Michael purchased this Villa in 1992
Why Michael chose Sant Josep de sa Talaia
In 1992 I entered a 10,000 m2 wild forest, which I wanted to buy. Amidst pine trees and fragrant rosemary bushes there was no way through, I could guess only small trails, which were jealously guarded by spiders. Amidst all the green something dark blue kept flashing by now and then, the sea. I was overwhelmed by the silence, the scent of pine and rosemary, the hum of bees and the concert of crickets, the play of light and shadow. I was awe inspired by this place and its wild beauty. Suddenly a small clearing opened, and immediately I knew that there the house would stand. My eyes flew over the canyon in which water still flowed from many decades ago from the mountains into the sea, and further over the dark blue sea up to the island of Formentera, the lighthouse sends its distant flashes of light. I rammed bamboo sticks in the forest floor to match the contour of the house with the trees. The nature here should play the leading role; my house should be subordinate to her. That was the concept. My guest house amidst pines and rosemary. It took years for me to build the house. At first I began to climb the pine trees to free them from old branches and fungal growth. The trees were grateful for so much unexpected attention and portrayed their individual beauty. I especially loved the pines which had fought their way amongst the others and whose trunks now, bent and crooked, narrate of the drama of their growth. There were also trunks which had gone through very little and grew straight into the sky. They inspired me less; I had to always think of timber. At first I tried to gently intervene in nature by letting young pine trees grow crooked by constricting, which is a kind of active garden design. But one could see them being compelled after a few years, because their oblique growth appeared braver than that of their wild brothers, so I regretted this approach and dropped it.
What makes this Villa unique
When I finally began to make the foundation and pull up the walls, I aligned myself with the sun’s position at different seasons to find the correct orientation of the house and the proportion of windows and doors. I stood inside the structure and looked out of the holes in to the terrain and the sea, and often I tore a wall again and changed the whole thing. The house grew slowly and organically, like the natives have also built since time immemorial. Thus, I kept getting more clarity time and again and found the path to what is important.

Ibiza Urlaub 2018
Ein sehr schönes Haus mit einer tollen Atmosphäre! Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und würden gerne wiederkommen.
In Ruhe entspannen
Die Villa liegt traumhaft schön, schon beim Aussteigen schlägt einem der Duft des Pinienwalds um die Nase. Es gibt nur wenige andere Villen in der Nähe und die meiste Zeit hört man wenig anderes als die Natur. Wir hatten warmes Wetter, aber es wehte konstant eine leichte Brise vom Meer her, so dass es äußerste angenehm war.
Die Küchenausstattung ist gut - im Gegensatz zu anderen Villen auf denen wir schon waren sind hier auch die wichtigsten Verbrauchsgüter bereits vorhanden (Salz, Pfeffer, viele Gewürze, Zucker, etc.).
Die Kinder hatten viel Freude mit den Eidechsen, Geckos und Fröschen in der Nähe des Hauses.
Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit und kamen gut erholt und entspannt zurück.
Zauberhafte Finca im Pinienwald
Wir durften 2 Wochen auf dieser wunderbaren, architektonisch geschickt gestalteten Finca mit allem Drum- und Dran verbringen.
Lage, Ausblick, Einrichtung und Betreuung lassen keine Wünsche offen.
Langer Rede kurzer Sinn, wir können das Haus von Herzen empfehlen!
lässt keine Wünsche übrig
For Nature and beauty lovers
We had a wonderful and magical time in this Villa.
The kids most enjoyed the pool and nature.
The only criticism that I can find is the lack of air conditioning. Nights in the summer can be very hot!
We know very well these hot august nights, when the normally blowing breeze has come to a stop. Fortunately it does not happen very often. However we are no friends of air condition, because it cuts you off from nature. We prefer a little naked swim in the pool and then return to bed. And switch on the fan.
Wunderbare Villa - wunderbares Panorama!
Das Haus ist wirklich top. Die Architektur und Bauqualität ist erstklassig, also weder alt und bieder noch die häufig schlecht ausgeführte Ibiza-Moderne. Der Blick in die Bucht von Es Torrent ist sehr schön. Vor allem aber sind die Betten gut. Unbedingt zu empfehlen.
Villa-Ibiza-Resort has the coordinates 38°52'627'N 1°18'426'E and lies away from the tourist crowd amidst a quiet pine grove.
The coast Porroig is located in the south of Ibiza, between the beaches Es Torrent, Es Xarcu and Cala Jondal. You can have a view up to Formentera across the sea. Easily accessible from the airport by car in 15 minutes. To the Ibiza town it takes 20 minutes, and 10 minutes to San Jose. The nearest beach is 3 minutes by car.
