History

The concept and interior design of the first phase of VILLA Boutiques & Restaurants is the leading French architect Didier Gomez, who has been designing stores for Louis Vuitton, Cartier and Yves Saint Laurent for many years, and is also known for designing villas for many movie stars.

Raphael, Barbershop Bradobray, Costa Coffee, premium Mercedez AMG car dealership and much more. ...

VILLA Boutiques & Restaurants today is a unique architectural project of 10 buildings that has shaped a new type of retail space and a new format for shopping and entertainment. The complex is presented in exquisite forms of Renaissance architecture - a classic Tuscan villa with impressive stained glass windows and massive columns. As befits the country houses of the Italian nobility, VILLA Boutiques & Restaurants is located in a picturesque place - surrounded by apple orchards at the foot of the Zailiyskiy Alatau mountains. Due to its location, the complex has a unique microclimate - even in the hottest season, VILLA guests can enjoy a pleasant mountain breeze.

Villa dei Fiori is a fine dining restaurant with exquisite design, bringing Italian cuisine to a whole new level in Kazakhstan. Together with us, each guest will be able to make a unique gastronomic journey and taste the art. From a design point of view, this is a classic restaurant with bright accents in every sense. Romantic imagery, majestic ceilings, monumental shapes and split chandeliers in the French Empire style.

The Peppoli room creates the feeling that you are dining in an authentic Tuscan villa. Special attention in the menu is paid to the centuries-old traditions of culture and cuisine. The wine list is a superb collection of world-class wines, with about a thousand items, including Antinori's stellar wines: Tignanello and Solaia.

From Italian “Villa dei Fiori” is translated as Villa of flowers.

At the central entrance, guests can see a portrait of Catherine de Medici, a magnificent reproduction by an unknown European artist.

Catherine, with her passions, manners and taste, love of art, splendor and luxury, was the main trendsetter throughout Europe. She also left a mark on the culinary history of France: it was thanks to her that the French court discovered the delights of Italian cuisine, including artichokes, broccoli, several varieties of spaghetti and ice cream. Her banquets were known for their splendor. The popularity of ballet in France is also associated with Catherine de Medici, who brought this form of performing arts with her from Italy.
