ITV's Love Island is well underway now! Since June 28th, the Love Island 2021 contestants have been making themselves at home in the Majorcan villa.


Viewers were happy to see the ITV2 dating show return to its rightful place in Majorca, with the villa looking just how we remember it from summer 2019.

The Casa Amor twist has now taken place, with the boys leaving the main villa for a few days while they stayed in another location with some of the Casa Amor 2021 cast.

Recently, the islanders enjoyed a day out of the villa at Island Vibes beach club, which also featured in series five.

So, where is Love Island filmed? And is the villa open to the public to stay?

Here's everything you need to know about the Love Island villa and all the places where the show is filmed.

Where is Love Island filmed?

For series seven, Love Island returned to the sleepy, sunny Balearic Island of Majorca and the villa last seen in the 2019 series.

Love Island's millions of fans were concerned the show would not go ahead for a second successive year because of flight restrictions, but Spanish Prime Minister, Pedro Sanchez, announced British tourists would be allowed to enter Spain removing barriers to the series proceeding.

In the quiet town of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, the Love Island villa can be found on the island's stunning east coast in a vast rural area that is far away from prying eyes the stuff of romantic dreams.

It is the second villa used in the series, replacing the initial location also in Majorca after the conclusion of series 2. Both villas are in keeping with the rustic Spanish style with a splash of modernist colour inside.

What is the Love Island villa like?

The current house is bigger and bolder with a gym, hot tub and luscious outdoor seating area. Possessing a neon decorative aesthetic, it is certainly eye-catching offering a similar vibe to the massive beach resorts popular all over Europe.

The biggest difference from the initial villa is the pool. 2016's Love Island villa boasted the largest private pool in the Balearic Islands. It turned out it was too big: it's hard to flirt when you're exhausted after a single lap, or your fellow swimmers are half a mile away. This pool in the current villa is smaller and heated with ITV anticipating some steamy pool action.

Have there been any changes to the villa for series seven?

Series seven returned with a refurbished villa. Although it looks just like the villa we know and love, the show's voiceover Iain Stirling revealed that there'd be a new lick of paint around the villa and lots of new furniture, including the iconic day beds and some new artwork over the headboards.

The famous Mallorcan villa underwent some changes over the summer to make sure it's COVID secure.

A Love Island sneak peek revealed some “secret drawers” in the cosy hideaway, and as the show cracked on on Monday, 28th June we got to see the villa in all its glory!

Can you rent the Love Island villa and stay there on holiday?

No unfortunately not. The villa is privately owned so you can't rent it for a massive sleepover with all your mates when Love Island moves out.

Where is Casa Amor and how can you rent it?

Casa Amor is the infamous second villa introduced to Love Island in the third series to create some added spice and drama. It is where couples get split up and put with different partners in the hopes of turning their eye and twisting their feelings.

Like the main villa, it can be found in the Majorcan countryside and is privately owned. However unlike the main villa, Casa Amor is available to rent when not occupied by the Love Island crew.

Coming with a private chef and chauffeur, Casa Amor is the height of luxury and merely minutes away from the main filming location. At a cost between £4,572 and £7,417 per week, it can be all yours.

It is available to rent through Villa Retreats here.

Where is Island Vibes beach club?

On Sunday, 8th August, the islanders left the villa for a day at a beach club, known as Island Vibes.

Although the exact location of the beach club has been kept secret, it is likely that it is also in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, where the main villa is based.

It also doesn't appear to be an actual beach club, but rather a villa that the Love Island producers have made into their own beach club. Speaking of tunes, if you spotted one you liked on the show recently but don't know the name then check out our complete guide to all of the Love Island songs.
