Welcome to Villa Vivaldi

Traditional and elegant interiors with a contemporary twist

A grand entrance opens onto the vaulted-ceiling hallway, where a teak staircase winds toward the upper-level balcony. An oversized living room, festooned with fine art and elegant sculpture, welcomes with plush sofas and armchairs. Sun pours in through every window.

And yet, as elegant as are Villa Vivaldi’s interiors, your first impression is of the view.

From the villa’s perch above the coast, the landscape sweeps down the Costa del Sol and the Golden Mile, tumbling headfirst into the sea. From this elevation, the sparkling Mediterranean seems as if it were created for your eyes alone: framed by every French door, balcony, terrace and window, the endless sea is the complementary blue to Villa Vivaldi’s elegant creams, muted taupes, and soft browns.

The villa’s owner is a collector of fine art, as evidenced by the wonderful antiques, modern sculpture, precious paintings, and other fine pieces that share the living space. Almost every corner of the villa offers something to admire, from crystal decanters and a Helmut Newton’s SUMO limited-edition collectors piece, to original 17th century artwork and a massive mother-of-pearl planter overflowing with tropical plantings.

At times evoking the traditions of Andalucí­a, and at others exuding a wholly modern ambiance, Villa Vivaldi feels like a lived-in, supremely comfortable and yet still refined art museum. It is an elegant space of fine tastes and everyday comforts, minutes to the sea but miles from the ordinary.

Vibrant gardens, a Roman-style pool and Marbella’s finest surroundings

The Spanish sun splashes colourful, tropical gardens and dense woodland, which surround a private 17x7m pool and private pergola with Argentine BBQ.

A sun-dappled Andaluz patio and burbling Roman fountain welcome you to the wooded, one-acre lot, which houses an airy villa of 800 spacious square metres (8,600 square feet). Ancient olive and orange trees, their branches often laden with fruit, overhang the patio, joining lush gardens of tropical plants, including flowering bougainvillea and towering palms.

From the sparkling pool to the well-manicured grounds, Villa Vivaldi radiates luxury from every corner; and yet again, the views are what draws the eye. From outdoors, the villa’s Mediterranean vistas are even more spectacular: the luminous coastline and sunlit sea are larger than life 180º of the most magnificent views in all of Andalusia.

Villa Vivaldi is dedicated to refined relaxation; to afternoons in the refreshing pool, alternately swimming and sunning, always to the backdrop of a spectacular view; to evenings in the hot-tub, a full glass of Spanish wine in hand; to days spent on the outdoor patio, while the children splash in the pool or enjoy the dedicated play area. To refined indulgence and elegant luxuries. To the sun-splashed life of southern Spain.

Situated around 30 minutes away on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, Marbella is a resort known widely for it’s glitz and glamour, but for those to choose to explore the area you will find plenty of Spanish charm, culture and character in San Pedro which is a located closer to La Zagaleta.
