“Everything you need in the middle of Orta San Giulio”
Reviewed 29 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We enjoyed a 5-day stay in this nicely renovated apartment. Everything you need is there and the location in the middle of the town is excellent. From the bedroom there is even a little view of the lake and Isola di Orta San Giulio.
A big thank you to the owners for the super introduction to the parking situation and the equipment and appliances, also for helping carrying our luggage. The tip to have dinner at nearby Pizzeria Pozzo was great. In fact we ate there three times, not only pizza and pasta.
We had no problem with the wireless internet connection and the television set. We appreciated the warm blanket as the room temperature was set to 17°C at night.
Overall the apartment can be highly recommended to people being fond of experiencing the spirit of an ancient Italian home, with the apartment having modern standard at the same time.

“Home away from home”
Reviewed 25 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We could not have wished for kinder hosts, or a more lovingly presented apartment than Cusius. Having visited Orta San Giulio previously, we were in no doubt as to the beauty of this little town, its island, the lake and surroundings. It is always a gamble, however, booking accommodation on the internet. We need not have worried, Apartment Cusius exceeded our expectations.

Andrea, the owner, met us above the town, guided us to an underground car park and kindly helped take our heavy luggage down to the apartment. Waiting for us there was his delightful Mum, Gianca. The spacious one bedroom apartment is ideally situated, right in the centre of the gorgeous little town, just steps from the piazza. It contains everything one could want and more.

Andrea explained they wanted to present the apartment the way they would like it themselves. Included was a welcoming bottle of bubbly chilling in the fridge, as well as milk, a bowl of apples and grapes, potato crisps, sweets, etc.  The apartment felt very homely, but at the same time has lots of character and a glimpse of the lake from the bedroom window.

Andrea and Gianca spent well over an hour showing us around the beautiful, spotless flat, with Andrea explaining how everything works and giving us recommendations for walks, sightseeing, restaurants etc.  

Throughout our stay, Andrea was the consummate professional, readily accessible and always responding promptly to our emails.

We were content to spend the week in and around Orta San Giulio, with the absolute highlights being the UNESCO World Heritage site of Sacro Monte and Madonna del Sasso perched high on a cliff. But for those wanting to explore further afield, Apartment Cusius would be the perfect base.

We knew immediately upon arrival we would want to extend our stay and our planned three nights soon became seven. Even then, we were reluctant to leave. Gracie mille, Andrea and Gianca, for a most memorable stay!

“Nice apartment, lovely owner, great location”
Reviewed 25 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We enjoyed a week at apartment Cusius in mid September. We received clear travel instructions from the owner,Andrea prior to arrival. As we were arriving by car Andrea met us to allow us into our reserved parking area before showing us to the apartment where we were greeted by his delightful Mother. The apartment had everything we needed for our stay including a bottle of Prosecco, a bowl of fruit and some fresh vegetables.!
We had mixed weather but enjoyed following some of the walks from a collection supplied at the apartment. There were manuals available for all appliances and some leaflets with details of local attractions. Orta San Giulio has lots of bars and restaurants to choose from and we also had several trips to visit nearby Lake Maggiore.

Andrea and his family really went out of their way to make us welcome and we loved staying in such an interesting apartment. The flat was really well-furnished, and the town was a delightful place to spend a week.

“Lovely central apartment”
Reviewed 22 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

we recently had the pleasure of staying in this well appointed apartment for 10 nights ,to attend a family wedding,The whole process from booking to travel advice ( we were using public transport) was made easier through Andreas's attention to detail and helpful advice.He even took the time to meet us at the local station and deliver us there at the end of the vacation.A true gent.On arriving at the apartment,we were warmly welcomed by Andreas's mother.They both gave thorough instruction on all aspects of housekeeping.The apartment was well presented and comfortable.We had a thoroughly enjoyable time and visited many beautiful places around Orta.We hope to return someday.
