This charming country cottage offers that ideal combination of a secluded rural setting and close proximity to a typical town that offers all amenities. Moreover, its use as the owners’ principal residence outside the rental season means that it exudes the welcoming atmosphere and offers the many comforts of a much loved home.
Just over 1km from the old market town of Alaior, an unmade lane winds its way downhill and ends at Caseta Blanca, which sits snugly beneath the hillside and looks out across a beautifully unspoilt vista of gently undulating slopes covered with the lush green leaves of fruit trees. It is this pleasing outlook that can be enjoyed from the covered and open terraces, the fenced pool and the stone built barbecue that occupy the property’s external space and make this such a pleasant spot for outdoor living.
Inside, a colour scheme of rich, warm hues blends perfectly with solid wood furnishings, exposed ceiling beams and terracotta floors to create a look that instantly appeals and creates the ambience of a welcoming home that is both smart and cosy. At the same time, eye-catching features such as the stone archway that connects the dining and sitting rooms add character.
Within easy reach of the house is not only the typical whitewashed town of Alaior, which can be reached on foot in around 20 minutes along an unmade rural track, but also the long sandy beach of Son Bou. A drive of just 5.3km will bring you to the 3km stretch of pale golden sands that form Menorca'’s longest beach.
