Set against the mountainside, a few minutes away from Bellagio and a few more from Como, Filario is a modern retiro where a genuine sense of hospitality together with a stunning location are the perfect mix for a luxuriously modern vibe, since the first season. Charming for its enchanting views of Bellagio, Villa Balbianello, and Comacina Island and most of all for its interior, a combination of light and strong-tempered objects. Filario fits as the perfect destination for the modern nomads, reaching out for a fresh luxe, an almost casual atmosphere, focused on experiencing a truly local setting.
The name itself is related to the territory, to Como and its famous silk production, as to the Lake, also known as Lario. Filario, plays on the theme of heritage fusion filo, meaning thread of silk, and lario, which was the Roman name for the lake. Filo suggest a strong connection to the site where the building stands, once a small wire factory today one of the few modern properties on Lake Como. Hotel Filario is a sublime, contemporary fixture that blends seamlessly with its historical surroundings. Italian heritage and artisanship are a focal point throughout the hotel, from the rationalist geometric structure, to the use of local stones, typical of the Lombardy region, to ensure that the façade integrates nicely into the mountainside.
“History relates to tourism and travel. It’s more than just looking at something beautiful. It’s knowing the past, what to discover, the architecture and the movements.” - Alessandro Sironi
Opened in 2015, Filario is the brainchild of local entrepreneur and hotelier, Alessandro Sironi, who shaped it together with the interior designer Agrati, and the developer Nessi & Majocchi. The hotel shows them all: his strong passion in hospitality, his intrinsic knowledge and respect for his own culture, expressed in many fields such as in architecture, food and aesthetic.
Creating settings that are perfect for one to sit and contemplate or dive into the natural surroundings, Filario offers a wow wake up with a like-side vista in each accommodation, a infinity pool also facing the lake and the rarest thing of Lake Como: a private beach. Filario shows there's a new way to do Como without the pretence.
