Can Zama more than matches its rock-star looks with an impressive range of top-notch features. Just across a stretch of lawn lies the pool area, with its 18m x 4m of shimmering water, sleek infinity edge and views across the surrounding tree line. Heating takes the chill off over cooler months, and there are loads of cushioned loungers and shaded daybeds for poolside flopping. For outside dining, a huge pergola has a table for up to 20 and a charcoal barbecue for table-side grilling. You can even cook with produce from the garden’s own harvest of fruit and vegetables.
Elsewhere outdoors, various beanbags, wooden chaise and hammocks provide numerous spots under the dappled shade of olive and pine trees – there’s even a bar hidden in the forest great for late night revelry. Another popular chill-out zone is a large sunken lounge with outdoor fireplace and SONOS sound system for instant vibes. For sundowners, however, it’s hard to beat the villa’s huge rooftop terrace – sunsets are nothing short of magical here, and the perfect place for sunrise yoga sessions, too.
Each of the bedrooms has been individually styled by famed interior designer Rosarinho Gabriel, from scandi-chic to the more sumptuous. All open to outside space, as well as their own bathroom with regularly replenished, eco-friendly liquid Marseille soap from La Compagnie de Provence. In-room tech also comes high-end, with the likes of B&W docks, L’Occitane bath products and smart TVs. For the big-screen experience you can snuggle up with a movie in the villa’s comfy cinema room, complete with full Sky package, all UK channels and loads of movies.
Underfloor heating and open fires in the lounge and bedrooms makes Can Zama ideal a truly year-round villa that can be enjoyed over the coolest months. What’s more, it benefits from a house manager and daily maid service on hand to run errands, make drinks and lay out breakfast each morning.
