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.

Villa Crespi is Located on a hillside a short walk away from the shores of Lake Orta, close to the medieval village of Orta San Giulio and Sacro Mote di Orta, Unesco World heritage. After the business in Milano, I took train from Milano to Orta-Miasino. I like traveling by train. Italian train is very punctual like Japanese, so I felt comfortable in the train with lunch. I enjoyed wonderful view in the suburbs of Italy for 1h40min. I took the red color train at the station to the hotel. The village looks like Utopia. The best destination to travel for me is Unesco World Heritage with Michelin restaurant and nice hotel. Villa Crespi should be perfect for me to enjoy everything. Resembling a Moorish palace, the building dates from 1879 when cotton merchant, Mr. Crespi, inspired by Baghdad’s architecture, built a private villa on the shores of his native Lake Orta. The villa’s extensive garden with lake views has a relaxation area with sunbeds. During summertime, we can enjoy massage there. Villa has Turkish sauna. I enjoyed Ayurveda massage. Reception is a small desk area in the entrance lobby with wonderful architecture. Staff are welcoming, and good hospitality. The owners Cinzia and Antonino Cannavacciuolo are often in the hotel to welcome guests personally. I met him. (lucky!). The warm, elegant rooms retain their original parquet flooring, and are embellished with rich fabrics and drapes. I enjoyed the beautiful Orta lake and mountains from the windows with his original Spumante " Cannavacciuolo". Very good Spumante!! I drank all with good music and wonderful view and delicious fruit.

This review is for the apartment associated to Villa Crespi and located along the road leading to the village. We tried to book a suite but the hotel was full and the management suggested a suite located outside the main building. I accepted and omg! The suite was actually an apartment in a nice palazzo just outside the gates of Orta San G. The suite has 2 bedrooms and an beautiful living. The lake view is amazing. We enjoyed the restaurant at the hotel, but also had wonderful meals in the village.

Two couples touring Italy stayed here for 3 nights and had a fantastic experience. Quite pricey but you get what you pay for. The service was fantastic and worthy of a place like this; no request too big or too small. The food in the Michelin 2 star restaurant on premises by owner/chef was off the hook great. The spa was a bit odd but I got one of the best massages I've ever had there and the entire Lake Orta area is charming. The only draw back was lack of a stand up shower in our room. We had a large jetted tub (which was nice) but with a hand held shower that we found somewhat inconvenient. A very memorable stay.
