Between Gibraltar and Malaga, Villa Barbesula is reminiscent of a Roman enclave along the Costa del Sol. Amidst walnut and pine trees, enjoy a taste of peace—Italian style—nearby the vivacious lifestyle of Marbella and its world famous beaches. Prince Alfonso von Hohenlohe, a Gatsby of modern times, called this part of Spain “a little piece of heaven on Earth.”
Rivalling Olympus, Villa Barbesula is a haven of indulgence and satisfaction. Anchored in a 1,400-square-metre green paradise, the villa unfolds like a Hispanic ode to the architecture of Caesar’s country. The villa nearly flanks La Concha, the highest mountain in the region. This fantastic sight reveals itself at the outdoor swimming pool, plunging into the wild nature of the mountains and Alboran Sea, and the charming countryside around Marbella whose etymology, “mountain with plenty of water,” echoes the spirit of the villa.
The interior, a clean white, 440-square-metre paradise, lends itself to complete relaxation. The luxurious and refined living room prizes Italian design in its precision of lines and comfort. The dining room is an epicurean haven for any time weather prevents outdoor dining on the terrace.
The 4 bedrooms, each with private bathroom, are named after the mythological pantheon, symbolizing the allegory of serenity. Again, the furniture fits perfectly with the angelic atmosphere that overtakes the villa. Mens sana in corpore sano: Villa Barbesula is equipped with a real spa, and for sport lovers, the property is located right next to a golf course.
