We arrived in Ibiza at night after an inconveniently delayed flight. Waiting for us at the airport were two impeccable Mercedes cars with drivers, and in less than 10 minutes we were already pulling into the villa. An electric iron gate opened up to show the paved driveway leading uphill to the house, the last one on the mountain slope.
The staff had been waiting for us just a little before our arrival. Dinner was prepared, but the welcome sky-blue cocktail turned out to pair wonderfully with looking at the views from up top. Background silence. The lights on the coast out front let us sense the presence of the sea. Formentera in the background. Ibiza with its illuminated fortress slightly to the left. The darkness of the mountain just behind. Given privacy and peace from the villa’s fenced-in plot of land (60,000 m2). And a cover of ‘La Vie en Rose’ by Edith Piaf started to play. Unforgettable moments of happiness were being engraved in our minds forever.
A beginning like that could only make way for a very memorable week at Waterfall Villa. The following days we enjoyed the huge mansion with its magnificent spaces, great marble columns, 6 enormous double bedrooms and their en-suite bathrooms – with spa baths or showers with massage jets – and, under the porch, its large living room with an 18-person dining area that let us look at the sea through its archways.
I fondly remember the soothing sound of waterfall flowing over a rock wall and into the pool, which was divided into two by a bridge that connected the house to a sun deck containing hammocks and cabana beds, and where we spent great times with our guests.
And completing the scene was a 6-person Jacuzzi, a pergola with 4 beds on wood flooring, a grass lawn, and a bar where our waiter would serve us the best cocktails right by the pool. And we had all of this less than 10 minutes from the Marina Ibiza, the beaches Den Bossa, Ses Salines, Es Caballet, and from the best beach clubs.
It was a truly magical spring. Images and experiences that will stay with me my whole life.
Our flight back home was not delayed…
