4.2

Idyllic rural escape where its totally encouraged to just sit back, relax and breathe…

At first glance, it could be a farmhouse from a Hollywood movie, what with its wraparound porch, arched entrance, lush green gardens and colourful flowers, but on further inspection, this is all indeed real and a stunning representation of the “other” side of Ibiza – I’m talking peace, tranquility and total escape from reality.

Location

Just a short drive from the famous beach of Benirras, the port and cute little village of San Miguel and close to local attractions such as caves and vineyards, it’s a great base for exploring the island’s north. My favourite thing about the entire area is the abundance of pine forests making the air smell so fresh.

Bedrooms

Cool terracotta floors, chic whiten linen, stone walls and exposed beams in the ceiling – yes indeed, it’s traditional Ibicenco all the way, just the way I like it. Plus it's very quiet, I had one of the best nights sleep of my life here.

Public areas

Downstairs you’ll find a lounge area that’s generally really quiet, given that most guests go exploring by day and head out for dinner at night. There’s also WiFi and a laptop for you to use.

Eating and drinking

While there’s no official restaurant on the premises, your morning breakfast is seriously amazing – a typically Spanish feast of cold meats, cheese and fruits straight from the orchards outside. I feel corny saying it, but you can tell that so much love goes into everything here… especially the homemade lemonade! Shame there are no lunch or dinner options.

Leisure facilities

A great swimming pool is essential in rural hotels in my opinion: essential to beat the heat in peak season. This one ticks all the right boxes: big, cool and surrounded by plenty of comfortable sun beds to recline on.

Service

I felt like a princess – the hotel’s owner Joan is renowned for his hospitality and he lived up to his reputation. I want him to be my uncle so I can visit more often.

Who stays there

Mostly couples on romantic holidays or honeymoons, bohemian types and the occasional family.

Price advice

Breakfast is included in the room rate. If, like me, you’re travelling alone you get a 20 per cent discount in the low season, but unfortunately not in high. For groups, additional guests cost 60 euros, while for families, kids under 14 are charged just 36 euros.
