First impression was how clean and fresh smelling the apartment was, many thanks to Adriana. During our stay we visited some of the recommended places, including Bellinzona and Maccagno. We ate at the restaurant in the village, which was good, but also walked towards Agna to find the restaurant Smeraldo. It is about 1km away and can be accessed on foot, with care. Lunch was delicious. A few basic Italian words are helpful as this is in the heart of rural Italy, which suited us perfectly. We hope to return again for another trip.

The information sent with the booking from the owners was very useful, with lots of tips on places to visit and things to do, we did them all and a little more. Overall we thought it was good value for money and had a wonderful holiday in the Italian Lakes and enjoyed are stay in Dumenza. With a little bit of TLC and the essential equipment this apartment could be a little gem.
