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.
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.
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.
