Contemporary hilltop villas and rustic Ibiza fincas that tick all the right boxes – our roll call of the most spectacular island homes we sold this year.
There’s nothing ordinary about the design credentials – or locations – of the Ibiza villas we sold in 2022. Set in gated estates among pine covered hills or in exclusive urbanisations perched at the sea’s edge, these unique spaces are feats of architecture.
Think floor-to-ceiling windows that open up traditional façades, infinity pools angled for sunrise and sunset, and soothing interiors that blend into their natural surroundings – the vision of renowned architects including Ibizaliving.
Ses Calas, Santa Eulalia
Views don’t come much better than those on offer at Ses Calas, a sprawling estate nestled in the hills above Santa Eulalia. Coast on one side, countryside on the other, soak up the panorama from one of the many terraces on offer. Named after Mexican artists Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, both the main house and accompanying guest house are bohemian in persuasion. Design flourishes from Ibizaliving anchor the interiors in the surrounding landscape – from pergolas among the treetops to stone courtyards and a palette of muted, earthy tones. At the estate’s peak, find an 18-metre pool with an enviable vantage point overlooking the ocean.
Vista Comte, Cala Comte
Set within one of Ibiza’s most picturesque coves and a gated community of just 15 villas, Vista Comte pairs its shoreline position with sustainable living. Its considered design features thermal insulation and hot water and air conditioning systems that use renewable technologies. Miele integrated appliances, Porcelanosa bathrooms and in-built Sonos speaker systems: no details have been overlooked. Plus, a private pool screened by native aloe vera and olive trees.
Villa Fantasia, Cala Llonga
There’s nothing but hills between you and the horizon at Villa Fantasia. This gated retreat has it all: two pools, two guest houses, landscaped gardens and an outdoor kitchen and bar. Expect classic finca tropes in the main house, from thick stone walls to exposed Sabina beams and open fireplaces. Want to immerse yourself in nature? There’s your own private woodland to explore.
Can Ambel, San Rafael
Timeless Ibicencan design meets modern sensibility at this rural villa near San Rafael. Recently refurbished, the interiors have been designed with space and light in mind (picture windows. Tick. Neutral tones. Tick). Vast decks put you among the trees, as does the elevated pool. The interplay between inside and out is effortless, from the dining room’s sliding walls to the scenic terrace accessed from the master suite. A springboard to the best of Ibiza – and a private idyll when you need it.
Vista Verde, Santa Gertrudis
A villa to put your own stamp on. Situated just outside Santa Gertrudis – the ideal setting to embrace the Balearic’s slower pace of life – find a split-level footprint that’s set up for both relaxing and entertaining. Think light-flooded interiors and palm tree-covered exteriors. An open-plan layout, clean lines and high ceilings offer a neutral blueprint that can be personalised to you. A pool, terrace and shaded outdoor seating area complete the line-up.
