The accommodation was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Tony could not have been more helpful and the brochure sent to us was full of excellent tips on restaurants and places to see....

We had a great time at Casa Dansam. Tony was a very attentive and caring host. E.g. he provided a small bath tub for our Baby that we had forgotten at home. Moreover, he gave us many ideas which places we needed to visit. We really enjouyed our stay and would like to recommend Casa Dansam to to other travellers.

Management response:

Dear Anselm, We really appreciate you taking the time to submit a review for Casa Dansam, and the favourable comments you make. It was a pleasure to have you and your family as guests, and trust you will consider the apartment again as the base for your holiday, should you wish to visit Lake Maggiore again in the future..
