As you approach the rustic facade of this secluded villa, you could be forgiven for assuming a week of back-to-basics living awaited. However, once you go through the doors, you'll see that you were sorely mistaken — inside you'll be greeted by the type of sleek design that wouldn't be out of place in an urban apartment. There are still nods to its heritage in the shape of exposed beams and quirky wood-carved artwork, but they're matched by cool marble floors, exuberantly coloured bathrooms and an open staircase taking you up to the bedrooms. Out in the garden, you can spend countless days soaking up the Mediterranean sun — when it gets too hot, refresh yourself with a dip in the pool or retreat inside for a relaxing siesta. The nearest beach is a ten-minute drive away, and so are the shops of nearby Santanyí in case you need to stock up on essentials. In the evening, you can pop into one of the village taverns or if you prefer privacy, fire up the barbecue and serve dinner out under the veranda.
Home truths: *A minimum stay of four nights is required to book this property
