Spotlight on Santa Gertrudis

Spotlight on Santa Gertrudis

Spotlight on Santa Gertrudis

Nov 22 So, in our recent series of blogs, we have explored the five different municipalities of Ibiza, from the beautiful beaches of San Joan to the bustling capital of Ibiza Town and more, however, we feel that, although not officially a municipality, the thriving and picturesque town of Santa Gertrudis deserves its own special mention.. as it has so much to offer, from delicious dining destinations to beautiful boutiques and so much more..

Here are a few of our most favourite things about Santa Gertrudis. Known officially as Santa Gertrudis de Fruitera, due to its abundance of farming land which has produced some of the finest, locally grown fruit and vegetables to be found on the island for centuries, the idyllic town is situated in the very heart of the island, and its central point is undoubtedly the ancient whitewashed church, a historic building in a town steeped in tradition. Stroll through the main square and pay a visit to this most beautiful church, a marvel of traditional architecture.

The town attracts a very international, and mixed crowd, from the bohemian artists who flocked here in the sixties to enjoy the free and easy spirit of the town, and more recently, international families, many of whom choose to see Ibiza real estate in this areas because of the excellent private school, Morna Valley College, which has a reputation for being the very best on the island.

So, where to go if you are in need of refreshment? This is one thing you will have no trouble with in Santa Gertrudis. From the ingenious raw food dishes at Wild Beets, to the traditional jamon serrano served at Bar Costa, an Ibiza institution, there is something to suit every palate. We adore Macao Cafe, don´t be fooled by the name, this is a most stylish and elegant restaurant, which has been serving fine Italian cuisine to locals and holidaymakers alike for decades, and often attracts celebrity guests.

If you wish to indulge in some retail therapy then head to Sluiz, the renowned homeware and clothing store which sells some of the most unique, colourful and quirky soft furnishings, furniture and decorations, a one stop shop should you need to furnish your Ibiza villa in true style. Or head to Galeria Elefante, which stocks a wonderfully bohemian and elegant selection of clothing, artwork, accessories and everything else you can think of.

The Ibiza real estate in the area is very varied, ranging from remote traditional fincas to modern, minimalist newly built villas, elegant townhouses and many delightful apartment buildings, so whatever your taste or budget, Santa Gertrudis has the perfect option for everyone. As always, our experienced RE/MAX Isla Blanca Ibiza real estate agents are on hand to guide you through every step of the process.. all you have to do is decide which is YOUR dream Ibiza villa!

A Sumptuous and Sizzling Summer 2016

A Sumptuous and Sizzling Summer 2016

Aug 25 It’s already end of August, it´s hard to believe where has the time gone, and we are in full flow of yet another fabulous season on the magical White Island of Ibiza. This year has seen a dramatic increase in the number of visitors to Ibiza, with families, party animals and those who seek the quieter side of the island all flocking to enjoy the inimitable delights which Ibiza offers to everyone.

There has been a particularly noticeable rise in the number of high end beach clubs, elegant restaurants and bars popping up island wide, to cater for the more discerning clients, many of whom are visiting more and more, and yearning to find their own dream Ibiza villa. New additions to the scene include the beautiful Cala Bonita at S´Estanyol beach, a new gem in the fine dining scene, and some exciting new hotspots such as Heart Ibiza, enjoying its second season as an eclectic and enchanting club, restaurant and art market all rolled into one, a joint venture by the world famous Cirque de Soleil and the Adrià brothers, a magical venue which explores what wondrous things can happen when food, music and art collide.

This year in the dance club scene everyone is talking about the final year of the legendary superclub Space, which after 27 years of glory, will be handed back by the man who has made it such an iconic venue, Pepe Rosello, to its former owners at the end of this summer. Much speculation abounds as to what the venue will become in the future, but, in the meantime, the club is making sure its final season is going out with a bang, with Carl Cox and other Space residents consistently thrilling the crowds week after week.  On Sunday, 2nd October, the club will throw what will surely be the most highly anticipated closing party in Ibiza history, tears will be shed, memories will be made, and you can be part of this little piece of Ibiza history if you are lucky enough to be on the island at this time. Be sure to book tickets in advance as this will be a roadblock event!

