|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
Ideally located, this is the apartment which is nearest to the beach in Cala Vadella. It is also the first construction made in the cove, an ancient charcoal's cottage. Nowadays its modern design fits the needs of the twenty-first century (Internet via WIFI, ecological walls, comfort, induction cooker, microwave ..)
Today this old cottage has been adapted so austere and simple. The new design has been conceived to delight short stays in holiday periods or even with the idea of providing all the facilities for retreats that require a high dose of concentration (summer, winter or weekends).

I am passionate of nature, of its legacy and its diversity. I find irresistible knowing new culltures and its historical processes, transformations involving generalized welfare achievements, the worldviews of each person... Surely, I've been influenced by my childhood in this former Charcoal's Cottage, not only my relationship with people committed to universal ethical values, but also my personal experience travelling and working abroad during so many years (Latin America, Africa, Middle East and Asia).
I currently work at the University of Barcelona, as a professor and in a collaboration project between European and Asian universities.
Pep Serra purchased this studio in 1880
The ancient Charcoal Cottage of Cala Vedella, also is known among locals as “Ca n’Engràcia” (Engracia’s house) as a consequence of the footprint that this lady left at the place. Around 1952 Engràcia and Lluís reached the Cala, they were nature lovers, and activists committed on universal ethical principles (justice, respect …).
Cala Vedella was considered one of the most important coves of the west coast of Ibiza, was known as a “port” for its wide entrance and because it is a protected corner where they could anchor coastal vessels. Also we know that in XIX century, there was a drinking water source (therefore it was already an attractive place!).
In the description given by the Archduke Luis Salvador (1867), he emphasized the importance of Cala Vedella in the west, as one of the starting point of the agricultural and forestry production.
It is possible that by the end of 1800 and beginning of 1900 demand, production, and trading of charcoal for domestic fuel, was attractive enough to motivate the construction of a small cottage (Sa Casa des Carbo) to facilitate charcoal trading that was produced around Cala Vedella.
Just as was done with other products, once the locals had produced charcoal they picked it up from the traditional earth kilns for charcoal made around the forest to the coast, and from there they transported it in small rowing boats to another one larger (a sailboat) than would be responsible for transportation towards the island’s capital.
My roots with this house have been around even before myself would saw the life.
Studio was clean and has everything you need. Beach is right in front. Parking is around the corner. Restaurants and bars are next door.
"Luogo incantevole con tramonti memorabili e una bella spiaggia davvero "a due passi". La casa è arredata con molto buon gusto e lo spazio organizzato in modo eccellente.I proprietari sono gentilissimi e disponibili. Consigliamo vivamente!!!"
Just go to the beach, once there you have to go to the north corner of the beach promenade (that's Castelldefels street). The cottage is just at the corner, it is the nearest to the beach.
'The main beach has good access for the disabled, during the summer season the beach is patrolled by lifeguards. There are Loungers, parasols and Pedalo's which can be hired. Just of the beach many types of water sports can be enjoyed, such as snorkelling, water skiing and there is a diving school. There are showers available on beach. There is parking for 250 cars including a small amount of allocated parking bays for disabled drivers displaying a European blue badge' (Wikipedia).
