The house is situated between San Fransisco (the capital of the island) and San Fernando. It is about 5 kilometres from the port of La Savina and about 4 kilometres from fine sandy beaches on both sides of the island. It is an old farmhouse with massively thick stone walls and high woodbeamed ceilings. It is modernised and very comfortable, but simple. It is not a smart villa.
Large living room.
2 double bedrooms.
Small sitting room.
Swimming pool (open from June to end of September0.
The large living room is approximately 7x3.5 metres. The smaller sitting room has a long built-in sofa and a fireplace. There are two bathrooms, one opening off the living room and one by the front door. The first bathroom is large, with walk in shower, bidet, basin and lavatory. There is hot and cold water to the shower, basin and bidet. The second bathroom, also large, has lavatory, shower and basin with hot and cold water. The kitchen (deep blue tiled) is fully equipped for six people and has a gas cooker, electric fridge and microwave. Water heating is by gas (butane, delivered to the door). There is electric light and the pump to raise the water is electric. Linen is provided and is changed weekly.
There are large private walled terraces at both front and back of the house and there is a large garden for children to play in. The pool is irregular shaped and has a shallow shelf on the terrace side. There is a barbecue area near the pool. The pool is open from June to the end of September. We usually eat on the back terrace, beside the pool in summertime. The views from here, over the salt lake to Ibiza with the Vedra on the left, are spectacular - especially the sunsets.
Cars, mobylettes and bicycles can be rented on the island. There is plenty of space for parking vehicles on the land, in the shade! If you are going to hire a car, we recommend an electric one as it is more eco friendly and, very usefully, there are some designated parking spaces in the busiest areas. Parking can be very difficult in high season.
We have a friend who looks after the house; she speaks English, French and Spanish.
In July and August we rent from Saturday to Saturday.
