Santa Gertrudis - San Lorenzo
Standing proud in the heart of the countryside between Santa Gertrudis and San Lorenzo, is this lovely 4 bedroom 3 bathroom villa, which manages to exude the feeling of total privacy and ‘remoteness’, and yet still have neighbours in relative proximity and within walking distance, so as to feel part of the little valley community that has been created here.
Set over 11000sqm of usable land, with it´s own well and water supply, this villa is over 260sqm in build size, includes a pool of around 30sqm that catches the sun all day, and is only a 7 minute drive into the heart of the pretty village of Santa Gertrudis in the centre of the island.
The modern looking villa was built in 2008 and is set over a ground and first floor with an additional separate 4th bedroom and bathroom in the basement which has it´s own separate access - perfect for wayward teenagers or distant relatives!
The ground floor has an open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area, all looking out onto the pool and gardens, with a large open fireplace and the first bedroom and bathroom.
Upstairs are two more double bedrooms and bathrooms, both looking out to the fore, and with patio doors opening onto the large first floor terrace.
The house is approached via a long private driveway shared with another ‘hidden’ neighbour and the large gardens and relatively flat lands can be seen along the approach with the house stanley proudly to the rear. Once through the electric gates there is easy acces to the entrance to the house, the terraces, outdoor grill, swimming pool and lower ground floor bedroom.
On the land one can also see the stone well, which provides the villa with it´s own private unlimited water source.
Set in a valley, surrounded by nature, and close to Santa Gertrudis, this villa really is suitable either for summer fun or for all year round living.

LOCATION - CENTRAL
Recommended Beaches : The beauty of being in the centre of the island is that most of the beaches are no more than a 20 minute drive away.
The heart of the island is spread across and between four of its towns, running from San Rafael in the southern part, through Santa Gertrudis and San Lorenzo, and up to San Miguel further to the north. Virtually all of the beaches are less than half an hour’s drive away.
Each of these towns has their own characteristics and identity, and of course gastronomic feasts galore, with the San Juan road which links them and is effectively the spine of the island, being known as ‘Restaurant Road’. This 7-8 km stretch of modernised road hosts none other than at least 10 must-try eateries, serving up anything from Meditteranean fusion and Thai, to Italian, Japanese and traditional Ibicenco fare. Pristine white washed churches, local schools, farms, and orange groves stretch across the Morna Valley, together with historic ruins and numerous Agroturismo hotels.
Of the four towns, Santa Gertrudis is perhaps the most amenable to tourists and locals alike (as well as being the largest), growing hugely in popularity over the last few years or so with Northern Europeans moving to Ibiza for the sun and relaxed island life, but also wanting to stay a little bit apart from the slightly more hedonistic south. Centred around a beautiful square surrounded by bars, restaurants, auction houses, and sports facilities, and just two minutes from the rapidly growing UK private school Morna International College, Santa Gertrudis provides a busy yet relaxed and positive vibe 365 days a year.
