Where is The Love Island Villa?

The Main Villa

The famous Love Island villa is located on the Spanish Balearic Island of Majorca, in a small town called Sant Llorenç des Cardassar in the Llevant region on the east coast of Majorca. Sant Llorenç des Cardassar is a highly sought after part of Majorca for holiday makers and is situated just one hour and 15 minutes’ drive from Palma, Majorca’s capital city and home to the island’s only airport.

What’s in The Love Island Villa?

The Main Villa

The Love Island villa was given a makeover especially for this year’s show, and the team behind the overhaul definitely didn’t disappoint. The house returned to our screens looking as modern and chic as ever. The Love Island villa boasts a range of fantastic amenities including a large living room, modern bathrooms and a balcony with incredible countryside views.

The bedroom, which sleeps 12, was given a complete facelift, too, with bright pink and blue blankets and cushions, giant holiday-themed images and funky décor.

As any Love Island fan will know, the large bedroom with six double beds isn’t the only place where contestants can rest their heads after a long day of sunbathing. The Love Island villa is also famously known for its ‘Hideaway’ – otherwise known as the place people go to *talk* about their feelings.

This luxurious bedroom is a romantic and private part of the house, beautifully decorated from top to bottom. Along with this private room, there is also a large living room where contestants can relax (it also doubles up as 'the dog house' when couples fall out and one is kicked out of the bedroom!).

As well as a stylish interior, the Love Island villa boasts an impressive outdoor area for contestants to enjoy. The garden has an enormous swimming pool, gym area and Jacuzzi, along with an outdoor open-plan kitchen and a range of outdoor seating areas.

There’s also a range of shaded day beds and a huge patio and lawn area for contestants to lounge on.

The round seating area, also known as the ‘coupling-up’ area, is fully equipped with comfy cushions and a fancy fire pit to keep contestants warm and also enhance the dramatic ambiance for those all-important recouplings.

Casa Amor

Casa Amor is a luxury villa hidden in acres of rolling Majorcan countryside, behind fancy electric gates – giving guests the utmost privacy during their stay. With four bedrooms and five bathrooms, the villa can comfortably cater for parties of up to eight people.

The bedrooms and bathrooms are beautifully decorated to a very high standard. The overall feel is lavish and modern – exactly the type of residence you’d expect for the Love Island cast.

As well as the gorgeous bedroom and bathroom amenities, Casa Amor is also home to a fully-kitted-out designer kitchen, relaxing sitting room and two roof terraces.

Speaking of roof terraces, the outdoor space and stunning setting are what really sets Casa Amor apart from other Balearic villas. The garden includes luxuries such as a 14m swimming pool, lemon and orange trees, a secluded day bed and the villa’s very own private vineyard.

Casa Amor also has access to some of the most incredible views in Majorca. The villa is surrounded by acres of picturesque greenery making the surroundings almost as attractive as the villa itself - and let's not forget the stunning garden, complete with swimming pool and manicured shrubbery.

Do the Villas Look the Same in Real Life as They Do on Screen?

The Main Villa

The crew at ITV completely transform the villa each year into the one we see on screen, and the only part of the Love Island garden that stays the same after filming finishes is the pool. Everything from the decking, outdoor kitchen, pergola and sunbeds are stripped out and stored between each series.

One of the biggest changes the crew make to the villa is the structuring of the bedroom and kitchen. The wall behind the six beds in the villa’s long room is actually false and has been put there to hide the villa’s real kitchen, which both viewers and islanders never see. The crew then build the outdoor kitchen in the garden to encourage contestants to spend more time outside rather than in the villa.

Each year, once Love Island filming ends, the villa is put back to its original state and handed back to its owner. The process of transforming the villa into what we see on screen takes around eight weeks and taking it all out and putting it back to normal takes around four.

Casa Amor

A lot less work is done to Casa Amor as the contestants spend much less time in there. Aesthetically, the villa is as you see it on screen for the rest of the year. The only difference between on and off screen is that during filming, all the boys stayed in one bedroom whereas in real life, Casa Amor has four bedrooms which would separately sleep eight people.

But as we’re all aware, watching a load of contestants in one room is much more entertaining than the two-to-a-room situation we’d all be used to on holiday! The garden and living space is all the same as what you’ll see on your TV screens – the only thing we don’t see much of is the kitchen and other bedrooms (which are totally gorgeous, by the way).

Can You Rent The Love Island Villas?

The Main Villa

The short answer to this, sadly, is no. The main Love Island villa is privately owned by a German millionaire and is rented by ITV for the duration of each series, including eight weeks of prep before filming and returning it back to its original state for four weeks afterwards.

But whilst you may not be able to have a giant sleepover with your friends in the main villa… Casa Amor is a different story altogether.

Casa Amor

Super fans of Love Island will be happy to know that not only can you rent Casa Amor to stay in for a week or two, but it’s actually also on the market for just over £2.5million (just in case you happened to have that laying around... ).

The villa is currently listed on Villa Retreats and is priced from £4,572 to £8,128 per week depending on the time of year you want to visit. Casa Amor sleeps eight people in four bedrooms (two en suite) and has five bathrooms, a living room that is joined to a semi-outdoor sofa area, a BBQ, air conditioning and a maid service on request.

Perfect for hen parties and group holidays, the luxury villa is within reasonable distance from nice restaurants, beaches, shops and is just one hour and 15 minutes’ drive from Majorca’s capital Palma.

If a week’s holiday isn’t enough, and you just happen to have a few million set aside for a rainy day – why not consider buying the villa?  Casa Amor could be yours for a whopping €2,900,000 (£2,589,682.51). The property is currently listed on Zoopla and considering the popularity of the latest series of Love Island, we don’t think it’ll be on the market for long!
