Luxury Location Guide: Balearics – Ibiza
The White Isle is world famous as the spiritual home of all kinds of electronic music played in some of the world’s finest nightspots. However, in recent years Ibiza has been making successful efforts to broaden its appeal. Outside of San Antonio and Ibiza Town, the island is home to a number of stunningly beautiful smaller villages and coastal communities set amongst the handsome, rugged rocky scenery offset by the invariably crystal blue sea. Since the Island is one of Europe’s premier destinations, and a popular choice for expatriates seeking a primary or secondary home, it’s no surprise that there’s a buoyant market in luxury houses too.
With such a number of typically Mediterranean style luxury homes for sale in Ibiza, the island is a wonderful opportunity for a fun loving family to buy a property either to live in or let out. As such a stylish and fashionable destination, these luxury properties are the only way to enjoy the true ‘Ibiza experience’, as the island moves considerably more upscale each year – so much so that only five star quality hotels are now given permission to be built!
Of course there’s only really one place to start when looking into what Ibiza has to offer – the nightlife. The range (and size) of clubs is astonishing, with all forms of musical taste catered for. Ibiza is no longer the exclusive preserve of electronica; in fact one of the Island’s most popular events is now the annual Ibiza Rocks festival where some of the biggest bands in the world headline. Every night there are certain to be genuine superstar DJs playing, either in residence or on global tours. For music aficionados, there really is nowhere better.
But, even the most energetic resident won’t be able to keep pace with Ibiza night after night. The good news is that outside of the music scene there are a number of excellent events throughout the year, typically but not exclusively, once the tourist season comes to a finish.
The May-time Ibiza International Film festival is rapidly becoming one of the most prestigious in Europe and offers plenty of premieres and classic screenings. On a more local level, on the 1st of February each year Ibiza holds its Carnival Parades, where the island celebrates with colourful processions and parades of floats. With plenty of other national and Ibiza-specific fiestas over the course of the year, this warm and welcoming island really knows how to celebrate and enjoy life.
There are plenty of villas in Spain for sale, and indeed there’s so much property for sale in Spain altogether that even luxury standard homes in such a wonderful place as Ibiza can be surprisingly accessible. Ibiza really can offer a fun filled place to set up home. Not only can it boast a thriving cultural scene, it’s also an island enthusiastically proud to celebrate its long and ancient heritage.
