Ibiza villas: Top 5 Ibiza villas for group holidays

Finding the perfect home base for your group holiday in Ibiza is essential. In order to maintain a harmonious dynamic within a large group of friends, a villa needs to offer open and comfortable spaces for socialising and entertaining, while also providing plenty of quiet corners and tranquil areas to retreat to when needed. As head of the White Ibiza Villas team, Marcia Lee has been matching properties to the needs and desires of her clients for many years and here, she shares her top five choices for groups from the White Ibiza Villas collection – now taking bookings for summer 2018.

#1. Can Cordeta

Es Cubells, South East, Ibiza, Spain

The owners of Can Cordeta specifically designed their home so it could be enjoyed by large groups of friends, with spacious communal areas both indoor and out, but also plenty of quiet corners to escape to. “There is so much space here,” says Marcia. “But all the bedrooms have their own terrace so guests can have privacy when they need it.” Two swimming pools, a beautiful outdoor lounge terrace and huge barbecue make it ideal for little garden parties, with a SONOS sound system integrated in the terrace areas. “The big Balinese hut is so lovely for an evening aperitivo, with everyone together on the sofas and the hammock as the sun goes down,” Marcia concludes.

#2. Can Dela

Cala Tarida, South West, Ibiza, Spain

“This villa is so well-equipped for groups,” explains Marcia. “All bedrooms have an en-suite bathroom – each equipped with its own speakers – and the modern styling gives the property a hotel-like feeling.” Boasting plenty of spaces for entertaining, including more than enough sun loungers and daybeds for all guests, plus a dining table seating up to 14 people, Can Dela features a main house and a guest house, meaning there is plenty of space for people to retreat. “That terrace is just the best spot for watching the sun go down into the sea,” continues Marcia. “When you share this experience with a big group of friends, it’s a classic Ibiza holiday moment you’ll never forget.”

#3. Aloe Valley

Santa Eulalia, Santa Eulalia, Ibiza, Spain

Set on a sprawling estate, Marcia compares this villa to a theme park due to the amount of things it has to offer for big groups of friends – yet it remains shrouded in privacy and tranquillity. “The spacious grounds have so many different terrace areas along with patio areas,” says Marcia. “Down by the big heated pool is a summer kitchen with a bar area for cocktail making and those big Bali beds are amazing for long summer days and nights beneath the stars.” A volleyball court and gym equipment encourage team spirit while inside a super comfy communal living space with loads of low-slung sofas, a mini bar area and pool table create a clubhouse vibe. “When you need your own space, each of the bedrooms has a UE boom speaker to connect to a flat screen TV, so everyone can be permanently entertained.”

#4. Villa Cruz

Cala de Bou, South West, Ibiza, Spain

“Villa Cruz is such an easy holiday villa for slightly smaller groups,” says Marcia. “There are no winding caminos to drive up – you can just zip in and out to all the island hotspots in 20 minutes or take a stroll down to the local beach for a beer and a sunset. You can also walk to the shop for supplies or grab a coffee and some breakfast locally, which just makes things so much easier when you don’t all have to plan a mammoth outing in the car to do anything – especially when everyone in your group wants to be doing different things.” The property is also one of the most affordable in the portfolio, with flexible check-in days for shorter stays. “This year the villa sees the addition of an upper terrace chill out with big comfy sofas and shady sails,” says Marcia. “It’s also got fibre optic internet, plus a full SKY TV package.”

#5. Can Terra

San Miguel, North East, Ibiza, Spain

This property was made with group holidays in mind. “There’s an indoor cinema with a projector screen that has just about every channel you could imagine, plus Netflix and Apple TV of course,” Marcia says. “And there’s an outdoor projector too for those balmy high summer nights.” The swimming pool is enormous and an open air yoga deck in the woods provides the space for a good stretch before preparing a super healthy breakfast in the big farmhouse style kitchen, and there are gardens on both sides of the house offering spaces for respite. “Can Terra also has the best internet on the island with its own antenna in the garden,” continues Marcia. “This means those who need to stay connected can all do so without getting too stressed out!”
