About Desmond Aspill
We Family Fitness retreats at the house so I would have to say sport.
I love dogs and hiking
Eating vegetables grown on the land
I am privileged enough to live on this beautiful island and I would like it to stay beautiful so believe in recycling and looking after the planet.
I also love showing it off so ask me anything or where to go and I will happily tell you
Desmond Aspill purchased this villa in 2013
Why Desmond Aspill chose Sant Joan de Labritja (San Juan)
I have had the house for 2 years where I have done a lot to modernise but keep the character of the house
The house is very old and has great history
We have lots of fertile land and can pretty much grow anything
The quiet surrounding countryside has such a soothing and healing effect its a perfect retreat space
What makes this villa unique
We have our own well water from a very deep artesion well
The air quality is second to none I feel like I will definitely live longer if I stay here
We have a feeling of being remote but so easy to get into town. We have the best of both worlds I count myself so lucky everyday.

A healthy holiday shouldn't be such fun
Superb, villa surrounded by Avocado orchards in a peaceful rural setting north of Ibiza town. Tastefully appointed, comfortable and totally welcoming. Jose's delicious home cooked and healthy meals felt well earned after Des's punishing but professional fitness training. Who'd have thought you could have such a great time in Ibiza and come back feeling and looking better than before you flew to "the party island". I will be back and recommend this to anyone who is serious about a feel great holiday.
Glamorous Home Away From Home.
Des and Jose are perfect hosts. At Casa Tekne we enjoyed quiet nights and relaxed days. Every morning there was a lovely breakfast cooked by Jose, featuring vegetables from the garden and gorgeous eggs from the chickens.
The house is beautifully decorated, the grounds are well-kept and the vibe is very healthy. Des, a gymnastics and fitness coach invites you to work-out or hosts in any activities like horse-back riding or kayaking. They both know a lot about Ibiza and are great resources for exploring the island.
My Mom and I stayed for ten days. We came as guests and left as friends.
The perfect getawy.
This is not our first time at the property. We visited it many times at different times of year. And the more we go the more we get attached.
My husband and I just love it.
The comfortable villa with it's beautiful Spanish style, the tranquility of the place, the open field, the beautiful breeze, and of course, during summer, the swimming pool are all attracting factors.
We start the day with having breakfast at the outdoor dining table and enjoy the sound of "nothingness". After the hustle and bustle of everyday life, one needs this.
Then we would either take a swim or just sit and read a book.
We hardly leave the place to go to town. We are looking for calmness, and for us this is the right place.
We always make sure to take a week's vacation from our vacation and come here. It refills us with all the needed positive energy.
We also took advantage of the gym inside the property. We had a personal trainer who came every other day and helped us stay in shape.
Overall, our stay was exactly what we were looking for.
Beautiful villa in the tranquil north of Ibiza
I had the pleasure of staying at the Tekne Fitness villa earlier this year. The pictures don't do it justice. It's beautifully laid out and retains an authentic, true Ibizan feel with its original fixtures and features. The pool area is beautifully laid out and with plenty of shady spots to escape the heat.
The property is very well maintained - the villa itself is cleaned on a regular basis which is great because no one wants to worry about that when you're on holiday.
Des and Jose gave me such a warm welcome it was as if I was part of the family. The love and care they put into the property is clearly evident. On request Jose would whip up the most delicious meals from produce he had grown on the land and he cold tell you all about the horticulture of the island.
Des is a total character - with a background in fitness and gymnastics I got to train in the most fantastic outdoor gym and do lots of fun stuff like trampolining and he even got me doing somersaults!
Away from that, they were big incredibly considerate and only got involved as much as I asked them to. It meant I had plenty of time to just hang out at the villa and relax without ever feeling like I had to be doing something.
Des is very well connected across the island and was able to get us good deals for boat hire and other fun activities.
The villa is located close to Sant Miquel which isn't the most exciting of towns. But it's perfectly located for Benirras which is one of my favourite beaches. It's also a short drive to Santa Getrudis which has lovely cafes and restaurants.
The busier southern and western ends of the islands are a maximum 30min drive so it was easy enough to get my fix of the bigger clubs and bars. Cab rides back to the villa from Ibiza Town were no more than €35 so pretty cheap split between four of us. And I loved being able to escape the madness to my own private little oasis.
Not only do I recommend hiring this villa, I'm actually going back again myself this season and will probably make its an annual holiday. It's really good value compared to other properties and the added customer service flair of Des and Jose makes this the best Ibizan experience you could wish for.
Just love it!
I've been to the Tekne Villa twice now and I must say I really love it! It is situated in the heart of the beautiful island of Ibiza and is surrounded by a lovely countryside. You can easily relax in this luxurous villa that is fully equipped and has everything your heart desires. The manager Des is the kindest person I've ever met and he knows Ibiza like the back of his hand. So he can give you any information you need.
I've been on a Fitness Retreat there and I had a fantastic time combining high-quality work out and hiking / biking in the stunning mountains with relaxing hours at the pool/ the beach or on a boat trip to Formentera. The food was fantastic. Jose cooked very tasty and healthy meals for us. The vegetables and fruit were all organic and mainly home-grown. After only one week I came home feeling fit, healthy and completely renewed!
I highly recommend to spend your holidays in Tekne Villa, either just to relax from your stressful everday life or to improve with your fitness and do something for yourself and your body. You won't regret it!
Beautiful, peaceful and sublime!
Arriving at the property down a small side track (they will give you great directions) you don't expect the luxury that awaits to greet you as it does.
The setting alone is fantastic - peaceful with the perfect combination of views and privacy but still has that longed for silence at night (and means you don't have to feel guilty when playing about in the gardens, gym or fantastic pool).
The villa exceeded my expectations too. Excellent layout, beautiful rooms, more than enough space for everyone. We tended to spend most of our time outside using the gorgeous shaded terraces to eat and relax (especially with some wine after supper), so hardly used the many internal social spaces which was a shame because they are fabulously done.
The kitchens are fully equipped and having the water filter taps was an added bonus. We were lucky enough to be given some delicious organic vegetables (grown by them on the land next to the villa) by the owners (grown by them on the land next to the villa) who were really helpful and gave us some great tips on walks, beaches and activities (horse riding, kayaking, boat trips etc.). There are plenty of little shops in the local towns (we walked up a few times as well as drove) and the range of restaurants is fantastic. There are secluded bays and beaches on the nearby coast which were our favourite but we found the drives to more central/popular areas easy too if that is what you prefer.
All around we loved our stay and we felt spoilt for having this incredible place all to ourselves. I would highly recommend it, especially to family groups or those wanting a 'Chilled Ibiza' experience. Rustic luxury at its best.
