Over the centuries, many civilizations have passed through Ibiza and left their mark on the island. This succession of cultural footprints has created a unique essence – one which Santa Eulària des Riu has distilled to perfection.
Among the valued intangibles inherited from our past, traditional Ibicenco architecture holds pride of place. Through the years it has inspired numerous prestigious architects and drawn praise from international quarters.
The width and breadth of our geography encompasses a diverse range of traditional homes built from noble materials native to the island, notably olive and Phoenician juniper as well as stone and lime. The result is an architecture that is pure, simple and functional, a response to the existential needs of a bygone rural community.
Yet, these age-old techniques have come down to the present day and continue to be a source of inspiration in both the design of new dwellings and accommodations as well as the renovation of pre-existing farmhouses. Whether these structures lie in the wooded heartland of some hidden landscape, or overlook the sea, or perhaps stand near a remarkable heritage site, the result is the same: a collection of boutique hotels and guesthouses that are exclusive, intimate and unique, respectful of their surroundings and environmentally sustainable.
