With its a scenic garden within eyeshot of the sea and barely 10 minutes from Ibiza Town, and even less to the marina, this former farmstead certainly scores high on setting. A stroll down a scenic footpath also takes you to S’estanyol Beach, complete with charming Cala Bonita chiringuito and secluded cove. An abundance of flora-filled outside space really makes the villa shine, too, while adding all the top-end comforts you’d expect from a luxury-level stay in Ibiza.
Few luxury villas on Ibiza showcase the island’s outstanding natural beauty quite like Can Flores – while still being within easy striking distance of Ibiza Town. Most of its 3,500-square-metre plot has been carefully landscaped into a wonderland of Mediterranean flora. Garden paths are flanked by fragrant clusters of lavender and rosemary, while scented citrus and ancient olive trees dot gently tiered terraces. It’s a rather magical scene, and all within eyeshot of a strip of shimmering Mediterranean Sea.
Once little more than a derelict ruin, the old finca has been beautifully restored in keeping with traditional island architecture – a low-rise series of soft-edge cuboids that flow elegantly into each other. Pine beams and reclaimed timber bring some of the rustic farmhouse back to life, while polished concrete floors and Crittall doors dressed with linen add contemporary style. Interiors throughout have been designed and decorated with a carefully considered, yet subtle combination of top-quality touches like handwoven rugs and original artworks. Even by Ibiza standards, it really is quite the understated stunner.
Life here is meant to be lived outdoors, and there’s no shortage of places to do just that. The villa’s centrepiece is its lovely swimming pool, long enough for morning laps or just families floating about in the sunshine; it can also be heated if you need to take the chill off over cooler months. Poolside you even have your own ‘beach’ if you want to feel sand between your toes, or there’s a wood-decked marquee with space for both lounging and dining. There’s a big circular trampoline here, too, perfect for when the kids want to off some steam.
Inside at the heart of things is the kitchen, a charming modern-rustic space kitted out with a cornucopia of appliances, from Nespresso machine and juicer to Lacanche oven and SubZero fridge-freezer. The kitchen connects directly to a covered outdoor dining table seating up to 12, plus there’s an outside barbecue area next to the marquee. A cosy lounge indoors offers the chance to curl up on the sofa with a movie and log fire.
The villa has just three bedrooms, sleeping up to six in total. Each is bright and simply styled, with top-quality bedding and snazzy touches like vintage-style Marshall speakers and premium Bamford toiletries. One room offers fabulous in-built bunk beds that kids will love. Extra staff accommodation is also available on request.
