Luxury villa Can Velasco brings a taste of the souk to Ibiza's south coast – the living room is a Berber-style, cushion-strewn tented area on the first floor. Cacti-dotted terraces and alfresco dining areas overlook hilly vistas out to the sea, with shaded sitting areas to escape the midday heat in, and there are double day-beds and hammocks by the pool. Can Velasco is located close to the villlage of Es Cubells and its beautiful beach.
