Whether you’re looking to practise yoga among the pine forests or meditate within eyeshot of the legendary Es Vedrà, reset mind, body and soul at these inspiring rental villas.
Ibiza is more than Balearic beats and sundowners on the beach. The island’s reputation might lean towards the hedonistic, but you don’t have to venture far to experience its more sedate, spiritual side. Some credit it to Es Vedrà, the uninhabited limestone islet off the south-west coast. Said to be one of the most magnetic places on earth, its healing aura has been felt by many.
No matter where you find yourself, if you want to unwind and reconnect with nature, the Ibicencan landscape will oblige. These villas will set you among the most unspoilt stretches of coast and countryside. Whether it’s roof terraces primed for sunrise and sunset, infinity pools that melt into the ocean or the rustle of pine trees skirting a hillside yoga deck, our villas for rent come with everything you need for a wellness retreat to remember.
Finca La Inika, San Lorenzo
There’s off-grid, and then there’s Finca La Inika. Hugged by the mountains of Ibiza’s lesser-trodden north, it’s easy to disconnect at this sprawling estate. At its heart sits a 17th-century finca that’s been given a design-forward overhaul. Interiors are rustic and tactile, with stone basins, freestanding tubs and an earthy colour palette. But it’s outside where relaxation really tops the agenda. Beyond the saltwater pool and scenic terraces, you’ll find a dedicated wellness area and tipi for spiritual ceremonies, surrounded by fragrant orange, almond and sweet carob trees. Meditation or stretches done for the day, unwind at the open-air cinema or the sound-proofed party cave. For an altogether different type of endorphin hit, there’s also a football pitch.
Finca La Inika is available to rent from €50,000 per week
Can Alamar, San Rafael
Tennis more your thing? This rural estate comes with its own grass court – plus south-facing terraces with views that stretch over citrus groves. Post tournament, toast the winner at the al fresco bar, or soothe aching muscles with a massage in the Mongolian yurt. Passed down through the same family for five decades, there’s an honest, comfortable feel at Can Alamar – all thick, whitewashed walls and smooth terracotta, with quiet nooks and convivial communal areas. For a more sedate retreat, there’s a covered yoga deck. Or take your pick from two pools, skirted by soaring cypress trees.
Can Alamar is available to rent from € 7,250 per week
Finca Encanto, San Miguel
Feel the stress melt away at Finca Encanto. The former monastery’s pine-surrounded setting is as soothing as they come – though its sauna, massage room and yoga studio make sure nothing is left to chance. Given its history, this is an apt choice for anyone looking to get in touch with their spiritual side. Sabina beams and open fireplaces lend a rustic simplicity to the interiors. Outside, two pools – one saltwater, one eco – a pergola and an al fresco dining area that seats 20 offer ample spots for quiet contemplation or group reflection. Note the glass-walled studio for stretching sessions backdropped by panoramic views. With a housekeeper on hand to sort the shopping, meals and daily cleaning, you can truly immerse yourself in the task at hand.
Finca Encanto is available to rent from €26,650 per week
Finca Alma, Ibiza Town
Yoga deck? Tick. Gym? Tick. Thermal spa? Tick. Tennis court? Tick. When it comes to wellness, Finca Alma delivers. Set in five hectares close to Ibiza Town, it offers peace and tranquillity in abundance. Native trees circle the plot, putting you within touching distance of nature. Floor-to-ceiling picture windows bring the greenery inside to amplify the sense of calm. Turn down the tempo further in the reading room or the host of chillout spaces dotted about the plot, designed for reflection. Privacy is assured here, but for anyone wanting to truly escape – from daily life or fellow retreat mates – make a beeline for the separate garden bedroom suite.
Finca Alma is available to rent from €20,000 per week
La Verna, Es Cubells
With its open-air yoga deck and rooftop pool with sea views, few locations are as conducive to relaxation as La Verna. Inside the five-bedroom villa, soothing chalk-white walls and tadelakt plaster provide the traditional charm, while discreet technology (such as an indoor and outdoor Sonos system) brings things into the 21st century. Whatever soundtrack you choose for your workout – DJ mixes or the rustle of pine trees – set a pace to suit you. Sunrise or sunset, outside living is given undivided attention here. Catch the first rays on the yoga platform, while away afternoons gazing towards Formentera on shaded day beds, and savour evenings spent dining al fresco.
La Verna is available to rent from €12,750 per week
