Launched in 2015, the ITV2 dating show saw Jon Clarke and Hannah Elizabeth take home the big prize.
At the time, the contestants had no idea how big the reality series would become, which made it great television.
From the loud and incessant frolics in the shared rooms to the endless rows of screams erupting as the islanders chain-smoked in the designated smoking area, it was an iconic piece of TV.
Although winner Jon proposed to Hannah during the show, the couple soon broke off their engagement and went their separate ways.
The second season was filmed from June to July 2016 and was arguably the best season of Love Island ever made.
Here we were introduced to now-married Alex and Olivia Bowen, Scott Thomas, Kady McDermott, Malin Andersson, Rykard Jenkins and of course the winners, Cara De La Hoyde and Nathan Massey.
The villa, which hosted more than fifty competitors at the time, has five huge bedrooms, a hot tub, huge floor-to-ceiling windows, an incredible man-made beach pool, numerous landscaped garden terraces and outdoor pools. a huge outdoor kitchen.
Engel & Völkers, the estate agency behind the property listing, has priced it at €3,650,000 (£3.1million), describing the famous old TV as a “prestigious natural stone villa visible from afar in the landscape near Ses Salines”.
They promise that “the vibe of beach life is guaranteed at this uniquely styled property,” pointing to the “sensational pool” that was the exact spot where Love Island’s first coupling ceremonies took place.
It was also the place where Nathan Massey flew Cara De La Hoyde back to propose, exactly two years after the day they met.
The listing says rooms in the villa are “flooded with light”, calling it an “unparalleled architectural gem”.
Fans of the show will remember the huge ground floor open-plan living space, which led to the pool through floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors.
Unbeknownst to Love Island fans, the property actually had four huge bedrooms on the ground floor of the property, each with its own private bathroom.
Upstairs is where the magic happened, with the only master suite transformed into a shared living space, with up to 14 islanders all sharing tight double beds throughout their stay.
The property listing details what else can be found on the upper floor: “The generously sized master bedroom has its own walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom with a free-standing bath.
“A guest WC tower completes the picture at this level.”
With cameras in every corner, nothing was private during the islanders’ time in Mallorca’s paradise, but it’s safe to say that those cameras are long gone.
