10 things you should not miss in a luxury villa

The term "luxury villa" is widely used, but what really determines the high status of a house? What elements must be qualified as such? In addition to the facilities of the property, the services it offers are also critical.

Villanovo's team of consultants have all the information to answer these questions, thanks to the years of experience. They know exactly the needs of customers and know how to recognise a luxury home, almost without looking at it.

Here is a list of 10 things that should not be missed in a home to be recognised as an upscale property.

1. Private pool

The pool is one of the star elements and, of course, it must be private. In a home of this kind, privacy is one of the most valuable assets. Taking a bath in privacy and enjoying the environment is one of those little pleasures of life that no one would deny. And if it's an infinity pool, what more can you ask for?

2. Sea views

It is often said that a picture is better than a thousand words and, in fact, it is true. Enjoying the small pleasures of life facing the sea is something that conquers the whole world. Being able to sit on your own deck, look out at the horizon and relax with the sound of breaking waves, is, and will remain, one of those luxuries you do not have to give up.

3. Hammam

If there is one thing that is true, holidays are the perfect time to devote to body care and relaxation. It even seems that in Morocco, they have no doubt about the issue. Therefore, the rented luxury house has a very requested hammam in the country of Arabian Nights. And, it's really an ideal way to disconnect from the world for a few moments.

4. Tennis court

It is clear that the holidays are also conducive to the practice of your favourite sports or, simply, to discover new ones. For this, many of our houses have a tennis court, on which adults and children will have fun for hours.

5. Outdoor areas

Breathe in the fresh air, sit on a deck with family and friends to enjoy a hearty meal, or lie down to read a book under the bright sun, this is priceless. Therefore, a luxury home should have outdoor spaces such as gardens and terraces, from which it is possible to admire the sunset, or have a drink under a blanket of stars.

6. House staff

Who wants to do all the work during the holidays? It is obvious that during the days of rest, doing the tedious household chores is not something that makes you dream. Therefore, having house staff will really give you the time to make the most of your stay in the chosen destination.

A private chef who enchants you with his exquisite local recipes or a driver who transports you to the places you want, it is all possible with Villanovo.

7. Jacuzzi

When hearing the word "jacuzzi", we generally relate it directly to the world of luxury. And this is not a space that most homes have, and maybe that's why it's even more appealing. Taking a bubble bath is an experience you have always wanted to live, isn’t it?

8. Heated pool

As we said, the pool is an essential element. The fact that temperatures are starting to fall does not necessarily go hand in hand with the drop in our desire to swim. Therefore, that your luxury villa has a heated pool is appreciated. There is always time for a swim!

9. Cinema room

It's not something that every home should have, nor the most requested space. However, it is a luxury property that some of our villas have and which, of course, is an advantage. With a room dedicated to the seventh art with a giant screen and accompanied by some freshly made popcorn... what could be better? Plus, it's one of the features that will thrill the little ones in the house.

10. Nanny

There are many people who travel with their children and need them to be looked after all day long. Therefore, the service of a nanny is essential for your children to be safe. Plus, they will have a lot of fun with her and enjoy her company! And from your side, you can rest easily because your children will be in good hands while you are not with them.
