Where the Light Is | 5 Contemporary Dwellings in Ibiza

For those looking to make the most of summer, thankfully, there’s Ibiza. Surrounded by vibrant Mediterranean waters, the third-largest Balearic Island is the definition of paradise. Though the island is known for its vibrant nightlife and live electronic music shows, a foray into the countryside and the island’s quieter villages reveals a more balanced tranquility. Here are five homes that embrace contemporary style without losing out on any of the dynamism of Ibiza.

An Ultra-Modern Villa in the Countryside

Barbara CapraraIbiza Sotheby’s International Realty

For private luxury, head just four miles from the port of Ibiza towards the village of San Rafael, to a state-of-the art property with ample amenities. Built in 2017, this idyllic estate on over 14 acres is surrounded by orchards that produce lemons, pears, olives, and pomegranates. With a 20-meter pool surrounded by rolling hills and the Mediterranean Sea in the distance, the home’s striking outdoor spaces and walls of windows make a strong case for spending as much time under the sun as possible. Encompassing seven bedrooms and eight full bathrooms spread across the main property, guest house, and annex, there’s lots of space for relaxation and entertaining, should you choose—and with every window opening up to forest or garden views, nature’s calming effect is felt inside and out.

Spectacular Sea Views in Roca Llisa

Located on the island’s southeast coast in Roca Llisa, you’ll find a stunning, resort-style home that exudes calm. This contemporary villa is close to the only golf course in Ibiza, an ultra-picturesque place to tee off; Cala Olivera, a secluded beach cove, is only a 10-minute walk away. But with a shimmering pool surrounded by a wooden deck, sun loungers, two outdoor dining spaces, and a rooftop jacuzzi, leaving this property is optional. Relax in the home’s open-concept living spaces—the bedrooms are sea view suites.

A Hillside Villa in Cala Jondal

This contemporary home in Cala Jondal, on Ibiza’s southern coast, can fairly be described as an oasis. Nestled on a hill surrounded by greenery, this home’s impressive landscaping features olive trees and lavender, a fountain amongst the orange trees, and a stunning pool and patio area that will have guests lounging outdoors until long after the sun sets. This seven-bedroom, seven-bathroom estate balances its modern exterior with tasteful mid-century accents, imbuing each visit with an air of timelessness. For excursions, popular Cala Jondal Beach is close by, offering dramatic coastal cliffs and turquoise waters.

Serene Terraces on the Southwestern Shore

Ibiza Sotheby’s International Realty

At 6,458 square feet, this designer villa is perfect for sharing—if you so choose. With a bright, airy interior, two ensuite bedrooms, and two separate apartments, you can relish the peace of solitude and the liveliness of company both. Meander through the large garden, cool off in the pool, and end the day with a sunset dinner on the outdoor patio with sea views in the background. Thanks to the home’s gym, sauna, and hammam, the private resort experience is only ever steps away. 

A Northern Escape Near San Miguel

Montse HernandezIbiza Sotheby’s International Realty

Head north and you’ll find this luxury villa near the charming town of San Miguel. Though this villa’s home cinema, outdoor dining area, and crystalline pool make it difficult to leave, there’s much to explore in San Miguel. Visit the beach to windsurf and dive, savor the local seafood—some of the best on the island—and peruse the local shops for treasures. After sun-soaked days of exploring, you can be home in time to enjoy the breathtaking sunsets from any one of the ocean-view terraces.

With all the sunshine, sandy beaches, and serenity the island of Ibiza has to offer, this destination is more than a glittering nightlife destination. Whether a seasonal home, a place to entertain guests, or a tranquil getaway, the contemporary homes of Ibiza are a perfect embodiment of Spanish luxury.
