If you like to truly relax on your luxury holiday and escape from the hustle and bustle of your busy life, take a look through our collection of luxury villas in the country.
We have been scouring the hills and cherry-picking the best luxury villas to add to our collection, one stunning property at a time.
If you are thinking of a luxury ‘mas’ in Provence in France, or a lovingly restored farmhouse in Tuscany or Umbria in Italy, or maybe a grand and luxurious waterfront residence on the shores of Lake Como, we have some real gems for you.
Oozing character and charm and surrounded by the gently chirp of the cicades, our luxury villas in the country are the perfect places to escape and relax.
Nestled amidst the picturesque landscapes of Tuscany, the Argentaia Estate is a remarkable luxury villa that was once a sacred monastery. This historic transformation has created an enchanting retreat that seamlessly blends the ancient charm of the monastery with contemporary opulence. The centerpiece of this magnificent estate is the awe-inspiring 32-meter saltwater infinity swimming pool, providing an oasis of tranquility with its crystal-clear waters against a backdrop of rolling green hills. From the pool deck, you can soak in the panoramic vistas of the Tuscan countryside, a scene that seems straight out of a postcard.
Spanning an expansive estate of eighty hectares, the Argentaia Estate features a harmonious blend of vineyards, olive groves, lush forests, and grazing land. It’s a haven for nature enthusiasts and wine connoisseurs alike. Additionally, the estate offers a range of exquisite amenities, including a spa area with a luxurious hot tub for relaxation, a cinema room for entertainment, and a tennis court for those seeking a sporty diversion. For the wine aficionado, the stone-vaulted wine cellars offer the perfect setting to explore and savor the finest vintages, immersing you in the rich winemaking traditions of the region. This remarkable estate not only celebrates Tuscany’s heritage but also offers an unforgettable blend of luxury and natural beauty for a truly magical Italian escape.
In the south of Corsica, with views to die for, Domaine de la Trinité encapsulates serenity and decadence. Perched on six exclusive acres of verdant hillside, commanding a vantage point over a secluded cove’s glistening waters, this villa offers spectacular sea views.
Outdoor lounges are nestled within rocky alcoves, a generously proportioned dining table awaits poolside for indulgent Teppanyaki-grilled feasts, and the embrace of nature extends as far as your gaze can wander. As daylight wanes, seize the opportunity for a final dip in the infinity-edge swimming pool and savour a breathtaking sunset, accompanied by a glass of something delicious.
L’Etoile des Baux is a luxury French villa in the stunning village of Les Baux-de-Provence. It is hugely unique, built into the rocks with stone protruding beautifully into several of the rooms. The interior decor gives the whole place a wonderfully tranquil feel to it whilst also offering fantastic facilities including a gym, home cinema, games area, and gorgeous outdoor swimming pool.
It would definitely be wise to spend one of your evenings using the magical outdoor cinema with 25 seats. Snuggle up under the stars with a blanket and watch an all time favourite, while listening to the cicadas.
Oozing Tuscan charm, Casa Biondi is a dreamy luxury villa on the 5,000-acre estate of Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco. It really is the ideal spot for whiling away hours, reading your favourite book while listening to nothing but the sounds of birds and the occasional chime of the “Borgo” church bells not so far away.
Of course, if you want a little excitement, you have access to the facilities at the Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco Hotel. Whether you fancy a game of tennis, a sauna or steam bath, or perhaps you want to drop your children at the kid’s club, the hotel has it all!
What was once a farmhouse and watch tower, is now a unique and beautiful luxury villa in Umbria. The six bedrooms are airy and spacious. The rest of the villa’s decor effortlessly bridges the gap between modern and Tuscan rustic beauty.
You’ll probably find you’ll want to spend most of your time in the stunning infinity pool overlooking spectacular countryside views. And if you’re not taking a dip, you’ll be sat in the beautiful alfresco dining area, munching on freshly baked bread, hoping and praying you never have to leave!
Villa Bellanna is one of the many utterly breathtaking villas standing proud on the edge of Lake Como. The villa comes fully staffed, so you needn’t lift a finger throughout your stay.
You’ll be totally enthralled by the interior’s beauty, where they’ve made sure to take care of even the most minute details, ensuring your experience is the highest level of luxury.
