the heart of Porto Vita stands the opulent Villa Grande,
inspired by classic Italian renaissance architecture and
meticulously crafted by old world master artisans to stand as a
testament to those who can, and do, live life on a grand scale.
Within a short walk of every
residence is the exclusive Villa Grande Club, a treasured jewel
that is removed from the rest of South Florida and the world.
Villa Grande is the most exclusive club of its kind in the
world, reflecting the stature and good taste of every Porto Vita
Created by internationally renowned architect Gian
Enrico Fabro, a foremost expert in the field of historic Italian
restoration, the Club is a masterpiece of grand art and sophisticated
pleasure. Fabro and his staff scoured the Italian countryside for more
than a year to assemble the precise antiques, materials, finishes and
master craftsmen needed to imbue the Villa Grande with authenticity and
grandeur unparalleled anywhere else in the world.
The Villa Grande’s graceful, timeless design is
accented by polished, imported marble, rich Italian walnut and authentic
antiques, transforming its welcoming sun-baked stucco walls and
warm terra-cotta barrel tile roof into a sanctum of supreme privilege.
An interior of exquisite Venetian stucco, painstakingly applied --
inch-by-inch -- by an Italian expert, beckons members to luxuriate in
the splendor within. Sheltered from care, enraptured by beautiful
imported objects d’art, Porto Vita residents are surrounded by
relaxing ambience that regenerates the spirit of Europe’s golden age.
