An introduction to Villa Sant Francesc

How would you describe Villa Sant Francesc in a nutshell?

The villa is a haven to which I escape in Formentera, Spain, to find peace and tranquility: a very harmonious place where you can relax and be in contact with nature in the middle of a Mediterranean paradise.

What was your inspiration to build a luxury holiday home in Formentera?

When I first visited the plot I fell immediately in love with it. It had everything: amazing views over the countryside and the sea, beautiful Mediterranean vegetation and a very convenient location close to San Francesc and the harbour. It was a sunny August morning and when I arrived at the plot it started raining and a rainbow appeared! I considered it a sign...

Please tell us a bit about the holiday villa’s architecture and design.

The villa is made of very generous cubic volumes, creating a sense of space and light with a contemporary feeling. Concrete flooring, wood, white walls and the use of linen in the fabrics contribute to an aura of coolness and calm.

All the rooms are large with big windows, so even when you’re inside during the winter, you still feel you’re in contact with the outside.

The furniture is a mix of unpretentious items coming from all over the world and designer pieces.

What has been most rewarding to you renting out the villa to holiday guests?

Every time I arrive at my house, no matter the season, I feel really happy. This same feeling is shared by all my friends and guests who stay here, it’s like a magic that captures everybody... This house makes you feel well.

The greatest reward for me is having been able to build the house exactly the way I wanted and having been able to create the atmosphere I was dreaming of. Construction on the island can be a nightmare, but it was really worth it.

What makes this holiday villa so special?

The incredible nature surrounding the villa rental makes it very special. We have a 16.000 sq metre plot and everything looks like it has always been that way. The sunsets and sunrises are incredible, and the sky at night is amazing. Guests and friends end up spending most of their days relaxing at the house with no need to go out.

Villa Sant Francesc rooms & rates

Being on top of a small hill, the villa benefits from uninterrupted views all around. No matter which way you turn, you get spectacular views of unspoilt Formentera countryside with the Mediterranean sea at the end.

The villa offers plenty of living spaces, both indoor and outdoor, with large sofas, daybeds, hammocks and armchairs. We also have a very nice 18 x 6 metre swimming pool, and 3 external showers. On the roof, there is a large terrace with a solarium, a Jacuzzi, and a lounge area — perfect to watch the stars at night.

There are six en-suite bedrooms for up to 12 holiday guests, each with its own terrace, five in the main building and one in the annex.

An additional room is devoted to my housekeeper. She takes care of the guests while they stay at the house.

The villa has many lounge areas scattered around the gardens that are surrounded by plants and flowers. Everything conveys the feelings of relaxation and well-being while you are in contact with the sky and the earth. It’s very quiet and tranquil, the only sounds being the birds.

The live-in housekeeper has worked with me for several years. She takes care of the house, the terraces, and the cleaning of the rooms. On request, she can also do laundry and cook delicious Mediterranean, Italian, and Asian meals.

We also have a couple living in the basement who take care of the gardens, the swimming pool and the Jacuzzi. All the staff is very discrete and trustworthy.

You can also book yoga treatments, Pilates lessons, beauty treatments, or massages to make your stay even more enjoyable.

Formentera has a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere and incredible beaches: long and wide, with powdery white sand and crystal-clear water. You can walk for seven kilometers one way along the beach. I am very fond of the Maldives, and Formentera is the place that most resembles them in Europe.

The island has two souls: unspoiled, very well preserved countryside, and incredibly beautiful sea and sandy beaches. It’s a rare combination.

You have to see all of the beaches: Mitjiorn, Illetas, Llevant, and the small island in front of Formentera called Espalmador. The more remote area of La Mola and its lighthouse, at the opposite end of the island, is very fascinating and so are the lighthouse and the cliffs of Cap de Barbaria from which you can enjoy incredible views.

The location of Villa Sant Francesc

It’s a great location because it’s peaceful and at the same time very close to Sant Francesc, the main village of Formentera. It combines an isolated feel with the convenience of what you need nearby. You can drive to the center of the village in only two mins. We’re just five mins away from the harbour and 10 mins from any of the beaches. There’s a small supermarket about 3 mins from the house.

The beaches are on different sides of Formentera, so you can always find a place with wind or no wind, depending on what you’re looking for. There’s always a place to be comfortable.

When is the best time to visit Formentera?

I’m so in love with the island that I will tell you every month has its own charm. Temperatures are nice year round and you can still swim in December, for example.

In February, all the almond trees are in blossom, covered with white flowers. Starting in April, the weather is very nice and the days are long. In June the sun sets at 10 pm in the evening, and sunsets are stunning. Summer gets very hot, but it’s pleasant to be in the water. Things dry out then, but starting in September, the island becomes green again like in spring.
