Sense the real Ibicencan lifestyle so well explained by 2 authors



Updated: 25-Sep-2016
The Real Ibicencan Life: 2 Books Have Been Written About This Valley

Are you looking to sense the real Ibicencan life style in Ibiza?

Leif Borthen (1911-1979) was a Norwegian journalist & author and student of art history at the Royal Frederick University. In 1932 he gave up these studies and head for Spain where he lived in a colony of artists which included Jacob Brinchmann and René Paul Gauguin. In 1933 he moved to Ibiza and settled in the remote village of Sant Vicent de sa Cala in the north east of Ibiza in a finca owned by the father of the owner of this villa.

At the outbreak of the Second World War, Borthen went to London, later to Argentina.

And as all do! Borthen returned to Sant Vicente, purchased a house and continued to write from there. In 1967 he published “The Road to San Vicente'. Borthen continued to write and live on the Cala until his death in 1979.

“A way of live you need to sense before you die!”

... around the hills of this real Ibicencan villa “Vista Belvédère”.

A beautiful Ibicencan villa only 7min. from the beach Cala san Vicente: a white, sandy beach suitable for children. Otherwise less then 5min from a hidden beach, Ses Caletes (one of the few beaches you can still bathe in full privacy).

The villa is embraced by a magnificent spacious garden of 25,000m² surrounded by pine trees and almond trees, ... and sun-soaked terraces.

In this quiet part of Ibiza, you will be able to really relax and unwind, together with friends and family.

The Villa:

Vista Bélvèdere is a masterpiece of Ibicencan and eco-friendly construction which will open up the countryside of Ibiza for you to enjoy again and again.

The villa has a stunning façade, with natural stone and white walls and has many unique architectural features.

Vista Bélvèdere has history in its heart and surroundings with the bright newness of a lovingly restored finca that has been decorated using natural materials throughout, ceramic floor tiles and solid oak furniture give an air of real quality and antique charm to this rustic Ibicencan villa.

The Interior:

This villa is built on one floor of 250 m2 with an open concept: spaciousness and light, and has many high quality features, including the solid walls that are more than one meter thick and give the perfect isolation against the high temperatures in the summer months, washed in white colours they retain the dappled texture of natural stone.

The interiors display a rustic splendour with high ceilings and juniper and olive trunk beams.

The house has a large distributor that leads directly to the terrace, the kitchen, dining room, lounge and give access to the bedrooms.

This Ibicencan villa has 5 Bedrooms

2 large double suites with en-suite bathrooms:

• The master bedroom is situated in front of the pool.

• The Master suite has a superb full bathroom with 500L hydro-massage Jacuzzi where you can refresh yourself in style.

3 twin bedrooms;

• One with en suite bathroom

• in front of the pool, on request the 4th bedroom with 2 single beds.

• on request the 5th room with bunk bed to sleep 2 extra children < 12 years.

The villa has a lovely designed lounge with comfortable seating for 8. In keeping with the rest of the house the lounge has rustic features including an cozy open fireplace and juniper and olive beamed ceiling.

The villa comprises of a fully fitted open kitchen with a spacious storeroom, ample equipment including a dishwasher, microwave, washing machine…etc.

All rooms ooze Ibizan lifestyle thanks to the use of fine and first-class materials; the splendid choice of furniture and the style of architecture give it an extraordinary charm.

The Outside:

Following is the pool terrace, where you can take a dip and cool always accompanied the greenery surrounding the house.

Beside the swimming pool sits a open air Barbecue area for lunches or dining 'al-fresco', so that you can stay out late into the warm evenings dining and entertaining in the most natural of surroundings admiring the beautiful view and enjoying some nice sunsets over the Ibiza hills.

The beach:

• Cala san Vicente, a wide sandy beach, only 7 min away. There's always room for your kids to play or just to lay down and enjoy the sun.

• Ses Caletes, one of those beaches hidden from mass tourism to enjoy sunbathing in full privacy. Only 1.4km away (as the crow flies) less then 5 min of your precious holiday time to find that peace and tranquillity you are looking for.

Even for die-hard swimmers and sunbathers, sometimes a day at the beach is anything but. You know the drill: too many people, too much noise, not nearly enough serenity to enjoy the majesty of blue skies and white-crested waves.

The good news is that there are still undiscovered beaches out there, blissful hideaways where tourism hasn’t yet eclipsed the local culture. Ses Caletes is one of them.

This Ibicencan villa let you feel again:

- Space to breath,

- rediscover your privacy you’ve lost in big brother world

- real Ibicencan life around a hidden place so strong that a second book was written about the cala by Alexis Brown “ a valley wide”

“Total physical and mental inertia are highly agreeable...a beach not only permits such inertia, but enforces it, thus neatly eliminating all problems of guilt. It is now the only place in our overly active world that does.”

Schöne großzügige Finca mit Pool in Top-Lage.

  • 5 of 5

Die Finca liegt traumhaft schön, man überblickt von der großen Terrasse mit Pool das ganze bewaldeteTal. Das Haus ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, ist gepflegt und großzügig geschnitten mit drei separaten Schlafzimmern (für je zwei Personen) mit eigenen Bädern. Weitere Schlafgelegenheiten in zusätzlichen Räumen. Die Fotos auf der Website geben im übrigen einen sehr guten und zutreffenden Eindruck. Das Haus liegt ausgesprochen ruhig und abgelegen, man benötigt also auf jeden Fall ein Auto, braucht damit aber beispielsweise zur Cala de Sant Vicent weniger als 10 Minuten.

Ich würde dieses Haus jederzeit wieder buchen und kann es jedem nur empfehlen.

From the Owner

# FAQ: Q) Who carries out property end cleaning + washing of linen&towels? A) The owner cannot offer this service, so a 3rd party Cleaning company provides this for you. Q) Why are linen&towels not included in the Property End Cleaning? A) Time required to wash & iron all linen&towels for 2 people is much less compared to a group of 10 Cleaners are paid on an hourly basis, therefore more time means greater cost, hence the 20€/person for linen&towels. In essence “you only pay for what you use” Q) What is difference in total required cleaning (incl. linen&towels) time between 2 and 10 people? A) ± 12,5h for a couple and ± 22h for a group of 10 Cleaning company rates are 14€/h+VAT Q) What about asking ONE high end cleaning price that includes linen&towels? A) The advertising price is set before any bookings are made, so the only way the cleaning company can avoid risk of losses, would be to ask the max.cleaning cost for 10 people= 22h x14€/h+VAT =372,68€ However 372€ would only be fair to groups of 10 but would discriminate against all smaller groups, especially a couple. Q) Why not just include the cleaning cost in the total rent? A) Tenants who rent for multiple weeks should not pay multiple times for END cleaning. Regardless if you rent for a week or 2 months, you only pay it once. Q) How about zero cleaning cost & ensuring tenants clean the property themselves before check-out? A) Most tenants do not wish the burden of having to clean the property at the end of their holiday and appreciate paying the fee to not clean themselves. We only can guarantee that the property will be consistently totally clean for the next tenants if done by a professional cleaning company. Q) What is the total end cleaning cost with linen&towels for a couple or 10 people? A) 209€ for a couple= 169€ for property end cleaning paid during booking +(2x 20€=)40€ for linen/towels paid on arrival 369€ for Group of 10= 169€ paid during booking +(10x20€=)200€ for linen/towels paid on arrival
