This elegant villa seals the Casa de Campo’s deal by placing a private par-3 hole amid its own, giant garden. Should golf not be your bag, fear not: the surrounding, 7,000-acre resort also offers tennis, polo, horse-riding, clay-pigeon shooting and various watersports on its private white-sand beach, not to mention a spa, fitness classes, yacht rentals and excursions to castaway islands. Travel around in your devoted golf buggy.
All of which awaits only if guests can resist this villa’s other outdoor spaces. Supported by an al fresco kitchen, these are headlined by the infinity-pool deck and an adjoining hot tub. Three separate gazebos enable dining or lounging, perhaps using the barbecue, and shaded terraces connect fluidly to the villa’s expansive main lounge.
Inside there you’ll find marbled walls and high, airy cathedral ceilings. Close by are two dining rooms and another pair of kitchens for use by your chef. A butler and housekeeper are also provided, the latter ready to tidy up all six warmly-decorated bedrooms – among which is one with bunk beds and the master suite, whose own hot tub enables romantic stargazing. There’s a TV room, too, plus a pool table and a sensational wine cellar ready to fuel celebratory evenings.
