THE TRAVEL FILES: A SUMMER HOME FOR RENT ON IBIZA

8672462034_b65c059c27_o

Situated in the green north-west of Ibiza, between San Mateo and San Miguel and hidden in a forest of pine trees, holiday homes Can Sol and Casita Luna offer you a lovely and peaceful environment for a happy and relaxed holiday on the white isle. Can Sol is a unique, authentic house built of only natural materials. It is not an impersonal, cold design-villa, but a warm and cosy “home” where you will get to know and feel the real Ibiza. In the middle of nature, from the early sunbeams in the morning during breakfast until the magic sunset in the evening during dinner. Outside you will find besides a saltwater pool, plenty of space to chill on one of the sun beds, enjoy a good meal at the dinner table or admire the beautiful view. The house is child-friendly as there are chicken, a trampoline, a tipi to play in and lots of space to run around.
