Built for three or four families, or nine couples, Palmsola is a massive villa in Punta Mita, Mexico that could perhaps be described better as an ‘Estate’ than a ‘Home’. Twenty-five thousand square feet (approximately 2323 square meters) of space hosts eleven buildings constructed in a ‘village’ setting right along a beautiful beach. Each pavilion is air-conditioned, allowing individuals to customize the temperature inside to what is most comfortable for them, and the estate offers both indoor and outdoor recreation opportunities ranging from exercise equipment to board games to kayaks and a heated, infinity-edge swimming pool. A large rooftop dining area accommodates up to sixteen guests at once, allowing for comfortable outdoor dining, and the fully-equipped kitchen helps make preparation a simple task.

Considered to be one of the national monuments of Italy, Villa Mosaico was built in the 1700s by a nobleman granted use of the property by a papal family. The features contained within the villa are almost too numerous to list, but highlights include sleeping space for 33 guests (a great way to make this villa affordable), a fresco by famed neoclassical artist Andrea Appiani, two beautiful pianos, a children’s play area complete with wooden slide and swing set, and even a modern workout room complete. Showcasing some of the most classic design and luxury in all of Europe, Villa Mosaico is large and luxurious enough to hold as many as eight families all at the same time, and its impressive opulence is a testimony to the history of Europe itself.
