Villa Atrio has been engineered from the ground up to be as energy efficient as possible, relying on renewable power sources and high-tech solutions to build a home that won't cost the earth to run.

The property is driven by a battery of eco-friendly features to keep heating and cooling costs to a minimum, including thermal solar panels, air source heat pumps, chilled-water air-conditioning, heat-reflective glass, and low-wattage LED lighting.

Villa Atrio should be zero-carbon for six months a year, thanks to the 325 days of sun the Costa del Sol receives every year, meaning you'll also want to spend as much time outside as possible. The outdoor pool is heated by concealed solar panels and have retractable covers, while the landscaped gardens use a rainwater-fed automatic irrigation system.
