Welcome to Villa Shiro

Villa Shiro is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece with a front-row view in La Zagaleta.

Here, you step into a world bathed in white: white, for the vast swaths of white marble that frame blue skies and bluer seas. White, for cream-and-ivory colour palettes that contrast with vibrant art and designer furnishings. White, for the illuminating flashes of sunlight that glint off a sparkling pool and dapple lush gardens.

White, and yet not just white. For Villa Shiro – named after the Japanese word for “white” – is the white of brilliant sunlight: not colourless, but rather composed of every colour in the spectrum.

White and grey, for the marble that unrolls at your feet. Black, for the Asian-inspired lacquer and prints that grace the home. And then, every colour in between, to represent the myriad shades and hues of Villa Shiro: saffron walls and red bar stools, jade onyx tiles and purple sunsets, gilded staircases and ochre rugs. And, of course, the green of the landscape and the blues of the cobalt sky, the turquoise sea, and the cerulean pool.

Villa Shiro is a kaleidoscope of luxuries – a home as unique, as lavish, and as vibrant as the rainbow.

Enter a world of lavish detailing and opulent luxuries:

Villa Shiro, a home as extravagantly apart from its neighbours, as its neighbours are from the rest of the world.

Villa Shiro is a home built to impress, with vast slabs of marble flooring and panoramic windows, Asian influences and valuable artefacts, designer lighting and stylish furnishings. Every room here is a gallery, with many pieces to draw the eye: A fountain in the entry and a chandelier in the stairway, an ancient Chinese statue in the living room and an art piece in the master.

Villa Shiro stands a home beyond the abilities of mere photography or words: a true and elaborate showpiece, designed as much to impress as it is to invite. Embracing its natural surrounds, the home pulls from the Costa del Sol to impress with stone columns and graceful archways, crown-moulding and coffered ceilings, tiled walls and marble floors that are both timeless and elegant.

Villa Shiro is evidence of thoughtful vision, of the master craft that is both architecture and design. It is a love letter to the Andalusian countryside and sparkling Marbella, to Eastern influences and a luxury lifestyle. It is your welcoming to the Costa del Sol.

Rising like a white beacon amidst lush greenery, Villa Shiro welcomes guests to the lavish Costa del Sol, playground of the Spanish rich and famous.

As you wind through the verdant hills above Marbella, your first glimpse is of Villa Shiro: a white flare of Spanish Colonial architecture, set against the lush backdrop of La Zagaleta, one of the Costa del Sol’s most exclusive communities.

Impressive as it may be, that first glimpse is but a ripple on the home’s luxurious surface. Villa Shiro, between rolling hillsides and the Mediterranean Sea, is a study in outdoor enjoyments: Expansive terraces with cosy seating, immaculate gardens and lush landscaping, a colour-dappled poolside terrace, and sun loungers to ring the expansive infinity pool.

And then, those views – a feature beyond luxury, beyond opulence, beyond the influence of man. This is Mother Nature’s own art and here it is on full display, in spectacular panoramas that encircle Villa Shiro, gracing the home with some of Marbella’s most striking Mediterranean and mountain vistas.

La Zagaleta is uniquely private and secluded, offering some of the area’s most magnificent views and landscapes, yet you are just half an hour from Puerto Banus (18km) and an hour to the stunning town of Ronda. La Zagaleta is a privately owned and managed estate, where your personal privacy is assured, making this the destination of choice for dignitaries and VIPs.
