Hot property: Villa Maca, Santa Gertrudis

New builds in Ibiza are pretty rare these days. Strict zoning laws have limited the number of projects passing through the various authorities, so this gem in the heart of Santa Gertrudis (finished in 2019) is a real find – the pinnacle of family living in Ibiza. Built to the highest standards using the latest materials and technologies, the stunning Villa Maca is sold fully furnished and key-ready.

Set on a 600 square metre plot, the house has five bedrooms flowing over two levels, with the ground floor featuring two bedroom suites, a sunlit living space, an enormous eat-in kitchen and access to the pool, patio and garden via a huge glass pocket door. A teak floating staircase with an artistic steel balustrade leads to the second level. Here, the master suite takes pride of place. With a spacious walk-in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom, the master bedroom is completed with a sun-drenched private terrace – the perfect escape. Two further bedroom suites mean the ground floor bedrooms can be reserved for guests or used as a studio or office.

Each bedroom boasts teak built-in cupboards and air-conditioning, with underfloor heating features throughout the property making Villa Maca the ideal year-round home. Integrated domotics control blackout shades, curtains, lighting and the sound system, allow total regulation of your environment at your fingertips. The designer kitchen will no doubt be a focal point for the property’s new owners, with a generous breakfast bar and all the mod-cons to please even the pickiest master chef. With room for an eight-seat dining table alongside the kitchen, many laughter-filled family meals will be enjoyed. From the kitchen area, stairs lead down to the 135 square metre basement providing plenty of storage and subterranean parking.

The garden at Villa Maca is an ideal size to be easily managed by busy people. The 8 x 3 metre pool is the perfect summer cool-down spot, providing hours of fun for all the family. Outdoor seating delivers a fresh spot for alfresco dining or after dinner drinks under the Ibizan starlit skies. Furnishings meld Danish chic with island chill. Natural materials blend smoothly with steel and glass. The colour palette is a gentle spectrum of neutrals with occasional bold patterns and splashes of colour. Sold fully furnished, this house is ready to be lived in yet the style affords the addition of personal touches for whoever is lucky enough to call it home.

Situated in the centre of the island, Santa Gertrudis is a cosmopolitan hub with an international community. As the island’s central village, it has easy access to Ibiza town, surrounding villages and beaches. Located minutes from the Morna International School and the excellent local Santa Gertrudis primary school, there’s no better place to raise your family if you’re thinking about relocating to the island permanently. The village is brimming with cute cafes, top-notch restaurants and boutiques selling everything from fashion and homewares to art and crystals.

Morning coffee with a sandwich at Bar Costa is practically an Ibiza institution while Wild Beets has been forging the path to sustainable plant-based eating for almost a decade. Newcomers such as Numero 74 L’Atelier, Bottega Il Buco and Finca la Plaza fit in perfectly with classic stalwarts like Can Musset and Macao Café. The village square – crowned by the impressive church – is a lively meeting ground for locals where children frolic and play while grown-ups sip drinks, gossip and watch the passers-by.
