This beautiful home on the island of Ibiza, Spain, is about 400 years old. The estate, which is surrounded by almond trees, cactus and olive trees, is owned by a couple from New York who fell in love with the place the first time they saw it. They updated the home with a new kitchen and did some repairing but kept the rustic and simplistic nature of the architecture. The decor is a mix of urban sophistication and ethnic elements. For the owners experiencing the silence and the various seasons is the greatest luxury.
