Design objectives were to maximise the potential of the magnificent views
and environs. This was achieved by having large windows, balcony areas and
exterior spaces with commanding vantage-points of the surrounding
mountains, and particularly, the picturesque Bay.

where the living areas flow into each other with effortless ease. This
planned use of space and proportion integrates the open plan gourmet
kitchen, custom built with natural wood and solid teak tops, with the
dining area which is fitted with an elegant antique fireplace and wooden
stackers that open up to reveal uninterrupted sea views. The ground floor

luxury study, with its own antique fireplace and wooden stackers that open
up to the terrace overlooking the garden with sea views over the bay.

beautifully appointed bedrooms. The Main bedroom en suite contains the very best finishes and fittings for the bath and glassed in shower. A walk in
dressing cupboard in solid wood with stylish glass inlays compliments the

antique fireplace is also a favourite entertainment area and is also
located on the upper floor. French doors lead to a wide balcony and

sounds of an abundant bird life, from Flamingos, Cormorants, Terns and many
The Villa Ibiza is walled with a private road entrance to three garages
all with doors of natural wood. Additional out buildings consists of
well-appointed staff accommodation with its own separate entrance.
Design ideals were also realised with the layout of perfectly placed
patios, a sparkling splash pool for those hot balmy days within the setting

to the exterior finishings with water from the rain gutters flowing into
and away in underground channels. At night integrated light fittings
