There is plenty of property for sale in Ibiza, one of the most beautiful and popular Mediterranean islands. However, there’s often a lot of bureaucracy that accompanies a house purchase in Spain, and securing the expertise of an English speaking expert is highly recommended. And one of your biggest decisions may be where exactly to buy on the island, although nowhere is more than about a 20 minute drive from the coast. Many families favor Santa Gertrudis in the center of the island, home to a respected English language school, while those looking for something more rural and isolated often search around the island’s north coast. Living close to Ibiza Town puts you close to much of the island’s nightlife, restaurant scene and shopping, while Es Cubells is considered to be one of the most exclusive and priciest areas on Ibiza to live.
