Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Formentera

Traditional Formentera finca in it's own land with private swimming pool.

The house is situated between San Fransisco (the capital of the island) and San Fernando. It is about 7 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.

There are:

Large living room.


2 bathrooms.

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.

Wild limping aggressive dog was wandering around at night so you can't leave doors open in the heat, a problem when there is no air con as it was hot and stuffy. The house is close to the road so noisy, especially at night and unsafe to leave young children unsupervised. Dirty cushions for outside furniture. We had to request new mattresses as two smelt of urine. To shower outside ou have to stand on a wooden pallet the pool is painted black and there is no outside lighting so you cannot swim after dark.

A distinct lack of thought in the presentation of the house and grounds, feels unfinished and scruffy around the pool. Chipped dirty mugs

Unannounced visitors (pool maintenance/plumber water replenishment). The bathroom smelt and had been badly cleaned and no cleaning products were provided.

Very lovely holiday in your Old Farmhouse with pool.

  • 5 of 5

Your description was very good and the property was exactly how I imaged it would be although the door height was quite low for me as I am 6ft 1" and after banging my head a couple of times I quickly remember to duck!. We did not eat out locally often so I an unable to comment, but you are very convenient if you wish to travel anywhere on the island, very central for everything. Once you know what day/time the pool man arrives and along with the cleaning lady for the change of linen/towels etc you are not disturbed by anyone. Wish I was still there, thank you Gay.

Una casa di campagna naturista e riposante.

  • 4 of 5

Un'antica casa di campagna ristrutturata da poco. Minimalista, naturista, ma anche elegante. Capace di trasmettere emozioni. Un luogo di

pace dove tornare dopo le ore al mare o essere stati in giro per i

locali di notte. Vere controindicazioni non ve ne sono. Per noi è stata

un'esperienza senz'altro positiva, in una casa non comune perché

rappresenta molto bene lo spirito di Formentera. Non dimenticate solo di

essere in campagna, quindi non lasciate briciole per le formiche e usate anche l'insetticida di tanto in tanto.

La proprietaria è molto discreta e ben rappresentata sull'isola. La referente è stata subito disponibile al telefono.

Car: recommended

Old traditional farmhouse, in its own land, with private swimming pool (pool open from June to end September).

The house is between San Francisco and San Fernando, just off the main road at Kilometre 7. Walking distance from San Fernando, but recommend hire of vehicle to access the whole island.
