Buying a property in Ibiza for the high or low season

Breathtaking nature, varied cuisine, charming old towns: the Mediterranean island of Ibiza is the perfect residence for anyone who wants to enjoy life to the full. No wonder, then, that people from all over the world who have a soft spot for the exquisite lifestyle decide to buy a finca or a villa on Ibiza. The character of the island is particularly marked by its annual change of season. Both the high season and the low season have a multitude of advantages - the interplay of these gives Ibiza its unique charm and promises an exceptionally high quality of life all year round.

When buying a property on Ibiza, you have the choice of using it as a second home or as your main residence. The real estate agents at Engel & Völkers Ibiza will show you the advantages of both options.

The exuberant life in Ibiza in the high season 

Ibiza's high season begins in June and ends in September. At this time, you can attend a wide variety of events and let yourself be carried away by the exuberant mood of the holidaymakers. In summer, Ibiza's pleasantly warm weather naturally provides the perfect backdrop for long evening walks on the beach and romantic dinners by the water. The island's culinary offerings are very varied and balanced - you have the opportunity to experience authentic Spanish cuisine, enjoy fresh fish and seafood and taste wines directly from the island's own wineries. If you decide to buy a property in Ibiza, you can enjoy the private atmosphere of the summer temperatures that your villa or finca on the Balearic island offers you.

The low season in Ibiza allows you to relax in a special way

During the low season, which lasts from October to May, Ibiza is at its most unspoilt. The quiet atmosphere typical of the island returns and the empty streets and small shops, which are also only moderately busy at this time, invite you to stroll and linger. At the same time, the temperatures are extremely mild even in winter, averaging 15°C - so there are no limits to the planning of your leisure activities, from shopping to hiking. After a long day in the fresh air, your house or flat in Ibiza offers you a well-deserved rest.

When visiting a restaurant or bar, you don't have to plan for long waiting times either, so you always have the option of spontaneously stopping off at one of the cosy establishments and letting yourself be spoilt with culinary delights.

Enjoy 365 days of island flair: Your primary residence on Ibiza 

Live where others go on holiday - if you decide to buy a villa on Ibiza, you can make this dream come true. The Balearic island not only impresses with great beaches and a mild climate all year round: the inhabitants in particular make the island a particularly attractive location with their relaxed, laid-back lifestyle. Ibiza makes it possible for you to find a healthy balance between work and leisure - when the daily work routine gets to your head, the oasis of relaxation is always waiting on your doorstep. 

A property in Ibiza gives you the exclusive opportunity to enjoy the Mediterranean island in all its facets - your new place of residence is in a constant state of flux due to the change of season. If the hustle and bustle of the peak summer season becomes too much for you, you always have the option of retreating to one of the quiet, historic villages or secluded coves that Ibiza offers its residents, and also enjoy the luxury of being able to return to your own house or flat at any time.

In the event that you go travelling and wish to rent out your flat in your absence, you will need a rental licence. The real estate agents at Engel & Völkers Ibiza will be happy to help you find a property in Ibiza that already has such a licence.

The advantages of seasonal use of your property in Ibiza

If you buy your house or flat in Ibiza with the desire to use it as a second home, you will benefit from the special opportunity to spend time on the beautiful Balearic island at any time and without laborious planning. You are also flexible when it comes to the timing of your holidays: for example, you can fly to Ibiza in the low season to avoid crowded beaches and high tourist numbers - after all, accommodation is always provided. 

It is up to you whether you want to spend a few free days alone to take a break from the daily work routine or whether you want to enjoy an extended holiday with your family - your villa or finca in Ibiza offers enough space and is the perfect retreat for you and your loved ones. 

If you are away from the island for a longer period of time, you don't have to worry about the security of your home, because Ibiza is a very safe island and the crime rate is low.
