Na Xamena, North East, Ibiza, Spain
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.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
Spaciousness is accentuated in the six double bedrooms where large platform beds dominate and enormous poured concrete bathtubs invite long sessions of daydreaming. Wood panelling in the bathrooms complements the minimalist ethic and harks back to traditions of the island. Each bedroom is fitted with an ensuite bathroom. The key here is simplicity and a total respect for the view; every bedroom is a restful sanctuary.
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.
On the upper level, four interconnecting terraces merge into an L-shaped swimming pool that appears to flow directly into the sea. Here Gandia Blasco’s signature outdoor furniture reflects the architectural shapes of the environment. Two lower terraces offer private suntraps for relaxation and contemplation of the vast blue sky above. Glass doors open out to create a seamless flow between indoor and out. Of course the real star of the show here is the glistening Mediterranean Sea.
Things to do
Hidden in the lush north of Ibiza there are plenty of petite coves to explore plus lovely walking trails through the forest. Naturally, just hanging out all day at Vista Mar is a fantastic option too. Nearby you’ll find the cute villages of San Miguel and San Juan, perfect for a spot of shopping, a little eating and lots of people watching. The famous beach of Benirras sports magnificent sunsets or get one of the local therapeutic practitioners in the area to stop by for massage, yoga and more.
There is covered parking available once you pass the electric entrance gate. Air conditioning features throughout the house and daily cleaning keeps everything neat and tidy during your stay.
