Life in San José Villages, Ibiza

There are three main villages in the municipality itself: San José, San Agustin, and Es Cubells. 

Boasting unique charm, local community, and a family-friendly atmosphere, San José is one of the most popular villages on the island. The typical Ibicencan town offers a number of convenient amenities, such as vibrant restaurants all year round, supermarkets, souvenir gift shops, boutiques, and fashion stores. 

Secondly, the idyllic village of Sant Agustí boasts endless views of vineyards and the surrounding countryside, making it both an architecturally impressive and peaceful setting. Sant Agustí lies on the border between San Antonio and San José, providing easy access to all the local shops, supermarkets, and restaurants, which is necessary since the village itself hosts only a few stores. Due to the very same reason, Benimussa’s countryside location, with its panorama of outstanding beauty, is highly desirable to those seeking a secluded country atmosphere and a life of authenticity.

Lastly, is Es Cubells – Ibiza’s smallest village. Even though this village crosses over with the client appeal of the south, it still offers a unique traditional culture. The village itself consists only of a white Ibicencan church and two bars nearby. A magical and extraordinary spot dotted with little coves and beaches close by, such as Ses Boques, Cala Llentrisca, Es Torrent, Porroig, and the Cala d’Hort Natural Park with its famous Es Vedra island. 


Buying a Property in San José Villages, Ibiza

San José’s main village attracts property buyers that are typically families with permanent residences or those looking for second homes during the summer. Buyers here are often drawn to the village’s authenticity, which is reflected also in its style of properties.

Clientele looking to buy a property in Sant Augusti (or Benimussa) tend to also be families and younger couples who are often searching for traditional fincas and Mediterranean-style villas with expansive grounds, plenty of outdoor living opportunities, and occasionally the potential to cultivate their own land.

Although a small, traditional village, properties in the village of Es Cubells feature more exclusive-style modern villas with spectacular views of the sea. It is no secret that the Cala d’Hort beach and the surrounding area of Es Cubells have the best views of Es Vedrà, one of the most desired requirements for luxury home buyers, which makes Es Cubells more than just a village lifestyle location.

Life in the South of San José, Ibiza

The most popular area for buyers with money to invest is undoubtedly Ses Salines, Cala Jondal, or as previously mentioned, Es Cubells. These up-market locations all offer easy access to the unspoiled countryside, Ibiza Town, and the island’s most popular beaches, as well as fashionable bars and restaurants frequented by A-list celebrities like Sa Trinxa and El Chiringuito, the famous Blue Marlin Ibiza Beach Club. These southern Ibiza spots are viewed as the finest and most attractive spots for lifestyle vacationers to enjoy an exclusive VIP status.

Buying a Property in the South of San José, Ibiza

In most cases, the properties sought in the south of San José are meant to serve as luxury second homes or as investment rental homes. The vast majority of the exclusive properties in the area of Ses Salines have panoramic views of the sea. Property buyers who are able to find a property here have the distinction of living in a very up-market and affluent area, which is almost unmatched anywhere else in Ibiza. Due to low supply and the nature reserve status protected by law against new builds, properties for sale in this region are in high demand, and acquiring one is very difficult.


Life in the West of San José, Ibiza

Located on the west coast of San José are two popular beach resort areas, Cala Tarida and Cala Conta. Both are well known for their popularity with tourists every season, yet these beautiful spots are immensely visited throughout the entire year by locals in order to enjoy the glorious beaches on offer, full of pure white sand and turquoise waters with breathtaking sunset views. During the peak season, the area is a hive of activity, with a multitude of hotels, restaurants, bars, and tourist attractions, such as the Cotton Beach Club Ibiza, Sunset Ashram Beach Bar, and the ecological chiringuito, Cala Escondida.


