The soul of the Hotel Il Porticciolo, is Elisabetta Ballerini, mother of chef Riccardo Bassetti and wife of Giovanni. It is her taste that decorates all the common areas, restaurants and rooms, from fabrics to objects. This is why, in 2021, Suite 218 was born. A treasure chest in which her ideas about fashion, art and design finally take shape. It is here that Elisabetta personally selects clothing, bags, accessories and perfumes, on sale for all guests of the hotel.
Balance, harmony and sustainability are the pillars of the philosophy that Elisabetta implements within her very personal "room". Warm tones, pastel colors, soft and natural fabrics, elegance and comfort. But the project does not stop there.
In the heart of Laveno Mombello, a few hundred meters from the Hotel, Suite 218 opens its doors to the whole village, with a store that further expands the offer and brings the DNA of Il Porticciolo beyond the walls of the Hotel. A project that responds to the many requests from the most loyal customers, who often asked to buy the “pieces” inside the Hotel. From today, finally, they can do it.
