- Propery Type:
- village close by
- golf close by
This charming villa offers guests an opportunity to enjoy beauty and nature in a peaceful setting. Located on idyllic Lake Orta, this independent house with private dock and beautiful garden, is within walking distance of the small village of Crabbia. Many water sports are available in the area, including swimming, boating, water skiing, and scuba diving. There are horseback riding stables nearby, as well as two golf courses; or you can just sit back, take it easy, and enjoy the view.
Villa Corti is above and overlooking the lake, not on the lakeshore. A stepped path leads from the villa down to the lakeshore road (about 150 meters/164 yards).
The entrance to Villa Corti leads through a beautiful garden into a courtyard.
1 double bedroom with en suite bathroom (tub)
Storage/laundry room with washing machine and extra fridge
A lovely staircase leads to the second floor, surrounded on two sides by a balcony. This is the main living area of the villa.

Across the balcony is a beautiful, spacious patio (in effect, a summer living room) with a dining table for 10, and plenty of comfortable sofas and chairs.
Spacious master bedroom with fireplace and lake view; large en suite bathroom with tub and stall shower
A few steps up lead to a passage with a bed of 120 cm, a nursery with crib, and a large mansard with twin beds (beds can not be joined) that is more suitable for children than adults.
The ground floor and the second floor bedrooms have independent access from the outside and are connected as well by an interior staircase. There is no inside connection from these two bedrooms to the rest of the house; to reach the living room and kitchen from these two bedrooms, guests must pass through the balcony.
Outside, a long path leads to the private dock and bathing area.. At the bottom of the path, you must cross a road to reach the lake. Children must be watched and helped across the road. In front of the crossing is a little ferry launch and the gate to the dock. Please note that there are some steps here that could be difficult for those with walking difficulties. There are many possibilities to follow footpaths leading to the towns and villages along the lake, and to the forest and the mountains.
From October to May, there is a maximum of 6 guests permitted at Villa Corti.
