Inland Ibiza villas
Not only sea. Staying in the spectacular hinterland of island can be easier, more convenient and it's a trip into Ibiza cultural traditions.
When you think of Ibiza, you would think of a typical island culture, totally focused on the sea and the activities linked to it. In fact the island has a strong rural and peasant identity, linked to his countryside.
Despite the long-standing water shortage on the island, the inhabitants of Ibiza have always worked the land, making spectacular it's rich and wild nature.
The soul of Ibiza is therefore strongly linked to the land, with farming and breeding as the main traditional occupations.
The term 'payes', who in Ibiza indicates something that comes the countryside, is often viewed as synonymous with 'traditional', and not surprisingly the most typical Island houses are the 'casas de campo' (field houses).
The countryside of Ibiza indeed is a spectacle of Mediterranean nature: pine forests, citrus groves, fields of carobs, almonds and fruit trees of every kind.
WHY STAY INLAND
Residing right on the beach in Ibiza can be complicated. Because of both its nature and laws, the houses by the sea are few. And anyway choosing 'one' beach in particular makes little sense: the beauty of the island, with its 54 beaches and its small size, is to visit each day a different 'cala', pondering also the season and weather conditions.
Therefore the hinterland of Ibiza can be really a valuable option and deserves in all times of the year: beautiful in spring when it revive with flowering, in summer becomes a hideaway from the chaos of Ibiza town and most crowded coastal zones.
Who chooses and loves Ibiza, residents or visitors, often decide to reside inland for the special serenity that the colors and the scents of this spectacular landscape can instill.
Moreover in the innner villages, such as Santa Gertrudis, San Jose, San Carlos or San Miguel, lies the real traditional culture of Ibiza.
The sea is always close at hand and staying inland is a good excuse to rent a car and explore the island in all its corners.
