Can Colmena is located in the outskirts of the municipality of Sant Josep de Sa Talaia, on the beautiful island of Ibiza, Spain. This highly finished villa was designed by the famous architect Rolph Blakstad, and it was built under his supervision. It is close to the airport, shops, the centre of Sant Josep, several beaches, coves and restaurants. Nevertheless this 1,5 Ha property offers absolute privacy and has free views all around.
At night you can enjoy the clearest starry sky imaginable, without any light pollution.
The main house has 4 bedrooms all with private bathrooms. All rooms have built in wardrobes with nice pine-tree doors. There is a separate guest house with living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.
The thick walls provide a comfortable climate all year round. Cool in the summer, warm in the winter. On the outside, the walls are all natural stone, and on the inside they are plastered and painted white. The entire house is warmed with central heating. All ceilings are made of wood and made in a traditional Ibiza manner “ so called Sabina ceilings”. All wood is coated against vermin.
There is a closed court-yard with a centuries old olive tree. The covered terrace is a perfect place to sit and relax in the shade when the sun reaches the highest point in the sky. The heated heart shaped pool has a cosy lounge area also.

Located on the South, Sant Josep is the largest municipality in the island. On the East, it shares Platja d’en Bossa (beach) with the municipality of Eivissa, and Sant Antoni’s Bay on the West. Apart from Sant Josep’s town, the municipality includes the parishes of Sant Jordi, Sant Agustí and es Cubells, all of them quiet picturesque villages with beautiful churches.
The municipality’s coastline, which is 80 Km long, offers important tourist resorts, as well as some of the most beautiful coves in the Pitiusas, such as Cavallet, Ses Salines, Cala Jondal, Cala d’Hort, Cala Carbó, Cala Vedella, Cala Tarida, and Platges de Comte, or remote fishermen coves, such as Porroig, es Xarco, sa Caleta, Cala Llentrisca, and Cala Corral, all of them keeping their traditional atmosphere.
The coastline is abundant with cliffs and islets, such as Vedrà, es Vedranell, sa Conillera, s’Espartà, s’Illa des Bosc, and ses Bledes, which dominate the view when comtemplated from the land. It is a magnificent landscape, especially the two protected areas, Ses Salines Natural Park and the nature reserve of d’es Vedrà, es Vedranell and Islotes de Poniente (islets), where nature can be found at its finest.
The municipality provides the visitor with very interesting routes going through areas of unspoilt nature, where you can also see defensive towers in magic enclosures, such as the Pirate Tower in Cala d’Hort, the tower of d’en Rovira, located in Platges de Comte, or the Carregador tower, near Ses Salines.
Sa Talaia, the highest woodland in the island, 475 m high, is located in the centre of the municipality. It offers one of the best views in the island. You can visit important archaeological sites in Sant Josep, such as Sa Caleta’s Phoenician village (VII B.C.), founded by the first settlers in the island and declared World Heritage, or Ses Païses de Cala d’Hort, a Punic-Roman settlement.
