thesuites Ibiza Can Basso, Ibiza, Spain
Two centuries traditional house to rest in calm
Can Basso, a luxurious six-bedroom villa located just minutes away from the bustling, seaside holiday village of Santa Eulalia, but has the feeling of being worlds away in the quiet countryside.
Each of the beautiful bedrooms, some were former stables in their previous incarnation, others entirely new builds, could easily be a bedroom in a stylish boutique hotel, each with its own uniquely designed suites. Think wooden ceilings where each and every beam has been handcrafted to fit in harmony with one another; perfectly formed windows and skylights delicately playing with natural light, perfectly complemented by chic, exposed hanging bulbs and quirky decorating details such as the use of goat skins hung from Sabina pegs, an industrial style sinks and tubs, wardrobes painted the exact shade of olive to match the tree outside the window. Modernity truly comes into play in the kitchen and living areas, where state-of-the-art technology is discreetly hidden within cabinets built into walls and former barn doors, and floor to ceiling glass windows serve to highlight the stunning exterior view. The swimming pool – presided over by an ancient, twisted olive tree – glistens like a natural pond, perfectly reflected in the windows of the villa and a beautiful outdoor dining area is set upon former railroad tracks, sanded back to their original hue. A perfectly manicured lawn echoes the clean, sleek lines of the pool and concrete decking area surrounding it, contrasted by the wild, colorful countryside surrounding it. Can Basso was refurbished and decorated by the interior designer Francis Dimmers. It’s all about comfort and integrating the property in the island style and landscape. It is ideal for large families, friends and groups seeking a high-end, yet relaxed, private and intimate location for time together, special occasions and/or retreats.
