If we were lucky enough to find Fenix Villa, it’s because around 15 years ago us three friends were lucky enough to all be a little scatterbrained on our first day of university. That morning, without having ever met, we all sat together, and since then the three of us have become inseparable. That said, we don’t see each other as much as we’d like, so we decided to plan a holiday for us and our significant others, and we ended up in this amazing Ibizan villa.
The property, without any nearby neighbours, has 3 double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, which was exactly what we needed. There are also certain aspects that we found especially lovely, such as the homely decor that nicely unifies all the spaces in the house, the cosy fireplace that reigns over one of the 3 living rooms (a pleasure to admire regardless of the time of year), and the bright kitchen where we shared some great times. Not to mention the swimming pool. It was absolutely magical when lit up at night and so much fun during the day, especially for the guys, who never stopped jumping in! Meanwhile, us girls thoroughly enjoyed just talking and soaking up the sun in the beautifully landscaped areas.
That’s another of the property’s charming features: the amount of terraces and outdoor spaces surrounding the villa. The floor-length windows gave the sensation that these spaces were actually inside of the houses.
Another appeal are the many nooks and crannies offered by the unique architecture. Although we wanted to enjoy our stay as a group, we also understood that everyone needed their own space to do things alone like read, cook, think, or have a bath.
Since it’s built on top of a cliff, we could enjoy the picture-perfect views of Formentera and the Mediterranean Sea right from the property. Making things truly spectacular, the surrounding areas are nearly untouched because its one of the only villas found within the Ses Salines Natural Park.
In just 3 minutes walking we would arrive at the small cove Sa Caleta. There was a highly recommended restaurant right in the cove and—surprise!—ruins of a Phoenician settlement that, being culturally significant, were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. For longer outings, we would take the cars and in quarter of an hour we had all of the shops, street markets, bars, and restaurants of Ibiza Town at our disposal. Also close by, in Cala Jondal, is the famous Blue Marlin beach club.
Everything has been extraordinary and different, and not just because of the luxury accommodation. All 6 of us feel like a little part of us will stay here in Fenix Villa, at the top of a cliff where we could almost touch the sky.
