This property offers wide open views of the sea and total privacy, yet is just a few minutes walk to the center of town with its shops and restaurants. Villa Barbara embraces the quintessential coastal life.

Living Spaces:

The elegant sitting room with fireplace and high ceilings with traditional wood beams, together with another expansive living room that opens onto the stunning terrace, offer a world of lux- ury and relaxation. The formal dining room with vaulted ceiling and large windows with breathtaking views of the harbor delivers a stylish atmosphere. Handsomely furnished with antiques and modern pieces, Villa Barbara prides itself with outstanding service. Fully equipped kitchen and guest bathroom complete this floor.


Four different outdoor dining areas are present on the estate, including a pretty vine-covered gazebo on a plateau. From here you can enjoy unrivaled views of the sea while eating, and the near saltwater swimming pool offers a bar carved out of the rocks, perfect to serve you your favorite drink at the right temperature. The surrounding private park is a tranquil oasis above the glitzy town.

This waterfront luxury villa features a unique access from the road: walk 200 meters inside a tunnel carved in the rock, than take an elevator which bring you to the villa entrance. The outdoor furnishings with plush white cushions give a very cool feeling during those hot summer days. The closest beach is a 15-minute walk away. Experience the intimate beauty and the timeless elegance of this hideaway, where the romantic lights of the port in the distance at night will transport you in a dream.
