Welcome to Villa Vivante

A MODERNIST HOMAGE TO the Cadiz Coastline

The pared-back design of Villa Vivante allows the stunning Atlantic views to take centre stage from this 5-bedroom cliff-top villa.

The interiors have been stripped back so the dramatic scenery can be fully appreciated; watch the sun rise in the east, and set in the west, from the 280º panoramic viewing terraces with infinity pool and sea-facing suites.

Natural, earth-toned interiors bring a clear connection and respect for the natural scenery, while interior elements, such as clay tiles, oak floors, concrete and sandstone walls are complemented by mid-century style and furnishings.

Villa Vivante is all about harmonious living with earth and ocean.


The villa is accessed via a private funicular lift from the garage, and as you ascend, you start to understand how spectacular the setting of Villa Vivante is; discreet and private, thanks to its elevated position between two of the best beaches in Cadiz.

Set over two floors, every room opens to a viewing balcony or terrace and the main living-dining area features wall-to-wall glass windows which open to a cliff-edge balustrade balcony.

The chef’s kitchen has enough cook space and everything you need for a culinary adventure, including a bodega filled with wine, cava, organic oil and vinegar.

All the bedrooms have ocean view private terraces, super-king-size beds and you’ll find a water stocked mini bar in three guest rooms.

Although Villa Vivante is perfectly placed to explore the Costa de la Luz, for those days when you want to stay indoors there is a well-equipped fitness room and a movie/reading snug to enjoy.


Set on a headland, the outdoor space is expertly carved into the rock face, with sheer drops which give you the sensation of hovering above the ocean and bring a touch of adventure and ‘life’ to Villa Vivante.

The Atlantic coastline will certainly cast its spell on you here, with terraces on every level giving 280º degree views of the coastline, with wild virgin stretches of white sandy beaches and undulating countryside.

Swim up to the edge of infinity pool as it meets the ocean horizon. The summer dining terrace by the pool seats six guests, and from here, there’s no better place to watch the incredible sunset with a pre-dinner aperitif.

The interior dining room next to the pool forms part of the main living area, furnished with a fine marble table with seating for eight guests. Outdoor meals can be taken around a six seater dining table situated next to the pool.

With mesmerising views from every window and terrace, choosing where to relax at Villa Vivante isn’t a problem.

The reading chair and foot stool in the main living room are perfectly positioned for you to relax and enjoy the dramatic Atlantic view. The reading room brings a touch of leather cushioned comfort: a place for a solitary reading hour or snuggling up with your family to watch an evening movie, and each bedroom suite features a private terrace.

The fitness room is perfect for a spot of sunrise Yoga, while outside, you can float to the edge of the Atlantic in the ocean-view infinity pool. Where will you go? Over to Tangiers in Morocco, to Malta or all the way across to the US?

Enjoy the local area

If you want to discover the authentic personality of Andalucía: to admire its natural beauty, savour the region’s exquisite gastronomy and understand the passion and pride for the region that every Andaluz wears on their sleeve, Cadiz delivers on all levels.

From white villages to endless beaches, Cadiz is the best kept secret in southern Spain and Villa Vivante enjoys the perfect location to discover everything it has to offer.

Situated in Urbanisation Atlanterra on the border between Tarifa and Zahara de los Atunes on the Costa de la Luz, Villa Vivante enjoys an almost equidistant position between the Cadiz-Malaga border to the east, and magnificent Cadiz city to the west.

There are a smattering of hotels, restaurants and mini supermarkets in Atlanterra itself, however you’ll want to head to Zahara de los Atunes (9 mins) for a better selection of amenities.

Zahara de los Atunes is a family friendly destination renowned for unspoilt beaches, laid-back atmosphere and as its name suggests (Sahara of the Tuna), the famous Almadraba Red Tuna (Ruta del Atun).

Where, neighbouring Tarifa is renowned for its bohemian vibe and eclectic nightlife, Zahara de los Atunes has taken a step back, choosing a more subtle approach to life which is more seasonal in nature. The town is petite but well-populated in summer with restaurants (in town and on the beach), cafes and bars.

If beach days are an essential part of your holiday, Villa Vivante and the Costa de la Luz won’t disappoint. The villa overlooks two unspoilt beaches – Playa de los Alemanes to the east, and Cabo de Plata to the west.

Whilst Playa de los Alemanes is almost virgin-like with few visitors; Cabo de Plata which merges with Playa Atlanterra and onto Playa de Zahara is a popular water sports beach and has a couple of good beach restaurants dotted along the way.  The nearest access from Villa Vivante is across the road and down the steps, or you can take a flatter route, walking along the roadside pavement and cutting across a pathway system adjacent to the beach to reach Zahara.

The Costa de la Luz, or Costa de Cadiz at it is also known, is famous for its Californian-esque beaches, and you’ll be able to visit quite a few within a 30-45 minute drive.

Our Cadiz destination guide gives you a taste of what to expect during your visit to the region. From its most splendid beaches and famous Moorish whitewashed towns, such as Vejer de la Frontera; to its love affair with Jerez (sherry) and spectacular beauty and rural charm.

The nearest airports to Villa Vivante are Gibraltar International Airport at 86kms (1hr 29 mins) and Jerez Airport at 105kms (1hr 22 mins).
