Atardecer Estate, Punta de Mita, Mexico

Private pool
The crescent-shaped pool hugs the palapa living area in turquoise hues

Classy beachfront living meets grand Mexican hacienda in a harmonious architectural symphony. This home merges unrivaled ocean vistas, manicured gardens, expansive terraces and a touch of Punta de Mita magic. It’s as though the infinity pool envelops the majestic property like an inverted bay so that sunbathers on the terraces appear to be floating out to sea. Totally stunning!

Villa Pienza, Tuscany, Italy

Indoor-outdoor salt water pool. Why have one when you can have both!

Privacy, serenity and a big serving of rustic Tuscan charm make this restored farmhouse a delightful choice for a tranquil getaway with your favourite peeps. The private pool is long enough that you might choose to burn off some well-earned pasta and tiramisu calories doing laps. It also has an indoor section on one end, which provides shade in the summer and warmth in the cooler months. The best of both worlds.

Quinto Sol, Careyes. Mexico

Ocean Views
An 8-bedroom deluxe retreat on top of the world

This incredible estate is definitely not your average vacation venue. Quinto Sol is a seriously special place. It is in a gated natural reserve where the only other neighbor is the famed Careyes Polo Club, 10 minutes away. Epic ocean views can be enjoyed from all corners of this villa, not least as you swim towards the horizon in its impressive lap pool that commands the tropical surroundings. A magical experience.

Vista Bella, Marbella, Spain

Private Pool
This pool terrace is ready for lounging, chilling and partying!

Vista Bella evokes a crisp, clean feel that mirrors the simple lines of this one-story home. The name is appropriate, not only because of the great vistas down to the famed Marbella coast and out to the Mediterranean but also for the lovely views across the garden to the impressively-sized private pool with its bar and party set-up. Time for poolside lounging.

Villa Alegria, Algarve, Portugal
