Ethereal hideaway for castaways
On a plateau that is the highest point of Formentera, is the solitary and luxury holiday home of an international celebrity, which masterfully integrates into its surroundings and commanding 360 degrees of vista out to sea overlooking pine forests, fig and carob trees, dunes and scrub. It is most compelling setting and the villa is within a planned but naturally evolving 18,000 sq. m garden, which is bordered by a perimeter of roses and is home to a swimming pool matching the colour of the turquoise sea beyond. The deliberate, simple and artisan-like quality of this villa makes it a unique addition to the holiday rental market located a mere five minutes by car from the nearest beach (‘Es Calo’). Reached by a dirt road that runs between vineyards, the villa is the dream project of the owner in collaboration with local architects and a top interior decorator. The goal was to create a home that is “powerful and silent, modern but rooted in its vernacular roots, fused with the earth, relaxed”. The succeeded and added a lovely“no decoration” charm to the decor stamped with delightful mix and match of “boho chic”: various fibres, natural and vegetable; Argentine textiles and African rugs on the floors; varicoloured and patterned pillows; local knickknacks and mementos from travels worldwide; woven and sturdy wood furniture, doors without frames or knobs and kitchen set with mod cons. The seeming block composition of the villa from outside belies its distinctive white, modular and cubic interior in which the living spaces effortlessly flow from one to the other, while the living room terrace with its bamboo canopy adds more to the illusion of being in the midst of nature.
Sleeping a maximum of 8, this special luxury retreat offers 4 bedrooms including a master and every room within the villa has direct access out into the garden. This is a super holiday retreat for relaxing with a good book or in which to chill out in the company of friends in tasteful private luxury. The beautiful scenery is ever present through the marvellous panorama provided by the villa’s location; whether from the rectangular nave of the living room and out onto terrace and garden and from the comfort of either weathered armchairs, hammocks made of leaves or poolside sun beds. As discrete lighting illuminates the exterior walls, nighttime meals and gatherings on the terrace add yet another dimension to general air of timeless tranquility.
The villa is an island idyll ideal for abandoning oneself to the ‘dolce far niente’ vibe of Formentera, which remains one of the few undeveloped islands left in the Mediterranean. So, whether you are discerningly adventurous or a wannabe castaway, here is a perfect spot in which to go ‘primitive’; barefoot in nature and in fine comfort.
