Marking the start of Alcudia Bay, Alcanada is a peaceful place with a couple of restaurants, an 18-hole golf course, a pine fringed beach, and a lighthouse island, a short wade or swim from the shore. On the seafront, at the edge of the village, Ca’n Marina is a large and lovely villa with the feel of an elegant beach house. Interior décor is a cool and calm blend of contemporary chic and sea-salt driftwood style, where sandstone floors, lime-washed beams and chalk white walls frame spacious rooms furnished in soft neutrals.Outdoor living is equally inviting, with chill-out areas on covered and open terraces, a shaded dining area with a chunky rustic table, a hammock slung from sunshade posts in the terrace, and loungers around an infinity pool, all gazing out to the blue of the bay. Spread over three floors, the villa has air conditioning, satellite TV, WiFi and table tennis and TV room with ample selection of DVDs. A New England style kitchen and airy living/dining room are at ground level; five bedrooms fill the upper floor; and the basement with a sitting room and a billiard room. Cook service could add an extra level of luxury here. The pebbly beach of Alcanada is just below the villa.
