Villa Crespi in Orta San Giulio, Italy

In the heart of Italy's Piedmont region, surrounded by rolling parklands adjacent to Lake Orta, Villa Crespi is like a fairytale waiting to happen. It's ornate architecture and meticulously preserved grandeur welcome guests with an authentic European panache, carried through in the villa's 14 suites and rooms - each with its own distinctive historic style. Unlike any hotel you have visited before, Villa Crespi is a truly unique destination, built originally as a home in 1879, and heralded for decades by royalty and world business leaders. Despite its overwhelming magnificence, you will find yourself in complete comfort here, as the accommodations all feature modern amenities such as marble bathrooms, private bars, satellite television, and balconies overlooking the lake or surrounding landscape. Start your stay with an ayurvedic massage, facial cleansing treatment, or chocolate therapy at the villa's well-practiced spa facilities, or relax on a sun bed in the scenic outdoor garden area. At Villa Crespi, life is like a dream.

With Italy being known for its incredible cuisine, it is only fitting that Villa Crespi bring you a Michelin-starred restaurant. Chef Tonino Cannavacciulo crafts innovative Mediterranean cuisine, drawing from regional flavors and incorporating the freshest, finest ingredients into every dish. Both la carte and tasting menu offerings are available, not to mention a broad selection of fine wines from the property's own cellars. Take things further with a hands-on cooking lesson, where two hours in the kitchen are spent learning to create impressive dishes inspired by Chef Cannavacciulo himself. You will take home not only recipes, but a one-of-a-kind experience. When it comes to discovering the surrounding area, you can choose to rent Villa Crespi's Maserati for a trip through the countryside, or venture on your own with the assistance of the villa's expert concierge. The medieval village of Orta and the Island of San Giulio are nearby destinations you should not miss, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Sacro Monte is a mere half mile from the villa. From the enchanting lands around it, to every nook and corner within, Villa Crespi is a fantastic time and place.

beautiful setting and perfectly maintained old style villa. however the service level is below what one expects for the price you pay! i stayed in suite 222 where the tv did not work even after each day complaining and being promised that it will work next day.... brakefast is a real service desaster! very very slow and portions are minuscule! if you are hungry, order double portions...(also on my first morning the scrambled eggs arrived lukewarm...) toast never arrived nor did the honey which i asked for... there is a beautiful outside terasse with nice seating arrangements. however again "no service". i arrived 1915 and was sitting there for over half an hour without anybody bothering to ask whether i would like a drink....(three other tables where similarly irked by the complete absence of anybody bothering....) all in all not worth the money despite the beautiful setting...

I took a reservation on March 2017. Place is wonderful, great staff, we had food tasting and added wine tasting and cheese tasting, at the end we ate seven plates of food and drunk seven glasses of wine... ate a lot... too much!! But it was all so goooood! Add wine tasting, it’s awesome! Price: 250 euro/person. Chef Canavacciuolo usually is there and meets clients. Best lunch in my life

Only stayed one night - each room is different in this Moorish inspired hotel. Mine was lovely. I always appreciate an in-room coffee maker and a complimentary bottle of water upon arrival - which this hotel delivered. While I wasn't a fan of the dinner, expect most would enjoy more than I did. I did enjoy the breakfast selection.

Traveling with friends from U.S. Arrived at Villa Crespi via Zurich. Greeted warmly by professional staff. Seated in lovely library/sitting room and served Prosecco while our bags were brought to our rooms. Hotel and rooms were beautiful, comfortable, and very clean. Our room had a footed tub with a hand-held shower. We had requested a walk-in shower. Hotel offered complimentary use of the rainfall showers in the spa located nearby on the same floor as our room and was convenient and comfortable. Reception services were exemplary. They arranged for a driver to/from local restaurants allowing an extra glass of wine without worry. Beautiful breakfast room and great breakfast. One morning breakfast staff was a little off. Overall we were treated very well and would return without hesitation. Wonderful hotel to feel pampered and enjoy beautiful Lake Orta.
