Don’t let luxury villa San Rafael’s neo-classical, colonnaded exterior fool you – inside, it’s a thoroughly modern hideaway. On this island getaway, the kitchen walls are covered in kisses, there are sci-fi-esque sculptures in the dining room, and Jacuzzis in some bedrooms. Artwork is bold and modern throughout this grown-up residence, but there’s no ‘style over substance’ here: guests can swim indoors or outdoors, raid the special wine fridge, or hit the beach at Puerto Portals.
