We are a family of two adults and two small kids and stayed for four nights in Massimo's attic flat. It is very well located near many nice mountains. The flat itself has two separate bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, but it has no living room or dining room or balcony. The only common space to congregate is a small four person table which fits tightly in the windowless kitchen. So while this apartment is in a great location, it is not somewhere that you would want to spend a great deal of time in the apartment itself. The photos of the grill and picnic table shown on the profile are shared with other apartments. Ms Fronthaler made us feel very welcome.
We shared the apartment between three adults and one teenager. It is a remodeled attic of a big house located about 1 km from the town square of Dobbiaco. As promised, it has no wifi (regard it as detox feature, not as a bug) so the closest place to get on the net is on the square where it is free but on the sluggish side. The baths have no curtains: learn to take sitting showers in the in the tub. A lot of the ceilings are angled so you have to be careful with your head to avoid bruises. As there are no ventilators, you have to create drafts on a hot day to aerate the place. The kitchen is equipped for minimal cooking demands but has zero supplies (salt, pepper, cleaning necessities). Everything was clean and in working condition. There is limited storage and no convenient way of drying wet clothing so it may be a bit challenging in the winter.
Saving the day is the extremely friendly and helpful Mrs. Fronthaler (the 'housekeeper'). She assisted us in any way she could and definitely made the stay very pleasant. She even volunteered to machine wash our clothes. Having a grilled meal on the lawn in front of the house is a great treat of fresh air and natural beauty surrounding you. Sunrise views are breath-taking. As to the Dolomites themselves - 'stunning' barely comes close to to describing the beauty.
We spent a long weekend at Massimo's apartment and had a wonderful time. The location is very good for hiking, with trails right outside the village. We didn't meet Massimo, but Mrs. Fronthaler was very nice and checked in everyday to make sure we had everything we needed. She doesn't speak English though, so German or Italian skills are very helpful. Thanks again, Massimo!
Massimo was incredibly nice and communicated with us promptly. The flat is delightful, immerse in the valley, among the mountains, simply paradisiac. The lady who opened the flat for us was extremely kind and available (she lives in the same building). The flat was nicely warm with 2 bathrooms! Wooden floor and a fully equipped kitchen, indeed we dined in a couple of nights and had breakfast there every morning. All perfectly kept and very clean. Can't say better than that! Simply wonderful!
The flat is absolutely correspond to the description. It was simple to find the place, Massimo provided us a good instructions. Communication was absolutely fine. Everything in the haus is not very new and modern, but in a very good condition. The decoration is simple but really sweet.
There was the only disadvantage for us. The heating system works only twice a day: morning and evening. As for me it was too cold there and I had to sleep in sweater. So if you like to wear a T-shot at home it is probably not the right place to stay at winter.
We did not meet Massimo himself, but there is a very nice lady who lives in the house und made a delicious cookies and pie for us. And that is not it. I forgot my hair dryer. In spite of there is no any hair dryer in the description, she brought one for me. It was very kind of her! Thanks a lot for that! So nice and kind person makes you like to came back again.
la vacanza purtroppo troppo breve e' stata perfetta. la casa belka confortevole e ben curata . un bagno per camera!!!!! la signora gentilissima, il posto incantevole
Both Massimo and Mrs Fronthaler are very friendly and helpful. The place is clean and both Massimo and Mrs Fronthaler are very nice and kind.
The only few things we want to highlight is that:
- there is public transport but we believe this is quite inefficient, at least for winter time... if you want to ski you have to drive your car to the slopes unless you don't want to spend one/two extra hours; even in order to reach dobbiaco the quickest way is to drive (5 mins, but may take ages by bus)..
- the is no wi-fi;
- despite it is an airbnb flat, no breakfast was served and we had to buy everything (salt and and dish /body soap included)
- our room was on the top floor hence ceilings very short (having the shower was not the top of the comfort).
Having said that, the place is an excellent value for money house if you compare how expensive are the rest of the accommodation on the rest of the valley.
