Villa Tasca 


Please, be familiar with the villa clicking on the following links. You'll absolutely make the right choice to be with us!



Villa Tasca is located on the road from Palermo to Monreale, in a 20-acre park full of citrus orchards and majestic century-old trees. While the Villa was originally built in the 1500ds, the oasis that protects it is one of Sicily's most emblematic Victorian-era Romantic gardens. The curvilinear stone-bordered pathways and the lush tropical vegetation carry one away into a rich world of silence and suggestion. These more thickly planted areas are complemented by English lawns that allow the garden to be experienced with lightness and simplicity, even during every-day activities.


The large and well-lit interiors are characterized by pastoral frescoes and tile-work that transmit that same balance of liveliness and serenity found in the garden inside the Villa.

A historic place and a family home in one. A living environment where guests will be immersed in the same atmosphere experienced by Jacqueline Kennedy, King Ferdinand IV and Queen Caroline, Bismarck, Margherita di Savoia, or set to music by composers as Wagner or Verdi.
