Hot property: Finca Sol

Tucked into a lush hillside on the east side of the island, Finca Sol contains all the romance of tradition as well as the excitement of untapped potential. This classic five-bedroom home is ideal for a growing family looking to start a new life in Ibiza or for those seeking an island getaway to run to when city life gets you down.

Sol means sun in Spanish and there’s good reason this villa has been named after the Milky Way’s favourite megastar. Wake up to glorious views across the wooded valley towards the ultramarine blues of the Mediterranean in this sun-drenched Ibiza home.

There’s much to love about this cosy villa. Located equidistant between Santa Eulalia and Ibiza town, it’s a short ten-minute drive to all the conveniences of village and city life yet beautifully secluded for privacy and escape. Snuggled amongst the pines high up on the hill, Finca Sol has magnificent views and its south-facing orientation means the sun floods the spaces all day long. The main house is 431 square metres and flows over two levels. The layout of the four double bedrooms and common areas hints at the traditional, with Sabina wood beams, exposed stone work, whitewashed walls and terracotta tiles connecting the house to local Ibizan architectural heritage.

A one-bedroom guest apartment provides the perfect teenage cave or extra visitor accommodation. Connected to the main house but also accessible independently, it’s a convenient addition for whatever purpose you see fit – art studio, music production den or home office. There’s also another independent studio with its own entrance which could be used as staff quarters, extra lodging during the busy summer months or as a space to work from home. Finca Sol has enough flexibility to take on any combination of family, visitors, work and play.

Mature gardens weave their way through the property, and any neighbours are obscured by pine and palm trees. There’s a true sense of privacy, especially on the pool terrace where the view stretches out in kaleidoscopic greens and blues. The valley sends its wholesomeness towards the house, dousing everything in the pine-fresh scent of Ibiza. A covered porch houses a comfortable sofa overlooking the pool. There’s also an outdoor kitchen and pergola covered alfresco dining area. Suntraps abound with balconies, terraces and garden areas all vying for your attention on lazy summer days and nights.

Winter is well taken care of with central heating and a cosy fireplace surrounded by sofas. The garden is more than happy with well water while the main house is connected to the town grid meaning utilities are straightforward. Plenty of parking and a blossoming fruit orchard complete this classic Ibiza home. Santa Eulalia’s boutiques, banks, restaurants, bars and schools are just moments away while the buzz of Ibiza town and the glitzy Marina Botafoch are just down the road. Local beaches include the family friendly, wide and sandy Cala Llonga, Santa Eulalia beach with its pedaloes and water sports plus Playa Niu Blau with its shady pine trees and funky bars.

The bones of Finca Sol are solid and ready to receive a cosmetic makeover to bring the interior style into the modern day. Bathrooms and kitchen are ready for transformation and a general update to décor, doorways and windows will grant this lovely home a new lease on life. An ideal family home for those seeking the convenience of town access without the rigmarole associated with country living. A fantastic opportunity for first home buyers or those with a growing family, Finca Sol is an idyllic home base with easy access to everything that makes life in Ibiza comfortable, fun and enviable.
