Villa Can Carles, San Carlos, Ibiza

€25,000 Per Week

This traditional new-built property sits on a vast estate above the northern coast of Ibiza just outside the lovely village of San Carlos.

The villa has a total living-space of 1,000m2 and offers 6 spacious bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, all with private balconies or terraces. Can Carles has been built to perfection in one of the most spectacular areas on the island. Set on its own mountain with a 300-meter private driveway up the hill protected by security gates, Can Carles overlooks the beaches Cala Boix and Calla Mastella offering an endless sea view that never ceases to inspire you.

The house is surrounded by over 600,000 m2 of forest and country walks including sea views and mountain top views from Siesta to San Carlos (290 degrees).

It has a private orchard with oranges, avocados, lemons, peaches, cherries etc and the little farmhouse delivers fresh organic eggs daily.

Accessed from the courtyard is the spacious and airy kitchen, which has an open plan to the dining area and TV-corner. From here you can enter the outside dining space and also the big living room with open fireplace.

There is no holding back on space in Can Carles and it has a very light and spacious feel throughout. The decor is inoffensive and simple, with calming use of light, dark grey and white colours.

As you would expect, the islands come under the same broad scope of law as Spain when it comes to buying property on the islands.

However , the Balearic Government also has its own authority, including making policy decisions over issues such as tourist taxes and the licensing regime governing areas including holiday lets.

As you would expect, Spain has a well-established mechanism for buying property.

  • If you’re an EU citizen, buying is straightforward. If you are not, check whether certain restrictions apply to you (such as the time you can spend in Spain).
  • All property transactions in Spain are overseen by a Notary. He/she is there to validate the paperwork, check all necessary taxes are paid and register the property with the Spanish Land Registry. However, it is not the Notary’s role to give you legal advice or represent you.
  • Appoint a fully independent lawyer who speaks your language as well as Spanish, and who has no connection to the selling parties. The local town hall, the nearest British Embassy or online research can help you find one. Your lawyer will check that you are buying from the legal owner; whether there are existing mortgages on the property; if it complies with building regulations; and if there are developments that might affect you.

In addition to the purchase price, buyers should allow a further 10-15% for additional fees and taxes. These may include:

  • Your proportion of the Notary’s fees, according to a tariff set by law. Allow for a sum of 0.5% – 1% of the price declared in the deeds.
  • The fees of your ‘abogado’ (your own lawyer). These will depend on the complexity of the purchase, but €1500 - €3000 is a guide figure. 
  • The Land Registry fee of around 1% of the sale value.


A local capital gains tax, reflecting the gain in value of the property when it is sold, is paid by the seller. However, if that seller is non-resident in Spain and fails to pay it, be aware that the burden can fall on you as the buyer.


Routine costs and charges of owning a property in the Balearic Islands include:

  • A property ownership tax (the ImpuestoSobreBienesInmuebles (IBI)). This local tax is charged at between 0.4% and 1.1% of the valorcatastral. The good news is that this is based on the administrative value of the property, which is frequently lower than the market value.
  • A wealth tax. For non-residents, there is a tax to pay on assets you own in the country. This starts above a threshold of €700,000 per person.
  • Personal Income tax. If you’re a non-resident and you don’t receive rental or any other income in Spain, you pay one-quarter of the 2% of the valorcatastral. If you are a landlord, allow a tax bill of about 25% of the gross income.

If and when you come to sell, Capital Gains Tax (Impuesto de Plusvalia) will apply. At the time of writing, this stood at 19%.
