Holiday in a completely unique property; where history meets style. Originally the village schoolhouse, before becoming the Mayor's residence, this tastefully restored villa has been enjoyed by 'A' list celebs, couples and discerning families for over 6yrs. Cas Vildu is the perfect blend of modern convenience and traditional charm; spacious bedrooms with large large en-suites, modern kitchen, large outdoor dining and BBQ area (perfect for summer nights) and a stylish lounge with room for relaxing. Here you get the best of both worlds; stunning surroundings yet only minutes from the pretty village of San Jose and all its amenities - so you don't have to be car reliant or struggle up a dirt track to find it! Just imagine yourself whiling away the hours by the pool, dozing on the Balinese bed whilst listening to your music or breathing in the aroma of lavender as you relax on the terrace! And should you want to leave this haven you're only 10 min drive from the most stunning beaches on the island.
Pool and Gardens: Cas Vildu is simply a stunning property; white-washed with trailing bougainvillea everywhere, you enter through a gate set within a traditional stone wall. Walk down the path lined with Agapanthas and you'll be met with a view of the stunning gardens filled with mature Date Palms, Lavender, Pomegranate, Fig and Apricot trees. Unusual for Ibiza there's also a large lawn which is ideal for garden games and it hosts the traditional Balinese bed; perfect for an afternoon siesta or sleeping under the stars as some guests like to do! The separate pool area (pool 10x4m) is on a lower level and has teak loungers and a shaded area with a fridge for those essential cooling drinks! Elsewhere a large terrace, protected by arches, has views to the valley, a seating area and a full size table tennis table. There's a large outdoor dining area which easily seats 10, it has a built in BBQ, a large table and is situated next to the kitchen for easy access.
History of the Villa: Cas Vildu is unique on the island of Ibiza. It has been central to village life for many years and is beloved by the local San Jose villagers. Originally the village school for many years, it then became the residence of the Mayor before finally being bought by a french architect who lovingly restored this traditional finca (farmhouse). Cas Vildu is a multi-level, stone built house with large rooms. It often amazes guests when they first arrive as it can take a day or two to get orientated! The walls are incredibly thick so the house stays cool in the summer and windows in some of the bedrooms are traditionally small to keep out the heat. Large glass doors now replace the old wooden doors to give the whole house a beautifully light feel and provide direct access to the garden. Outside the walled garden is unusually large for a village property and is something not found anywhere else on the island.
Your Holiday: FAMILIES: Cas Vildu has plenty of space for children to run around and because the garden is completely walled you don't have to worry about their safety. A full sized table tennis table is available (inc. bats and balls). The i Pod docking stations mean teenagers can play their music whilst the WiFi keeps them in touch with friends. A cot and highchair can usually be supplied along with bedding and details of a babysitting service can be provided (local contacts) - ask for details prior to your arrival. FRIENDS & COUPLES: All bedrooms have their own private bathroom - a necessary requirement for many when holidaying in a large group, and not always found even in 'luxury' villas. The bedrooms are on different levels and sides of the villa - so are very private. Secure parking is available. There's also WiFi, Sky TV and i Pod docking stations (which can be plugged in at the Balinese bed too!

The pretty white-washed village of San Jose is a couple of minutes stroll down a narrow lane. There you'll find a traditional village clustered around an ancient church. The amenities include a supermarket, patisseries (fab cakes and bread!), newsagents, shops , banks, fishmongers and a kiddies playground all a few minutes walk away from the villa. There's a good selection of bars and restaurants and the 'garden bar' of Raco Verd has live entertainment 3 nights a week in their beautiful courtyard. Close by are the trendy beaches of Cala Jondal, Cala Conta (a cool alternative to San Antonio for sunset), and of course Cala D'Hort with its fabulous views of Es Vedra. Cas Vildu is a great base for a holiday if you want easy access to restaurants, beaches and Ibiza Town but would prefer to be away from the tourist hustle and bustle.
A regular bus service runs through the village to Ibiza Town, San Antonio, the airport and 2 family beaches so you don't have to hire a car.
