This fantastic former farm in the countryside of Cap de Barberia on Formentera Island, the smallest and most southerly of the Balearic Islands of Spain, was completely renovated in 2008. Casa Rita lies on a 6,700 square meters (72,118 square foot) field with a beautiful swimming pool, multi-leveled terraces, lounge seating and built-ins with bold punches of color and spectacular views out to the sea. With 3,767 square feet (350 square meters) of living space and 7 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, the interior design promotes rest and tranquility with the addition of wood furnishings, fresh fabrics and a light color palette, as well as highlighting the views of the landscape with windows and doors. Interior spaces are open to the exterior to allow cool breezes to come in from the ocean. Plastered walls, concrete flooring throughout most of the spaces and plenty of wood beams adorn the ceiling. The living room features a large fireplace with an upstairs loft and a door that connects to the outside. Via
Wood beams thatched with pine branches on the dining room ceiling.
