Just spent a beautiful week on como with our 3 kids aged between 8&14years. Dongo is a quaint quiet town on the lakeshore with a couple of lovely pizzaria's and a lovely cafe/bar on the small piazza itself. You should hire a car for maximum mobility for easy travel to other local towns in the area. We visited so many of them and were quite blown away by the beauty of the environment. There are also boats that act as transport to and from the gorgeous must see towns of bellagio, verenna and menaggio, boats do come into Dongo itself but with less regularity. Lucia is a wonderful host and her family own a shop just 50 yards down the road from the property. It was nice to have her and her friendly family so close by. The apartment itself is clean, modern and fully equipped. My one suggestion would be to pack a small fan in the summer months. We arrived in a hot spell!

The Four Palms is a very cozy and compact place that was perfect for us two adults and our five year old daughter. It could hardly be better positioned to profit from the charming town of Dongo. It's really central and also very close to free parking. Lucia could not always be reached but she made sure that somebody was continually available in case we needed help. We did meet her though, as well as her sister and mother and also two friends. They were all charming and friendly and made us almost feel part of a small community. Our little daughter was particularly charmed by their friendliness. We could imagine returning. What could be better praise than that?

The flat is located in a lovely little road very close to the lake (100 metres approx). There is a little garden just next to it too (which we enjoyed for our evening aperitif) . Parking facilities are easy. The flat has been recently renovated - all brand new - contains every possible thing you might need on holiday - very light and airy - you can see that Lucia and her twin sister have really tried to think about every single detail. Flat is very comfortable for five grown ups . The twins' mother baked us a chocolate cake to welcome us with a Belgian and an Italian flag which was just lovely. They live close to the appartment and are ready to help if you need them. they have also prepared a book full of information about Como Dongo is a nice little place around the lake - close to the flat you have a really long walk all along the river . We rented a motorboat for two days and had a beautiful time. I wish we had staied a further two nights. I was very pleasantly surprised to see that Como was not infested with tourists - you can find loads of quiet places. The kids really fell in love with Como - we already knew the place and it confirmed how wonderful it is

Me and my son spend Four wonderful days in Dongo using Lucia's great apartment as the base exploring the surroundings. The apartment is well equipped with all necessary stuff i.e. Kitchen tools, beds for Big family, towels, tv, internet (though a bit slow - not a problem for emails). Communication with Lucia was very easy both before and during our visit. We received good advise about places of interest, restaurants, boat hiring etc. The apartment has a great location Right in the center of this very small and Nice place. Even though you Can not Really see the Lake itself, the view to the old town provided a good atmosphere. All in all good value, modern and spacious

Lucia and her cousin Dora were super helpful. They called in several times to make sure we don't get lost. The apartment is as described. Extremely bright due to big windows everywhere. The kitchen is fully equipped for all possible meals (even crepes!). The apartment was very clean as well, with towels, bed linens and bed covers for everyone. Oh, and the shower is amazing! A nice big rainforest shower head! The beach is also very close by, roughly 10-15 minutes by foot.
