Sometimes architects have the uncanny skill to build something new that encapsulates the historical and cultural traditions of the land and people. Villa Calma is a fine example of how the highly esteemed traditional architecture of Ibiza can be utilised in contemporary designs. This divine villa appears steeped in the romantic history of island farming life when in fact, it is a modern, functional familial home.
Surrounded by 13,000 square metres of pristine rural land, the main house provides a whopping 314 square metres of light-filled space while a guesthouse supplies the perfect luxury accommodation for visitors. While the property enjoys the tranquillity of the country surrounds, it also boasts easy access to the convenience and buzz of San Jose, San Antonio and the gorgeous coastline of Ibiza’s southwest.
Each of the five double bedrooms features en-suite bathrooms and built-in wardrobes. Natural light floods in from wood-framed sliding glass doors. The main suite boasts a wall of sliding doors opening to a quiet corner of the garden and pool area. A huge egg-shaped bathtub sits at one end of the room, making a perfect spot for long, luxurious soaks. The living space has a polished micro-cement floor and a wood burning stove in the corner for adding extra winter warmth over the underfloor heating system though out the property.
An elongated skylight illuminates the kitchen, where the breakfast island opens to a casual dining area. Bright and homely, the beamed ceilings add a rustic vibe to the super modern kitchen. Doors open from this space to an outdoor lounge area and covered porch boasting a long dining table for summertime gatherings. Here, the stone paving and rustic exterior finish recalls the past providing a leisurely, romantic ambience.
A lush lawn surrounds the pool, beyond which a further outdoor chill-out zone is ripe for growth. Mature gardens stretch out from the main house, filled with ancient olive trees, pines and fruit orchards. Good orientation means the property gets sunshine until late into the day, providing the perfect blend of an indoor/outdoor lifestyle. This property is the epitome of the classic island life.
