Hidden away down a short unmade road in the upmarket area of Can Pep Simo, Casa 44 is a fabulous property with stunning views and wonderful outdoor and indoor spaces. Recently renovated to the highest standard with micro cement and polished limestone floors, beautiful new bathrooms and kitchen with reliable plumbing and an abundance of solar thermal hot water, yet still retaining the charm of an old finca with lots of Sabina wood and beautiful stone arches and walls. Simona, our reliable housekeeper, who lives nearby,keeps the house looking immaculate.
We have had young children staying at the house and are very happy to welcome guests of any age however we would like parents to be aware that there are low walls with steep drops near the pool and on one of the roof terraces. There as also a narrow exterior staircase with no balustrade. Four bedrooms are in the main house with the fifth bedroom being located in a separate building at the front of the property, making it ideal for teenagers or a nanny. It has a bedroom with a/c, shower room and a small sitting room with fridge and iPod dock/sound system
Our closest shopping area is cosmopolitan little Jesus which is a 5 minute drive away. It has 2 banks, 3 supermarkets (one specializing in organic and health foods), a pharmacy, Pilates and yoga studio, a great butchers/deli, an amazing patisserie with delicious bread and several good local bars and cafes.
At the coast, a long wooden board walk runs along the beach at Talamanca, where there is a wide choice of restaurants,including the smart Harbour Club which also hires out day beds , a great pizzeria and one of the original Ibizan Chringuitos, The Fish Shack.

Yes this villa is heavenly....The owner Imogen and Ian have created a simply amazing villa, you can see the work inside and out that must have been carefully planned. The decor is lovely and all the fixtures and furnishings are just perfect.
Imogen was a great host and it was all very straight forward from booking through to leaving the villa. We were met by Imogen and her husband and given a run down on their lovely home and they couldn't have been more helpful. The photos really do not do it justice. The villa is spacious, with every bedroom having its own bathroom and the pool is massive!
They have left a book of recommendations of places to visit, eat etc which we used and found helpful.
A car is useful for shop runs and to explore, however its not essential if you are prepared to carry your shopping up the hill, which is steep but not that dramatic.
Talamanca beach is nearby and a couple of us jog and were able to reach Ibiza town in 20mins or so. The Marina is also nearby so your choices to eat out are not limited. We recommend The HArbour club to eat.
We didn't explore too much as there were 8 of us and the villa was so lovely no-one wanted to go too far!
I honestly cannot praise this place enough. We have been back just over a week and am seriously pining to go back. I hope we get to return. Book this gorgeous Villa, you will not be disappointed.