Buying a Property in the West of San José, Ibiza

For those interested in buying a property here for tourism rentals or a second vacation home in Ibiza, the west is one of the best choices. This family-friendly area offers a variety of renovated and modernised villas and apartments with stunning views of the landscape, the sea, and some of the best sunsets on the island.

        Prestige Properties Ibiza – It’s the Season of Giving Back

        Every year around Christmas, Prestige Properties supports a local charity. For 2021, we have chosen two charitable purposes: Ibiza Food Bank, which collects food for people in need, and Peacharoo, a caring heart who is raising funds to build a school for orphans in Uganda. 



        Ibiza Food Bank – Alleviating Poverty in Ibiza

        Image: Food for Ibiza

        Undoubtedly living through a global pandemic, for the last two years, has been quite challenging for everybody. While some were able to rearrange their way of living and working, others have lost their jobs, homes, and loved family members. Particularly here in Ibiza, people have suffered immensely due to the pandemic, as it has had a dramatic impact on the island’s economy. While many were able to work during the summer months, when tourism is booming, many fall into unemployment in winter. 

        As plenty of Ibiza’s inhabitants lose their regular income in winter, they must live from what they’ve earned during the high season, hence finding themselves in a miserable situation, with little or no income, no savings, and in the worst cases, without food. 

        Image: Food for Ibiza

        For this reason, Ibiza Food Bank started their initiative, supporting those who cannot afford to buy food. Their volunteers collect food donations and cash donations across the island. The donated food is then sorted in Playa Den Bossa, stored, and distributed to their charity partners (The Red Cross, Caritas, Mother Teresa Food Bank in Jesus, Equip Voluntario, Food for Ibiza, and Doctors of the World). With their help, around 4000 people are being fed, weekly. 

        To maximise their time and donations, Ibiza Food Bank has partnered up with Carritos Solidarios, making sure to be able to provide enough food during the hard winter months. Together they place trollies at the entrance of around 70 supermarkets in Ibiza, which are accompanied by two volunteers in uniform, encouraging shoppers to leave dry food donations and sanitary items. 

        Image: Food for Ibiza

        It is self-evident that feeding so many hungry people each week is a huge challenge. Furthermore, it is most likely that the number of people who depend on these donations will be rising. Besides their food donations, Ibiza Food Bank adds a 10€ voucher to the food pack to be spent in Spars supermarkets, which are located all around the island, making it easy for everybody to buy in a supermarket close to them. Furthermore, Ibiza Food Bank started a GoFundMe, where everybody can donate money easily, which is being used to top up the food parcels.


        Camino de Santiago for Uganda Orphans

        Image: BHHNP

        Another cause, for which we decided to raise awareness and donate money to is Peacharoo Peachey’s charity. Peacharoo is a good friend of one of our sales agents at Prestige, who started the Camino de Santiago from Valencia by himself in October to raise funds for Ugandan Orphans in rural Kabale. To finance the Camino, he sold all his belongings, as he sees this opportunity as a personal challenge and a possibility to help these kids. 

        Image: BHHNP

        Together with the local project BHHNP, his goal is to raise 70,000€ to buy land with school structures and to pay for the education of 163 orphans. All these kids have lost their parents to diseases. Some of them live with their relatives, others live in the wild, but all of them need food, love, and education. The local project’s objectives are to help the needy people and orphans in their community. It provides educational and medical services, to reduce the number of street kids and people in need. Currently, they are providing food, clothes, personal hygiene articles, and medical services.  

        Image: BHHNP

        From Prestige Properties Ibiza, we want to bring visibility to some of the charity initiatives that are organised by different associations and people of Ibiza. It is paramount we see the island as a whole and with equal opportunities for all, and where there are inequality and need, we desire to stand together to make a difference and create long-lasting improvements for the health and well-being of our local community. Especially this year, with the global impact of the pandemic, we also wanted to focus on a charity abroad.

        If you want to volunteer your time or get involved, check out the links below. Your support and help will be greatly appreciated by those who are struggling to care for themselves.
