Casa Fantini/lake time is the highlight of an exclusive experience by Lake Orta. A place of harmony, where landscape, architecture and light blend in a perfect equilibrium and time seems frozen as if by magic. Casa Fantini is a boutique hotel, designed by Lissoni Architettura, that consists of two lakefront buildings. Wood and stones are the natural materials used to blend in with the surrounding and the spirit of the place. Casa Fantini counts with 5 superior rooms, 4 prestige rooms and 2 suites. All rooms have amazing lake view and all bathrooms are equipped also with turkish bath. Casa Fantini experience begins from the lounge, the heart of the house, with a cozy atmosphere for quiet meditative pauses inspired by the vision of the landscape, as well as sharing relationships and socializing. Water is the common thread that links Casa Fantini to the history, the natural setting, the Lake Time elements.: the placid water of the lake and the pool water in the peace of the garden.

We've been invited for dinner by our friends, who were staying at the hotel and we had a ball! We actually had some initial difficulties finding the main entrance, in spite of being in the main square of the village, but once arrived, we loved how the restaurant was beautifully styled, elegant and modern at the same time. Once arrived, we were welcomed by Chef Diego, who explained the new menu with so much passion that we decided to let him do his thing and surprise us with his degustation menu. Best choice ever, it surpassed our expectations. We knew Italian food was delicious, but the food here was OTT! Service was friendly and attentive and our waitress recommended lovely pairing wines that complemented our food experience. We will definitely pay another visit next time we are in Italy - Highly recommended!

Everything from the brilliant lakeside location, lake views, incredibly designed rooms, fantastic food, Amazing service .... was terrific. Thanks to Simona for a wonderful stay. Will surely be back. The rooms are spacious and have great views - and Orta is an incredible lake. One can even take a boat directly from the hotel to Orta SAN Giulio. There are two restaurants nearby which are also amazing. The aperitivos each evening are amazing. All in all, amazing.

.. in Pella, overlooking Orta san Giulio, stunning elegant Design Boutique hotel, marvelous garden and pool; great common spaces and dining room, impeccable service. Lunching and dining only for guests by excellent house cook, only one menu though, fabulous breakfast. It’s unique and the best on the lake, (probably ...) reason for the very high prices .. definitely a gem !

We are staying here for a few days more to relax before returning to London. What a stunning hotel, delicious food and luxurious rooms. Lake Orta is a quieter lake than Garda, for example, but it is certainly stunning - the location of this ultra modern hotel on the water is breathtaking. As mentioned by a previous reviewer, the hotel has made discreet adaptions due to covid but we are having a fabulous time relaxing by the pool. We shall definitely return!!

We are very lucky to be able to extend our stay here to 2 weeks. Despite the complications that COVID 19 is causing everywhere, the hotel has lots of systems in place to keep everyone safe whilst still being able to thoroughly enjoy the stay. The hotel is very beautiful and it’s position on the water is stunning. Only 11 rooms, but the hotel feels very spacious with communal rooms galore - other hotels would have aimed to squeeze in more bedrooms, but not here. It’s a really beautiful, informal ‘home’. Breakfast is delicious, and the same for dinner. On our first night we did the tasting menu with wine pairing - excellent quality and value for money. We have set Alberto (who has worked at incredible 5 star hotels across the world) a task of feeding us each night ‘off menu’ which the chef will gladly organise: so far the duck and chateau Briand have been excellent. Rooms are very comfortable, all with views, and the toiletries are very good quality. This hotel is a brilliant choice, probably because the whole team genuinely want customers to enjoy their time here. Daniela, the lovely owner, checks discreetly that everything is in order, and Simona who manages the hotel will arrange for every single request to be seen to immediately. Nothing is too much trouble. The same is true of every member of staff from the cleaning team to the breakfast team, all working really hard with a smile. It’s a really excellent quality hotel and an excellent choice.

Brand new and modern hotel (a rarity for this region) which boasts every luxury you need and showcases some stunning design (very Nordic chic). Luxurious rooms with views over Lake Orta, fancy bathrooms (including a mini sauna!), a sizable pool and beautiful gardens which shelter from the busy lake shore outside. The staff couldnt do enough, constantly checking on you. There is free water and snacks throughout the day in the reception area with a free glass of wine in the evenings together with some antipasti to enjoy in the garden. There are a few restaurants around but we chose to have a 5 course dinner at the hotel with wine which again was faultless (might have had some of the best Pasta ever here) so compliments to the chef. Breakfast is individualised with little trays of fruit juice, pastry and yoghurts brought to your table and you can order eggs, etc. We were very sad to leave and cannot wait to return. The ferries to Orta San Guilio and Isola San Guilio are just outside the hotel gates and run a regular schedule in summer.

This is a small boutique hotel on the side of Lake Orta. I'd not heard of either before hand. The Lake is a quiet, well kept secret and the hotel much the same. As the hotel only has 11 rooms, the staff got to know us and our preferences. The restaurant superb, and although the menu was a little limited, they stressed that they would prepare anything with a little advance notice. The rooms were stylishly appointed and very comfy with a lovely view over the lake. Parking is 'just round the corner' though no real distance to walk. Definitely going to make a return visit.

This is very much a designer boutique hotel. Sadly rather too often style has triumphed over practicality. For example, our suite had the most fantastic bathroom with a steam room, massage shower and even a chromatherapy system. What it didn't have was sufficient lighting, a shaving/make-up mirror or anywhere to place soap or shampoo when using the beautiful free-standing bath. We had a very sophisticated in-room safe but in order to use it one had to go on one's hands and knees! The television had a vast number of channels but sadly not one of them was British. Lastly, and most seriously, the dark colour of the floor coupled with very poor demarcation of steps caused this guest to plunge head first into a wall mounted fire extinguisher! On the positive side, the staff are wonderful, the garden is small but lovely, the breakfast is a delight and the food served from the restaurant, albeit from a rather limited menu, is delicious. Pella is indeed a very small and quiet village ( part of its charm ) and this could easily be established prior to travelling there one would have thought. In conclusion, Casa Fantini is a delightful place in which to spend a few days but it needs to improve a few things in rder to justify a five star rating.
