Love Island has found a new home for their 2023 line-up this winter and it's fabulous! But where is the villa this year? And how much does it cost?
Complete with a bar, a huge pool area and of course, a new hideaway for couples - this new location is sure to be a hit for all the new singletons looking to find The One.
So, where is the Love Island villa this year? And just how expensive is this not-so-humble abode? Here's everything you need to know about the new pad.
The new Love Island 2023 villa will be in the Ludus Magnus estate in Franschhoek – which is just outside of Cape Town, South Africa!
According to the tabloids, the estate is nearly 25 acres in size and boasts 17 bedrooms, a treehouse, a freshwater dam, an ‘Olympic length’ swimming lanes, a running track, a zip wire and much more! Wow, just wow.
Luxury villas are also situated near the land's main property, meaning the hideaway could be just a stone's throw away.
The estate is currently undergoing a makeover just in time for the new season, getting the resort location in line with Love Island's unmistakable aesthetic.
Producers have reportedly spent a whopping £1.2 million on the new villa, and you can see why the price point is so high.
The aforementioned publication claims that one night at Ludus Magnu would set you back £8,000 a night – and ITV are hiring the property for five months.
Before it became the shooting location for the new season, the estate was used as a holiday destination. Ludus Magnu's Instagram page shows off all the luxurious features of the Cape Town paradise.
