Villa Kallan is an uber-chic home dedicated to minimalism, modern design and spectacular views.
Floor-to-ceiling glass, a floating staircase, sharp angles and contemporary design welcome you to Villa Kallan: a luxury home as exclusive as it is welcoming.
Villa Kallan has a striking black finish – indoors and out. In contrast, smooth ivory flooring extends throughout the home. Providing the perfect canvas for original artwork, opulent furnishings, bold pops of colour and designer décor, which include: a sofa by Casadesús, Barcelona; lighting by Tom Dixon; hand-blown Czech glass by Brokis; kitchen by Doca with Gaggenau appliances; and outdoor furniture by Talenti.
The Mediterranean is framed by spectacular glass walls – a tonne apiece – which seamlessly connect you to the outdoors. In every instance and every detail, this is a one-of-a-kind villa that will take your breath away, from the moment you arrive.
Villa Kallan sits on the Costa Tropical – a world away from crowded resorts, yet minutes from beaches and an hour from the ski slopes.
It’s clear where Villa Kallan derived its name. You are greeted with a cascading waterfall with rippling Japanese water garden, wrapping around the front door and flowing over the rooftop.
A few more steps, and you’re in the garden – home to a shimmering infinity pool overlooking the azure Mediterranean, sky, bay and sunset.
But Villa Kallan is much more than just these meditative waters.
Its sunshine-loving garden is an explosion of tangled herbs, tropical palms and heat-loving plants. The terrace is fitted out in Talenti seating. Views embrace pine-clad cliffs and inspiring sunsets. Loungers demand lazy afternoon sunbaths. And the bar serves wine at twilight.
This is Spain’s Costa Tropical, where life should be lived outdoors. So, go on, take a stroll through the grounds. And enjoy a tropical feast of pecans, limes, lychees, avocados, lemons, mulberries and figs – ripe for the picking.

Catered to your choosing
If you prefer not to cook, we work with Michelin-grade professional villa chefs who can prepare a range of local or international dishes for you and your guests.
For a taste of authentic Spanish cuisine, ask about our gourmet Spanish menus, Paella demo’s, wine tasting, or book a Tapas tour with our expert foodie tour guides.
Our chefs have also worked with the best Japanese restaurants in Malaga and can create a sushi extravaganza using the freshest Mediterranean seafood and local ingredients.
When you book a villa with The Luxury Villa Collection, our Guest Experience Team will be on hand to help with all your holiday arrangements to ensure a smooth stay.
We are happy to welcome you with a light selection of gourmet delicacies from Spain, compliments of the house.
A complete villa pre-stocking service is available through your housekeeper for a small fee, with goods paid for locally on arrival. They can also stock the bar or bodega for you.
This villa is within easy reach of a whole range of experiences to add to your travel memories. From adrenaline-fuelled paragliding to gourmet wine tasting, private yachts, or even take a trip up to the Sierra Nevada during ski season.
Summer or winter: the views at Villa Kallan always take centre stage. Streaming Spanish sunbeams and the Mediterranean Sea are visible from almost every corner of living space. Framed by dramatic double-height ceilings, a floating designer staircase, and striking glass panels – it’s a panorama that will take your breath away.
The living space is decadent while maintaining function. Plush and deeply comfortable, each piece – including the striking mustard-yellow Casadesús velvet sofa adorning the main living room – features high design that feels as James Bond as it does homely.
Enjoy fine dining with friends and family in the formal indoor dining area. Sitting between the living area and kitchen, this revolves around a custom-made table seating 10+2. The striking black accent wall and Tom Dixon lighting provide the only embellishment needed.
In the kitchen, an informal seating area is anchored by a large wooden table and benches by Talenti.
The kitchen by Doca with Gaggenau appliances is a cook or private chef’s dream. With Teppanyaki, wok, steam oven, microwave, sous-vide drawer, Nespresso machine, and water-bath – all discretely hidden behind the clean lines.
The central cooking island is crafted from a large slab of “burnt” granite. And the rest of the kitchen feature rich brown, designer tiger marble. The pantry, wine fridge and large refrigerator are kept from view in the utility room.
Step into the back garden, where the view unfolds over Mediterranean panoramas, sun-loving gardens, and an elegant 11×4 metre infinity pool.
Winding footpaths meander through grounds scented by herb and fruit trees. But all paths lead back to the pool and sun terrace, outfitted with Italian sofas and sun loungers. A small cocktail bar and outdoor grill complete the scene for relaxed summer living.
Indoors, soft but plush sofas invite you to relax like Bond: James Bond. A decadent home that will delight the senses!

Why we love it
"A beautiful villa with everything you could possibly want. Astonishing view, lovely pool, luxurious rooms, beautiful kitchen with everything and more that you will need, peaceful and close to a town with an authentic Spanish holiday vibe, meaning mainly made up of locals and visiting Spanish families on holiday. There was nothing at all lacking. It was a breathtaking place.
The service from Luxury Villas was fantastic. Attentive (email answered straight away on a Sunday when at Villa) and highly efficient. Communications were clear and informative. I recommend the company and its venture very highly."

Enjoy the local area
Villa Kallan is ideally positioned in a very private spot overlooking the bay of La Herradura. Its approximately 17 minutes walk to the first of several restaurants on the beach ‘Playa de la Herradura’, and about the same distance to the small town centre for a spot of shopping. There is also a short-cut that the manager can show you when you arrive, which gets you there in about 10-15 minutes.
Sandwiched between the Costa del Sol and Costa del Almeria, Costa Tropical is Granada province’s coast. Different in feel to its neighbours, it has a rugged coastline, with scenic coves, jutting rocks and sandy pebble beaches.
Named after its climate, the area is famed for its tropical fruit. With mango and avocado groves carpeting hillsides and villages. This stretch of coastline has a relaxed vibe, in-keeping with Granada’s sense of romance. And the towns are mostly low-rise, sitting aside pristine waters.
From a white village perched on a rock, to unspoilt beaches, to incredible diving and nearby historical cities. There’s plenty for you to see and do in La Herradura. This area is ideal for outdoor pursuits. The diving from La Herradura is excellent. But if scuba diving isn’t your thing, the snorkelling is just as good. A Mecca for cyclists, the region is great for road and mountain biking with routes (and e-bikes!) to suit all abilities.
A trip isn’t complete without a visit to the Alhambra in the city of Granada. When you’re done, head to the Moorish Albayzín district and watch the breath-taking sunset over the honey coloured fort.
Malaga city itself is also worth exploring for its vibrant foodie scene and historical sights like the Gibralfaro and Alcazaba. Its just 50 minutes drive away from the villa.
