Villa of the week: Villa Leo

This divine seven-bedroom home is all about elegance and sophistication, with minimal décor, classic contemporary furniture and arresting architecture. Immaculate and simply styled, it’s beautifully situated in the heart of Morna Valley, with a long pool, expansive terraces and glorious country views.

Incredible architecture combined with simple interiors proves to be a winning combination at Villa Leo. As the views across the valley to the sea are so inspiring, huge terraces are a key feature of the property; one covers the dining area with double height ceilings and low hanging lamps, terraces line the pool and there are also split level terraces on both the ground and first floor of the main house. The main living has equally high ceilings, creating a wonderful feeling of space and serenity as you wander around taking in the flamboyant fabrics that add some swirls of colour to the warm neutral colour palette, with a gorgeously sophisticated shining white kitchen.

The oversized windows allow you to sleep right next to nature and provide an awesome wake up call. Take in the views from your deluxe bed as you lounge to your heart’s content in sophisticated surroundings. All five double bedrooms feature ensuite bathrooms and can be converted to twins if required, with classic contemporary bathrooms featuring marble walls and floors.
