Introducing: Palazzo Vilòn, Rome

The new Palazzo Vilòn in Rome is housed within the historical building of Palazzo Borghese and occupies the entire south-west wing, as an extension of Hotel Vilòn, part of the Shedir Collection.

Palazzo Borghese is the ideal base for couples and families, heads of state and VIPs, with a prime location near the Spanish Steps. Besides the two parts annexed by Shedir Collection, the Palazzo is still mostly owned and occupied by the Borghese family. The current Borghese heir, Scipione, lives on the floors directly above Palazzo Vilòn.

Original architectural and baroque design features have been restored by Giampiero Panepinto and his team to create a setting that is true to the period. Entering the space, two gateways are flanked by columns and a balcony on either side of the main façade’s three levels, which have two mezzanines placed between them. A glimpse of the courtyard—at the center stage of Palazzo Vilòn—and one of the wall fountains in the garden beyond is visible through the gate on the Piazza Fontanella Borghese.

Palazzo Vilòn

Palazzo Vilòn guests will be offered butler service, a private chef on call, access to a Privamene Club for late-night parties or cinema experiences, and more. The property will be accessible through two entrances—the main one on Via di Ripetta and a secluded one, adjacent to the Spanish Embassy, allowing for private check-ins. The secluded property offers four bedrooms, all equipped with an en-suite bathroom, as well as a living room and dining room, a private spa with a sauna and Turkish bath, a private pool, gym, professional kitchen and private garden space.

One highlight of the property is the Galleria degli Specchi, known as the Mirror Room, which has stucco-framed mirrors overpainted with cherubim. The flooring also stands out through the inlaid marble mosaic, composed of Carrara marble, statuary marble, bardiglio marble, marquina marble, Siena yellow marble and Medicean breccia marble.

Palazzo Vilòn is exclusively available for full buyouts.
