Set 150 metres from the beach and boasting its own, heated outdoor swimming pool, Villa de Sable is a luxurious property, perfect for celebrations, family holidays or getaways with friends. 

The main property sleeps 10 guests across five attractive bedrooms, each one stylishly furnished, with tasteful colour scheme. Three of the bedrooms are en-suite and two bedrooms in the east wing share a shower room. A small guest house with independent entrance sleeps a further four guests across two rooms with a shared shower room, bringing the total to 14. The guest house has its own stylish lounge with picture windows opening out onto the pool terrace.

The living areas are sublime. Sunlight floods in to the lounge through the sliding glass doors which lead out onto the decked terrace and swimming pool. With wooden floor, panelled ceiling, sumptuous sofas and remarkable floating woodburner, it is a welcoming and relaxing space for all your guests to gather and enjoy time together. Each lamp, table, ornament and sculpture has been carefully selected to contribute to the eclectic, journey-inspired feel.

Through the double doors just off the lounge is a further seating area, with large sofa and television. Decorated in calming grey and mustard yellow with splashes of geometric colour this room is a relaxing space to spend an evening.

The stunning, open-plan kitchen-diner adjoins the main lounge area, enjoying the same garden views and showcasing a sleek wood and monochrome colour scheme which wouldn’t look amiss among the pages of a stylish home magazine. Suspended lamps hang above the heavy wooden dining table with seating for 12, where guests can enjoy a delicious meal cooked up in the well-equipped kitchen which makes food preparation a pleasure.

During the warmer months, make the most of the beautiful garden by cooking and dining in the summer kitchen which features a BBQ, sink, preparation area and a large sheltered dining table overlooking the pool. To complete the al-fresco experience, there are chairs and tables and a comfortable outdoor lounge area on the attractive teak decking where you can relax to the sound of the breeze rustling the ornamental grasses with the enticing blue water of the swimming pool just steps away.
