Two for one
Contemporary and elegant, the hotel has been designed by world famous Italian architect Piero Lissoni of Lissoni Architettura, who worked with hotel owner Daniela Fantini, CEO of Fantini Rubinetti, to interpret her vision for a hotel inspired by the slow pace of the lake.
The hotel is split between two buildings- one a X1X century house and the other thoroughly contemporary, resulting in a unique design with perfect symmetry.
Elegance and understatement
The lake and its natural surroundings are the inspiration for Casa Fantini’s Interior. Lissoni’s signature style is a blend of elegance and understatement. He uses warm materials such as wood and textiles integrated with iconic pieces of contemporary design ensuring all blends in harmoniously with the natural environment.
Casa Fantini is the brainchild of Italian designer Daniela Fantini who created the hotel to be a reflection of a family home. The Fantini family has lived on the Western shores of Lake Orta for more than three generations. The headquarters of Daniela’s family business, Fantini Rubinetterie, which makes elegantly designed bathroom fittings, has been operating in Pella since 1947 with showrooms in Milan, Moscow and New York.
Daniela explains, “Casa Fantini is born from my love for the spirit of the place, for what is genuine and handcrafted and in that represents the culture of the territory, where I find my roots. A place where to live an emotional experience in LAKE TIME spirit at a slow pace and surrounded by the mystic aura and silence inspired by the lake.”
The lounge, with its breathtaking views over the lake. is the beating heart of Casa Fantini. Guests are encouraged to come together for an aperitif at the end of the day and owner Daniela Fantini is often seeing welcoming them.
