Villa Tasca

10 guests · 4 bedrooms · 5.5 baths
All the glories of Italy’s past—stately neoclassical architecture, trompe-l’oeil frescoes, Murano chandeliers, gilt-framed paintings—make for a sumptuous present at this Renaissance villa between Palermo and Monreale. While parts of the estate date from the 1500s, the exquisite 20-acre gardens transport visitors to the late-1800s Romantic era—all 7 minutes from the must-see Cappella Palatina.
Play family games on the lush lawns, stir up Victorian-style intrigue amid century-old trees and citrus groves, steal a honeymoon-worthy moment in the greenhouse, and watch the swans paddle their way around their pond. There’s also a swimming pool and furnished terrace and, inside, a billiards room, music room, bar, TV, and Wi-Fi. Your holiday at the estate includes service from a full staff.
The villa itself rises proudly out of the gardens, with a double staircase sweeping up to its main floor. The living and dining rooms are laid out on a grand scale, with high ceilings, tall windows, and decorations on nearly every surface, whether landscape paintings filling the walls and area rugs overlaying the polished stone floors or colorful motifs splashing across the tile.
The grandeur continues in the bedrooms at this vacation rental; 1 has a king bed and the other 3 have queen beds. All 4 bedrooms have private ensuite bathrooms, air conditioning, and a lounge area or sitting room. Details like gold-edged portraits, carved wooden wardrobes, and marble bathroom tiles make a statement in each suite.
This luxury enclave is a 10-minute drive or less from the golden mosaics of the Cappella Palatina and the surrounding Palazzo dei Normanni, and the extraordinary Cappuccini Catacombs. Head to Monreale for a walk by the port, a visit to the cathedral, or a stop at a family-friendly waterpark. It’s also a short trip to the center of Palermo, whose colorful streets are a mix of architecture from across the Mediterranean.
