What a fantastic discovery....outstanding location and views that take your breath away. Our well appointed 2 bed apartment was spotlessly clean as was the whole complex. The restaurant ( guests only) is simply outstanding local cuisine ... incredibly the very reasonably priced menu, with plenty...More

We were back at La Darbia last week for the fourth time since 2015. I don’t go back to many places twice (at least not for a holiday), but La Darbia is special. It is still as good as it was the first time, and...More

Stunned by the views of lago d'orta. The appartment, the pool, the food, the hospitality is of high quality; can't fault it. We visited with two kids (4-6) and though it is not primarily focused on kids there is plenty to keep them entertained. The...More

We recently spent a week in La Darbia and we loved it. The grounds - full of vines, lavender and roses - are immaculately maintained. Views over Lake Orta are stunning. It's a great spot for visiting Orta San Giulio. The pool is clean and...More

This nice little appartment-hotel is the perfect place to discover the nice lake of Orta and the nearby Piedmonte. The appartments have a good equipped kitchenette with everything you need to prepare breakfast and a little meal. It is possible to order things for breakfast...More

LA DARBIA, originally a small rural settlement where the principal occupation was agriculture, is located on the hillside that climbs upwards from the town of Orta following the natural slope of the mountain ...More towering over it. A recent intervention led to the hamlet's revival and its destination as a tourist resort; the characteristic symbol is the little stone tower that gave the entire complex its name. The buildings that comprise LA DARBIA are all different from each other in shape and furnishings and are separated by yards and pedestrian lanes. Surrounded by foliage, the ground floor apartments have private gardens and a portico, while those on the first floor come with terraces. All the apartments enjoy sunny positions with a wonderful view of Lake Orta, the Island of San Giulio and Monte Rosa. The private gardens are towards the front of the park facing Lake Orta, as is the swimming-pool with the sunbathing area and the Nebbiolo vineyard, cultivated on the pre-existent terraced land, which dates back to the XVIII century. The parking spaces are to be found at the back along the driveway in the vicinity of the apartments. In the interior of the property there is a play area with suitable equipment for the use and enjoyment of our younger guests. A large wooded area, with an abundance of native species such as century-old chestnut, hornbeam and maple trees, surrounds the property. There is also a spring on the grounds belonging to the La DARBIA complex at just a short distance from the living quarters. It may be reached following a trail and the pure crystal water that flows from it is used on the property. Situated in an isolated area perfect for pure relaxation, LA DARBIA is also a strategic starting point to discover the many riches the surrounding territory has to offer: the town of Orta, one of the most beautiful in Italy, is within easy walking distance and from here one may discover the splendid Island of San Giulio and Sacro Monte, a Unesco heritage site. For mountain lovers, Mottarone with its breathtaking views, is nearby and so is the renowned tourist destination Lake Maggiore and its islands. Less
