Welcome to Villa Sonata


Although unassuming from the outside, step inside and Villa Sonata wraps you in tasteful, refined design richly decorated with bold prints, large rugs and wall treatments. Warm tones, natural materials and a careful mix of antique and modern pieces imbue it with colour and character.

The open plan kitchen, living and dining area is an intimate gathering space that opens both onto the pool terrace and the entry courtyard, from which one can see across the golf course and down to the sea. Thick curtains, padded headboards and bright cushions in the bedrooms combine to create a sense of indulgence while the hotel-style bathrooms are pure luxe.

Set into a south-facing hillside, the villa itself is on a single level with a shaded patio separating the main house from the guest annexe, ensuring plenty of privacy when needed. A sunny terrace with a dramatic infinity pool, equipped with seating and sun beds overlooking the fairway, are on the same level.

With an additional 1800 m2 of verdant gardens on various levels, there’s ample space to spread out and enjoy the blue skies and quiet location. Wander down from the pool and you’ll find a kitchen garden where you can pick fresh fruits straight from the trees, and below that, a summer kitchen and barbecue with a shaded outdoor dining area for meals under the sun or stars.
