Barefoot authentic luxury taking Ibiza villa stays to the next level
The Fincadelica Collection is group of Ibiza’s most extraordinary homes. Fincadelica Xarraca (new for 2024) and Fincadelica San Lorenzo are a pair of landmark exclusive-hire properties whose singular design aesthetic, intuitive service, and laidback effortless grace have redefined northern Ibiza as the home of authentic bohemian luxury. Both properties represent authentic Balearic luxury at its finest.
A new villa launches for 2024
New for 2024 is Fincadelica Xarraca, a magnificent eight-bedroom 3000 square metre coastal estate overlooking the shores of Cala Xarraca Bay, a hidden gem of a beach on the northwest side of the island.
Surrounded by fragrant pines and crystal-clear waters, the property is one of the largest beach-side properties on the island and with every window looking out over the sea, you could almost believe you were on a beautiful yacht. Fincadelica Xarraca is also very special as it has direct access to the beach via a private gate which leads to a coastal path, a secret cove with fisherman’s huts and a local restaurant.
With arguably the most privileged waterfront location on the island, Fincadelica Xarraca defines authentic Ibiza barefoot luxury. With fluid indoor-outdoor living, light flooded all-season salons, its own soundproofed club room, and far-reaching ocean views from every angle, the house exudes the very essence of authentic Mediterranean luxury.
The Ethos behind the Collection
The Fincadelica Collection has been designed for – and by – the world’s most visionary creatives, fusing lavish and sumptuous interiors with vast, versatile grounds, limitless entertaining spaces and a level of attentive service found nowhere else in the Balearics. The team behind The Fincadelica Collection are Mati Rachminov, business owner of one of the most prestigious diamond suppliers in the world, and Serena Cook, founder and owner of Deliciously Sorted, Ibiza’s legendary concierge company for the luxury market. Their mission is to reinterpret high end hospitality.
Serena explains “ For us exclusivity, soul and seamlessness are the new luxury for the world´s most discerning travellers. We have taken iconic heritage properties and created discreet and decadent worlds within worlds, using sumptuous, unique furniture and design. Yet from a service point of view we have created a villa where our guests will have a hassle free experience similar to a 5 star hotel. The extraordinary scope, privacy, and attentive service that our two properties provide will ensure a stress free villa holiday. The ultimate summer party place, where you can dance til dawn, an immersive well being or work away retreat, or simply the opportunity to surrender to glorious solitude. And crucially to our location and the spirit of bohemian Ibiza, both of our properties offer an authentic standard of soulful hospitality.”
The properties have been designed with the concept that Ibiza, like Mallorca, is becoming a year long destination. October through to March is an alluring season in Ibiza, with bright sunshine, long days and daily highs of around 24°C. From early autumn the island settles into a gentler rhythm, with nature at its most abundant and the sea still warm enough to swim in. This is a season of early morning hikes, sun-soaked lunches and cosy fireside evenings. With its all-weather indoor-outdoor living and comforting, tactile luxury, both Fincadelica Xarraca and Fincadelica San Lorenzo are the ultimate low season destinations for intimate gatherings, work aways, wellness retreats with globally renowned practitioners or Fincadelica’s very own retreat format.
About Fincadelica Xarraca
The owners re-enlisted Carmen Straatsma, also responsible for for the upscale luxe yet eclectic interiors at Fincadelica San Lorenzo. Using a mix of one-off vintage pieces, and design icons and an unpretentious yet super stylish level of comfort and sophistication, she has created houses with tons of personality yet which also feel like home from home. Carmen describes Cala Xarracca as “Slim Aarons vibes but here and now, with some extra Ibiza spice!”
Fincadelica Xarraca offers nine elegant and airy suites all with beautiful sea views and terraces. Each is completely unique. All rooms have fireplaces for cozy winter stays with huge bathrooms, and are completely light filled.
Showstopper bedroom suites include an enormous 110 square meter penthouse with wrap around sea views from its terraces, with bath tub and sinks in black clay by Studio Loho, featuring a freestanding custom bed and two Valentine Schlegel inspired fireplaces.
Two more bedrooms are housed in a magical ancient two-bedroom fairytale flower strewn tower, with winding stairs up to a large terrace. Both bedrooms in the tower are half-moon shaped, with arched windows facing the sea with fireplaces and Juliet balconies, separate living rooms and huge bathrooms with Calacatta Marble sinks. Deluxe beds are made with 1000 thread count bedlinen and soft lighting is by Milanese designer Mirei Monticelli. The downstairs tower has an extra living room with kitchenette and ensuite bathroom – the perfect family room.
The hub of Fincadelica Xarraca is a spacious open plan living and dining room. Ancient terracotta amphorae flank a serene arched doorway. Rustic wooden doors open onto a soaring living space with double-height ceilings, metre-thick stone walls and traditional sabina beams, whose evocative pine fragrance permeates the house. Floor-to-ceiling windows flood the space with light, highlighting a cluster of rust velvet Arflex Marenco sofas. Mid-century lounge chairs and primitive stools surround a polished stone coffee table.
Living areas are lavish. For party nights guests can enjoy a soundproofed cosy club room with parquet wood flooring perfect for late night parties, lit by soft vintage Murano lighting. An enormous croissant sofa by Hans Hopfer for Wiener Werkstatte, upholstered in green chenille, echoes the sea-green marble counter tops. A chill-out salon (perfect for the morning after) contains a sumptuous round sofa bed.
The dining area houses a custom made table by Can Castello and chairs by Casa Miday with vintage burned Murano glass pendants providing atmospheric lighting above the table. The kitchen is decorated with pink checkered tiles and a red La Canche stove with a guest friendly pantry full of snacks and refreshments and of course a fabulously stocked wine cellar.
Fincadelica Xaracca also has a library with an Angela Damman limited edition KAU chair (an edition of 10)) as well as a beautiful round vintage Swedish rug and GUBI croissant chairs to curl up and read a book in.
Outside Fincadelica Xarraca there are sundrenched terraces with wraparound views of the ocean, carefully considered planting schemes of succulents and cacti, dotted with huge terracotta pots. A delicious saltwater pool is fringed by tall palms where guests can lounge in shaded cabanas under Tuuci striped parasols that provide a super-stylish retro vibe. Copious terraced gardens and meandering walkways covered with purple bougainvillea abound and ancient olive trees dot the property. There is an outdoor terrace with a bar, overlooking the pool, ideal for al fresco dinner and drinks, and an additional pool bar. A beautiful stone feature by artist Maria Llorente frames the large olive tree at the entrance.
