Surrounded by thriving farmlands in the heart of the island lies a hidden tropical paradise that once found, you never want to leave. Striking palm trees tower over lush green lawns and gardens beset with cobbled pathways and vine-covered archways lead into a Mediterranean citrus orchard. This is Can Sastre, a luxurious yet intimate Agroturismo that could just be one of Ibiza’s best kept secrets.
A subtle iron gate gives no clue as to the magic that lies over Can Sastre’s threshold. Once inside, beauty, nature and wonder abound, every which way you look. The hotel was recently given a new lease of life by entrepreneurial Dutch couple Raymond and Bibi van der Hout – former restaurateurs, design aficionados and travel enthusiasts who spotted its potential for transformation in 2018.
With just four spacious suites on offer – each with its own distinct character and private terrace area – Can Sastre is like an enclave of mini-villas that appeal to couples seeking tranquillity and families desiring space alike. There’s a touch of Scandi chic to the décor, combined with a neo-Bohemian, organic Ibiza vibe; meanwhile all bathrooms are walk-in, spa-like and equipped with organic Meraki amenities from Denmark and a gastronomic breakfast is included daily.
The property itself is sprawling, with many corners, nooks, hammocks and chill outs in which to kick back and relax, including the stunning turquoise plunge pool surrounded by vibrant bougainvillea, tropical foliage and conveniently located next to an honesty bar. Ibiza holidays have never looked better.
