Picture yourself winding up a hillside, the scent of foliage wafting through the open window and views of the glistening Mediterranean stretching all the way to Formentera. The car slows as you approach Villa Orchid's crucifix-topped gateway. At first glance, it has all the charm of a traditional Spanish finca, but brace yourself for what treasures you're about to experience within.
A couple of seconds spent looking around the courtyard, and you're already enamored with Villa Orchid. Tropical palm trees, faded wooden slates, archways and terracotta tiled roofs ooze old town charm. But you realise this is no shy and retiring type as you step inside to a beautifully restored, stylishly modern interior. Contemporary, metallic-hued artwork and a stainless steel kitchen bring it up to date and the open-plan living area provides plenty of space for the group to lounge about.
There is a special sense of calm here, perhaps due to the neutral tones of gold, silver and cream throughout. Or maybe thanks to the tall, arched windows which allow sufficient amounts of natural light and the outdoor scenery in. Whatever it is, it already has you feeling right at home.
Bedrooms are picked at random, with all pairs choosing a number between 1 and 6, making it all the more satisfying when everyone steps into a luxury den. It's hard to be disappointed when double beds, ensuites and unrivalled views are a given, but you feel like you've been particularly fortunate with yours, having landed the master bedroom with a king-sized bed plus views out to the salt pits and Formentera from your own private terrace.
Once you're all unpacked, it's time to explore the outdoors. A couple of the group make a quick visit to the gym, but you make a beeline straight for the in-pool sunlounger. The water has already hit warm temperatures thanks to the intense Ibizan heat and a friend brings you a glass of Dom Perignon to make the experience all the sweeter.
Soon, the barbeque is fired up for your first alfresco lunch beneath the pergola, featuring the freshest grilled fish and bubbly on tap. You're heading to the Cala Jondal stretch for a luxury beach club dining experience this evening to kick off the week in the most stylish fashion, so maybe you should check out that gym later on after all. Then again, you're on the holiday of a lifetime and, if these first few hours at Villa Orchid are anything to go by, you can already see yourself never wanting to leave.

There is something wonderfully comforting and indulgent about having somebody else take control of the kitchen. When that person is a talented chef with hands-on experience in high-end restaurants, you know you’re in for a mouth-watering treat. We handpick our villa partners for their beautiful properties, stand out service and their dedication to gastronomy. Here’s a taste of what you can expect when staying in one of our catered villas:
When you awake from your dreamy sleep you can rest assured that breakfast has been taken care of and awaits you. Freshly squeezed oranges and healthy fruit juices along with a selection of delicious teas and coffee are just the start. Yoghurts, crispy cereals, fresh fruits and a tempting display of fresh breads & delicate pastries complete the table. Your chef will also prepare a daily cooked hot option for you - how do you like your eggs? If creamy porridge with honey or simply toast hits the spot, just ask, it’s on the menu. With breakfast taken care of all you have to do is decide how to spend the day. A trip to a stunning beach or perhaps time relaxing by your own private pool – decisions, decisions! Life can be tough …….
Whether you’d prefer to have your chef prepare a wonderful spread at lunchtime or alternatively you’d like to dine al-fresco under the stars, the choice is yours. With an emphasis on using specially selected fresh local and seasonal ingredients you will be served a melt-in-the-mouth meal befitting of a Michelin starred restaurant. From sun soaked BBQ’s on the terrace to delicious locally inspired menus, your chef will be in touch with you personally before your arrival to discuss your preferences.
The villa provides house wines, beers, a drinks tray of two bottles of house spirits and mixers. Champagne is served with canapés on 6 nights of your stay.
The chef is happy to cater to specific dietary requirements. Just let us know about any special requests regarding dietary requirements such as gluten free options. Maybe you’re celebrating a birthday? A cake bedecked with candles can be arranged or maybe just favourite dishes, nothing is too much trouble, just ask. Maybe you’d like an earlier high tea for the youngest children? We will do our very best to ensure that your wishes are granted.
