My boyfriend and I are going to get married, and we wanted to share the news with our families, so we invited our parents and children and organised a dream holiday in a fantastic villa in the countryside, 10 km from Ibiza Town and 1 km from the village Santa Gertrudis.
Not only was the location perfect for us, but the youngest ones of the group could go out and enjoy the famous Ibiza night scene (by car or taxi) and the older ones (preferring something calmer) enjoyed, just like we had foreseen, taking long walks around the pine trees within the surrounding 7,000 m2 plot, where there were also palm trees, fruit trees, plants, flowers, lounging areas, a patio, as well as a vegetable garden, tennis and paddle courts, and two swimming pools.
My boyfriend and I and our respective parents stayed in the main four-bedroom house, and the kids stayed in the guesthouse, also with 4 bedrooms. There was another little two-bedroom house (originally for gate or groundskeepers) where the staff slept. This way we could all have our own privacy.
My kids figured that, in total, the villa could comfortably sleep 16 people, and they have already decided that next year all of us will come back, along with half a dozen of their friends. But we’ll have to see about that, of course!
First, we have to plan a wedding!
We told our families the big news on one exceptionally bright night during dinner in the outdoor dining area. This area, like the rest of the property, possesses the charming Ibiza style with a lovely pinkish façade that vibrantly contrasts with the lush green vegetation and with the clear blues, even in the interior, drawn in by the sea.
We continued our celebration the next day on the beach, then by going shopping around the quirky street markets, then by going hiking… In short, the rest of the holiday turned into one big pre-wedding celebration, and we had this luxury villa as our witness.
An incredible place! Every minute spent here was a delight filled with comforts and treats for all the senses. I think that everyone, adults and children alike, left the villa with the same idea: to return.
