Villa Can Bosc: highly recommended

Data soggiorno: aprile 2012
We have just returned to the UK after a very enjoyable and relaxing April 2012 break at Villa Can Bosc in Sant Josep.
Firstly, our thanks to Wendy (the owner) who lives in the adjacent property for her superb hosting. Every request was dealt with swiftly, and advice on where to buy groceries, restaurants, best beaches etc was readily given.
The villa itself is comfortable and homely. Our take on Can Bosc is that it is a traditional Ibizan property (as opposed to the very expensive, uber-modern, exposed brick and glass villas we saw dotted round the hills of Ibiza) with cool shaded areas in which to relax when the temperature rises in summer.
A cleaner visits regularly and does a thorough job making it very pleasant to come back to a freshly swept, dusted and mopped villa.
The pool area is a real suntrap from 12 - 6pm. Even in early April we managed to sunbathe in the afternoon, followed by a dip in the pool, which was a bit chilly but that needs to be expected so early in the season.
We found that April is a good time to visit as many of Ibiza's restaurants are re-opening for the season (which really gets going from May 1st). You can always get parked outside the restaurants, the service is quick and friendly and the food is good.
A word of caution. Should you visit Cala Jondal watch out for the prices at the Blue Marlin. The food, setting and ambiance are first class but you pay a huge premium for the privilege.
Touring the Island is also a joy this early in the season as the roads are virtually empty of hire car motorcades and tour buses. The main roads are very good but I would recommend hiring a "robust" car as there are great coves and beaches to discover if you go off the beaten track especially in the Northern part of the Island.
The acid test is would we revisit this property if we returned to Ibiza? The answer is a definite yes.
Risposta del proprietario: A big thank you for such a magnificently positive review! I am happy that you were comfortable in Can Bosc.
As you point out, there are many advantages for coming to the island in the off season, especially preseason when everything is fresh and
ready to go!
I look forward to seeing you again next year or before.
