Our History

Almost 60 years ago, the Villa Roma was owned by a man named Ernesto Vindigni.  The resort was no larger than a quaint boarding house with 46 hotel rooms, 10 cottages, a pool and two bocce courts. Days began with home-cooked meals and were spent relaxing.  However, that was before Marty Passante came along. While bow hunting in October of 1969, Mr. Martin Passante came across the Villa Roma and noticed the “for sale” sign.  After much consideration, Marty convinced his two friends, Albert Aprea, and Danny Vaccaro, to partner with him on the purchase of the resort property.  They sold everything they owned on Long Island, NY and moved upstate to the small country town of Callicoon, NY.  The sale became final in December of 1969, and after a couple of years, Marty became the sole owner and the Villa Roma has never been the same since!

By 1973 Marty’s dream was becoming a reality; they began constructing the Lobby and the Futura wing, keeping the hotel seasonal until 1977.  Construction of more rooms began along with the Club Forum, which would accommodate 800 guests.  While all of this was going on, Marty was busy coordinating marketing strategies that would bring guests to the resort all year long.  Villa Roma kept growing.  Before long, there was racquetball courts, the Ernesto (named after the original owner), and the Indoor Sports Complex in 1982.  In 1983, Villa Roma built the ski area, followed by our 18-hole PGA golf course and timeshare units.  The timeshares allowed for returning guests to purchase a unit for one or multiple weeks a year, for a lease term of 99 years—this idea was brilliant!  It raised money for new construction and put Villa Roma onto the map.

Today the Villa Roma is strongly positioned as one of the leading businesses in our community. It provides employment for over 400 full-time employees and serves over 200,000 guests a year. We now have 24 timeshare buildings, 139 hotel rooms, 18 Hole PGA Championship golf course, Indoor and/or outdoor tennis, racquetball, volleyball, bocce, shuffleboard, basketball, Indoor & outdoor heated pools, Fun Park, Fishing pond, Go-Carts, Bumper Boats, Arcade room, Bowling alley, Fitness center, Nightly entertainment, 3 year-round dining outlets, and so much more! The Villa Roma stays committed to providing the best possible hospitality experience by always putting the needs of our guests first through impeccable service, outstanding facilities, and amenities, clean modern accommodations in conjunction with our tradition of warm hospitality.

  • 4 star ratingRelaxing I planned a weekend getaway for my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary. They love the 50's and 60's theme of course. It was great we went in the month of November for the 50's weekend. They had a blast. Everything was centered around that era. Food was delicious and they made a special cake for them.

  • 5 star ratingPleasantly surprised We are time share owners at Villa Roma, but had exchanged through the years and had not been back in some time.

    While most time shares have discontinued daily maid service, this is not the case at Villa Roma. Their shuttle service from the units to the Clubhouse always arrived promptly, upon request. They also have entertainment nightly.

    The resort has golf, racquetball, indoor and outdoor pools, tennis courts, a bowling alley. There is a full schedule of activities every day.

    There were two venues for meals. One was the coffee shop, which served breakfast, lunch and dinner. The other was the dining room. We only ate in the dining room one night. The food was very good. We just didn't think a five course meal every night would be good for us. We ate in the coffee shop several times.

    Nearby, there are two excellent restaurants. Peppino's in Callicoon, which has wonderful pizza, sandwiches, entrees and desserts. It also has a full bar.

    On Rt. 17B in White Lake, we discovered Off the Hook. Best lobster rolls we ever had, served with waffle fries and coleslaw.

    We had a wonderful time!

  • 5 star ratingSo happy I can’t tell you how much fun my family had at Villa Roma. This summer. The people that work there are the nicest. Because we went for the kids that is very important. The girls at the bounce house have so much patience with kids and are so nice to them and of course very helpful. The maid service was so great. Donna was so nice and did everything to make us comfortable I also felt very safe , one of my grandkids is 12 and I was happy to let him do things on his own My other grandson was crying when we left he wanted to live there. In my opinion the men and women who drive the buses are one of the main reasons Villa Roma is the place to go for a family vacation. They are caring and so polite.

    Thank you so much everyone you made my grandkids have a great end to the summer.

  • 4 star ratingGood Time We visited Villa Roma last week for three nights. Family had a fun time. Was happily surprised that our room was ready when we arrived at 1:30. Lisa at the front desk was great and answered all of my may questions. Our room was spacious and clean. Dining was good - servers were personable and provided a nice experience. Pool was nice and the area was clean. However, we wished that they would announce when activities were starting. Kids indoor play gym was great, but it kind of freaked me out that they did not require children to wear socks. Good time had by all.

  • 5 star ratingBest time ever! Start to finish this place was wonderful for a group of 7 girls for weekend getaway! The apartment was clean and modern, and the beds were very comfortable. The time share staff were friendly, personable, courteous, and tremendously helpful. The resort offered a lot of day time and night time activities for all interests and ages. The nightly entertainment was terrific and DJ Spinn kept the party going all night. The resort is beautiful and nestled in the Catskills- beautiful areas all around. I can't say enough good things about my time there. Highly recommended for friends, couples, and families- there's something for everyone. We will definitely be back next summer!
