About karen white

I live in Umbria with my husband and two spaniels. We love the outdoors and spend many hours walking either in the hills of Umbria or the mountains in Lake Como with our dogs. We love everything that Italy has to offer......good food, sunshine, gelato and hospitality! We work here in Italy helping people restore and renovate tumbled down piles of stones!

karen white purchased this apartment in 2010

Why karen white chose Sala Comacina

The area around the lake is truly beautiful so when we came across this derelict property, we just couldn't resist! We have worked over the last 2 years restoring Dolce Mistero making it into comfortable and homely place that our guests will want to return to. Many of the properties on the lake are new and modern so it was a great opportunity for us to preserve a piece of the history of Sala Comacina.

What makes this apartment unique

Once you are there Dolce Mistero really does have the best of both worlds in that you can enjoy both the lake and mountains without having to get in the car again. It is a 5 minute stroll down to Sala Comacina port which has a few nice restaurants, and during the summer the ferry stops there which is ideal if you want to go over to Bellagio. You can walk directly from the house right up into the mountains if you want to get away from everything. From the top there are truly spectacular views in all directions - it's well worth the effort of getting up there! We have made Dolce Mistero a comfortable 'home from home' experience for our guests. There is an abundance of things to see and do on Lake Como....too many to list here. But I'm confident you would enjoy it for sure !

We had the most amazing time staying at this property! It is beautifully decorated and feels like home from home. It has a lot of character, is super clean and also has a really well equipped kitchen. The views are amazing and you can neither see nor hear any traffic. I can definitely recommend this property!
