Villa of the week: Can Benito
This perfectly restored six-bedroom finca smacks of delicious design contrasts – where old meets new; the rough and the ancient meet the seriously smooth and rustic textures are juxtaposed with contemporary cool. The house is pleasantly located near the relaxed hustle and bustle of Santa Eulalia, with a lush pool set in vast grounds so you can really get away from it all
A neutral colour palette runs throughout this magnificently reformed property, with designer touches and quirky tweaks to make your Instagram account ignite. The living space is a minimalist’s dream with deluxe designer sofas and plenty of space, leading out to a beautifully understated terrace to dine outdoors. Head through the clean lines of the breakfast bar and into a stony kitchen where a fabulous free standing sink sits in a gleaming steely island unit, contemporary stools salute antique doors and gleaming floor tiles reflect Sabina ceilings.
The bedrooms feature delicate dry stone walls and beautiful bed linen, with a few low slung pieces of modern furniture to contrast with the roughly hewn walls. Bathrooms are given an extra boost with a super modern feel. Each bedroom and bathroom suite mixes things up in its own unique way, some with glass doors and recycled benches, others sporting a thoroughly contemporary look with polished concrete and sleek fixtures and fittings.
