Located in countryside between the buzz of Ibiza town and the lovely village of San Rafael, this contemporary home incorporates many features of a traditional Ibizan finca. Designed by award-winning architect Patricia Urquiola, Villa Etxe combines modern luxuries with the charm of an old Ibicencan farmhouse. Its farmhouse-style gardens are dotted with abundant fruit trees, and guests can help themselves to the plums, apricots, apples and pomegranates that grow here. The sunny pool and terrace enjoy views over open farmland and ancient olive trees. Closer to the house, the shaded terrace areas are home to a cushioned hammock bed and a large al-fresco dining area, with a rustic dining table seating twelve. Inside, vast soft sofas face both inside to a huge real fireplace and out to the terrace and pool to create a relaxed and sociable entertaining space. Adjacent to the main living room you’ll find a formal dining room with mezzanine office/ library area, and a well-equipped kitchen which leads out onto additional terrace space. On the roof, you’ll discover a further chill-out space; a sunny terrace which is accessed from the poolside. In the main house, each of the three double bedrooms boasts an en-suite bathroom. A further en-suite double bedroom is located in the guest house. Its bright and airy snug also features a real fire. If you’re seeking a peaceful retreat in which you can chillout and relax by the pool, Villa Etxe delivers this tranquil escape.
