Pocket Wanderings compiles the best Love Island-style villas you can book for an unforgettable luxury holiday with friends – including two of the actual villas featured in the popular reality show.
The first episode of Winter Love Island aired on 16th January and it’s already got us all hankering after a blissful sunny getaway. Last July, there were over 12,000 monthly searches in the UK for ‘love island villa’ and we’ll no doubt see the same trend with the winter season. It’s clear that people are dreaming of a Love Island-style villa getaway to sunnier climes.
The travel experts at Pocket Wanderings have done the research to uncover the best Love Island-style villas available to book – including the actual villas used in both the recent Mallorca and Cape Town locations.
Ludus Magnus Estate, Cape Town, South Africa (Season 9 Villa)
For those only content with booking the actual Love Island villa, the property in the current season is the Manor House on the Ludus Magnus Estate in Cape Town. It’s set in a breathtaking location, framed by mountains and endless acres of vineyards. A five-star escape that offers total tranquillity and impeccable style (once you take away the bright Love Island aesthetic, of course!).

The 2022 summer season of Love Island was filmed in Villa Sa Vinyassa. Located in the hilly region of Sant Llorenc in Mallorca, it’s a luxurious retreat with sophisticated decor and beautiful far-reaching views. Unfortunately, there is currently no availability at this grand villa, but it’s worth a spot on any travel bucket list in the meantime.
