Lake Como’s New Contemporary hotel: Filario Hotel & Residences
Perched on the shores of Lake Como, Filario Hotel & Residences’ generous spaces and stunning location set the scene for Italian lakeside elegance.
A member of Design Hotels, Filario Hotel & Residences has modern cut stone façade houses, 21 rooms and apartments, each with their own private terrace to take in the restorative air and panoramic vistas.
Well-known Italian designer Alessandro Agrati lent his magic to Filario’s décor, implementing his signature style of “dressing” interiors with textiles and light and strong-tempered objects.
The spacious guestrooms and apartments here offer a cocoon-like feel heightened by subtle elegance. Raw, natural fabrics were locally-sourced for the linen curtains and accessories, and Frette bed linen ensures a sublimely comfortable night’s sleep.
Italian heritage and artisanship are a focal point at the hotel, which has been furnished with custom-made pieces by local craftsmen in the neighboring town of Cantù, a hub for high-end Italian design.
Although it is one of the few areas in Lake Como to boast a beach, Lezzeno remains a largely undiscovered region, allowing for an authentic and quintessential Italian experience. Authenticity and provenance are also central to the family-owned hotel’s philosophy, and a close relationship with the local community allows guests to experience the ‘real’ Lombardy: from moonlit fishing trips to private vineyard tours.
Lezzeno offers plenty of water activities along with history. Apart from waterskiing and wakeboarding, guests can also hire speedboats from the neighboring shipyards or make use of the traditional wooden water taxis to visit Bellagio. The region’s beautiful medieval villages enchant with their picturesque cobbled lanes, magnificent villas, and quaint shops featuring enticing local wares.
Finally, Filario Hotel & Residences’ bistro offers the best the region has to offer—authentic, fresh Italian dishes and wine. Filario also has its own private beach and an infinity pool that stretches deep into the glimmering blue of the wishbone-shaped lake. For the ultimate relaxing holiday, massages can be booked in the comfort and privacy of one’s guestroom.
The unique atmosphere and culture of Lezzeno offers guests a refreshingly authentic alternative to Lake Como’s more established regions. The luxuriously modern vibe of Filario Hotel & Residences fits right in with the picturesque, old-world charm of Lake Como.
