As many of you know, here at Villas In Luxury we also have a couple of brands dedicated to the best luxury ski chalets in the Alps. We have Ski In Luxury which offers over 700 luxury chalets and Ultimate Luxury Chalets which has the top 100 of these 700 properties. This got me thinking, what if we did the same for Villas In Luxury and offered the best of the best. Which of our villas would make the cut? Well, across the World we have some amazing villas so I had to whittle it down a bit. Here, therefore, are my top 5 luxury villas in Europe. What do you think?
Mas Mateu, Costa Brava
If you are looking for a luxury villa in Spain then Mas Mateu on the Costa Brava should definitely be considered. Mas Mateu has to be one of the most in demand properties that we offer. The villa is in demand by the rich and famous, with footballers and celebrities regularly frequenting the property. They are drawn by the privacy of the villa and the lush green grounds and gardens.
It is a converted Catalan Estate that has beautifully blended the traditional stone work and history with contemporary furnishings and facilities. This luxury villa on the Costa Brava has amazing views over towards the Pyrenees mountain range and an array of facilities that ranges from a large outdoor swimming pool to a cinema and gym. They have even managed to fit an elevator into this beautiful old Catalan Villa.
Domaine Mareeba, Côte d’Azur
Domaine Mareeba is made up of three modern villas which, when combined, can accommodate up to 24 guests. Between them they share large gardens and two infinity pools. Every aspect of this grand estate has been designed to give a light open-plan yet subtle, state-of-the-art retreat.

Tagomago Island, North Ibiza
We couldn’t compose a list of the most luxurious villas in the Europe without including the amazing Tagomago Island, just off the coast of North Ibiza. If peace and tranquillity is what you’re looking for then this private island will offer you just that. The Tagomago Villa is set in the heart of the small island and can sleep up to 10 people.
You have all the facilities that you’d expect of a luxury villa in Ibiza such as an outdoor swimming pool, gym, heliport etc, but you also have some that you wouldn’t expect, including a lighthouse built in 1909.
