Designed by award-winning Lagula Architects in 2022, the home has been designed around a central courtyard, which is created to give the feeling of living in a forest amidst a canopy of trees. To truly open itself up to the surrounding views, Selva 25 has an open-plan patio. The 3-bedroom and 3-bathroom property has a unique ovoid shape and takes inspiration from the sun in a bid to frame the surrounding landscape perfectly. La Selva project pays tribute to the surrounding landscape, with each distinct villa constructed to reflect its local topography. Lagula Arquitectes notes that Selva 25 was “an exciting challenge” and they “found harmony between the circular shape of the building and the floor plan to create something that felt cohesive for its owner.” Spread across three levels, the ground floor is home to central areas; the living spaces and kitchen, the upper floor houses the bedrooms, and the basement provides a sanctuary to create a multi-purpose space dependent on the owner’s needs.” Selva 25 embodies the essence of a home: a cozy ambiance, a seamless layout, and yet, there’s an unmistakable, truly remarkable quality about this property. It is also fused together with a central bespoke staircase which connects all the different areas of the house. Just one hour from Barcelona, and situated within over 1,300 acres of pristine, landscaped hills and Mediterranean forest, the resort is within easy reach of two international airports as well as the wild Costa Brava – with extensive leisure activities available at 5-star Hotel Camiral nearby. The resort is home to two world-class golf courses – recently ranked the best golf course in Spain, tennis courts, walking trails, as well as a 1,000m² Wellness Centre: a modern, results-driven sanctuary combining holistic treatments with state-of-the-art technology to garner results catering to personal needs. Since its venture into Real Estate in 2010, Camiral Golf & Wellness has embraced low-density, sustainable and biophilic design throughout its contemporary properties, incorporating principles of wellbeing to equip residents with a sense of ecological belonging and natural immersion. More broadly, the resort is recognised for its commitment to its surrounding environment, featuring an organic garden, 12-acre vineyard and 18 beehives hosting a million endangered honeybees, from which it produces around 50kg of honey each year. In-house biologist Oriol Dalmau oversees the parkland while leading a variety of educational, nature-based programmes and activities on-site. Recent investments include a renovation of all central air conditioning units in the 5-star hotel and Wellness Centre reducing energy consumption by 50%, the installation of a 900 square-metre photovoltaic power station reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 51 tonnes per year and the golf courses irrigation using 100% recycled water.
