"Return to the genuine and authentic Ibiza hippy chic style. A heaven of peace in a bustling island. Facing the islands of Conejera on the West coast of Ibiza, on top of a green forest of pine trees, this charming villa enjoys stunning uninterrupted sea views and sunset all year. Located in Cala Salada, walking distance to the charming beaches of Cala Salada, and to the flat stones of Punta Galera where you can enjoy the best sunset spot of the island. Enjoy the real Ibiza."

Private Chef: Christina Gdisis
At the heart of my cooking philosophy is kindness and compassion, which is why all of my food is made using only plant-based ingredients.
My menus are inspired by the traditional Greek recipes passed down through my family, which were originally developed in the mountainous farming land. I incorporate whole foods and seasonal plants to create dishes that are fresh, flavorful, and nourishing.
I believe that the meals I provide invite you to connect with Mama Earth and her abundance, helping you to achieve balance and alignment with the natural world. My cooking philosophy also incorporates influences from Ayurvedic philosophy, ensuring that our meals are not only delicious but also supportive of your overall health and well-being.
