Villa Las Artes is quite possibly the most original and stylish villa I’ve set foot in; completely transformed from what used to be a beachside bungalow, it now offers a vast 1500m of the most sophisticated beachside interiors you can find in Marbella. Apart from the sleek, contemporary kitchen, there’s nothing ‘minimalistic’ about this villa; every corner is packed with exquisite details – you almost feel like you’re being given an after-hours personal pass to the Prado!

Your private front garden is the vast Mediterranean Sea
Everything about Villa Las Artes’ secluded private grounds demand attention: a 15-metre, outdoor infinity pool spans a spacious deck where palm trees sway in the breeze; immaculate gardens channel Roman grandeur and Balinese zen; outdoor seating is custom designed and sumptuously upholstered.
And yet, when you step outside the villa your eyes are immediately drawn to one thing: the view. Every angle, every cushy seat, every lavish space opens onto the sparkling expanse of your private front garden: the vast Mediterranean Sea, recessed below the villa’s bluff-top location, its white-capped waves pointing the way to a distant Morocco.
There are dozens of spaces and ways to enjoy this view. Sunbathe in a plush lounger or take cover on the shaded patio; four separate seating and dining areas follow the path of sun and shade throughout the day. Dive into the refreshing depths of your private saltwater pool, its infinity edge seemingly evaporating into the sea below. Stroll through tranquil landscaped gardens, where water features make for a stylish modern nod to ancient Roman aqueducts, their wash-bowl fountains alive with koi and water lilies.
A full outdoor kitchen keeps you supplied with drinks and snacks, and at dusk, your concierge can organise a private chef* to prepare your dinner to the soundtrack of gentle waves lapping at the sand. Enjoy a sundowner in the chill-out area to one end of the pool, then retire to the lounge for drinks. The villa is built for outdoor, sun-splashed living, each space carefully designed to enjoy every moment of the day.

Finally, the heads of the house can also enjoy their own private living quarters within the master suite, which occupies one whole wing of the villa’s first floor.

Why we love it
What our Guests Think
The moment you enter the Villa you know you have arrived somewhere very special, it’s truly breathtaking. The interiors are in keeping with the Spanish style of the Villa and every care has been taken to make it feel luxurious and comfortable.
We celebrated a special family birthday with the family and two young babies who were well catered for. The Villa staff met our every need and for that special occasion we used a Private Chef service, who provided a fabulous dinner party for the 60th birthday celebration and a delicious BBQ later in the week.
The Villa sits in a wonderful location overlooking the ocean and walking distance to bars and restaurants along the beach.
The Villa is perfect if you are looking for that something special and it truly is.
