Some of the most architecturally inspired homes are ones where the designer’s touch is barely noticeable.  Where there’s a seamlessness between landscape and living space. Where modern features appear timeless.  It rings true in this recently renovated six-bedroom villa on Ibiza’s east coast. In the elite Roca Llisa complex, soft minimalism has an Ibcencian accent.  Think knotted woods, grassy furnishings and locally made objets d’art. But also sharp angles, modernist silhouettes and discreet add-ons that make this a 21st-century retreat for friends and family.  Air conditioning, security, a state-of-the-art kitchen.  Contemporary architecture. Barefoot luxury.

From the villa’s hillside vantage point, floor-to-ceiling sliding doors, glass balustrades and an infinity-edge pool make the most of Ibiza’s 300 days of sunshine and views to Formentera. All you need to do is drift between sun and shade.

A zesty orange juice on the poolside daybed. Cooling off with a good book or a game of chess in the bright, bohemian lounge. Low, linen-covered sofas are a great spot for a siesta. Cooked in the streamlined kitchen, local produce tastes best around one of three long, wooden tables. Special-occasion meals in the formal dining room. Shared dishes of zarzuela in the shaded outdoor nook. Fish barbecued on the top-floor terrace at sunset. This is a home for entertaining.

On the uppermost floor, two master bedrooms enjoy soft super-king beds and en suites designed for couples – twin sinks and extra-deep bathtubs big enough for two. Four further bedrooms are arranged across the two lower floors carved into the sloping hillside, each with super-king beds, en suite shower rooms, televisions and dedicated living spaces. No matter which you end up in, the horizon looks bright from your private terrace. Slide back the wall-to-wall glass doors and let the breeze roll in off the Mediterranean. Space to wake easy and wind down well.


Since the 70s, Roca Llisa has been Ibiza’s most exclusive gated community. An enclave brought together by an appreciation of good design, luxury and peace amid rolling hills, two famous golf courses and a wellness centre specialising in yoga and holistic treatments. A sanctuary from and a springboard to Ibiza Town and Santa Eulalia. Closer to home: the lesser-trodden neighbourhoods of Jesús and Cala Llonga. Pack a picnic and follow the hill down to the unspoiled cove of Cala Olivera.
