Masseria Torre Pinta
What was once a 17th century home of a Maltese Knight, has been lovingly restored and renovated into a beautiful villa for up to eight guests, that is steeped in history.
With panoramic views over the surrounding silvering olive groves all the way to the shores of the Adriatic, Masseria Torre Pinta offers guests peace and seclusion, paired with the feeling of being on top of the world.
The Master Suite offers one of the best views in the house, while the upper terrace is ideal for al fresco relaxation overlooking the surrounding countryside.
In a picture-postcard worthy setting, La Sassicaia offers guests an enviable location amidst the rolling hills of Tuscany, with breathtaking views that are hard to beat.
Wonderfully spacious bedrooms feature panoramic windows for waking up to enjoy the view from the comfort of your bed or make use of one of the cleverly positioned desks to write, draw or work remotely while admiring the surrounding landscape.
Outside a sizeable terrace is perfectly positioned to admire the rolling vistas, as is the large private pool…bliss.
Resting on the rocks just above the water in the beautiful bay of the same name, sits Apraos Studio. This delightfully cosy villa for two couldn’t be closer to the water’s edge, with far-reaching views across the bay and out to sea.
Wake up to the soundtrack of gentle waves lapping against the shore and enjoy your breakfast al fresco on the charming little terrace while gazing out to sea.
A few steps down from the villa lead straight to the water and a small private bathing area.
Location: Sri Lanka
Carved into the hillside on Sri Lanka’s blissful south coast, Tamarind Sands overlooks a glistening white sandy bay below. Ocean view bedrooms provide an air of calm as you wake up in the morning, while the heavenly infinity pool looks across the lawned gardens and straight out to sea.
There is a beautiful open air yoga and Ayurveda studio, which is perfect for a relaxing villa retreat. Alongside the services of a wonderful cook, the Villa Manager at Tamarind Sands is also a mixologist, so you can end relaxing days sipping cocktails on the rooftop while watching the sunset.
Domaine de Bagatelle
Set within a vast 175 acres of woodland, from its privileged hilltop position Domaine de Bagatelle enjoys far reaching vistas across a sea of green.
The villa itself comprises an 18th century Maison de Maitre and a 19th Century hunting lodge, with opulent interiors and elegant furnishings throughout.
Elsewhere within the peaceful grounds, guests can relax in the heated swimming pool, take a turn around the walled gardens or simply sit back and allow the view to speak for itself.
Location: St Lucia
With enviable views of the prominent Pitons, La Bagatelle is located in a desirable spot on St Lucia’s west coast. The inviting private pool overlooks the shimmering sea below, while the covered terrace - complete with hammock and four-poster daybed is the perfect spot to watch the sunset.
Cook service is included for ultimate indulgence, which means guests can spend the utmost time admiring their naturally beautiful surroundings.
Upper Mantin is a modern and exceptionally elegant villa, boasting the most fabulous open views down to the glittering north east coastline of Corfu.
The staggering 20m long infinity pool wraps around the terrace, while the timber deck adorned with comfortable loungers and parasols feels like your own private viewing platform of the tranquil Ionian Sea below.
Casa della Collina
Casa della Collina is a beautiful house that is full of character. Set within 17 hectares of olive terraces and gardens, this villa offers amazing views from every window!
Friends and families alike can enjoy an evening of pizza making using the villa’s traditional pizza oven, to be enjoyed out on the terrace with sweeping valley views.
This villa is ideally located for hiking, cycling and visiting nearby vineyards for wine tasting, and if you choose to add cook service to your stay you can expect to enjoy only the finest Tuscan dishes such as freshly made orchiete with cherry tomatoes and risotto arancini.
Villa Kayra sits in a privileged position high on a hillside overlooking the breathtaking bay of Kalkan. Designed to admire the views, every room has floor to ceiling windows flooding the villa with light; we particularly love how each of the beds are positioned to wake up to see the sea.
Out on the terrace there is a dedicated area for al fresco dining that’s served by a built-in bbq, a shaded pergola and a poolside bar. The pièce de résistance is the epic infinity pool with built-in Jacuzzi, seemingly merging into the Med.
