When it comes to property in Marbella, Drumelia does things bigger, and bolder.

Two boxes Villa Vela Sotogrande certainly tick!

From our very popular Youtube channel – the leading real estate channel in Europe – to our award-winning website and over 160 000 followers on Instagram, it's safe to say Drumelia's got things covered.

Yet no matter the media, it all revolves around one age-old skill: storytelling.

READ ON about the stunning video we made for the as-stunning Villa Vela.

The beautifully landscaped, split-level garden flows naturally towards the emerald-green golf course in front, and the Mediterranean nearby. Completing a picture of ultimate comfort, luxury and joy.

All said, a beautiful property to present to the world. An opportunity Drumelia couldn't resist!

A property video you have to watch - and won't forget

Luxury this rich demands a grand scale to be appreciated. A grand canvas.

And what could be grander than a film made with the boldest of sweeps, presenting Villa Vela Sotogrande as a striking character?

Released just one month ago, the video already has 194 000 views on Youtube, an impressive number for Drumelia, and a spectacular number for the category!

Unveiling Villa Vela: Where we filmed it

Besides using the majestic house as our very own film set, we also used a larger canvas, showing the magnificent area it is set in.

As a location of luxury, Sotogrande is truly all things to all people.

From its crystalline sea views to world-renowned golf and polo courses, it represents living on a fine scale. Charming those who visit it. Then, there are the yacht clubs and beach clubs that stand second to none.

Add in the charm of its marina canals where people literally live next to the water, you have a unique mix of Venice and Miami, set under 320 days of Spanish sun!

To set the scene for our film, Sotogrande was used extensively. And it had plenty to offer.

The trick wasn’t to find something to shoot. Rather, how to find the time to shoot all of it! As is, we only featured some of the stunning sights of Sotogrande.

Behind the scenes: Villa Vela Sotogrande

As any storyteller knows, an artist is only as good as his tools. And in Drumelia’s case, no tool is spared.

To capture Villa Vela Sotogrande, our camera team used a Steadicam, gliding up and down stairs and through rooms to allow for a spontaneous delivery that kept the story flowing.

Our dedicated camera crew never stopped moving, shooting multiple locations and setups over the course of a very intense five days. Moving from land...

To sea...

And back to land again!

Last but definitely not the least, we relied on drone cameras to capture spectacular speedboat scenery, as well as aerial views of the house and adjoining golf course.
