Due to its location, La Finca Encantada feels beautifully secluded. The original house dates back more than 300 years and exudes the charm and authenticity of a traditional Ibicencan finca with its whitewashed walls, olive and sabina wood ceilings and the smell of jasmine pervading the entrance. Yet, for all of its history and simplicity the house comes with all the modern comforts like under floor heating and air conditioning in all the bedrooms. The house has been completely renovated two years ago but a lot ofpainstaking attention has been paid to leave original features and layouts untouched.
The East, South and West facing orientation means you can enjoy sun all day from one of its many terraces.
The main house consists of four bedrooms and three bathrooms plus a sitting room with fire place and home cinema, a further sitting hall with fire place and the indoor dining area with open plan kitchen and separate pantry/ laundry room. There is also a terrace for alfresco dining with beautiful views of the San Joan hill range and the Morna Valley.
The heart of the Farmhouse finca is the south facing porch, which has been unchanged for centuries and invites to spend days just reading in the shade and letting life flow by.
One of the bedrooms is a luxury Yurt which is connected to the main house by a wood and glass structure, thereby making it an integral part of the main house while at the same time being connected to the elements, such as the chirping of birds in the morning and the rustling of wind in the trees. You can choose to open the roof and sleep under a starry night or use the modern air conditioning unit, which will cool or warm it comfortably within minutes. It is allows the purest Ibiza experience without renouncing any of the modern creature comforts.
The guesthouse which was completed a year ago, offers comfortable accommodation for extended family or group of friends. It consists of three bedrooms and three bathrooms. All bedrooms and the living area benefit from air- conditioning and the entire house has under floor heating. Two of the bedrooms have been simply yet beautifully decorated. Both have en suite bathrooms. The third bedroom has a bunk bed and its own bathroom with bathtub. The guesthouse benefits from its own high-spec kitchen, laundry facilities and sitting room. The kitchen is fully equipped including a professional La Cornue Grand Chef cooker making it an ideal alternative for a chef to prepare meals. Its location means that total privacy is guaranteed for both the main house and the guesthouse.
The guesthouse has a large, partially shaded terrace with beautiful views to the east and receive a wonderful evening light. There is also a large lawn adjoining the terrace attached to the house surrounded by beautiful lush vegetation. On an adjacent lower terrace is a football pitch as well as a covered area with ping pong table and mini snooker.
The property consists of around forty five thousand square meters of gently terraced land, including pine forests, ancient olive and algarroba trees, fruit orchards and plenty of beautiful ancient stonewalls that are so characteristic of the Ibiza countryside. There are plenty of walks around the property, secret paths to explore and for those who feel adventurous there are plenty of opportunities to bike or hike directly from the house.
