Inside Ibiza’s most Exclusive Villas and Luxury Homes
Ibiza’s most Exclusive Villas and Luxury Homes
Ultimate luxury can often be associated with living or vacating in a lavish home that can offer exceptional quality to its guests. Whether we refer to a rare architectural gem, impeccable interior design and decor, large landscaped grounds, the authenticity, rarity and history of a house, or quite simply the divine location and the breathtaking views on offer; an exceptional property confidently guarantees an exclusive lifestyle opportunity.
When referring to the term ‘luxury’, ‘exclusive’, or ‘prestige’, we must account for the versatile considerations of the term itself. Defining such terminology is relative to the client in question and therefore may vary from person to person. What defines ‘luxury’ for one may not be the same for another!
However, when defining the exclusivity of properties here on the white island of Ibiza, we tend to refer to those homes that are at the very top of the property market, whether purchasing or renting. Those residences that hold in excess of a million price tag, offer expansive grounds, strike curiosity in style with high-end fixtures and furnishings or boast of phenomenal panoramic views of the island. These incredible residences prove ‘luxury and exclusivity’ are matched to rare sophistication, size, location and an expensive price tag.
Some of the most exclusive homes with luxury amenities will also often offer fully serviced property managers and household staff, to ensure the luxury of these properties goes beyond the villa itself. Thus, proving these homes are more than just unique and unparalleled when compared to the general market, but also require high levels of maintenance, care and hosting of its visitors or owners by skillful and trained personnel.
In terms of location, Ibiza is divided into five regions, Eivissa, Santa Eularia, Sant Antoni, Sant Josep and Sant Joan. Each one of these regions offer a different culture and this can be equally reflective of housing style and property values.
Although each area certainly provides a variety of luxury properties, the majority of higher-end properties on the market are predominantly located in the popular municipality of San Josep, quickly followed by Santa Eulalia, with San Joan boasting of the highest value per square metre, due to a very low supply versus demand scenario, when referring to sales.
Within the municipalities of San Jose and Santa Eulalia we find a collection of private urbanisations and secure gated communities such as Roca Llisa, Can Rimbau, Vista Alegre, Can Furnet, Cala Conta 33, Sabina Estates and The White Angel, where a vast majority of these status homes are to be found.
History Of The Exclusive Property Market
The property and tourism market have swiftly developed over the past 50 years. Landing on the island during the late 1960’s and early 1970’s offered a more rural and humble environment, as the island of Ibiza began to see the very start of its real tourism.
As tourism moved into the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, Ibiza saw an influx of celebrity clientele. Famous artists like Freddie Mercury, George Micheal, Grace Jones and Jimi Hendrix frequented the island and were known to visit Pikes Hotel and Las Dalias regularly.
Ibiza adopted a clientele of artists, bohemian lifestylers and affluent youth looking for an alternate lifestyle. This significant tourism development, cultural change and visiting of high-profile celebrities, moved the island to reach a far higher standard than ever before.
By the late 1980’s, Ibiza started to become a point of reference for the ‘discotech’ culture, where many travelled from across Europe for its lively nightlife and club scene. This was supported by the attraction for nautical activity, where motor-boats and super yacht chartering became a huge industry, and continued to push the travel economy into a first-class destination.
Spectacular beaches, great weather conditions, the surge of beach clubs and chiringuitos, regular DJ’s, plus ever-evolving creativity and development continued to increase the island’s global recognition; which in turn, bought even more luxury clientele by the mid 1990’s and onwards, including footballer’s, movie stars, high profile businessmen and influencers.
Ibiza has experienced nothing less than a tremendous transition from farmland, locals and many Arabic residents, to an island known across the globe for its beauty, exclusivity and innovative social and nightlife scene. Naturally, as the attractiveness of Ibiza increased and the island’s potential skyrocketed, so did the real estate market, whereby generating exclusive holiday and second home properties was high on the agenda.
Land and property development opportunities quickly became available, where famous architects, investors and property agents set themselves in motion and established renovating old finca farmhouses into artisan vacation homes (for those affluent bohemian lifestylers), to building brand-new Miami standard, white complexes and contemporary exclusive homes (with the focus on the more fashionable and private luxury clients).
Ibiza Old Town later being declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco in 1999, and the ‘Natural Parc de Salines’ including much of Formentera also being listed as protected as a Natural Reserve, only added to the island’s cultural and natural wealth, whereby property market values and the travel economy has been on the up ever since.
And, of course there are some pretty spectacular properties out there!
We take a look through the keyhole, inside some of the most exclusive villas in Ibiza.
