Beautifully bohemian, whimsically wonderful and incredibly inviting, step inside the home of Ibiza designer Victoria Durrer-Gasse and you can’t help but get the feeling of arriving at the ‘real’ Ibiza.
An authentic Ibicenco finca – one of the oldest on the island, dating back to 1614 – that has been restored with love and respect to traditional building methods, Victoria’s home has a warm, lived-in feeling while exuding the style of a well-traveled family.
The co-founder of Ibiza concept store La Galeria Elefante clearly has exceptional taste, with colourful décor, rustic pieces and eclectic art peppered throughout the house, which she has lived in with husband Francois, a doctor, and son Emile (and his guitar collection!) for the past 15 years.
In summer, the family are constantly entertaining a collective of creative and cool friends, with alfresco dinners, kids jumping in and out of the pool and Victoria’s gorgeous dogs traipsing around the vibrant, wild flower-filled gardens. In true bohemian style, everyone is welcome here.
Set across multiple levels, chillout spaces and outdoor living areas are scattered with a cornucopia of colourful cushions, comfortable sofas, floor pillows and more, creating a laidback, modern bohemian ambience.
