Introducing ABOVE by CV Villas – fully staffed villas that are far above the ordinary

The sheer luxury of ABOVE villas by CV Villas is second to none. They range from the stylishly contemporary to the opulently elegant, with incredible grounds and gardens featuring spectacular swimming pools, shaded terraces and outstanding views. With the emphasis as much on service as on the villas themselves, every house within the collection has a fantastic team of staff. You will typically be greeted with champagne and canapés upon arrival, and throughout your stay you can expect to feast upon exceptional international and local cuisine prepared by a private chef.*

Examples of ABOVE villas include an exquisite 7-bedroom house in Corfu with breathtaking views, stunning pool areas with direct sea access via a network of pathways weaving through the wooded estate to a jetty, a small pebble beach and sun drenched rock bathing.

In Tuscany a magnificent and historic house sits in spectacular grounds where it was built in 1651 for Pope Alexander VII. A fabulous pool, tennis courts and chef service add to its appeal, while its formal gardens enhance its matchless appeal as a wedding venue.

Further afield, an enchanting house in Barbados sits above a secret sandy cove with a 18′ speed boat ready for guests’ use and a team of staff including chef, butler and boat master.

*If your chosen ABOVE villa doesn’t come with chef service, CV Villas’ exciting new partnership with Take A Chef means that you and your party can enjoy an alternative on-holiday dining experience.
