Where is the Love Island villa 2023?

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.

How much does the Love Island in South Africa villa cost?

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.
