With a design and interiors that recall a Viareggio superyacht and James Bond’s Willard Whyte villa, Casa Savannah offers luxurious lateral living over basement, ground and first floor, with floor-to-ceiling glazing and sliding glass doors opening onto outside terraces on all levels. The villa is surmounted by a roofgarden with terraces offering panoramic views over the Mediterranean.
Every aspect of the villa delivers outstanding glamour, luxury and visual appeal, starting with the spectacular open-plan entrance lobby which has a picture window and double-height atrium offering views of gardens and outdoor swimming pool beyond, alongside the superyacht-style feature glass lift and its wrap-around curved staircase which connects all floors.
The lobby leads into the main living room which has sliding glass walls opening onto the outside terrace lounge, protected from the sun by a brise soleil with adjustable louvers, forming a vast cosy inside-outside entertaining space, fronting onto the outside swimming pool and gardens. Dressed with sofas and cabannas this magnificent space is perfect for relaxation or entertaining during the summer months and there is an outside cinema screen by the sofa seating area that rises up from the wooden decking.
On the other side of the central lobby and atrium there is a family kitchen with central island and six-seat breakfast bar and an adjoining inside dining room with full height glazing overlooking the gardens. There is also a covered outside dining terrace with a 14-seat dining table for al fresco entertaining. A bedroom suite with ensuite and outside terrace and a guest powder room complete the ground floor accommodation.
On the basement floor there are the leisure and wellness facilities of the villa. The spectacular 1,361 sqft (126.45m2) indoor swimming pool has water jets and LED lighting and is bordered by lounge decks, with high-gloss marble walls and coffered ceiling. There is also a cocktail bar with bespoke pool table with polished Nero walls, feature lighting and slab stone flooring. The Art Deco-like cinema room can seat 10-14 people and incorporates sofa style leather seating and high-chairs with cocktail bar. There is also a gymnasium, spa with massage room, juice bar and lounge and basement lobby.
On the first floor the principal bedroom suite spans the entire depth of the villa with the main bedroom incorporating a day/lounge area with sliding glass doors opening onto a large exterior lounge terrace. The principal suite has His and Hers walk-in dressing rooms and His marble bathroom and Her marble bathroom with freestanding sculptural bathtub and walk-in shower.

On the top of the villa is a large roof garden, with a lounge area and a 12 seat dining area, the roof terrace provides sweeping views over the Marbella Club and the Mediterranean. The villa is complete with staff quarters including a studio-bedroom, laundry and pantry.
Designed to compliment the villa and mosaic-tiled outside swimming pool, the landscaped gardens include a main lawn, a garden walkway with a beautiful pergola and beds of lush plants.

Casa Savannah is located within the Marbella Club, the resort destination founded in 1955 by Prince Alfonso Hohenlohe-Langenburg, a member of one of the great titled Noble families of Europe, and his wife, Princess Ira von Furstenberg, a relative of the Agnelli family of Fiat fame.
The Marbella Club was built as Prince Alfonso’s private beachside estate and then developed into a resort providing over 130 villas and bungalows with suites and deluxe rooms, fronting onto the beach and set in tropical gardens. Within the resort the 5-star facilities include the MC Thalasso Spa, Beach Café, MC Café, Club Grill and MC Buffett and a short drive away (18km) there is the MC Golf Resort.

Chelsea Reynolds, Head of Marketing & Hospitality for Casa Savannah says: “With its James Bond like interiors, and inside and outside entertaining spaces, Casa Savannah is arguably the finest villa available to let in Marbella. Set within its own private landscaped gardens, the villa has two swimming pools, leisure and wellness facilities and guests can also access the restaurant, spa, beach club and golfing facilities of the Marbella Club. It’s the ultimate summer holiday pad in Marbella.”
