - in an area that was loaded with great cuisine, we ate at Giardinetto three times! and it was excellent every time. The staff at this hotel really are just superb - friendly, helpful, always smiling - always there when you need them and not there when you are relaxing.
Mostly, Giardinetto is one of those rare places that have that ability to make you feel like you are entirely welcome, and that it is their pleasure to have you there, and somehow you feel as though you are among your family...or they somehow make you feel part of theirs.
Finally - this place is entirely special...if you get the opportunity to visit here - don't pass it up. You will be VERY pleased that you went.
