Les Terrasses: chic artistic retreat in Ibiza

les terrasses ibiza

Ibiza is one of my favorite holiday destinations because it has beautiful beaches, excellent restaurants and a vibrant night life. But if you prefer to hide away in your private space and spend your days reading books, I suggest Les Terrasses, a restored finca (farm house) only 8 kilometers outside Ibiza town, on a hill. Les Terrasses is a bit difficult to find, but once you get there you’ll feel a million miles away from the beach crowds. With only ten rooms, it does not feel like a hotel. The rooms are airy, spacious, and individually decorated in a chic Mediterranean style. There are two swimming pools and a tennis court.

The owner of Les Terrasses, Françoise Pialoux, has poured her heart and soul into the place. Her restaurant, which is open every night, is much better than most restaurants on the island. Do not miss the Tuesday night dinner: that’s when she serves couscous. Most of the guests at the hotel and restaurant are French. Les Terrasses has received more press in France than in the UK or other countries.
