Are you looking to sense the real Ibicencan life style in Ibiza?
Leif Borthen (from 1911 to 1979) was a Norwegian journalist & author and student of art history at the Royal Frederick University. In 1932 he gave up these studies and head for Spain where he lived in a colony of artists which included Jacob Brinchmann and René Paul Gauguin. In 1933 he moved to Ibiza and settled in the remote village of Sant Vicent de sa Cala in the north east of Ibiza in a finca owned by the father of the owner of this villa.
At the outbreak of the Second World War, Borthen went to London, later to Argentina.
And as all do! Borthen returned to Sant Vicente, purchased a house and continued to write from there. In 1967 he published “The Road to San Vicente'. Borthen continued to write and live on the Cala until his death in 1979.
“A way of live you need to sense before you die!”

• Cala de Sant Vicent, a wide sandy beach, only 7 min by car away. There's always room for your kids to play or just to lay down and enjoy the sun.
• Ses Caletes, one of those beaches hidden from mass tourism to enjoy sunbathing in full privacy. Only 1.4km away (as the crow flies) less than 5 min by car of your precious holiday time to find that peace and tranquillity you are looking for.
Even for die-hard swimmers and sunbathers, sometimes a day at the beach is anything but. You know the drill: too many people, too much noise, not nearly enough serenity to enjoy the majesty of blue skies and white-crested waves.
The good news is that there are still undiscovered beaches out there, blissful hideaways where tourism hasn’t yet eclipsed the local culture. Ses Caletes is one of them.
“Total physical and mental inertia are highly agreeable...a beach not only permits such inertia, but enforces it, thus neatly eliminating all problems of guilt. It is now the only place in our overly active world that does.”
This Ibicencan villa let you feel again:
- Space to breath,
- rediscover your privacy you’ve lost in big brother world
- real Ibicencan life around a hidden place so strong that a second book was written about the location by Alexis Brown “ a valley wide”
Rustic retreats: Rural retreats.
Time to mellow out? Take a step back from the noise and bustle of town life and choose the rustic charms of the countryside. We've got rural idylls aplenty.
