A very historic home from the early days of Puerto Vallarta, designed in the traditional hacienda style, with all rooms opening onto a large central courtyard with heated pool and gardens. Kitchen and baths are modernized while retaining the integrity of the original architecture. Vintage handmade tiles and hardwoods are found throughout.
The decor is artistic and chic, antiques and unique period pieces are mixed with imported furnishings and original paintings by famous artists, all set against large palms and dramatic lighting. The ambience at night is often described as “magical”.
The original owner was a famous clothing designer and close friends with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Villa Leonarda was a celebrity hangout during the 1960s and the mystique lives on, it is still a gathering place for artists, writers, movie stars and intellectuals. Angelica Huston and brother, Danny Huston, have attended VIP cocktails hosted at the villa for the Puerto Vallarta Film Festival, following in the footsteps of their famous director father, who used to play poker with friends around the pool. Internationally acclaimed artist Alejandro Colunga and photographer Gabriel Figueroa, Jr. are also frequent guests at the villa.
