Regularly awarded a coveted Blue Flag for high standards of water quality, amenities and environmental awareness the lovely beach of Cala Llenya is within walking distance of this striking property. It is just a short stroll from the front of the Villa to the steps and unmade cliff path leading directly to the beach; a total distance of just under 500m. Once a favoured haunt for smugglers and deserted until thirty years ago, Cala Llenya’s wide curve of fine white sand, now edged by some elegant restaurants, a few beach bars and hotels, remains temptingly attractive. Families, in particular are sure to appreciate the gently shelving shoreline, crystal clear waters, snorkelling and watersports on offer.
One of two virtually identical properties to occupy this privileged position (sister property Aurora is alongside) the clean lines and superb minimalist décor of the Villa only accentuates the eye-catching, pine clad scenery in this conservatively developed area. Dense green foliage contrasts markedly with both the whitewashed façade and dramatic, almost abstract splashes of colour on the property’s internal walls.
Immensely welcoming and thoughtfully designed, the main living area forms an “L” shape to the bedrooms allowing all to benefit from lovely woodland or sea views. A refreshing and contemporary decorative style, evident throughout, effortlessly creates the luminosity which has inspired the villa’s name. Large sliding windows in the living/dining area allow light to flood in highlighting the glass-topped designer table, elegant red chairs and subtle monotone sofas that set off modish artwork. In the kitchen, a smart breakfast bar, and fashionable stools further enhance what is a somewhat futuristic setting.
Sophisticated glass panels edging the terraces, balconies, staircase and landing augment the feeling of space, with large picture windows on the first floor bringing a clarity and illumination that spreads over both levels. All four bedrooms benefit from a dedicated bath or shower room, outside access directly to the pool terrace or a balcony and décor that is simple, effective and colourful in equal measure. Accessed from the landing, a vast sun terrace looks over the pool and across the tree tops to the sparkling Mediterranean.
Al fresco dining on Luminosa’s covered terrace is a delight, particularly at sunset when clever lighting around the pool area will create an irresistible desire to linger long after dinner has been served.
All amenities are found close to the beach or a scenic 5km drive along the old coastal road will bring you to Santa Eulália, a town with a long-established reputation as the island's gastronomic and cultural centre. Art galleries, an exclusive marina, some of the island's best restaurants and excellent shopping make it a great stop off point on the way to the island capital, Ibiza Town just twenty minutes further. Do not forget to visit the fascinating ‘hippy markets’ held nearby; San Carlos (3km) every Saturday and Es Cana (4km) every Wednesday.
