About Villa

Thoughtfully designed and constructed to impress patricians and inspire artists.

Only ever used as a family residence, Villa Platamone was built in the 1820’s and has retained many of the original features owing much to the 3 families who kept the Villa over the last two centuries.

Recently renovated with the highest attention to historic details, we invite you to join us and discover the villa’s restored frescos, sculptures, paintings and its own beautiful park.
