|Gonzales and his guards are relaxing by the pool.|
The villa is private and not accesible for the public, which makes it one of the most hard to visit Bond locations. If you do want a glimpse of this classic pool area you have to infiltrate it just like Bond. The best way is from the south side, the same way Moore took in the film. If you park your car at the Hotel parking lot you can gain access to a small road surrounding the villa through some bushes and over a small ditch. The guard that keeps an eye out for unwanted visitors in the film is actually guarding this road. From here you can take the steps up to the pool area or climb the 4 m high wall and take a look into the garden. Fortunately there are no armed guards in the bushes anymore.
