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.
Kleines gemütliches Apartment im 3. Stock. Schöne Aussicht, nicht weit von Luino ca. 10 Min. mit dem Auto entfernt. Hübsches Schlafzimmer mit gutem Bett. Die Küche ist groß genug und alles vorhanden was man braucht. Auf jeden Fall genug Geschirr. Parkplatz findet man auch in der Nähe ca. 50m entfernt. Für den Preis einfach super. Die Dusche ist schwierig zu benutzen, da die Temperatur schwer einzustellen ist, dann besser ein Bad nehmen. Die Wohnung war sauber und die Schlüsselübergabe hat prima funktioniert. TOP!!
Flat was perfect. Had a great time in Italy. Good price. Owner efficient and informative. Will stay again.
We thought that this was perfectly located. It was very easy for us to make walks around the lovely countryside. Anyone staying would enjoy it for a few minutes leisurely walk or longer hikes around the area. It was ideal for the relaxing holiday that we were looking for and we enjoyed all the views in this picturesque
location. We found the kitchen very good for our holiday with a full set of utensils. Everything supplied was to our liking. Overall we had a great stay and we will carry home pleasing memories of our holiday for a long time.
We enjoyed the space and cleanliness of the apartment. We spend some time relaxing and other days sightseeing. We enjoyed plenty of lovely views around the village. We would always look forward to returning in the future. The property was as good if not better than we had seen on the website. We enjoyed the lake, the mountians and everything the areas had to offer.
We tried the two local restaurants which we thought we good and we could
then take a gentle stroll back to the flat in the evening. Even though
Dumenza is very close to Lake Maggiore it maybe useful to know that Lake
Come is only just over an hour's drive away. The drive down to the lake
from Dumenza has many breathtaking views.
