With its bold, ultra-modern exterior, stylized interior, and proximity to the pretty fishing village of Tamariu, Villa Clarisse is the perfect choice for those who appreciate contemporary design coupled with easy walking distance to a delightful sandy beach.

At first glance, the ground floor appears to be all open-plan but closer inspection reveals cleverly designed sliding pocket doors hidden within the walls that allow the different areas to be sectioned off as desired.

Spacious and elegant, we love this dazzling property for its refreshing snow-white walls, sharp lines, funky furnishings, and, above all, the Mediterranean light that pours in through its vast floor-to-ceiling picture windows that seamlessly blend the inside with the outside where we find an extensive terrace for lounging, dining, sunbathing and, of course, taking a refreshing dip in the very chic pool.

The calm and comforting atmosphere that permeates this minimalist masterpiece continues up to the first floor where each of the four well-appointed bedrooms opens out to a sun terrace that looks across the pool towards a pine-clad hillside.

It takes only about 11 minutes to saunter down to Tamariu, a charming coastal hamlet full of character and a sprinkling of seafront restaurants. A baker and two grocery stores are open during the summer months and buses run regularly to the bustling nearby town of Palafrugell, 4.5km away, where all amenities are to be found.

  • Because of its terraced grounds and the horizontal railings of its first floor terraces, this house is not suitable for young children.
