Villa Historical Front

History of the Villa

The Villa Chanticleer's colorful history began in 1910 when it was established as a gathering place for San Francisco's French elite. As many as 200 people would take the horse and buggy ride up the hill to the resort, which at that time consisted of a screened dining pavilion and numerous vacation cabins. The Villa enjoyed a widespread reputation as an exclusive vacation resort until the 40's when it was rumored to have fallen into the hands of shady underworld figures.
