The estate was originally built as a private house in the late seventies, in a privileged location on a small peninsula that, it is said, served as a refuge for pirates in the 17th century. The house was able to circumvent at that time the law of Costas that years later restricted this type of constructions to 500 meters inland from the shore. After the total renovation of the Russian oligarch, the villa has six rooms with capacity for 12 people, several terraces and open-air areas, a swimming pool of 23 meters and another one nestled in a tropical garden, as well as a gymnasium and a platform of Mixtures for DJs. In addition, it has a staff of 22 employees, from cooks to laundry staff.

Sustainable House

One of the most important aspects of the house is that it is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and is totally sustainable, allowing it to reuse wastewater for the irrigation system of the gardens and to reduce the environmental waste to the maximum. The reform, which concluded three years ago, has also focused on reducing the lighting impact and on energy efficiency. The villa was refurbished by the architect Jaime Romano, who completed a project to create a modern, Mediterranean-style space based on light colors. The building also has outdoor dining areas, semi-open bathrooms and a decor that integrates typical objects of the Pitiusa culture.
