Not all villas in Spain are created equal. In the rush to be modern and luxurious we often lose sight of what’s charming and traditional. Not so with our Character Collection. Here we’ve singled out a small, unique collection of beautiful villas that showcase the very best of Spanish style and charm.

Most are situated within beautiful landscapes, with magnificent views across rolling countryside or surrounded by mature gardens full of pines and fruit trees. Now you can enjoy a truly authentic stay in Spain.

These villas all have something characteristically Spanish about them; from traditional Cortijos built around an orange-tree courtyard, to antique beamed ceilings and hand-painted tiles, these villas give you a real sense of traditional Andalucia.

We’re adding new villas to the Character Collection all the time.  If you don’t see what you’re looking for, please do make use of our Bespoke Travel Planning Service, we’ll be happy to help you find your ideal villa.
