Can Talaias is a charming “agroturismo” with an intimate and casual vibe. It is situated on a hilltop near the village of San Carlos, Ibiza. It is the former holiday home of British actor and comic Terry-Thomas and is now run by his youngest son Cushan and his wife Laetitia. The main house was extended in Ibizan style, with thick walls and soft rounded edges, and a vast terrace to take in the sensational Mediterranean view. Gardens were added, greenhouses too, devoted to water-wise cacti and succulents. Bougainvillea, oleanders, umbrella pines and lush palms abound, and a peacock adds a touch of exotica.
The house is located in a slightly remote location (a car is recommended), yet there are innumerable beaches and coves such as Cala Mastella (with a great fish restaurant), Cala Llenya, Agua Blanca, Cala Nova, Cala Boix within a 10-minute drive – sandy, beautiful and uncrowded. If you want secret Ibiza, you’ll find it here.
The seven rooms are decorated in a stylish understated manner with a touch of bohemian and painted different colours, using creams, yellows and terracotta tones. Facilities vary, with some having large arched windows, dark wood floors, large bathrooms, gorgeous big beds and/or big terraces.
A continental breakfast is served until noon, with extras are available at a charge. Snacks are available during the day and home cooked meals for lunch or dinner are on request using produce from Talaias own gardens.
Slip into the delicious little pool, pick a beer from the honesty bar, nod off in the shade of the olive tree: few places make you feel so totally at home. The owners will go the extra length to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. They love to share the best tips on beaches, walks, restaurants, shops or help to organize activities like horse riding, diving, surfing, and golf. They can also provide mountain bikes and nice walking itineraries, guided or unguided.
Can Talaias is a family friendly hotel and kids are most welcome.
