Ibiza


Far more than just a party island, villa holidays in Ibiza serve up bucketloads of bohemian spirit. Encircled by the best beaches in the Mediterranean, this diminutive Spanish island exudes a rich Balearic history and quirky character that welcomes friends and families alike. 

For all-out escapism, hilltop villas are a haven of relaxation. Sleepy strolls through orange groves to the local market are often as raucous as it gets! However, this laidback ambience is balanced by the island’s pluckier side – where rip-roaring water sports and big-name DJs offer a chance to let your hair down every day of the week. 

Wherever you lay your head, you’re never far from a good time on holiday in Ibiza.

The living is easy on Ibiza’s beaches. The white sands of Playa d’en Bossa, the longest beach on the island, are a place to see and be seen. There’s forever fun to be had here, whether it’s mini golf, kite surfing or slurping sangria on the seafront promenade.

It’s possible to sink into soft sands without the crowds too. Las Salinas is a stunning sweep of a beach perched on the southernmost tip of Ibiza. Surrounded by salt flats and pine forest, there’s always a peaceful place to lay your towel. 

Away from the big boys, many beaches blend effortlessly into the craggy coastline. Coves like Cala Llenya and Cala Mastella feature little more than crystal clear waters and a ramshackle beach bar serving freshly-from-the-boat fish. Bliss.

Whether you prefer the island’s unspoilt side or to stay in the thick of the action, our villa rentals in Ibiza cater for all tastes. No one would blame you for spending all holiday long unwinding by the beach, but travellers with itchy feet will find activities galore at their fingertips. 

Dalt Vita is Ibiza’s atmospheric Old Town and a UNESCO World Heritage Site famed for its unique architecture. A short ferry ride away, Es Vedra is a stupendous limestone outcrop that’s shrouded in mystery. Go for the breathtaking views, stay for the sunset. 

When night falls, party animals flock to Ibiza Town, San Antonio and Playa d’en Bossa. Make sure you’ve had an afternoon siesta, because the revelry continues ’til sunrise.

Artisan markets (often called ‘hippy markets’) might just be Ibiza’s calling card. These shopping meccas are both friendly on the pocket and chock-full of personality. Stalls groan under the weight of colourful keepsakes, while the welcome addition of live music invites you to linger a while. Many holiday homes in Ibiza have one nearby.

A well-known celebrity hotspot, Marina Botafoch is a millionaire’s playground complete with designer boutiques overlooking the yachts. Meanwhile, Ibiza Town keeps things simple with an array of well-known fashion brands. San Antonio’s boutiques are a treasure trove of knick-knacks. 

One thing’s for sure: Ibiza’s diverse shopping scene is a reflection of the island’s vivid personality. Make sure to save some space in your bag.

Proudly Spanish but with a modern twist, Ibiza’s culinary scene is part of its appeal. High on your hit list should be tapas. These dainty plates of deliciousness cater for all types of diet. Whether you’re mad about meatballs or simply want to pig out on patatas bravas, order a selection and find a new favourite. 

International dining has also boomed in recent years. Japanese, Italian, Mexican, even good ol’ British pubs offer the opportunity to eat your way around the world. Just don’t forget to tuck into a classic paella de marisco before you go. 

Eating out may be a treat, but a home-cooked meal in your Ibiza villa is hard to beat. Nip to the market, cook up a storm and coincide your scoffing with the sunset for memory-making at its finest.

It’s not just grown-ups who get all the fun on the White Island. Family-friendly villas in Ibiza deliver a roster of benefits, starting with sparkling swimming pools and rising all the way up to private playgrounds and sports courts. 

Whatever your budget, sunny outdoor space is a given. You may even be treated to a panoramic sea view! And after busy days sandcastle-building on Ibizan beaches, modern amenities like Wi-Fi and air conditioning make bedtime a breeze. 

Santa Eulalia’s broad sandy beaches are a big hit with families. So too are the glass-bottomed boat tours and snorkelling safaris that depart from San Antonio Bay – make sure to book in advance.
