Can Mayans – elegantly Bohemian Design Blakstad villa near Santa Gertrudis
Set in the heart of the island, overlooking the rolling green hills and farmland of Santa Gertrudis, Can Mayans is a contemporary six-bedroom finca, renovated to the highest standards by respected architecture firm Blakstad Design Consultants.
The signature Ibicenco style shines through whitewashed walls, Sabina wood beam ceilings and terracotta tiles, plus elegant yet rustic interiors, while a large swimming pool sets the scene for sun-drenched holiday experiences. Just minutes from the village, peace and serenity flow throughout the spacious south-facing villa, creating the perfect relaxing haven for an island escape.
There are six impressive bedrooms at Can Mayans, including two master suites with en suite bathrooms, plus four additional bedrooms that can be accessed independently. All rooms feature air conditioning and underfloor heating. Pristine white luxury bedding, earthy tones and wooden accents create the feeling of home, while bathrooms with walk-in rain showers or deep freestanding tubs create a boutique hotel feeling.
The living area at Can Mayans is what cozy nights in are all about. An snug chill-out area with twin built-in concrete sofas around an exposed brick fireplace evoke the feeling of old school Ibiza, while an adjacent open-plan living area offers even more space to stretch out, unwind and relax. The interior decoration also pays homage to the Ibiza of days gone by, in terms of color palette, artwork, rustic wooden furnishings and architectural details such as Sabina wood beam ceilings and huge wooden doors. A grand dining table with plush high-back seats hosts up to 10, and the country-style kitchen has been kitted out with every mod con needed for cooking and entertaining. Contemporary lighting and statement mirrors add a modern Bohemian touch to the otherwise traditional spaces –a tasteful fusion of old and new.
The laid-back country life is yours for the taking at Can Mayans. Step through a set of large glass doors to enjoy the long, free-flowing terraces that surround much of the house. Communal dining spaces, elegant daybeds, outdoor sofas, rooftop vignettes, stylish wooden sunbeds lining the pool area; with so much space to make the most of, it’s easy to find alone time when you need it, or gather for meals and fun poolside adventures. A shaded outdoor kitchen complete with barbecue and coffee machine gives you all the more reason to dine alfresco, while the countryside views, ancient olive trees, lush lawn, tropical palms and meticulously maintained herb garden gives kids plenty of places to safely play and explore, while still considering parents. A chicken coop provides hours of entertainment too, not to mention fresh eggs daily. The salt-filtered swimming pool is the icing on the cake, with a shallow end for kids, and views stretching all the way to Formentera.
The villa has a total of six bedrooms with six en suite bathrooms. For legal reasons, the villa is only offered for 10 people with 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. Can Mayans has a main house and another building. Five bedrooms and one staff bedroom sleep a total of ten guests, plus two housekeeping staff.
