Completed in 2005 this stunning and beautifully-executed estate home is surrounded by its own 2 hectares of established walled gardens with manicured lawns and various seating areas for our guests to relax.
The 12 foot electronic gates open to the private drive way leading to the Arabic façade of the villa.  The elegant front doors give entrance to the elaborately decorated reception hall leading to a grand staircase accessing the two floors above.  The ground floor comprises the formal dining room with seating for 18 and tall French doors opening to the covered terrace which surrounds the house.  The gourmet kitchen has Moroccan lamps, high windows for lots of natural light and is fully equipped to Chef Standards. Access from the kitchen is to a covered patio just outside, perfect for morning coffee. The main lounge is decorated in cool shades of blue with silver touches and Moorish tiling.  There are three comfortable sofas, satellite TV and WIFI. Across the hall there is in addition a games room complete with pool table and sofa.
The large pool is surrounded by gardens and sun deck and has sun loungers and table and chairs.
On the first floor there is the beautiful music room lounge, four air-conditioned en suite bedrooms each accessing the communal terrace which surrounds the house.  The Sultan master suite is on the second floor along with three other en-suite bedrooms, all have air-conditioning. All the bedrooms are fully air-conditioned and charmingly furnished in their own colour themes.
This substantial home is a ten minute drive from the prestigious resort of Sitges and offers secure privacy and tranquillity. Elegant interiors, serene and restrained, and the sublime combination of old and new in a luxurious, secluded setting make Can Xicarro a unique and treasured holiday retreat.

" We stayed at Can Xicarro for a month in the summer with all our family; children aged between 12 and 5, grandparents in their 70s and many other family members. We received a great welcome and John was on hand to show us round and give us advice on shopping, trips out etc. Our stay was wonderful, particularly since the children had so much space and were able to run around the garden, swim in the enormous pool and play tennis. The house is beautiful and has everything required for a great holiday, including a great housekeep who came in every day armed with fresh bread and pan au chocolate! A couple of times John arranged for a chef to come in Cook a fabulous dinner - traditional paella and a Moroccan tagine, both were fabulous and the kitchen was left spotless. "

" We had a wonderful time thanks. Can Xicarro is an amazing place for a holiday, totally unique and really magical. John, the owner, went out of his way to accommodate us - in particular we had one of our party in a wheelchair who he really went the extra mile to cater for. The villa is huge which meant that our large party was able to sleep and relax really comfortably without being on top of each other. It is also beautifully decorated but at the same time homely, a great place to chill out with a large group "

" We recently stayed at Can Xicarro to celebrate my upcoming 60th Birthday. With my two Sons and 19 other friends, Can Xicarro was well situated to enable us to go into Barcelona to watch the match at the Camp Nou. We had a fantastic trip - As I went through all the rooms (and the Casita), I was delighted that NONE of my guests had a bad room. The great photos of the Villa give you a feel for the place, but actually don't do it justice. Everybody was impressed. The owner, John, went the extra mile, even shipping in an extra Beer Fridge for our short stay, in case the other three were full!! He also arranged for a BBQ Chef to cook and serve for us on the Friday evening. Johns other staff were equally as nice and could not do enough for us. Sunday, we walked down to the picturesque harbour for our Evening meal, before returning to the Games Room, to finish off a splendid long weekend. Defiantly somewhere worth revisiting. "

" This is a BIG thank you from David and I for all the help and support you gave us when we held his birthday in August. Everyone had a magical time and loved the Villa and really appreciated your assistance - above and beyond the call of duty from grocery shopping to when suitcases went missing to sending ham stands back to Aus!!! You were very obliging and nothing seemed too much trouble - you were a pleasure to do business with! "

" This place is truly amazing. We booked it for a special holiday for our extended family (18 of us ranging in age from 10 to 87) and everyone absolutely loved it. I have to say that it looked too good to be true on the website so I took the precaution of going on an inspection trip a couple of months before we were due to arrive, just to make sure it was suitable, and we were delighted to find that it not only matched the description on the website but exceeded all our expectations. After our trip, we indicated various preferences to the amiable Scottish owner, John Duffy, such as additional beds in particular rooms to suit our group, and he accommodated all our requests without fuss. He also helped us arrange a private chef (Jonathan Rodrigues) who provided a sumptuous dinner on three of the nights we stayed. That was a real bonus. Jonathan was not only a tremendous chef but very flexible in catering for a wide range of tastes. He did the shopping for the wine and food for the meal, set the table (inside or outside on the terrace as we preferred), served dinner and cleared up afterwards. The property has great character but has also been completely modernised and fitted out with a range of facilities that really enhanced our holiday. There was everything from tennis to table football but the pool was the centre-piece, surrounded by plenty of comfortable loungers, tables and chairs with umbrellas and shaded areas. The house is set in beautiful grounds with a pond, barbecue area, lawn big enough to practise golf and other nooks and crannies with additional seating, not to mention the separate casita overlooking the tennis court. Inside, the house is naturally cool and the air conditioning is efficient. There are several reception rooms and plenty of space for everyone to find a quiet corner to listen to music or read or play pool. There is wifi in the main Blue Room but it also works outside on part of the terrace. The bedrooms, all ensuite, are spacious and the beds are all comfortable. There is a wrap-around balcony that extends all around the first floor with views not only over the gardens but to the sea beyond. The approach to the property through an area that is unattractive can be disconcerting but the grounds are completely secure, surrounded by a high wall and accessed through electronic gates. The house is cleaned and beds made every day and the gardens and pool are also tended every morning. The whole package was just perfect for what we wanted. "

" Our stay was wonderful, and perfect for a family of our size, and you have two excellent workers in Vladimir and Martha. We enjoyed the grounds, beautiful, and you were so resourceful and helpful. Best Sanjay” "
