vita campagna L A B E L L A VI T A country living “Di Lusso” (Italian for “of luxury”) is a place where you can enjoy all of the amenities and comforts of a luxurious life amid the natural beauty of the Texas Hill Country.
You’re atop gently rolling hills with sunrises over deep canopies of hardwoods and rich valleys filled with the music of the rolling Guadalupe River. At Cordillera Ranch, everything sits back away from the road, nestled in winding Texas woods of live oak and waving native grasses. Breezes are enhanced, lighting is subdued, the sky’s a little darker, stars a little brighter…it’s vita campagna, country living.
And yet Di Lusso is an easy walk to the modern conveniences of The Clubs of Cordillera Ranch clubhouse, with its fitness center and spa, refreshing pools, fine dining, tennis center and one of the finest golf courses in Texas, personally designed by Jack Nicklaus. You have all the space and amenities of an excellent country home in a gated community of Italian villas. No matter where you travel, you come home to paradise. We are proud to offer you more than a beautiful residence:

passion for good living L A VI T A C O NVIVI A L E
At various intervals along the Italian coast and throughout her countryside, entire villages exist merely to provide for human mental health and physical tone. Your villa at Di Lusso is a short walk or golf cart ride from The Clubs of Cordillera Ranch, where you resort to your passion for good living: fitness center, renowned chef, pools, spa, tennis, stables, sporting clays circuit, river activities, hiking and, of course, one of the best golf courses in Texas.

Payaya and other tribes found the abundant grasses and treescape, clear spring waters and teeming wildlife. In the late 17th Century they were joined by Spanish Missionaries, German and European settlers, all drawn to and captivated by beauty and easy living in a hospitable, nurturing environment.

The native Hill Country ambiance of settlerâ€™s homes and stage coach outposts dot a landscape of upscale homes. Here is where people come to live among the sturdy Oak, the towering Cypress and the waving, native tallgrass. A place to walk, ride, swim, golf, paddle.
