For 53 years The Villa Vosilla, an Intimate Italian Boutique Resort, has celebrated the music, cuisine and song of Italy, promoting its culture throughout the social season. Our circle of Family and Friends wishes to express its sincerest gratitude to generations of loyal clientele for our continued success.
Our home is located in the heart of the Catskill Park, in the most beautiful Great Northern Catskill Mountains of the Upper Hudson Valley. National Geographic Traveler had named our region "ONE OF THE TOP 20 WORLD-CLASS BEST TRAVEL VACATION DESTINATIONS IN THE WORLD". Our unique gem, surrounded by mesmerizing views and clean fresh mountaintop air, is situated on pristine Scenic Byway Route 23A, a historic path, in the picturesque village of Tannersville New York.
Nonno John Vosilla Sr. was the first family member to come to this country. He worked tirelessly, saved money to purchase a home, and brought over his wife Nonna Katina and family. Through all their years, they always welcomed European immigrant families to live in their home until these immigrants were able to support themselves. Nonno and Nonna were a very special couple whose door was always open and always available to help everyone.
Skilled in restaurants and kitchens in New York City, John Vosilla Sr. and John Vosilla Jr. fell in love with the Upper Catskills, which was reminiscent of the mountains in Europe. Searching for an opportunity to own a hospitality business in upstate NY, the property formerly known as The Rose Garden was purchased.
In May of 1964, with the expertise of Executive Chef John Vosilla Sr. and his wife Katina, the European tradition of serving guests as family began. The Villa Vosilla soon became known as a dining destination, as guests would travel from NYC on a hot summer's day for Sunday Pasta. Guests continue to enjoy our family recipes, that have been handed down from generations, in addition to an irresistible array of innovative dishes at Ladoria Ristorante.
The Villa Vosilla is not a commercial business. Our property has a unique personality and design philosophy with an eclectic balance of old world, vintage and contemporary elements. The resort continues to rejuvenate and redesign while retaining the Italian charm which transports you to a comforting place of relaxation and fun reminiscent of Italy and The Great Northern Catskills. Every treasure has a story.
As a working family owned and operated resort with four generations of experience and customer service, we take pride in providing a personal experience for everyone of our guests. This vacation destination is not just a business; it is our home. It's all about working together and loving what we do. The family continues to do its utmost to welcome you, our guests, to your home away from home. Whatever the season, we wish you precious memories with every visit to the Villa Vosilla. As our historical World's Fair Lights welcome you ~ You know you have arrived.
