Can Marti: funky apartments on an eco farm in Ibiza

Agriturismo Can Marti Ibiza

Ibiza has a reputation for being a rowdy, party locale but most of that activity takes place in a corner of the island. Much of Ibiza is very quiet and rustic. If you prefer to get away from the crowds while you are on the island, I recommend staying at Can Marti, an agriturismo (tourist accommodations on a farm) in Sant Joan de Labritja on the northeastern side. Can Marti was built in the 1770s and purchased in 1994 by Peter and Isabelle Brantschen who are originally from Switzerland.

The Brantschens’ 17-hectare farm is a wonderful example of sustainable agricultural practices: they use solar energy; collect, treat and recycle water. They also have a small shop where they sell their farm produce (fruits and vegetables which they grow on their land). The farm is self-sustaining in terms of energy and water.

Can Marti has four apartments (each one is furnished in a different rustic style) with Wi-Fi access. There are semi-private outdoor decks and lounging areas. Guests can walk around the farm and enjoy the hammam, which is opening this year. Prices range from 910 EUR to 1740 EUR per week (low to high season). The little village of Sant Joan is quirky, with a lot of former hippies living in the area and shops that seem straight out of the late 60s.
