History

la storia di villa bordonaroBuilt in the 18th century for his Majesty the king Ferdinand and her Majesty the Queen Carolina of Borbone during their exile in Sicily, Villa Chiaramonte Bordonaro ai Colli is still today the house of the Barons Chiaramonte Bordonaro. Baron Luigi Chiaramonte Bordonaro Alliata described by the international press as the last ” Gattopardo”, and father of the current owners Gabriele and Anna Stella, turned his home into a meeting place for the most important and renowned personalities at that time from the worlds of sport, art, politics, and culture. Thanks to the his wife Baroness Beatrice Peria Boscogrande, the gardens were transformed into one of the most beautifull parks in Palermo.

They were redesigned in a pecular italian style.Walking along the avenues shaded by horse chestnuts in bloom and lined with hawthorn hedges which contrast with the bright red of the judas trees,time seems to stand still. Today the owners have chosen to open up their home to those who wish to celebrate special occasions amidst the enduring pomp and splendour of olden times.
