view gallery VIEW GALLERY

From a luxury villa that offers a decked terracs overlooking the sea to a whitewashed townhouse on a quiet corner of a quiet cobbled street inside Dalt Vila...

Casa Lagartija, Sant Carles

This luxury villa on the east coast sleeps 10 people in five airy bedrooms. There is masses of living space, both indoors and out, centred around a wonderful open-plan kitchen and living room with a long, retro breakfast bar and plenty of deep, inviting sofas.

Huge glass doors lead out into the big garden where there's a covered dining area, ping-pong table and swimming pool. The jewel in the crown is the decked terrace with double daybeds overlooking the sea and the steps leading down to two sandy beaches below.

Casa Lagartija, San Carles (0845 618 2205; akvillas.com). Weekly rental from €5,000. Sleeps 10.

April House, San José

The pine-covered foothills of Sa Talaia mountain provide a dramatic backdrop to this charming country casita for two. The large bedroom has a four-poster bed and French windows leading out to a private pool surrounded by tubs of lavender and wild flowers. The views extend past olive and almond groves to the sparkling sea beyond. Nearby, San Jose is home to two excellent tapas restaurants and two of the best beaches on the island, Cala d'Hort and Cala Moli, both 10 minutes away by car.

April House, San José (020-3514 0104; holiday-rentals.co.uk; Ref 6510). Weekly rental from £725. Sleeps two.

Finca 15, Sant Joan

This remote finca, situated in a wooded valley, feels a world away from the bright lights and bling of the south. Without compromising on comfort, the British owners have retained the building's original features – sunken stone baths, an outdoor shower – and filled it with exquisite furniture and quirky finds from across the globe. There's also a tipi in the garden with working electricity and a double bed; a trampoline for children and a beautiful infinity pool with views of the pine-covered valley below.

Finca 15, Sant Joan (01963 33046; scottwilliams.co.uk). Weekly rental from £1,500. Sleeps five, plus two in the tipi.

Casa Cristina, Es Cubells

Sleeping six in three en-suite bedrooms, this contemporary hillside villa above the village of Es Cubells has both style and comfort in spades. Giant canvases of colourful artwork are offset by white walls, muted marble floors and open brickwork. Sliding glass doors and panoramic windows flood the spacious open-plan living space with light. Outside, there's a sleek salt-water pool in the immaculate garden, a barbecue area and multiple sun terraces for eating al fresco.

Casa Cristina, Es Cubells (00 34 971 197 867; deliciouslysortedibiza.com). Weekly rental from €6,400. Sleeps six.

Villa Cybaura, Sant Vicent

Villa Cybaura is colourful inside and out. Playful interiors combining neon shades with fittings by Alessi and Philippe Starck, give way to a garden and pool illuminated by ever-changing lights. With five double rooms and a bunkroom sleeping six, this is an ideal choice for families. Adults can relax in the cliff-top Jacuzzi or at the poolside bar knowing their children are happy in the games room or outdoor play area. A two-minute walk leads to the clear water of the cove below.

Villa Cybaura, Sant Vicent (020-7474 3737; villacybaura.com). Weekly rental from €3,750. Sleeps 16.

Calle Conquista, Ibiza Town

This whitewashed townhouse sits on the corner of a quiet cobbled street inside Dalt Vila, the Unesco-protected old walled city perched atop Ibiza Town. Here, maze-like streets stuffed with tiny restaurants and galleries lead up to the cathedral. The two bedrooms and shared bathroom are Ibicencan in style, with white stone walls, beamed ceilings and terracotta-tiled floors, while a roof terrace offers space for drinks on warm summer evenings.

Calle Conquista, Ibiza Town (00 34 616 475 929; ownersdirect.co.uk; Ref B6808). Nightly rental from €140. Sleeps four.
