Make a holiday rental home or villa in Luino, Italy your home away from home

Luino is a small town near the Swiss border, which sits on the eastern shore of Lake Maggiore and is regarded as one of the most important towns in the region. Luino is typical example of a town in the area, being a once-industrial town that has remained well-preserved and steeped in history, and as a result has become popular with tourists throughout the year. A good number of historical sites, points of interest and local events make Luino one of the top choices for those seeking a traditional Lake Maggiore holiday.

Things to do in Luino, Italy

The historic centre of the town has a bustling feel to it, is a great place for exploring by foot, stopping of for the occasional coffee or snack as you desire. The centre is also where you will find a series of craft shops, cafes and small restaurants, with a number of narrow, winding roads leading up hill and away from the centre, which will take you to some of the finest baroque and renaissance palaces and churches in Luino, such as the 15th century Church of Madonna del Carmine.

When it comes to activities, a trip along to the weekly market is a must for any visitor. Regarded as one of the biggest of its type in Europe, the Wednesday morning event is extremely popular and even draws visitors from over the border in Switzerland. Some of the best views of the lake can be enjoyed along the port area, particularly from small promenade. Water sports can also be enjoyed on the lake, and walking and cycling are good options in the surrounding area.

                                                          We stayed for a week from 6-13 September 16. 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 apartment was adequate but a little tired.

                                                          The apartment in Dumenza was adequate but a little tired, it would have benefited from a lick of paint and a little more attention to detail, eg the picture hanging was atrocious, there were no tea towels, dish cloths, hair dryer, iron or ironing board, although it does state in the advertisement that tea towels and dish cloth was not included I do feel that the above mentioned equipment are essential in any holiday let, we did purchase an ironing board which we left in the apartment for the new guests, unfortunately for them we took are iron home, we also purchased wine glasses as there were only two in the apartment, that said the housekeeper was very welcoming and friendly, and Dumenza itself is a lovely little village. 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.
