Orat San Giulio is paradise - stunning location, delightful little town and silence, lots of it! the contrada dei Monti is recently converted as a hotel and is delightful, with tastefully done period rooms. One snag - it has no air con, and for those like me who need a some cool st night to sleep, this could be a...

We stayed in La Contrada dei Monti for the weekend as we were attending a wedding and it was everything we had imagined it would be! I'd read the reviews of others who had visited and we came well prepared, we parked in the multi storey (about 3 minutes walk away) and trundled down the narrow cobbled streets to the...

La Contrada dei Monti nestles in an alleyway in Orta San Giulio, a beautiful old town on the shore of Lake Orta. The accommodation is immaculate - well justifying the hotel's three star rating. My 100 Euros a night double room - number 101 - was very spacious with a good ensuite shower/toilet. A wooden beamed ceiling added character. There...

Visited Orta San Giulio for a couple of days for a family wedding. We stayed at the La Contrada dei Monti right in the heart of Orta San Giulio. What a wonderful gem of a hotel. Small but perfect for a relaxing break. The hotel and the rooms are beautifully decorated and the staff are so welcoming although they bearly...

This is a charming hotel in a good position. Rooms are nice with much thought given to detail. Soundproofing could be better between rooms. The staff do not have a clue how to look after their paying guests. Our welcome was icy, the atmosphere several degrees below and staff were so scared of us it was farcical! We speak Italian...

We spent a few days at the La Contrada dei Monti in May 2004. Lovely, warm inn. We had a junior suite on the third floor, not much of a view but large comfortable room. Watch out for the beamed ceiling--can be hazardous. I bumped my head a few times but accommodations more than made up for it. Great bathroom!...

It's been my pleasure to stay at this hotel twice. Lake Orta's magical mountain setting has long lacked a hotel like this -- one with traditional Italian style, handsome decor and a moderate price. New in 2001, this 17-room hotel is on a pedestrian-only lane just off the Renaissance square that is the heart of Orta San Giulio. To view...
