Use your private villa as a home base and spend lazy days exploring quaint rural villages and secluded sandy beaches with panoramic seascape views. Ibiza conjures up fragrant pine forests and rural farmland. Wander past ancient vineyards and orchards of almonds, lemons and figs grown in warm-toned soil against the deep blue of the sea. Discover rocky coves along the shore, and stop to swim in the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean. Take the opportunity to try your hand at watersports like sailing, kayaking and windsurfing. When it is time for lunch, visit the charming old city of Dalt Vila to find a local restaurant serving delicious tapas , small plates of seafood and more . Stroll along cobbled streets lined with boutique shops, scenic plazas and spectacular miradores, views from the heights. Then stop at one of the easy music restaurants on the beach offering lounge chairs and umbrellas so you can fully appreciate the laid back groove of the island. Be sure to stay for a drink as the sun sinks into the water at beach bars like Cala de Bou, Café del Mar at Sant Antoni and Ashram at Cala Conta.
