For a long time, Ibiza was considered a hippie Island, but today it is a meeting place of the international jet set, who come here to live, play and party. The list of famous visitors is long and includes Hollywood star Leonardo di Caprio, top athlete Bastian Schweinsteiger and supermodel Kate Moss. But the 570-square-kilometre island to the southwest of Mallorca has much more to offer than glamour and glory: picturesque beaches, lovely bays and romantic landscapes invite to relax and recuperate.
"Is there enough space on an island for so much glory?" Spanish newspaper "El País" asked, referring to the international popularity of the small Balearic island. In 2015, private air traffic increased by 8.5 %, making it the top Balearic destination. This is not surprising, because many of the stars and starlets return again and again. And some even stay on. Luxury properties like this modern villa on a 258,000 m² tract of land are in demand like never before.
“Both our residential property shops closed 30 percent more sales than in 2014. Moreover, the average sale price rose significantly,” reported Florian Fischer, Managing Partner of Engel & Völkers on Ibiza. The demand for real estate remains high. “Prestigious villas and apartments in top locations are very easy to rent out in high season and present an attractive investment opportunity,” said Florian Fischer.
With views like this, it is not surprising that demand is high. The views stretch across the north-east of the island and the azure sea all the way to Formentera. A perfect spot for a sundowner with friends or family. There are seven bedrooms in the main house and one bedroom is located in an annex which lies even higher up in total tranquility. Large terraces and an infinity pool offer ample space to entertain or just to enjoy the tranquility and spectacular views. A very special luxury place in a unique natural setting.
The picturesque village of Santa Gertrudis in the centre of the island is also situated close to nature. Many painters, artists and musicians have settled here to find inspiration from its unique atmosphere. Although the village has grown steadily in recent years, it has retained its traditional charm.
This modern Villa is in a very idyllic and quiet location close to the beautiful village of Santa Gertrudis with restaurants and shops. The Villa has been tastefully designed by using high-quality materials. Already when entering one is impressed by the living/dining room with a ceiling height of eight meters and overlooking the swimming pool and the countryside to the sea. The main house boasts three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, one with access from the outside. A gym and sufficient storage rooms are also available. The property is surrounded by a large plot with Mediterranean vegetation.
In view of the picturesque landscape and the high quality of life, it is no wonder that the demand for such top properties is steadily increasing. Ibiza will remain an international hotspot for properties intended for private use and holiday rental. The high demand for premium homes from abroad is bringing stability to the market,” Florian Fischer concluded.
