HOTEL

This villa, steeped in history, stands proudly in one of the historical districts of Cagliari and is one of the city’s best kept secrets. With its rich past and exciting present, the Art Nouveau style of the exterior blends in seamlessly with the contemporary design of its 19 delightful rooms. Villa Fanny is a tribute to a woman of times gone by, the matriarch of a prominent Sardinian family, an inspiration for future generations.

HISTORY

Fanny was a girl whose behaviour was discerningly restrained, she had a kind face and was proud of her origins. She came from a prominent Sardinian family who taught her the importance of hospitality and a good education. She went to Paris for some years, where she frequented the cultural salons and enchanted the other guests with her charming demeanour. Fanny loved the company of her Uncle Lao, who was no ordinary uncle. Born in Samassi in 1883, Stanislao Silesu was one of the most well-known and popular composers of chamber and symphonic music of his day. He was dubbed the King of Melody by Edward VIII of England. 


Lao told Fanny stories of passionate artists and tormented lives, then put them to music. She listed to him enraptured as she dreamt of meeting her true love. In 1952 Fanny’s dream came true. She met Ercole Cellino, a young man from Piedmont who decided to move to Sardinia to be with her. From that day, Fanny devoted herself to her family, supporting her husband on the long journey which led to the creation of the Cellino Group. Today, Fanny and Ercole’s children are embarking on a new adventure in the heart of Cagliari. They have dedicated a hotel to their mother, paying tribute to the tradition of hospitality she taught them. And they have chosen a very special place to do it, an old villa which some say was home to their great-uncle Lao Silesu. 

Villa Fanny is a story with a happy ending, a story of the desire to pay tribute to a woman of the past and her homeland, where her children and grandchildren have grown up.
