Sant Antoni, natural appeal
here are as many versions of Sant Antoni as there are ways to enjoy it. The municipality’s leisure options offer a whole range of attractions that have positioned it as one of the most popular destinations in the Mediterranean. Culture, cuisine, climate and heritage are just some of the attractions. But, without a doubt, the most important aspect is nature and the scenery. On the long coastline of the municipality there are coves with transparent waters and spectacular cliffs, the fields of crops in the flat areas, between stone terraces with fertile reddish soil, are surrounded by thick forests on rugged mountainsides. And the whiteness of the farmhouses and rural churches is complemented by the charm of the small villages that dot the landscape. All of this makes up a landscape of outstanding beauty.
The peacefulness and character of the Ibizan countryside can be experienced in all its fullness with top quality accommodation options, such as holiday cottages, rural hotels and hotels with charm. Whether you are a couple, a family, a group or a single person, Sant Antoni’s holiday cottages and rural hotels offer personalised packages that adapt to any profile and guarantee a fulfilling experience. The small size of the island also means that you can reach any part of Ibiza in a very short time, which is an added attraction of the rural location of the accommodation. For those who are already planning their getaway, here are a few words about the holiday cottages and rural hotels of Sant Antoni.
At km. 2 of the road from Sant Rafel to Santa Agnès de Corona, there is a side road leading to Can Lluc, which defines itself as a Boutique Country Hotel & Villas. Can Lluc has been awarded by Rusticae as the best international product in 2019 and has accumulated reviews and recommendations from prestigious publications such as Condé Nast Traveler. Hidden away in a beautiful valley, surrounded by lush pine forests, the centre of the complex is formed by the main farmhouse, which is more than 300 years old and has several rooms that preserve the architectural style of Ibiza: stone walls, wooden ceilings and original family furniture. The rest of the complex is made up of the villas, with open and modern spaces, their own terraces, high-tech equipment and views of the countryside. The restaurant, spa, swimming pool, gym and a fully equipped meeting room complete the options available to guests.
In Santa Agnès there is a charming inland hotel, Can Partit. A stone’s throw from the beautiful village church, Can Partit offers panoramic views of the sea of almond trees that characterise the valley called Pla de Corona. It has all you need to relax and take it easy. Its architecture houses all the charm of the Ibizan tradition, with its exposed stone walls and juniper beams, and it offers many spots for the visitor to enjoy the fresh air and peace of the countryside. The hotel has all the amenities in addition to a swimming pool, library, restaurant and a full range of relaxation and beauty treatments.
The Es Cucons rural hotel is located in the heart of the Corona Valley, on the edge of vast expanses of farmland covered with almond trees. The original farm dates back to 1652 and has been offering excellent accommodation with a wealth of amenities for the last 20 years. Its 15 rooms and suites are decorated with unique and personal touches and each one is different, although they all share a fresh and relaxing air that immediately connects you with the surroundings. The spa, with its extensive range of massages and wellness rituals, and the restaurant, with its creative cuisine based on top-quality local products, make your stay even more relaxing, with an atmosphere that encourages rest and contemplation.
On the picturesque road between the village of Santa Agnès and Sant Mateu you will find the track that leads to Can Pujolet. In the wildest area of the coast, near spectacular cliffs and attractive trails, stands a charming little house that began operating as a holiday cottage more than 30 years ago. Can Pujolet is a true haven of peace, a perfect refuge away from the hustle and bustle and the gateway to one of the wildest and most beautiful natural areas of the island, the Es Amunts Protected Reserve. Dry stone walls surround the orchard of fruit trees that dot the entire property and are fed by the water from the house’s own well. The 10 rooms have all the amenities and a unique personality, like the whole property that houses them.
In the area of Sant Mateu we find Can Sastre, an establishment that was founded with the spirit of a boutique hotel but preserving the typical features of Ibiza’s architectural personality. Surrounded by aromatic orange trees, centuries-old olive trees, colourful bougainvilleas, palm trees and farmland, Can Sastre offers a dreamlike atmosphere. Its chic style combines perfectly with the countless cosy corners of a complex that offers three elegant houses and two spacious suites, all decorated with afresh, rustic and casual touch. Its restaurant offers a fusion cuisine with local, top-quality products and its surroundings, with terraces and a swimming pool, are available for all kinds of events and retreats.
On the outskirts of Sant Antoni, with easy access, you will find the Sa Talaia rural hotel. With 12 rooms, the complex consists of a large multi-volume house around which there are gardens, a swimming pool, jacuzzis, chillout areas and a restaurant. The decoration is elegant, with eclectic touches in an avant-garde and sophisticated style. Sa Talaia belongs to the Palladium group and provides a wide range of options that take advantage of the group’s platform to offer attractive packages. Its facilities are ideal for holding banquets and events of all kinds, both private and corporate.
Can Sa Roca is a stately holiday complex located in an 18th century house on the road to Sa Vorera, the little road that leads from Sant Antoni to the interior of Forada. The elegant construction, with its striking arches and stylish interior spaces, offers panoramic views over the countryside that will transport you to a world of sensations of relaxation, well-being and comfort. Can Sa Roca allows you to share unique experiences linked to mindfulness, meditation and the practice of retreats which, whether at an individual or group level, aim to improve physical and mental well-being. Acupuncture, yoga, qigong, massage and Reiki are some of the recommended activities.
On the outskirts of Sant Antoni we can also find unique hotels that are well worth visiting. The Hostal La Torre, for example, located in Cap Negret is well-known for the sensational sunsets to be admired from its terraces. It has a spacious bar-restaurant and a wide range of rooms, from simple doubles to junior suites with balconies. The casual and cool atmosphere combines perfectly with the pure Mediterranean ambience of its surroundings.
Pikes Ibiza is quite an institution on the island because of the charisma of its founder, Tony Pikes. Today, the hotel is still a paradise, with 25 rooms that look out over the surrounding farmland, next to the Sa Vorera trail. The personality of the hotel is inexorably linked to the music and fame of artists such as Grace Jones, Tony Curtis, Spandau Ballet, Bon Jovi, George Michael and Freddy Mercury. Restored in 2011, it offers an authentic and cosmopolitan atmosphere with a unique personality.
Can Vistabella is a set of rooms, suites and bungalows that make up a complex full of charm and style located on the road to Benimussa, surrounded by lush woodland. The restaurant and spa, with their respective menus and treatments (yoga, Pilates, massage) offer a quality service, enhanced by a cool atmosphere, where events such as weddings can also be held.
