We stayed at Casa Verdi for a week and had a super time. The apartment is clean and very comfortable, having everything we needed. There was a nice view from the lounge window and the village is delightful. The small supermarket at the end of the road had everything we needed and the staff were extremely patient and helpful. We had no problems parking. The village of Dumenza was quiet and very peaceful. We loved Luino which is about a 15 minute drive and it is well stocked with restaurants, cafes, ice-cream parlours and two 24 hour supermarkets. It is delightful to walk along the promenade at the side of the Lake in the early evening. Lake Maggiore is a wonderful holiday destination.
Adriana was very helpful (housekeeper) when we arrived. The apartment was very clean and although small, very well equipped.
The location is quiet and if the weather is nice and sunny (though not while we were there), there is a good sized veranda to sip wine. The Veranda gets sun only in the late afternoon.
2 mins walk to a supermarket which was also quite well stocked with essentials so fantastic for that just arrived shop. The route down the mountain to Luino was like doing the Monte Carlo Ralley one way but our sat nav also took us on a more sedate route with less bends and turns. There is a Carrefour in Luino for the major shop (only 10 mins away from the apartment). We tried to visit the Chocolate factory in Caslano (CH) but were told only open May to September. We then visited the small 'zoo' nearby which was quite a disappointment. High admission fee for an extremely small zoo with only monkeys, ducks, turtles, birds, guinnea pigs and one lion and his lioness. It took us all of 30 mins to do the rounds, feed the animals and then leave.
Unfortunately, the majority of our stay was wet and dull but I would imagine on a nice sunny day, walking along the front of Lago Maggiore would be lovely.
9 out of 10 for the accommodation though (apart from the upstairs neighbour who liked to leave at 7am and slam the heavy front door as hard as possible it would seem, making getting a holiday lie in impossible!!).
