Tips to personalise your holiday in Lake Como

Overview

Situated in a peaceful setting in the village of Lezzeno, the Hotel Filario opened in summer 2015, on the site of a former wire factory, with minimalist interior décor in classic shades of neutrals and earthy browns by Italian designer Alessandro Agrati.

 

The hotel’s location allows guests a slightly more authentic experience to that found in the busier, more touristy centres on the lake and staff are happy to organise midnight fishing trips, wine-tasting tours, visits to artisan cheese makers and water taxis.

 

Downtime is on a small stretch of private beach, directly accessible from the hotel, and an infinity pool offers fabulous lake views. There is also a small gym (personal trainers available) in addition to in-room massages and beauty treatments.

Rooms

Bedrooms range from 35m² for a superior or deluxe room to the magnificent 95m² Grand Suite, and all have private terraces with lake views. Luxury touches include Frette linens, rain showers, complimentary Sky TV and free online access to more than 3,000 newspapers and magazines.

 

The super-deluxe residences are a great option for couples or families. With views of Villa Balbianello, Comacina Island and Tremezzo, the serviced apartments feature locally handmade furniture, flat screen TV’s, an Espresso machine and private boat mooring. All apartments (one, two or three bedrooms) have a fully-furnished kitchen, living room and a garden or terrace right on the lake front.

Dining

Breakfast – Italian-style and al fresco – is served on the terrace overlooking the water during warmer months. The Bistrò restaurant features authentic, classic Italian food.

 

A particularly interesting place to dine is the lakeside restaurant Crotto dei Pescatori where chef Giovanni Barindelli proposes a classic menu of Italian cuisine and lots of freshwater fish, try the lake fish carpione style with capers and olives.

Map

Located five miles south of Bellagio, the Filario Hotel is a good alternative for those who prefer a more peaceful location to some of the more crowded hotel-packed towns around Lake Como. Water taxis can be organised from Varenna (which links directly by rail to Milan) and other points around the lake.

Alternatively, passenger ferries stop at Lezzeno several times a day – mainly early morning and evening – with more mid-lake ferries running more frequently from nearby Bellagio.

The hotel is ideally situated for visiting some of Lake Como’s most spectacular gardens, including Villa Carlotta, Villa Balbianello and, in Varenna, Villa Cipressi and Villa Monastero. Varenna is one of the lake’s most charming towns, with a pretty waterfront and narrow winding lanes.

This is the third occasion that Antonio has organised an Italian holiday for me. As it was a Birthday celebration involving a party of 10, the arrangements were complex, involving a villa, guides and attendance at the Palio on July 2nd. Without exception everything went exactly as planned. The recommended villa on the Montestigliano Estate, south west of Siena, was wonderful. Our guide made sure we had a full understanding of the history and culture of the Palio which meant that, with a spectacular view over the Campo from the apartment booked by Antonio, we were able to appreciate the event that much more. We shall certainly be going back to Italy with Expertoitaly.read more

Antonio with his meticulous planning and caring service has been solely responsible for the best Italian holidays we have had. His ability to offer excellent hotel accommodation which provides for every need and requirement is second to none . Hotels that are not main stream , that provide high quality of service in excellent locations are one of Antonio’s strength. It’s great to have a provider that know and understands his market.

July 2018 _________________________________ Have just completed another 10 day holiday arranged by Antonio at Expert to Italy. We went with Antonio's suggestion and spent 2 days at Matera and then the remainder in Pisciotta in the Cilento. Matera was amazing and felt completely different to anywhere else we have been in Italy. We loved Pisciotta and the hotel was wonderful with lovely owners who were great at suggesting things to do. We visited a buffalo farm, a vinyard and tooks boats to isolated coves with lovely clear water. All arrangements were absolutely faultless. We would never have found such lovely places without Antonio! 2016 _________________________________ We have just returned from a fantastic holiday suggested no arranged by ExpertTo Italy. Once again the organisation by Antonio was flawless and everything worked perfectly. We spent 5 nights by lake Maggiore and 3 in Cogne in the Italian Alps. Both hotels and locations were fantastic - particularly the Bellvue in Cogne. Please see trip advisor if interested in the hotels as I will give a more specific review there - I'm not a fanatic reviewer but both really deserve it. We have used this company for the past 5 years and Antonio seems to have a real gift for finding fantastic hotels and matching locations to his clients. I would not usually put the level of trust in anyone to arrange holidays for me that I have with Antonio but he has delivered every time and I can unreservedly recommend his services. Italy is a beautiful country with huge variety - if you describe what you like to Antonio and let him make suggestions then you will not be disappointed. Very definitely 5 stars from me. So - Antonio and team, please keep it up! Jonread more

Antonio delivered more than expected! Our family of four stayed at two beautiful villa's on the Amalfi Coast. Both of the locations were top class. Antonio provided excellent service and was always available if we had questions about the details of our trip. He was easy to work with and we would recommend his services to others traveling to Italy.read more
