A BOLD WHITE-ON-WHITE DESIGN VISION
Villa Talaia is not somewhere that does things by halves. A huge, ultra-luxury design villa in the exclusive Cascada de Camojan neighbourhood of Marbella, it’s a dazzling design-led vision – both inside and out.
Where it really triumphs, though, is in the way it marries aesthetics and comfort. Not content with simply being big, bold and beautiful, it doubles down on the luxury front.
The high-end facilities are piled on to the length and breadth of the 5,000m2 plot – think gyms, outdoor and indoor pools, fully equipped music rooms, outdoor cinema areas, rooftop Jacuzzis, outdoor bar/kitchen areas.
The bare bones of the place are certainly impressive – with one large, light-filled space running into another.
The steady interior design hand of Pedro Peña can be clearly felt, too. The feel in the 8 bedrooms is of textural contrasts: soft shag rugs, faux fur blankets, cushions and headboards are offset by harder-edged glittering glass and metal in the form of side tables, mirrors, hanging glass droplet sidelights or in the sleek, clean-lined modern bathrooms.
Contrast creeps into the colour scheme, too, with calming, neutral creams, taupes are broken up by accent notes – a glittering gold table here, a deep teal tub chair there.
Art has a major role to play here. There are striking, brightly coloured modern paintings adorning the walls, while other carefully chosen pieces are dotted around, from Native American headdresses in the large sitting room to buffalo skulls in the indoor bar area and huge retro movie lighting in the private gym.
It is, it’s fair to say, quite a place.
SPACE TO SPARE – AND BEAUTIFUL VIEWS IN EVERY DIRECTION
In Villa Talaia renowned local architect Javier Martinez Garcia has delivered a striking vision of a luxurious designer pad. Sleek, bold and angular, it stands out as a dazzling block of white against those blue, blue Spanish skies.
The outdoor spaces and gardens here are a fully integrated part of the overall vision. Even the main outdoor pool – so often an ugly, merely functional add-on to a luxury villa – is a coherent aesthetic element in its own right, a pleasingly rectangular form alongside the house.
A major feature of Villa Talaia is just how committed it is to providing space for its guests to relax and spend time together outdoors.
First up, immediately in front of the villa by the pool, there’s a low, casual seating area under a shaded, modern pergola. Alongside it, there’s a covered pool bar with more low seating and a shaded dining area.
A minimalist water feature bisects the layered concrete, running down the steps and across a lawned area to a pond with a striking sculpture at its heart. As you follow it down the garden there’s a further brace of shady seating/dining areas.
The location here is stellar. And the villa has certainly been designed to make the most of it. The front-facing bedrooms open out onto long, lounger-lined terraces, while at the top of it all, crowning the villa, is a rooftop kitchen/bar area and Jacuzzi. From here you can see the pine-covered hills rising up to La Concha mountain; below, the views stretch away down to the sea.
