A Glimpse into Hollywood History
Built by a silent screen matinee idol and his Ziegfield Follies dancer wife, Villa Altamira was purposefully located just a few blocks from downtown and the famous El Mirador resort in Palm Springs, a public playground of Hollywood celebrities. To achieve a balance between social activities and privacy, stars built their own Palm Springs vacation homes in the acres surrounding the former El Mirador resort and the Movie Colony was born. Maps are available for neighborhood walking tours.
Spacious Living Quarters
The villa's ample space and five bedrooms make an excellent Palm Springs vacation retreat for planning sessions and vacations. Along with its pool, a media room, billiards table, and gourmet kitchen, Villa Altamira offers guests a touch of elegant naturalness.
Palm Springs Dining & Entertainment Options
Within a few minutes walk are some of the best restaurants in Palm Springs, art galleries, design stores, and entertainment. Although you may not want to venture beyond the gates of this private estate, this house is only a few blocks away from the SPA casino, a Las Vegas style casino in the heart of Palm Springs, and near the beautiful Ruth Hardy Park.
A very short drive away are some of the most beautiful natural desert areas in North America, including a real oasis and old palm groves just minutes from downtown. Whether you wish to gaze at the changing light on the mountains, listen to the breeze in the palms, or hike to natural waterfalls, there is natural serenity at Villa Altamira that you will treasure.
Rent the villa is for short-term vacation rental, honeymoons, reunions and conference groups, or important family gatherings.
