Welcome to spring 2018! We recommended that you book a last minute holiday in Italy in Dumenza near Lake Maggiore at this time of year. This property, Casa Verdi, has stunning views and it is ideal for self catering holidays. Both our properties in Dumenza will give you a great summer, autumn, winter or spring holidays.
There are plenty of things to do all year round. This beautiful part of Italy almost guarantees a memorable holiday. Our self catering holiday homes are in the beautiful mountain village of Dumenza. It is surrounded by beautiful mountainous countryside so know that you will enjoy your holiday there whatever time of year you go. This is the ideal location to enjoy and explore lakes and mountains of northern Italy and Ticino in Switzerland. It is close to Luino by Lake Maggiore, in the Italian lakes and mountains in Northern Italy. Dumenza is only a mile from the Swiss border Lake Lugano is only just over the border in Switzerland. It is also close to Lake Lugano and Lake Como is not far away. Lake Garda is further east.
You will find all kinds of trees and shrubs around the village. You will hear a variety of bird sounds, depending on the time of year. If it is out of season and longer why not visit Dumenza and Lake Maggiore before the crowds come. You will enjoy a last minute break in the Italian Lakes and Mountains. Our guests are happy to tell us how they enjoy all the things there are to do and see there.
It is great for self catering walking holidays and cycling holidays as the views from the mountains around Dumenza and Lake Maggiore are superb.
Milan is 1 1/2 hours away for a city trip. There are many other things to for in the area.
Things to do: As you are so close to Lake Maggiore there are plenty of things to do including walking, mountain biking, boat trips, shopping in Lugano. In the winter you can ski in the Swiss ski resort of San Bernadino, only an hour away by car.
There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance from the accommodation in Dumenza. There are plenty of bars & restaurants in Luino, by the lake. It is about 10 minute by car. There is also a bus service to Luino.

A lovely appartment in a beautiful region.
Very cordial neighbors.
Future guests will be grateful to know that it is a lovely apartment in a beautiful region.
It is always pleasing when guests get on well with the neighbours.
Really lovely apartment, we stayed for 2 weeks with 2 children and our dog. Dumenza is pretty and very close to Luino (amazing market every Wednesday). Meccagno has a great beach and again, not far from Dumenza. Lots of information sent to us by the owners and we used it well - thank you!
The apartment hasn't got a washing machine, but there is a launderette in Maccagno, so no problem even if you are staying with messy children.
We had an amazing time, loved the area and will definitely return!

We are grateful that you made use of all the information we sent you.
We look forward to you staying as a guest in future.
Wonderful. Peaceful. Picturesque and very clean!
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.
Thank you saying that it was good value for money. We are grateful you found all the information sent very useful. Like you, other guests have said that said the housekeeper was very welcoming and friendly, and Dumenza is a lovely little village.
We are sorry and surprised that you were unhappy with some aspects of your stay. We do not supply an iron because of potential damage to the property and it would be a potential fire hazard in a rental property. Nobody else has ever requested this in 10 years of us owning the property so we would think that there is no a huge demand. Tea towels are not provided as there is plenty of good drainage for washing up and tea towels are unhygienic. Also nobody else has ever requested this in 10 years of us owning the property. There are usually dish cloths, sponges and washing up brushes available. From what was said the flat's hairdryer appears to have gone missing.
The housekeeper usually repaints at the end of the season if and where required. We have passed your comments to the housekeeper. We normally receive plenty of positive feedback about the property.
We look forward to you staying as a guest in future.
Sehr günstig und ruhig
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.
