ABOVE Luxury staffed villas from CV Villas

Examples of the ABOVE collection include:

Villa Balbina

With exceptional standards of comfort and service, and an exquisite setting above a sheltered beach, this luxury villa in the Algarve has superb facilities and direct access to the sandy beach. Sleeping up to 10 people the villa offers an unrivalled range of fine facilities including a gym, an heated infinity pool surrounded by furnished sun terraces, and a poolside Jacuzzi and bar overlooking the sea. The sitting room is spacious, cool and contemporary, and each of the five bedrooms has a bathroom or shower room en suite. Cook service is included here for breakfast and lunch. Deservedly popular, the villa is within walking distance of two beach restaurants and 1 km to the well known Villa Joya Michelin star restaurant as well as shops, restaurants, and sports on land and sea.

Leamington Pavilion

Opulence, indulgence and five-star service are the hallmarks of this luxury 3-bedroom villa in Barbados (pictured above), where all that comes between you and the sea is a gorgeous pool and a white sand beach. With a gate straight on to the beach, and a coral reef just offshore, this very individual house nestles in tropical gardens, where orchids, a lily pond and whimsical statuary add colour and character to manicured lawns; and, beside a fabulous swimming pool, a pair of pergolas under the palms are lit with copper chandeliers and crowned with cast monkeys. The villa has its own lawn tennis court and a small gym, but its tranquil tempo induces idyllic idling, as do the services of its obliging staff, and the delicious meals prepared by the chef. Created by architect and stage set designer Oliver Messel, Leamington Pavillion has hosted silver screen stars including Greta Garbo.
