Sleeps 10/11 (5 bedrooms / 2.5 bathrooms) Villa Can Xicona is a charming historic townhouse that has been completely restored to create a delightful and high quality holiday home complete with large 11m x 4m private swimming pool, 600sqm beautiful gardens and attractive sunny terraces.
The house has been lovingly restored to a high standard and cleverly mixes old original features like solid stone walls, exposed wood beamed ceilings and some of the original flooring with modern touches such as polished cement floors and skylights. The bathrooms and kitchen are modern and brand new.
Villa Can Xicona is very conveniently located in a quiet neighbourhood on the edge of the bustling market town of Sant Pere de Ribes, just a short stroll from all of the town's cafes, bars, restaurants and supermarkets. Whats more, the house is only a 5-minute drive from the world renowned seaside resort of Sitges with its endless amenities and beautiful golden sandy beaches.
The cosmopolitan city of Barcelona is just 40 minutes away by car or a direct bus ride within 50 minutes and there are other numerous world class attractions within an hour or so drive.
The house has a great bakery very close by for fresh croissants and baguettes first thing in the morning and an excellent traditional butchers (Can Manel) with home made meats and organic produce close by. There is a bus stop less than a 10-minute walk that provides quick and easy access to Sitges, Barcelona, Vilanova and the airport.
A pleasant surprise when entering the house is the sense of light and space that you would not expect in an old townhouse. This has been created through the clever design that incorporates a central mezzanine design as well as skylights and enlarged windows.
The house is entered down a few steps and into a spacious and sunny courtyard leading to the front door. The entrance opens into a spacious mezzanine style hallway that forms the hub of the house. The hallway has access to the living area and the open plan kitchen/diner. There are also stairs leading up to the gallery style landing where all the bedrooms are located.
The living room is simply furnished with a large and comfortable L-Shaped sofa, coffee table and flat screen TV. There are french windows giving access to the outside.