The ports of Ibiza have never been busier, and on any given night you can marvel at the glittering array of superyachts and mega cruisers which line the ports of Marina Nueva, Marina Botafoch and Marina Ibiza. The capital of the island, Ibiza Town is well prepared for these well heeled visitors, with an abundance of fine dining restaurants, beautiful bars and of course the dazzling nightlife which Ibiza is so famous for, something to suit everyone´s tastes.

Holiday villa rentals have never been in higher demand, with many late bookers struggling to find a property to suit their requirements. Here at RE/MAX Isla Blanca, we have the finest selection of luxurious Ibiza villas on our books, whether you desire to be on the midst of the action close to Ibiza Town, or prefer the more bohemian, natural vibe of the North of the island, we have the perfect Ibiza holiday villa and you can rest assure that when you choose to rent through us, you are in the very best hands, with your every need taken care of. And we can guarantee, after just one visit to the White Island, you will fall under her magical spell, as so many have before you, and it won’t be long before you yearn to find your very own prime piece of Ibiza real estate.

So, what are you waiting for? Ibiza is here and ready to welcome you, we are on hand to assist you with all of your Ibiza property needs, be it renting or seeking your perfect forever home here on the island.

Spotlight on San Antonio

Spotlight on San Antonio

Spotlight on San Antonio

Aug 3 Spotlight on San Antonio

The vibrant, bustling and vibrant and ever popular resort of San Antonio has had more than its fair share of negative press in the past with reports of binge drinking and bad behaviour overshadowing the many advantages of the area. However, in recent years, due to much hard work from local authorities and business, the town has really cleaned up its act, and is fast developing into a much more upmarket, attractive area which has much to offer visitors and property seekers from all walks of life. Benefitting from a superb location in the sought after south west of the island, far away from the crowds of the centre of the town itself, you will discover some of the most magical villas for sale in Ibiza. Here´s just a few of the reasons why.

Sunsets

The Ibiza sunset is famous across the world, and there is nothing more enchanting than watching the sun make its final descent into the sea after yet another idyllic Ibizan day. San Antonio and its surrounding areas benefit from unrivalled sunset views, and there are many fabulous venues which have been designed specifically to enjoy this legendary sight. By far the most famous of these is the legendary Cafe del Mar, located on the Sunset Strip, where hundreds of people gather each evening to applaud natures most spectacular show, or head further North to the delightful Hostal La Torre, a boutique hotel, bar and restaurants located at Cap Negret which is a truly romantic, secluded spot to enjoy a well deserved cocktail at this magical moment.

Beaches

The municipality of San Antonio is blessed with some of the most beautiful beaches and most certainly the clearest waters on the island. For absolute tranquillity head to Cala Gracioneta where you can enjoy a long lazy lunch at the beautiful El Chiringuito restaurant, and uninterrupted views across the picturesque bay. Another stunning spot is Cala Salada, located just north of the main resort, surrounded by shady pine forests, a truly rustic, secluded and unspoilt cove where you can soak up the inimitable Ibiza ambience. Both of these bays are surrounded by incredible countryside and many Ibiza villas offering stunning views across this most beautiful of coastlines.

Wine and Dine

Step away from the busy streets of the town centre and you will discover some of the most unique, charming and timeless restaurants which Ibiza has to offer. We will let you in on our three favourites, but shhh.. don´t tell everyone! For a touch of true Ibicencan tradition take the road towards Sana Agnes and you will find Sa Cappella, an beautifully restored ancient church which has been lovingly transformed into a high class eaterie, retaining all of its traditional charm and serving a delightful mixture of classic meat and fish dishes, all of the very highest quality. For an unforgettable dining experience with a view over the dazzling marina, head to Villa Mercedes, known as the jewel in the crown of San Antonio, a pretty and bohemian old villa which has several indoor sections and luxurious outdoor Moroccan style terraces where you can enjoy their Mediterranean fusion menu whilst watching the world go by. This little gem is open all year round and attracts a loyal clientele of both locals and holidaymakers alike. Finally, if you feel like mixing your Spanish experience with a touch of Italia, then look no further than Las Dos Lunas, an impossibly romantic setting just outside of the main town towards San Rafael, where the bougainvillea covered courtyard is decorated with thousands of fairy lights which twinkle away as you soak up the eclectic atmosphere and the divine Italian cuisine.

So, when thinking of your ideal location for your very own piece of prime Ibiza real estate, don´t dismiss San Antonio, the area has an abundance of benefits, from the legendary sunsets to some seriously spectacular Ibiza villas, and some of the most scenic countryside to be found anywhere on the island.

