Although Ibiza is perhaps best known as a party hotspot – boasting some of Europe’s best night clubs and bars – the Balearic island has in recent years emerged as the ultimate escape for travellers seeking new levels of opulence.
The Fincadelica Collection – which is behind some of the destination’s most extraordinary homes – has revealed its latest exclusive-hire property, bringing authentic bohemian barefoot luxury to the north of the island.
Surrounded by fragrant pines and crystal-clear waters, Fincadelica Xarraca is a magnificent eight-bedroom 3,000 square metre coastal estate overlooking the shores of Cala Xarraca Bay.
The property is one of the largest beach-side properties on the island and with every window looking out over the sea, it is easy to believe that you are on board a superyacht.
The property offers direct access to the beach via a private gate which leads to a coastal path, a secret cove with fisherman’s huts and a local restaurant.
Using a mix of one-off vintage pieces, and design icons and an unpretentious yet super stylish level of comfort and sophistication, designer Carmen Straatsma has created houses with personality yet which also feel like home from home.
The property has been designed with the concept that Ibiza, like Mallorca, is becoming a year long destination.
Each of Fincadelica Xarraca’s rooms have fireplaces for cozy winter stays with huge bathrooms, and are completely light filled.
Showstopper suites include an enormous 110 square meter penthouse with wrap around sea views from its terraces, with bath tub and sinks in black clay by Studio Loho, featuring a freestanding custom bed and two Valentine Schlegel inspired fireplaces.
The hub of Fincadelica Xarraca is a spacious open plan living and dining room, where ancient terracotta amphorae flank a serene arched doorway.
Rustic wooden doors open onto a soaring living space with double-height ceilings, metre-thick stone walls and traditional sabina beams, whose evocative pine fragrance permeates the house.
Floor-to-ceiling windows flood the space with light, highlighting a cluster of rust velvet Arflex Marenco sofas, while mid-century lounge chairs and primitive stools surround a polished stone coffee table.
Living areas are lavish. For party nights, guests can enjoy a soundproofed cosy club room with parquet wood flooring perfect for late night events, lit by soft vintage Murano lighting.
An enormous croissant sofa by Hans Hopfer for Wiener Werkstatte, upholstered in green chenille, echoes the sea-green marble counter tops. A chill-out salon (perfect for the morning after) contains a sumptuous round sofa bed.
The dining area houses a custom made table by Can Castello and chairs by Casa Miday with vintage burned Murano glass pendants providing atmospheric lighting above the table.
The kitchen is decorated with pink checkered tiles and a red La Canche stove with a guest friendly pantry full of snacks and refreshments and of course a fabulously stocked wine cellar.
Fincadelica Xaracca also has a library with an Angela Damman limited edition KAU chair as well as a beautiful round vintage Swedish rug and GUBI croissant chairs to curl up and read a book in.
Ibiza has a reputation as a hub of modern healing, and the island is home to some of the planet’s finest therapists.
Hosts can arrange massage, acupuncture, reiki, reflexology, yoga, breathwork, cacao ceremonies, human design readings, cranio-sacral therapy, facials, along with beauty treatments such as hair and nails. Gym equipment by Pent is available on request.
The team behind The Fincadelica Collection are Mati Rachminov, business owner of one of the most prestigious diamond suppliers in the world, and Serena Cook, founder and owner of Deliciously Sorted, Ibiza’s legendary concierge company for the luxury market. Their mission is to reinterpret high end hospitality.
