Hotel Filario and Residence

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.

Other Restaurant Nearby
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.

Location

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.
