Chill-out Zones: Places of rest in the modern villa
In recent years, the chill-out zone has become an essential feature of the luxury villa. It’s no longer enough that your premium villa only features an outdoor dining area, gorgeous pool and terrace – guests expect a designated area of comfy furniture to sit back, unwind and enjoy company.
This week on the Villa Club Blog, we’re looking at the best and most creative chill-out zones of Spanish villas and what makes them special.
Sitting amongst the property’s features such as the pool, terraces and al fresco dining area, Can Vali’s chill-out zone takes the form of a wooden gazebo. The structure provides a long U-shaped cushioned seating arrangement, perfect for spending time with fellow guests in a zone that inspires conversation. This area also provides a sense of separation from the rest of the property, thanks to its isolation from the other communal areas.
The Asian influence of Sa Ermita’s chill-out zone makes it immediately distinctive. The area is independent from the house but is accessible through one of the side doors and it stands out due to its natural materials and beige tones. One of the most striking things about this chill-out zone is its large cream coloured curtains that convert it into an intimate, private place of escape. When the curtains are open the lovely green lawn and gardens provide a great backdrop.
Just next to the decked pool area, Can Vinyes’ chill-out zone adopts a minimalist whitewashed design that perfectly suits the sunny atmosphere of the Malloquín property. Those relaxing in a chill-out zone next to the villa’s pool always enjoy a good outdoor atmosphere provided by those having fun in the water. This area also enjoys white curtains that ransform the atmosphere behind the curtain into a peaceful place of tranquillity thanks to the white tones and soft material.
Can Zepplin’s chill-out zone is truly unique, featuring a specially-created location beyond the front terrace where guests can bask in the sun with a sense of isolation. The area is also about a metre lower than the rest of the exterior area, creating a further sense of separation while physically remaining nearby. This chill-out zone’s large coffee table makes the area perfect for enjoying drinks or even meals in a highly relaxed setting.
