Casa Can Maderus details
You’ll find this Mediterranean country house perched on a hilltop, surrounded by pretty gardens and pine forest. Suffice to say, the setting is really peaceful. Better yet, you’re less than a five-minute drive from the shops, restaurants and beach of Santa Eulalia.
From the outside, Casa Can Maderus is just as good-looking as its Secret Garden-esque backdrop. Head down the stone steps and you’ll come to the swimming pool. It’s cocooned by a lawn and sand-coloured rockery, and has palm trees lining its edges. It’s a really pretty set-up – especially when it’s all lit up come nightfall. Best of all, you get fabulous views of the countryside from here.
The property itself is a large whitewashed building complete with a wooden banister that runs alongside the upper floor balconies. The whole place is flanked by huge palm trees, and you’ll find homely touches dotted around the grounds, such as a rocking chair on the ground-floor terrace.
Inside, the décor takes a leaf from the traditional design book. Think sky-high beamed ceilings, whitewashed walls bordered by cobbled stone, and terracotta-tiled floors throughout. And it’s all accessorised with chunky wooden furniture and contemporary artwork.
As for the bedrooms, there are four of them – two master doubles and two twins. They’re dressed in powder-blue tones, and all feature wooden floors, wall-to-wall wardrobes, and a French balcony or terrace that makes the most of the views. Modern touches, meanwhile, come in the form of air-conditioning and WiFi.
