Sitting on top of a famous bay and with a well-known National Park behind, this is truly a villa with one of the most exclusive settings you’ll ever experience. Surrounded by olive trees and built from the natural slate rock on which it stands, the house has been carefully designed to blend in with the landscape.
With expansive open plan living spaces, high ceilings and large panoramic windows, the scenery and architecture have been brilliantly brought together. The bay, with its beautiful beach, fishing boats and magical light inspired the famous painter Salvador Dali, whose house - now preserved as a museum - sits just 5 minutes away.
Sa Vista is literally a few meters from the water’s edge, and a mere twenty-minute walk to the bustling town of Cadaqués, with its distinctive church and whitewashed houses tumbling down the hillsides around a beautiful horseshoe shaped bay.
The house has been designed with accessibility in mind. Whilst on 2 floors, the main living and sleeping areas and access to the terrace and pool are accommodated on the ground floor level that has good wheelchair access. Distributed in three main wings this floor includes a large open plan sitting room, one main kitchen, a second kitchen and 4 bedrooms, all with private bathrooms.
A modern polished wooden staircase takes you down to a lower level with 4 en-suite bedrooms, sitting/home cinema room, 3 games rooms (with table tennis, table football and a bar pool table room), sauna with changing rooms and showers, and a laundry room for use by the maids.

The entrance portico to the house opens up to an expansive open plan living space with high ceilings, black slate floor with under-floor heating and large panoramic views. This area is arranged to provide a large space for more formal dining, together with two lounge areas each with picture windows looking out across the Mediterranean. This second lounge area features a large flat screen TV and glass double-fronted fireplace that can be opened both internally and externally out onto the patio/pool terrace. The open plan space can be sectioned off into more intimate areas with an impressive system of discreet sliding wood panelling.

Teak decking surrounds the large infinity pool, which has a water jet and cold water shower together with a large Jacuzzi overlooking the bay.

Many thanks for a wonderful week at Sa Vista. The villa was extremely clean, spacious and bright. The children loved the swimming pool and its fantastic views across Port Lligatt. The local area was very charming, quiet and unassuming. We had a lovely week. As a runner it was just amazing to take the coastal trails to the nearby lighthouse just 3 miles away.
The beach restaurant in Port Lligatt served amazing fresh fish and I would recommend the friendly, efficient service again. We were extremely lucky to be there for one of the local festivals in Cadaques which was great to see. A really good, relaxing place to go. I would certainly recommend the villa to others and I hope we do make a return visit at some point as well.
The only slight negative was the slightly frequent and unannounced arrival of the housekeeper. She was pleasant enough but appeared about three times during our week without notice accompanied by a tradesman to fix an ice machine, a dish washer and something else. Thought we should mention but it really did not spoil our week at all.