Ibiza 2016 Closing Parties

Ibiza 2016 Closing Parties

Ibiza 2016 Closing Parties

Sep 22 As we prepare to bid a fond farewell to another glorious season on the magical island of Ibiza, we can barely believe that Summer 2016 is already drawing to an end. After many vibrant and bustling months in the REMAX office, we have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the season, and are happy to have helped so many of our clients to make their Ibiza real estate dreams come true. However, the temperatures may have dropped, but the Ibiza weather still blesses us with plenty of heart warming sunshine, and.. we still have a few more weeks of partying, in Ibiza´s own inimitable style, with the much lauded closing party season in full swing. Here we offer you a selection of our favourite closing fiestas for your to enjoy under the warm autumnal nights.

Friday 23rd September  – Defected presents Glitterbox Closing at Space

Glitterbox attracts, as the name suggests, a glittering, glamorous crowd of all ages, who come to enjoy the classic house tunes provided by the DJ´s many of whom belong to the Defected record label. This year has seen Glitterbox enjoy bigger success than ever before, consistently drawing the crowds week after week. The grand finale will take place at Space, the most iconic of Ibiza nightclubs, on Friday 23rd September, with celebrated music makers such as Todd Terry and Joey Negro providing the soundtrack to your evening.

Saturday 24th September – ANTS Closing Party at Ushuaia

The weekly ANTS parties at Ushuaia have become something of a cult hit in recent years, with a hip, cool collective heading down to the shore of Playa ´den Bossa to shake their stuff in the afternoon sunshine to some serious techno and electro music. Groundbreaking DJ´s, the funky setting of the sprawling Ushuaia complex and the open air arena makes this a hard act to beat. Andrea Oliva and Joris Voorn will headline the party, alongside Maya Jane Coles and Nic Fanciulli who will be keeping the beats flowing throughout the event..

Monday 26 September  – Flower Power at Pacha

If you are looking for a closing party which welcomes one and all, and will delight revellers of all ages and cultures, then look no further than the iconic Flower Power final fiesta at arguably Ibiza’s most famous superclub, Pacha. Don your funkiest flares, fluff your afro, and dig out your most outrageously colourful outfits for this fun, frivolous and funky celebration of the music we all adore from the 60´s and 70´s, with a modern day twist. DJ Pitti, one of the founders of this legendary Ibiza club has run this party for decades, and he will, as always, be at the helm, making sure the music keeps everyone dancing all night long, with local Pacha residents Willie Graff and Graham Sahara keeping things funky upstairs on the terrace.. 

Wednesday 28 September Paradise Closing at DC10 

In the past DC10 has earned it clubbing stripes as the most underground Ibiza venue, showcasing upcoming and groundbreaking DJ´s and gaining a reputation for being the place to see and be seen if you´re a serious mover and shaker on the club scene. For years, it was dominated by the Monday Circoloco parties, but in the last three years, the newcomers Paradise and their collection of cutting edge talent and stellar lineup of DJ´s have been shining brightly and have effortlessly created a new ´must do´night on any die hard clubbers agenda. They will be going out with a bang on Wednesday 28 September, with a frankly hard to beat cast of musical superstars, including DC10 stalwart Jamie Jones, headlining, with the likes of Hot Since ´82, Eats Everything and Richy Ahmed, plus many more big names bringing their fabulous summer to a sizzling climax.

Sunday 2nd October  – Space Closing – The Ultimate Closing Party

And so, to conclude, the one party EVERYONE is talking about is of course the final Space Closing Party. After 25 years of this most iconic of Ibiza´s clubs, which has been managed with love and passion by Ibiza legend Pepe Rosello for two and a half decades, the time has come for the lease to be handed back to the landowners, and the future of this club which has been a monumental influence on many Ibiza visitors for years is undecided. What we can be sure of is that the closing party this October is going to be one of the most highly attended, significant and legendary parties the island will ever have seen.. Carl Cox, who many people view as the definitive DJ of this much loved Ibiza club will be headlining, along with Tale of Us, Josh Wink and Steve Bug, plus dozens of local and international DJ´s who will surely all be shedding  tear as we say goodbye to the place where so many memories have been made. One not to be missed..

