Finca Olivera in Ibiza is a beautifully renovated 18th-century farmhouse that’s perfectly set up for family holidays. The sprawling grounds are filled with lavender bushes, olive trees and towering pines; there’s a glittering rectangular pool flanked by sunloungers and a dedicated play area for little Smiths in the back garden with a swing set, slide and sandpit. This five-bedroom villa is split across two buildings: the main house – home to two bedrooms, the modern farmhouse-style kitchen, dining and lounge spaces – and a casita with three bedrooms. The two are connected by a sun-dappled courtyard and there are two alfresco dining tables – one in the back garden and a second that’s perfectly positioned for sipping sundowners while the tykes scramble ‘round the playground.

First Glance
