Villa Can Marés is a contemporary hideaway high above Ibiza’s legendary nightlife, that skillfully pays homage to the island’s architectural heritage


Perched atop a lush, pine tree-covered hill above Ibiza Town, this seven-bedroom property has a unique aspect—just five minutes’ drive from the buzz of the island’s premier party spots, yet set deep within its natural surrounds, with no other properties around it. “Wonder is the word that comes to mind with this property,” says Estela Estévez of Estela Exclusive Homes, the exclusive Affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate for Ibiza and Formentera. “The sea, the city, and the nature surrounding it merge to offer a sensation of both vast open space and tranquility,” she says.

Renowned Madrid-based architect Alfonso Colón de Carvajal y Gorosábel has certainly taken advantage of the property’s location, framing views of the sparkling Balearic Sea from every room, as well as from multiple ocean-facing terraces, sun decks, and balconies, creating an indoor–outdoor response to the island’s year-round temperate climate.

The main residence boasts five bedrooms and two living areas across 301,389 square feet, while the guesthouse, set apart from the primary home, has two bedrooms and its own terrace. Gardens of cacti, prickly pear, olive trees, and palms merge with the heavily scented pine trees of the hillside, while the property itself is covered in a veil of climbing greenery.

“The area of Can Pep Simó, where the villa is situated, is one of the most sought after on the whole island,” says Estévez. “The main reason for this is its location, but also because it’s a protected area—no other properties can be developed here.”

Sheltered from harsh winds, this area of the Mediterranean also benefits from the presence of a marine plant called Oceanic Posidonia, which grows in the waters around the island and is responsible for the sea’s incredible clarity.

For yacht owners, nearby Marina Botafoch and Ibiza Nueva in Ibiza Town are two private marinas with added glamour: Upscale nightclubs are located inside or nearby in the form of Blue Marlin, Lío, and Pacha. Open year-round, Marina Botafoch provides 428 moorings of between 19 and 98 feet.

“One of the nicest things to do is go by boat to the smaller World Heritage Site of Formentera, which takes 15 minutes from Ibiza Port,” says Estévez. “It’s like stepping back in time. People fall instantly in love with this little island and never want to leave.”
