It may be a small Spanish island in the Mediterrean Sea but Ibiza has a big reputation as the place to party. Yet you could show off your moves at the pulsating clubs at night but then wake up the next day to the sound of bird song, the view of pretty flowers and gardens and the shimmering blue waters of a swimming pool at the self-catering Villa Can Rei.
This plush five-bedroom villa (sleeps 11) is ideally located too. It is tucked away in the tranquil, rural area of San Jordi, which happens to be the closest village to the airport – a mere 10-minute drive. And as night draws in, you could head back to Ibiza Town and the action at Playa d’en Bossa within 15 minutes.
Sleeping up to eleven people, Villa Can Rei is ideal for holidaying with the extended family or a group of friends. It’s large pool area with several sunbeds, a substantial BBQ area and large alfresco dining table means celebrating a special anniversary or birthday or even a stag or hen do is easy.
