A gym, a fire pit and a private bar...
Villa Balbina is a superb property with a number of excellent features that makes it entirely unique. Luxurious amenities include but are not limited to a fully-equipped gym, a trampoline, a hammock and a fire pit, though one of our favourite parts has to be the beer on tap in the bar! Of course there is also an infinity pool and Jacuzzi and to top it all off, this villa has direct access to a sandy beach; no wonder it’s one of our most popular houses in Portugal!

Balinese architecture in The Caribbean...
Java Bay in Barbados brings Balinese architecture to the Caribbean.

There’s a nearby beach within walking distance and we just love the outdoor bath tubs and rainfall showers.

A beach entry pool...
A truly outstanding Trulli! Trulli Fiori ticks all the boxes for a private luxury retreat in Puglia. The unique beach entry pool, designed to resemble the seashore has to be our favourite feature, though we’re equally happy about the exceptional outdoor living areas, the built-in barbecue and the gorgeous contemporary interiors.
Private beach access with a wooden cabin...
A coastal gem in the heart of Tuscany, Bolgheri Beach House sits within beautiful lawned gardens with a sizeable pool. Pass the pool and head through the pine trees towards a gate at the end of the garden. Follow the path and you’ll arrive at a superb sandy beach where guests can enjoy a private cabin with beach furniture.
A gym, yoga studio, bar and a pottery workshop...
Montana del Aguila is a magnificent house with sublime panoramic views over the countryside in Menorca. Unique features include a fabulous bar, a gym/yoga studio, a pottery workshop with wheel, a 25 metre long pool with poolside cabanas and some truly exquisite pieces of bespoke and designer furniture. What’s more, chef service is included between June and September, ideal for a special celebration.
The vision of a noted hotelier and interior designer...
Designed by the same architects who built the new Yves Saint Laurent museum, it’s no surprise Villa Mabrouka is so visually impressive. Located just outside of Essaouira with a sandy beach nearby, the villa is filled with striking artwork and exquisitely furnished. There is a superb outdoor pool and al fresco dining area, while the terrace also doubles up as a kind of observatory for guests to enjoy dinner under the stars.
Incredible landscaped gardens
A superb house in Dubrovnik with serene sea views, The Ragusa Estate is very impressive. The lovely landscaped gardens feature a fantastic pool and a little coffee house, along with plenty of spots for reading and relaxing. Cook service is included, as is a skippered motor yacht and how could we forget the glass-topped baby grand piano!
