Vista Lago Residences

Ref: H002


Vista Lago Residences is a luxury award-winning development of 18 design-led sustainable villas in the exceptional location of Real de La Quinta, where the views towards Gibraltar and Africa are arguably among the best in the world.
The setting is unique, with Marbella’s iconic La Concha mountain on one side and the exclusive La Zagaleta Country Club & Golf estate on the other, bordering a UNESCO biosphere reserve and just a 15-minute drive from Marbella.

These are innovative and environmentally sustainable villas that are an integral part of the land upon which they were built.

Vista Lago Residences voted World’s Best Residential Development.
Up against more than 500 other developments from every corner of the globe Vista Lago won the top award – Best Residential Development in the World – at the 28th International Property Awards.
Judging focuses on design, quality, service, innovation, originality, and commitment to sustainability. The judging panel is chaired by Lord Caithness, Lord Best and Lord Waverley, members of the House of Lords in the UK Parliament.

BRIGHT are partnered with UDesign Architect Studio, an award-winning architectural and interior design company.
In 2019 UDesign Architect Studio won “Best Architecture in Europe (Single Residence)” at the International Property Awards for the design of Villa Alcuzcuz, also developed by BRIGHT. Then in 2022 they won “Best Architecture in Europe (Mutiple Residence)” for Vista Lago. The exceptional, transformative design they have created for Vista Lago has turned a development of luxury villas into a world-class work of architectural and interior design.
For the last 13 years, UDesign have created some of the best addresses in the world, from mountain retreats in Verbier, Switzerland, to listed buildings in London’s Belgravia and magnificent estates in Marbella’s La Zagaleta.
In addition to their team of award-winning architects, UDesign also produce exclusive bespoke furniture from their own factory which elevates their projects to exceptional standards, rarely seen in residential developments.
The Marbella-based architectural firm González & Jacobson, now celebrating their 25th anniversary in business, are the architects working in collaboration with UDesign on the technical development and construction of Vista Lago Residences.

The concept behind this development is in its difference.
Vista Lago Residences is different from any other development built in Southern Europe, and all of the 18 villas, as well as the furniture and fittings in them, are different from each other.
The commonality they share, aside from the marvellous views, is that all are of the highest standard of construction and design and all display a level of innovation and creativity rarely found in residential developments.

These design-led homes will be quite unlike anything that has gone before.

Individually Designed.
The interiors of all 18 villas have been designed individually. Each villa is unique. You can simply take your pick of the interior style that suits you best. Some villas are more conservative in colour choice, others are bolder. All furniture is either carefully selected top brands, or has been exclusively designed for each villa by UDesign, and is thus unavailable on the open market.

Clear Views.
Everything has been designed around the view. Not just the development as a whole, but each villa is orientated perfectly to maximise views. Inside each villa, nothing stands in the way of the view. Floor-to-ceiling windows slide back into the wall, to bring the living area out into the terrace. Window frames are very thin, so even when closed there is hardly any barrier between inside and out.

Word Class Design.
Open Plan: no walls dividing the communal living spaces.
Large Terraces: with different areas for sunbathing, dining and relaxing.
Ample gardens: all gardens are big enough for vegetable plots, if so desired.
True Infinity Pools: the view from the pool is of the sea and nothing in between.
Bespoke Spaces: areas for entertainment rooms, gyms and offices.
