What we love
Part Balinese tree-house, part ‘Thunderbird Island’ and achingly cool. Can Spectra is totally unique and an amazing mixture of modern minimalism and asian hippy charm... this property could only be found in Ibiza. Utterly and completely stunning – from it’s location, outside spaces, views and character, this villa made such an impression on us (and also apparently on several of its previous A-list guests....but our lips are sealed!)
The first thing that strikes you about this unique villa is its stunning location, and the way that the various outside terraces have been built to make the most of the breathtaking views and endless horizon. Looking directly out over Es Vedra and Formentera, you are not only offered views of the famous Ibiza sunset, but also the sunrise too. We literally stopped and stared when we first arrived at Can Spectra.
However, you then enter the house itself and it is the very definition of ‘wow-factor’! The villa is quite literally built into the rock at the top of a cliff and the whole of the back walls are bare stone, which contrasts beautifully with the modern, curved glass front of the villa.
The interior of the main part of the house has a strong Asian influence with Balinese tables, huge sofas and statues, and has a laid-back, stylish hippy vibe.
The ground floor is totally open plan with large living, kitchen and bar areas, which then merges into the master suite bedroom, which is hidden behind thick curtains. This room has an ensuite bathroom complete with overflow Jacuzzi!
A similar huge room encompasses the one-space lower level, which has a double bed, small kitchen area, wet room and even a hot tub perfectly positioned so that you can bathe with a view! Below this, accessed by a windy staircase, is the third bedroom, which has an incredible outdoor bathroom and which is more of a ‘lover’s nest’ cut into the rock, than a large bedroom, but it’s incomparable and utterly charming – almost like very glamorous camping.
In between each level you will find exterior wooden staircases, terraces, plunge pools, ponds and even wooden ladders! ‘Flying terraces’ make you feel that you are on the edge of the world. We especially love the way that various hidden sun terraces and day beds are tucked away around every corner, so even in the middle of one of the legendary parties that this villa was quite obviously made to host, you would still be able to find some peace or solitude. The piece de resistance is the massive roof terrace, with day beds and a bar area, which is potentially the most amazing party venue you will ever have experienced.
1 x Master suite with en-suite bathroom, waterfall jacuzzi, lounge, bar open plan kitchen and a breathtaking sun-terrace with views to die for.
1 x Lower suite with en-suite bathroom, kitchen, stunning views of the sea and terrace next to a lily pond.
1 x Double bedroom - This room is cut into the rock and is like a tree house! with a quirky outside bathroom and kitchen. Looking from the bed through double French doors opening onto a little balcony, you can see
Calla Jondal and beyond which gives you an instant sense of escape, renewal and connection with nature.
