The chilled atmosphere of Lago di Orta compared to the bigger lakes was a real joy, and well worth the visit.
Villa Crespi was a very special location. Recommend you come for the food more than the hotel itself, while stunning the rooms are a little dated (esp. the bathrooms). Celebrated Sicilian chef Cannavacciuolo didn't disappoint. Warning go very hungry as the 10 course tasting menu was excessive - still a treat once in a while.
All staff were exceptional.
Recommended for a night or two provided your pockets are deep enough.
