Slow and serene, Ibiza’s off-season months are the ideal time to visit and hit reset. Here, we’ve rounded up our favourite rental properties in which to embrace winter and spring in the White Isle.
Ibiza’s low season is something of a sleeping beauty. With unplugged music sets, deserted beaches and milder temperatures, the island is at its most exclusive during the winter and spring months.
Whether you plan to discover new hikes with Ibiza Outdoors, try your hand at one of Numero 74 L’Atelier’s craft workshops or indulge in some retail therapy in Santa Gertrudis, we’ve got the keys to bohemian fincas and state-of-the-art villas to rent during your stay.
Finca La Inika, San Lorenzo
Nestled in a tiny Ibicencan village, Finca La Inika is surrounded by established trees – fragrant orange, almond and sweet carob – that give a feeling of seclusion. With architecture and interiors by Ted Milano and Studio C, the finca is a perfect balance of traditional and contemporary design: picture the soft curve of original arches paired with whitewashed walls and terracotta tiles. Nine bedrooms, a saltwater swimming pool, football pitch and a sound-proofed party cave complete this storied Balearic escape. For an evening of fine dining, nearby San Juan Road is lined with an eclectic mix of restaurants – including the much-loved La Paloma.
La Verna, Es Cubells
Spread across six sun-drenched levels, La Verna pairs meticulous interior styling with a thoroughly relaxed holiday atmosphere. Chalk-white walls and 200-year-old Canadian barnwood provide the traditional Ibicencan charm, while a discreet Sonos System brings celebrations into the 21st century. Start your morning at the outdoor fitness area and yoga deck or take in the sweeping sea views from the heated rooftop pool. Embrace the island quietude along the sandy stretches of nearby Port Des Torrent, before returning home for a nightcap at the chiringuito home bar.
Villa Oasis, Sa Caleta
Recently refurbished with contemporary design, Villa Oasis’ modernist silhouette gives way to views of the southern seas. Dedicated to relaxation, play and wellness, this five-bedroom property is equipped with a state-of-the-art gym, tennis and pétanque court and a large games room. The dramatic red cliffs of nearby Sa Caleta beach offer a striking backdrop for coastal walks, followed by a seafood feast at Restaurant Sa Caleta. Open year-round, this venerated family-run institution showcases live music under a canopy of twisted Juniper trees.
Villa Elevado, Roca Llisa
Located in the highly-desired Roca Llisa development and with uninterrupted views out to Formentera, this six-bedroom villa is set to soothe. Crafted by Jaime Serra of ADV Architecture and Ibiza Interiors, it embraces the beauty of its forested setting. Scenic backdrops prevail – from the well-equipped al fresco kitchen with a Wolf gas barbecue to its indoor counterpart, where picture windows stretch across three sides. Avid golfers can make use of the gated community’s two courses, while others explore the neighbourhoods of nearby Jesús and Cala Llonga. To unwind, pack a picnic and follow the hill down to the unspoiled cove of Cala Olivera.
Finca Encanto, San Miguel
For a private getaway in Ibiza’s unspoiled rural north, look no further than Finca Encanto. This rescued 400-year-old monastery is fantastically secluded, reached by a long winding driveway. It’s a home tailor-made for gatherings and entertaining, featuring a main house with six bedroom suites, two staff suites and a separate staff house. With interior décor co-created by the homeowners and designers Diego Alonso and Alexeja Pozzoni, the finca remains cosy even when outside temperatures dip. At its core, Finca Encanto promotes health and mindfulness with a sauna, yoga studio, Balinese-style garden and massage room.
Finca La Bella Vita, San Juan
Old meets new at Finca La Bella Vita, a 300-year-old finca that’s been innovatively updated with modern luxuries. Characterful Sabina beams, cool stone floors and exposed original brickwork create an uplifting feeling throughout, while the secluded garden is a tranquil setting for kicking back in the Moorish sofa area. Set in the rugged northern hills, the villa is a springboard for adventurous travellers looking to hike, swim and cycle their way around the island. After a day of horse riding or zip wiring, return home to the six bedroom suites, each finished with a calming neutral palette.
Villa Escondida, Es Cubells
Views don’t come more postcard-worthy than Villa Escondida, a luxury front-line property overlooking the bay of Es Cubells. There are no shortage of entertaining spaces either, with plenty of chill-out areas, a plunge pool and outdoor barbecue. Each of the five bedrooms enjoy private terraces – suntrap spots for guests to unwind in peace. The neighbouring coves are ideal for divers and snorkelers, or for a taste of Ibiza’s heritage, follow Dalt Vila’s cobbled streets as they wind up to Santa Maria d’Eivissa. Also nearby is one of Ibiza’s best kept dining secrets – Ses Boques – a rustic restaurant serving locally-sourced fish and produce.
