Agroturismo Can Sastre is Ibiza’s best kept secret, a stylish home away from home on the outskirts of Santa Gertrdis, in the heart of the island. Nestled in 10 acres of stunning countryside, this boutique hotel captures the essence of Ibiza, offering a luxurious but authentic villa-with-service experience for those that are looking for something special during their Ibiza adventure. The lovingly restored white finca is surrounded by citrus groves, palm trees and cobbled pathways, creating the perfect, intimate environment in which to relax and unwind.

Ibiza is a famous destination for the world’s party goers, but the island offers so much more than its famous four-four beats. The island boasts a magical spirit that is almost impossible to define exactly, it’s just a feeling you have whenever you visit and Can Sastre has managed to capture that essence, resulting in an experience you will never forget. From the warm, genuine welcome on arrival to being made to feel part of its extended family during your stay, it delivers a rural tranquillity that demands you forget the rest of the world and relax. Opened in 2018 by Dutch couple Raymond and Bibi Van Der Hout – former restaurateurs, design aficionados and travel enthusiasts – Can Sastre remains a hidden gem for now.

The stunning boutique hotel is made up of five beautiful suites, compromising of three luxurious casitas and two spacious villa suites. Each suite enjoys its own unique character but all are decorated to a high standard and embody similar elements – romance, freedom, privacy and luxury. Whitewashed walls, exposed woodwork and the inclusion of natural elements throughout gives the hotel that famous Ibizan boho-chic vibe and while it has a meticulous eye for detail, it still delivers an inviting and welcoming feel, making it easy to feel at home. All of the suites are equipped with air conditioner, WIFI, Nespresso coffee machines and private terraces for those late night drinks under the stars.

Can Sastre offers the comfort and privacy of your own private space with the service you might expect from a larger five star resort, something that was very important to owners Raymond and Bibi. “At the forefront of our vision, when designing Can Sastre, was that we wanted to be able to offer guests everything a 5-star hotel does and more,” says Bibi. “Our villa with service concept allows us to offer a unique experience – guests can make use of bespoke services and amenities, but they also enjoy the comforts of a private paradise that is steeped in authentic charm. The décor is simple but luxurious, our main goal was to create a feeling of freedom and indulgence in a laidback environment, something that had a sense of a ‘home away from home’. Can Sastre is simple and instantly relaxing.”
