If countryside villas had beauty pageants, this one would be a queen. Featuring a rustic blonde stone façade with turquoise-blue shuttered windows, this stunner is set among 14,000 square metres of private gardens. The interiors are a mix of unfussy furnishings and the occasional piece of vintage furniture, and you can easily accommodate the entire family across five bedrooms, each fit for a siesta. Kick off the day with traditional Spanish breakfast — drizzle a slice of crusty bread with olive oil and top it off with chopped tomatoes — then walk out into the stunning garden where you can relax under the dappled shade of the almond trees (which blossom between January and February), lap lazily in the gorgeous pool or sip sangria on the terrace. There's an annexe that houses a summer kitchen with a veranda for those languorous afternoon meals, as well as a treehouse that will keep those short enough to fit through the door entertained for hours. If you can tear yourself away, a ten-minute drive will take you to the shops and restaurants of Santanyí, while the coastline with its beautiful beaches is a further five minutes away.
