Villa Vela, its essence explained in the international magazine Robb Report by RACHEL CORMACK

You’d be forgiven for thinking Villa Vela is a luxury resort instead of a private residence.

The Spanish mega-mansion, which the Agency listed for $23 million on Tuesday, spans more than 23,000 square feet and comes with a laundry list of extravagant amenities. That all makes perfect sense once you know the location, though.

The 2.4-acre haven is situated on the southern coast of Spain in Sotogrande. For the unversed, this is one of the largest and most prestigious private developments in the country. The glitzy gated community is so big, in fact, that it’s separated into eight zones. The villa in question is part of the La Reserva zone and was completed in 2020.

This Resort-Like $23 Million Spanish Villa Comes With Two Pools and a 10-Car Garage

Designed by ARK Architects, Villa Vela was named after the Spanish word for a ship’s sail. The three-story, open-plan abode is designed to adapt to the individual as a sail (vela) adapts to the wind, according to listing agent Gideon Lang-Laddie. The main level features a grand hall with a formal dining area, living room and reception area. Perfect for entertainers, it also sports a large kitchen with a marble island and bar seating, a separate prep kitchen and a walk-through pantry.

The top floor houses all six of the property’s suites. Each comes complete with a private outdoor space that connects to the upper terrace. The primary suite is distinguished by a fancier bathroom and a luxe white-oak dressing room. The lower level, meanwhile, offers an indoor pool, a full spa, a Turkish bath, a sauna, Jacuzzi, showers and a fitness center. You’ll also find a wine cellar and tiered movie theater on this floor.

Villa Vela is located in El Mirador de la Reserva de Sotogrande.

El Mirador Sotogrande is a closed and independent residential with six contemporary style villas located in an elevated area of La Reserva Club. With spectacular views of the Mediterranean, it offers perfect privacy to enjoy your holidays in Sotogrande.

A modern design villas with clean lines of contemporary style. Homes of different designs and sizes from four to nine rooms with wonderful views of La Reserva Club and the Mediterranean.

The architecture of the houses can vary to include staff accommodation, spa, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, cinemas, wine cellars, gymnasium, steam baths, garages, spacious terraces and entertainment gardens to suit the future owner’s taste.

El Mirador Sotogrande is a truly exceptional community, the decision to dedicate this piece of land to the project of these six magical houses was due to its breathtaking views. The views from these villas are unique, to the sea, to the mountain and the natural landscape of southern Spain.
