• Rooms
    The hotel’s 14 rooms and suites are furnished with the glittering luxury of the 19th-century, and some feature Arabesque features in the windows and doors. Parquet flooring, en-suite marble bathrooms and period antiques give the rooms a sophisticated elegance. We particularly love the beds: topped with handmade mattresses, they are among some of the finest in the entire world.

    Introduction

    Nestled on the sleepy shores of Lake Orta in Piedmont, Villa Crespi has an enchanting Moorish design and a restaurant that has won worldwide acclaim. The 19th-century villa was inspired by Middle Eastern architecture, and the elegant intricacies of its décor have a dreamlike, otherworldly quality. The hotel’s luxurious hospitality is regularly singled out for awards, and Villa Crespi’s commitment to the wellness of their guests can be seen in the exclusive use of eco-friendly, hypoallergenic products.

    Villa Crespi is well-known to foodies from all corners of the globe for its restaurant. Under the auspices of Chef Antonino Cannavacciulo the restaurant has been awarded two of the coveted Michelin stars. Chef Antonino himself is internationally recognised, both for his cooking and for his television appearances as a judge on Masterchef Italia.
    Whether you come to Villa Crespi seeking peace and tranquility amidst this beautiful natural scenery, or you’re a proud gastronomer looking to tantalise your tastebuds, your stay here will be truly unforgettable.

    Activities
    Pamper yourself at the hotel’s wellness centre, which offers Ayurvedic treatments and massages to soothe and relax. For those who find themselves inspired by Chef Antonino’s cooking, the hotel arranges cooking courses and experiences where you will learn the secrets behind the restaurant’s magical cooking. The hotel offers a wealth of activities to keep you entertained for the entirety of your stay, including a rather spirited excursion with a difference: a trip to the nearby grappa distillery, where you’ll learn how this traditional spirit is made and, of course, have the chance to taste.

    The hotel has an enchanting location on the banks of Lake Orta, and the charming village of Orta San Giulio is just a short walk away.  The village is home to the Sacro Monte dedicated to St Francis of Assisi, a UNESCO heritage site and a real treasure-trove of Renaissance art. No visit would be complete without a trip to the beautiful Island of San Giulio on the lake, which abounds with myths and legends.

    Dining

    Chef Antonino Cannavucciulo serves elegant meals that combine the traditional cooking of his Neapolitan upbringing with the flavours and ingredients of his adopted Piedmont, and his talents have brought Villa Crespi international acclaim as well as two Michelin stars.

    The menu is constantly shifting according to the season and what’s available, so every meal here will be a true culinary adventure. The degustation menus are a special highlight, and are undeniably atmospheric whether enjoyed in the sophisticated dining room or al fresco on the veranda.
