Featuring spacious gardens and an enchanting fountain, the Villa is located a 14-minute drive from the heart of Palermo. Villa del Gattopardo Suites & SPA will welcome you with all the charm and refinement of the traditional Sicilian aristocratic residences, giving you the authentic atmosphere of one of the most celebrated literary masterpieces in the world, “The Leopard”, written by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, the last heir of this stunning residence.
The Leopard (In Italian: Il Gattopardo) is a 1963 epic historical drama film directed by the famous movie director Luchino Visconti, with a cast of notable actors such as Bart Lancaster, Alain Delon, and Claudia Cardinale.
The residence, which is accessed by a large grand staircase, is characterized by a first noble floor with enfilade halls, painted with magnificent grotesque decorations, where the stuccoes of the Serpotta and the valuable frescoes by the artist Fumagalli stand out, skilfully recovered from the master restorers, and adorned by the still intact eighteenth-century flooring.
The entire noble floor of Villa del Gattopardo could be used as splendid Ballroom seats up to 150 guests for a reception, lunch, dinner, an exclusive meeting or conference, charity ball, also using the adjacent terraces.
The villa is surrounded by beautiful gardens, too. Step into our Garden of Scents, and enjoy moments in the Italian sunshine surrounded by colourful flowers and aromatic herbs. Time feels almost suspended, here – a stark contrast to the fast-paced city life just around the corner. Villa del Gattopardo is in a privileged position, close to the city centre and only a few minutes away from the marvellous Mondello Beach and important sport structures. See it allwhile staying at a hotel that’s literally the stuff of novels.
