About Ibiza

The Mediterranean island of Ibiza (Eivissa) is situated, just off coast of Valencia, Spain. The third largest island in the Balearic archipelago, and the largest of the Pitiuses, Ibiza has historical origins including Carthaginian, Roman, Byzantine, Arabic and Moorish, and dating as far back as the Phoenicians in 654BC.

Endless sunny days, a year-round mild climate and truly breathtaking and varied scenery make Ibiza a wonderful holiday destination for all ages. Over 210 kilometres of idyllic coastline, crystal clear waters, lush vegetation including vast pine forests, olive, fig, carob and almond trees, citrus orchards and more attract over 5 million people per year!

A haven for hippies on the bohemian travel trail in the ‘60s, Ibiza then became known for its hedonistic tourism trade, in particular the well-documented super clubs and the rise of electronic music from the late ‘80s onwards, a scene that continues to thrive today.

Despite its popularity with tourists, finding time and space for rest and relaxation in Ibiza is a breeze. Coastal and countryside walks, beautiful bike trails, yoga retreats, tranquil beaches, spectacular sunsets, yoga, meditation and detox retreats, rustic and fine dining restaurants and UNESCO World Heritage Listed Sites make for fascinating holidays.

Whether you choose to dip your toe into the party scene or not is simply a matter of personal taste!

Step back in time – Eivissa Medieval Festival

Travellers? We’ve got them. Sun worshippers? Flocking to our beaches. Yogis? Omming on the island. Fashionistas, celebrities and clubbers? They’re flocking to the island in droves. However one type of person you wouldn’t expect to come across on a trip to Ibiza is a medieval jester juggling leather balls in the cobbled streets of the old town – right?

Dalt Vila: Ibiza’s UNESCO World Heritage Listed Site

Ibiza’s famous fortified ‘old town’, Dalt Vila, was officially named a World Heritage Listed Site by UNESCO in 1999 – a stunning example of classic Renaissance military architecture, within which lies the historical remnants of the many cultures who have called Ibiza home over thousands of years.

Shopping hotspots

An essential part of every Ibiza holiday is exploring the local boutiques, shops and markets, indulging in a spot of retail therapy. Cas Gasi owner Margaret says many of her guests come back from the beach in summer with amazing purchases from the beautiful beach boutiques attached to many restaurants.


Cas Gasi owners Margaret von Korff and Luis Trigueros Juan pride themselves on using as many sustainable techniques and eco-friendly methods as possible in the day-to-day running of the hotel.

Exploring Ibiza by sea

As a long term sailing expert, Cas Gasi owner Luis Trigueros – who met his wife Margaret von Korff when starting the project for the famous Whitbred Round The World Race 85/86 – knows the Balearic Sea like the back of his hand. The couple like to take their sailboat out at least once a week throughout summer, so when Cas Gasi guests are looking for tips on where to go when hiring a yacht charter, they know exactly who to ask!

Special Ibiza sunsets

Ibiza and sunsets go hand in hand, and while everyone is aware of the famous San Antonio ‘sunset strip’ and its variety of chillout bars – including the legendary Café del Mar – there are also plenty of other alternative vantage points on the island to watch the sun sink into the sea each night.
