Groups at Villas Espavel

Renting Villas Espavel as a group is a wonderful way to bring a large family or collection of friends together in a magical place. At Villas Espavel you will be immersed in our tranquil natural setting while the beautiful beach, restaurants and shops of Samara are a quick 5-minute walk away.

Our 6 villas sleep a total of 12 people in individual beds or a total of 24 people when sharing queen beds. Each villa is air-conditioned and has its own kitchen, bathroom and patio, which means quiet spaces and a place to enjoy a cocktail or a cerveza.

Book your group trip with us and can come play in the pool, stretch out atop our yoga deck and enjoy private chef-cooked meals in the privacy of your very own villa. For more information on how you can book your group trip, email us at