So, should you have the energy to drag yourself away from your own piece of paradise in your Ibiza villa, and want to get into the party spirit then there are many options to suit every taste and musical likes on this island which has been for so long a haven for clubbers, free spirits and thrill seekers.

Here at REMAX Ibiza real estate, we hope you enjoy every second, and remember, should you fall under the mystical spell of Ibiza, as so many before you have, then we are on hand to cater for your every need, be it Ibiza villa holiday rentals, or purchasing your own piece of Ibiza real estate heaven, we have the knowledge and customer dedication that you need.

RE/MAX ESPAÑA, RATED BEST REAL ESTATE COMPANY BY SPANISH CONSUMERS

RE/MAX ESPAÑA, RATED BEST REAL ESTATE COMPANY BY SPANISH CONSUMERS

RE/MAX ESPAÑA, RATED BEST REAL ESTATE COMPANY BY SPANISH CONSUMERS

<

Jan 11 RE/MAX España is the best rated brand by Spaniards, among 11 real estate brands involved in this study, doubling the score obtained by the brand placed in 2nd position.

Madrid, January 2016. RE/MAX España, the leading international franchise sales network, has been chosen as the best rated real estate brand in our country by “Elección del consumidor”. “Elección del consumidor” is a brand evaluation and classification system based on satisfaction and acceptance generated among consumers, with the sole purpose of determining satisfaction and acceptability degree in relation to a product or service, by helping customers to make a purchase or get an optimal service.

After its success in Portugal “Elección del consumidor” arrived to Spain in 2014 and focused on the products and services universe available in the market. Then, in 2015 this seal of quality analyzed consumer’s opinions about real estate services, when RE/MAX España was the best rated real estate brand by Spaniards, among 11 that have been involved in this study, doubling the score obtained by the brand placed in 2nd position.

Among the most remarkable results obtained by “Consumer Choice” within the real estate segment, it is worth highlighting the five most valued attributes by Spaniards regarding the services offered by a real estate agency: 1. Agents, their credibility and market knowledge; 2. Complete description of properties and areas; 3. Property portfolio (quantity and variety): 4. Follow-up process; 5. Transparency in Agent’s Fees.

At the time of the analysis, “Elección del consumidor” has taken a total of 2,144 people living in Spain, men and women, between ages of 18 and 65 as a sample. The evaluation process, carried out from July to September 2015, comprised four phases: Closed questions questionnaire development, made by ConsumerCoiche-Customer Satisfaction Evaluation Center and Netsonda Group, Identification of key attributes for consumers (Focus Group Online methodology), listing of the most valued attributes; which once established and classified, conducted to the evaluation of brands through ‘mystery shopping’, analyzing attention to phone calls and visits made to real estate offices by false clients.

In the case of RE/MAX España, 30 offices were sampled throughout the country and chosen at random by “Elección del consumidor”, and as a consequence RE/MAX España was ranked as the best rated brand by consumers in our country.

A result obtained thanks to, among many other aspects, exhaustive market studies conducted by our agents, with the intention of getting a correct valuation of the real estate, in order to sell it at the best price and at the shortest time possible. Another aspect of credibility and trust is exclusive work. At RE/MAX, we only capture exclusive properties, the reason why our agents have a properties portfolio to work on in a constant and customized way. This exclusive work makes agents absolutely responsible for selling their portfolio of houses and combining all necessary efforts to position them and thus locate the ideal buyer.

Another aspect to take into account is the fact that each RE/MAX agent has an average of 15-20 properties captured exclusively, being able to ensure the service your property deserves. This way, the agent assures the selling client that a complete and exhaustive description of the property will be displayed on RE/MAX’s website, as well as on most recognized real estate portals in Spain, where there will not be lack of information about property typology, location, general description – which includes characteristics of the house in which you are interested, household dwelling (in order to avoid unpleasant surprises), as well as area description.

It is pertinent to mention the section dedicated to fees, the 5th most valued aspect by consumers in a real estate agency. For that matter, it is worth noting that our agents only charge their fees if they have achieved the expected results, i.e., in the event that there has been no sale or rent, the customer will never make any payment. Without final surprises and making everything very clear from the beginning: fees ranges between 4% and 6% of the final price of sale; An amount that is assumed by selling customers, since they are the people who have worked with our agent.

Certainly, these are very positive results which emphasize the comprehensive work and professionalism of more than 1,600 RE/MAX agents which work in Spain.
