Barleta is everything you could want and more from a luxury holiday villa. Sumptuous, spacious and ideally located to take advantage of the exclusive Sotogrande Estate’s wealth of sports and leisure facilities, this remarkable property is a timeless classic designed to offer relaxation, fun and pure indulgence
If you’re looking for a holiday villa with style and class as well as great sports facilities at your fingertips, Barleta is bound to fit the bill perfectly. Luxurious, grand and yet with an extraordinary sense of comfort and hospitality, this exceptional property is set in a prestigious position adjacent to the world famous Valderrama Golf Club on the exclusive Sotogrande Estate.
Enveloped by ancient pine trees, cork oaks and lush tropical palms, the house is wonderfully private and yet boasts magnificent panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and distant mountains. The breathtakingly beautiful gardens, terraces and courtyards are bursting with colourful blooms and fragrant climbers, with a wealth of shady retreats and peaceful sun traps to choose from.
Barleta bears all the hallmarks of classic Spanish architecture, complete with graceful arches, pillars, terracotta tiles and polished wood flooring, complemented by antique and reproduction furnishings, elegant upholstery and an eclectic collection of artwork and trinkets.
Six delightful bedrooms are located on the upper two floors, each individually styled with sumptuous fabrics in a variety of pastel hues. The huge master suite is the pièce de résistance, endlessly romantic with its vast super king bed and filled with light from the French doors along each side. Its stunningly pretty bathroom with elegant twin basins and glamorous Hollywood-style bathtub is designed for pure indulgence.
Also on the first floor is a magnificent lounge, reminiscent of the drawing room of an English country manor with its eye-catching fireplace, lofty ceiling and handsome furnishings. A beautiful marble staircase with wrought iron balustrade leads down to the ground floor where you’ll find the villa’s opulent Arabian-style dining room, cleverly decorated and equipped with creative mood lighting for a fabulous sense of theatre.
The adjacent kitchen is astonishingly contemporary with banks of gleaming stainless steel cabinetry and state-of-the-art appliances that could tempt even the most reluctant cook to try their hand at a hearty breakfast or a delicious gourmet supper.
There’s also a spacious TV lounge on the ground floor with doors opening onto the outside terrace. Here, the lovely heated pool takes pride of place, perfect for cooling down after a spell on the sun lounger or out on the golf course. A superb thatched chiringuito, or covered bar, is located poolside, complete with a gas barbecue and outdoor dining suite for those leisurely alfresco lunches and magical evenings under the stars.
There’s an incredible choice of restaurants and bars both in and around the Sotogrande Resort, not to mention its exceptional spa and outstanding sports facilities. Whether you’re here to immerse yourself in some serious competition with friends or just completely relax in luxurious comfort, Barleta is an excellent choice.
