Where the heart is…
Situated in the heart of Ibiza, a San Rafael valley with sweeping views across Sa Talaia, Ibiza Agroturismo Cas Gasi is the labour of love of Barcelona-born Margaret Von Korff and husband, Spanish lawyer Luis Triguero.
Featuring 12 beautiful rooms and a wellness centre, the ancient finca (orginating in 1880 and once their family home) was transformed by their own hands over ten years ago into a luxurious countryside Ibiza hotel.
Extensive renovations saw animal pens become stylish bedrooms, outdated kitchens evolve to spectacular Moroccan bathrooms and exterior porches converted to sheltered terraces. From Sabina beam ceilings and unique hand painted tiles to handmade terracotta floors, no detail was overlooked.
Tightly packed bookshelves and eclectic furnishings – a fusion of antique, modern and classical – are testament to the owners’ exquisite taste, garnered from years of travelling to exotic destinations.
The landscape is awash with colour – two swimming pools sparkle surrounded by bright flowers and lush greenery. Stunning almond trees, olive groves, orchards and an expertly cultivated organic fruit and vegetable patch supply the hotel’s private kitchen – specialising in high-level, healthy Mediterranean cuisine – with daily fresh produce.
Boasting five-star, personalised service and a relaxed, homely ambience, it’s no surprise guests return year after year for their dose of comfort dwelling. After all, there’s no place like home!
