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.

Die Lage auf einem Hügel oberhalb von Ispra ist idyllisch. Schöner Garten mit Blick auf den Lago Maggiore (durch die Bäume). Sehr freundliche Nachbarn, welche einen kleinen landwirtschaftlichen Betrieb führen mit Gänsen, Hühnern, großem Gemüsegarten und 2 Hunde (welche mit den Nachbarshunden kommunizieren). Tierfreunde werden sich auch an den Tierhaare im Haus kaum stören, welche naturgemäß schwierig zu entfernen sind. Das Haus besteht aus 2 Schlafzimmern, einem Wohnzimmer, einer Terrasse mit tollem Blick und Küche mit großem Esstisch, Holzofen und Induktionsherd, ohne Abwaschmaschine, Kühlschrank mit Gefrierfach. Bequeme Betten (welche bereits bezogen waren ☺). WLAN mit gutem Empfang. Zufahrt über eine schmale, steile, teils unbefestigte Strasse. Auch mit VW-Bus machbar (wir klappten dann aber die Seitenspiegel ein). Herzlichen Dank an Enrica
