UNESCO has designed some key sites in Ibiza as being of great value both culturally and historically. The ancient fortifications in Ibiza town are considered the best preserved coastal fortress in the Mediterranean. With ancient Phoenician sites dating back to pre-Christian times there is a wealth of places of interest to visit around the island.
The architecture of the churches is unique even across Spain. Due to rather vulnerable position of Ibiza in the Mediterranean it had to fortify itself against invasion by pirates and aggressive forces. The towers that are still in evidence around the coastline are a reminder to Ibiza’s efforts to remain autonomous.
To protect the populace at times of conflict, the churches on the island (built from 14th – 18th Century) were constructed as places of secure refuge. These white buildings, still in use today, sit at the heart of the Ibizan life. Families gather there each week to worship, politics and island life is discussed by the elders of the village on the steps outside. If you are lucky to be in Ibiza for one of its vibrant fiestas, you will see the colourful and joyful culture of Ibiza displayed to perfection. Family, food, fun is probably the very best way to describe it.
Ibiza, known as the white island, has a distinctive and modern architecture style and beautiful homes that are built in clean lines and proliferate across the island. The crisp white modular buildings create the perfectly pure counter-point to the lush green, brown tones of the pine covered hills. All of these elements combine perfectly to create a mesmerising effect against the dazzling blue seascape. This fabulous style of architecture is captured in most of our Ibiza villas to rent.
Low level, open plan rooms, unfolding into other rooms and outwards onto poolside terraces all embracing the Mediterranean views. The furnishings of our villas embrace the Mediterranean lifestyle and are soft and luxurious. There is a perfect villa waiting for you and our Exceptional team on hand to help you find the perfect home from home.
