Close to the sleepy village of Sant Llorenc de Balafia, Villa Los Amigos is a prime spot for those craving some downtime. The six-bedroom, single-storey property is inspired by California’s sleek architecture; the facade is complemented by minimalist and supremely chic interiors – think concrete floors, Scandi-style wood panelling, and dark charcoal accents, combined with beautiful wicker and rattan furnishings. A wonderful base for special celebrations, this uber-cool villa boasts a fully equipped gym, an outdoor pool, a spacious al-fresco dining area, as well as cosy spaces to take five in the shade. What more could you ask for? Somewhere to enjoy a post-prandial under the stars perhaps? As you’d expect, it has that covered too.
Looking for some high-end bohemia? Villa Wendy is for you. Nature lover’s will simply adore this multi-level property set within lush green countryside. The stone villa is well-suited to families or a group of friends: each of the six bedrooms come with king-sized beds, ensuite bathrooms, and private terraces. The best room? We’d go with the master suite, mainly for its lavish bathtub. The main living areas are, as you’d expect, serene and stylish. Rustic features – cowhide rugs, wooden beamed ceilings, and a traditional fireplace – suit the otherwise clean, contemporary decor. Enjoy sweeping panoramas of the sea from the expansive outdoor space, complete with al-fresco dining area – which will undoubtedly see some lavish Ibizan lunches and epic dinner parties over the course of one’s stay. Activities-wise, the palm-fringed infinity pool provides endless entertainment and is guaranteed to light up your Instagram feed long after your holiday has come to an end.
Plotted in the idyllic region of Es Cubells, Villa Madison enjoys total seclusion and privacy, whilst remaining within easy reach of the island’s best beaches and the scenic streets of San José. After settling into this stylish, five-bedroom retreat, drop towel at one of the many sumptuous day beds dotted around Villa Madison’s pool. Offering relaxation on tap, sit out and admire the sweeping coastal views on sunny afternoons, before tucking into a light lunch on the terrace. Exploring the three-storey property fully will take some time; read: there’s more than enough room for your close circle of friends to decamp here over the summer. Design lovers will be smitten with Villa Madison’s mixed woods, steel finishings, and oodles of light, which exude a slightly retro vibe, particularly in the lovely dining area and kitchen. Side note: all five bedrooms come with billowy canopied beds as well as private ensuite bathrooms; there are no bad rooms here.
On the island’s southwest coast, Villa Paolo cuts a palatial shape. Unfolding over several levels, this spacious villa is the perfect place to gather all the gang. Open plan, Villa Paolo’s free-flowing spaces snake from the XL kitchen and dining area to the light-filled lounge, where floor-to-ceiling sliding doors open out onto the terrace. The terrace is a haven for sun-worshippers, set around an infinity pool, which is flanked by sun loungers and four-poster days beds. Enjoy delicious Mediterranean-inspired feasts under the adjacent Balinese gazebo. Balinese influences extend across the property; spot the natural bamboo furnishings and stone statues of the goddess Dewi Sri dotted around the villa. When it comes time to wind down, each of the five plush bedrooms offer occupants a peaceful slumber – the opulent master suite, which boasts a sumptuous bathtub and its own terrace with panoramic views, is the best of the bunch. Awoken revived and ready to explore your surrounds? A ten-minute drive will take you to the golden sands of Cala Jondal beach.
