Ibiza villas: Where to stay – San Lorenzo
San Lorenzo is a little secret sitting in the centre of the triangle of Santa Gertrudis, San Joan and San Carlos. It’s under the radar, quietly humming, hugely appealing and totally outside the mainstream. The homes in this area run the gamut of Ibiza style – from reformed farmhouses to sleek, architectural masterpieces.
It’s more like a gathering of ancient buildings tucked into a gently sloping wooded landscape than a village. A medieval church presides over a scattering of houses, a bar, a little school and famous café La Paloma. Behind this so-called village is an enormous picnic area with public barbecues and kids adventure playground. Tranquil and serene, San Lorenzo is the perfect location for people who love to escape but still want the option to dip into the social scene whenever they like.
Featured villa: Villa Novia
The owners of this four-bedroom villa have a keen eye for fine design and absolute luxury is evident everywhere. A palette of whites and greys with splashes of metallic and bold colours creates a delightful juxtaposition with the natural beauty of the surrounds. Villa Novia captures that mix of homely nonchalance and chic design that is the essence of Ibiza.
