Can Xarraca is a spectacular hideaway with breathtaking sea views, lush private gardens and direct access to the beach. The property is situated near the village of Portinax and consists of 2 separate living areas divided by a covered courtyard.
The more recently-build part was designed by the famous Blakstad and consists of the main living room with high beamed ceilings, fireplace and comfortable sofas. French doors open on the terrace overlooking the sea and on the other side to the Moroccan courtyard garden. Double doors at the end of the living room lead to a central hall, the kitchen and the bedrooms. The master suite is located on the first floor, with a four-poster bed and a large private terrace with a fountain and views to the sea and coastal cliffs. There are two more bedrooms, a double and a twin bedroom, located on the ground floor that share a bathroom and have French doors opening to another terrace.
There is a dining area adjoining the kitchen but during the warmer months meals are usually taken outside on the terrace next to the Moroccan garden which is planted with formal box hedges and herbs. There are several other terraces at various spots around the house and gardens.
The second house is a centuries-old finca with beautiful Sabina wood ceilings and many preserved original features. On the ground floor there is a double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, a twin bedroom, a second kitchen and a small sitting area with a fireplace. Upstairs, there is a double room with a private terrace facing the sea. Next to the main house there is a large lawn dominated by two enormous palm trees and the 10 metre swimming pool, at the far end of which is a large chill-out area with lots of comfortable cushions and a canvas sunshade.
The house is air-conditioned and there is central heating for the cooler months. There is wireless Internet, satellite TV and a high-spec music system.
Access to the property from the coast road is via a remotely-controlled gate and the grounds extend right down to the seashore – it’s about 800 metres walk down to the pebble beach at Cala Xuclar or 1km to the sandy beach at Cala Xarraca. There is a private parking area with space for several vehicles.
