Among the honey-hued fields and moody pine forests of Ibiza’s pastoral inlands sits La Granja, an enclave of pared-down relaxation and rural simplicity.
The Dutch owner of La Granja in Ibiza wanted to do something different with his farm, one of the oldest in the island. He called Claus Sendlinger, CEO of designhotels.com, to help him create a place where people can eat, drink, stay, listen to music, do yoga, see out-door film screenings and follow workshops.
They introduced La Granja as a membership-only retreat known as Friends of a Farmer. For 200 euro per season you can enjoy their facilities, have lunch and dinner and come to all the events they are hosting.
The interesting feature on La Granja is the huge farm belonging to the property. Chef José Catrimán takes care of the menu which consists mainly out of ingredients coming from the farm
The interior of La Granja is kept in style of the island, but with beautiful modern touches done by Armin Fisher of Dreimeta. An atmosphere that makes you start to whisper because it’s so serene and beautiful. There are only a few rooms and a guesthouse if you’re staying with a larger group. All the rooms have a dark color palette, some with a rooftop terrace, others with an authentic freestanding bath tub
TAINARON BLUE RETREAT
For thousands of years, Cape Tainaron (formerly known as Cape Matapan) has been a unique region full of mystery, myths and natural beauty.
Tainaron Blue is located just a few kilometers from Cape Tainaron. This is the southernmost geographical point of mainland Greece and also the southernmost point of mainland Europe. Tainaron Blue Retreat is housed in an early 19th-century stone tower that boasts stunning panoramic views of the southernmost slope of Taygetos mountain and the sea. Perfectly situated in an idyllic location, it is an ideal place to watch the magical sunset over the sea.
