Ibiza villas: New! Vista Mar

This stunning minimalist masterpiece, set in an exclusive enclave in the island’s north, encompasses a pared back aesthetic with an infusion of subtle Ibicenco motifs. The six bedrooms are cool and calm – all the better to take in the 180-degree view of the Mediterranean across the cantilevered terraces and infinity pool. Owned by renowned designer Jose Gandia Blasco, Vista Mar is an irresistible call to freedom from daily life, a perch with a spectacular view from which to contemplate the pleasure principle.

The unspoilt north of Ibiza attracts a certain energy – little development in this area has allowed it to maintain a feeling of non-conformity, privacy and a closeness with nature not available elsewhere. Villa Vista is a true sanctuary for the soul. Set on a hidden hilltop overlooking the vast azure undulations of the sea below, Vista Mar is utterly simple in design and through that simplicity perfection shines. High ceilings provide a sense of spaciousness that reflects the views from the huge glass doors, cubic architectural components mimic the traditional Ibicenco style along with white washed walls and poured concrete finishes. A symmetrical beauty permits the pureness of the view to saturate every corner of this incredible home.

An unassuming entrance gate, driveway and front door conceal an awe-inspiring home. Living spaces open to wide square terraces and that view is visible from everywhere. High ceilings, clean lines and white furnishings are tempered with casual instances of wood. A wooden floating staircase leads up to a crow’s nest bedroom, while the shadows and light that play against the steps, adding texture to the towering white wall, punctuates the main living room. A ten-seat dining table is crowned at one end by wood panelling and an adjacent bright blue wall that faces the massive sliding door to the terrace and the sea beyond.
