Romantic one bedroom apartment with stunning lake views. Beautifully restored 'home from home' living.

Dolce Mistero is the perfect property from which to enjoy everything that Lake Como has to offer. The property has been designed with the discerning traveller in mind. Comfortable and relaxing interiors, fully equipped kitchen for those who like to cook, beautiful oak super king bed with oversized cotton linens and blankets. A true 'home from home' feel. The apartment is the perfect romantic retreat for two people. Set in a quiet position but with easy walking access to the lake. Stunning views of the lake from the lounge and the bedroom properties.

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! I am an kitchen and interior designer and you will feel very at home in our beautiful apartment.

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 worked for two 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 !

A lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Dolce Mistero! The apartment was very well equipped and tastefully furnished. The views onto the lake are to die for! The property is quiet and peaceful yet close to the hustle and bustle of Lake Como. There are plenty of walks one can do and excellent restaurants to go to after a long hike. I would highly recommend Dolce Mistero.

Fantastic and unforgettable stay at Dolce Mistero!

  • 5 of 5

We were absolutely stunned when we entered the apartment, as the owners thought of every single little detail in terms of interior, kitchen equipment, decorations. The purpose from our stay was to wind down from some hectic months and 3 weeks there completely recharged us. Sitting on the balcony having breakfast in the morning, or a small anti-pasta plate with a glass of wine with the views from Dolce Mistero will make sure that anyone will slow down and experience true Dolce Vita! The owners, Karen and Steve are the most hospitable people you can imagine and they will make sure that everything is taken care of. We want to and will come back in the future!
