In 1976, Anton Tacoli took over the management of the See Villa hotel. Under his direction, extensive renovations were carried out while many new features were added. One of his first projects was the remodeling of the restaurant. While doing theses renovations, particular care was taken to preserve the original design of the building which was developed by the renowned architects Mayreder and Köchlin.
Many of the guest rooms were turned into spacious, elegant suites of the highest comfort while the boathouse was transformed into a spa. Marchese Anton Tacoli wanted to give his guests the same experience that guests received at the time the See-Villa was founded . For this reason, the materials used during the renovation were sourced chiefly from around the Millstatt area while textiles were imported from Italy.
