“Another Magical stay at Lake Orta”
Reviewed 23 January 2015 for a stay in September 2014

I have stayed at Barrow residence on Isola San Giulio for 16 years. I have taken family and friends at many different times of the year and we always feel like crying the day we leave.
It is a private residence with lovely garden with a pergola with grapes and roses and dining table.
There are 3 bedrooms 2 with bath ensuite and a dine in kitchen and lovely living room with fireplace for cool evenings. The rental includes a small motorboat to let you visit other villages along the lake and commute to the village (4 minutes) away. There is one restaurant on the island and a lovely convent with 80 Benedictine nuns in cloister. On Sundays they sing at the 11 o'clock Mass and it is magical. There are great shops and restaurants in the village and they are so friendly and helpful.

It's always a great pleasure to have you, the house has become your home too over the years and we treasure the useful objects you've left behind to help enhance the facilities. We have always made jam from the grapes and the figs from the garden, but now thanks to you we have a new specialty with which greet future guests, San Giulio chutney! We are increasing the species of spice plants that can be found in the garden; rosemary, sage, oregano, majorana, mint, basil and chives, to enrich the culinary experience as much as possible. We'll be planting a banana tree, not that we ever expect fruits, but to use the leaves in the future to cook fish on the new BBQ grill, obviously made in USA! ;)
