San Lorenzo is the lush center of Ibiza with fertile red earth and rich groves of oranges, olives, pomegranate and figs. In the past few years, San Lorenzo has developed itself from poor cousin to its glitzy coastal cousins to a destination which encapsulates contemporary trends towards rejuvenate tourism and farm-to-table cuisine.


San Lorenzo is the name of the micro-village in the hills that wind their way to Santa Gertrudis but also the region of countryside including Atzaro and the Morna Valley. The verdant embrace of San Lorenzo is a soulful destination for those looking for a spiritual connection to a region steeped in agricultural heritage and brimming with an abundance of locally grown organic vegetables and fruits. San Lorenzo is at the forefront of a burgeoning trend, blending natural, health-oriented gastronomy with tourism that appeals to families and individuals seeking both wellness and wonder.

Amongst this metaphor for life, Atzaro offers uncluttered excellence with a calming balance of Moroccan and Asian themes to create an ambiance of modern Ibicenco farmer chic. The spa is one of the best on the island with a wide selection of indulgent treatments and yoga classes set in orange groves, with aromatic herbs lining a LOVE reflection pool. Welcoming to guests and non-guests alike and a destination for all seasons.

Terra Masia is a farming collective in San Lorenzo where you can walk the abundant gardens and engage with farmers to learn about produce and farming methods in this challenging environment.

Lush are proud sponsors of the Ibiza Cricket Club. Like the Jamaican Bobsled team, many are surprised to find the Ibiza Cricket Club situated in a perfect oval of grass in what was once a Horse Polo Ground. This collective of enthusiasts have an open door policy and love seeing new people at this special cricket ground. If you are in Ibiza and want to meet some locals and share the love of the game then the team plays most weekends from April, May, September and October. There is no local league so if you want to bring a team over then speak to Lush to arrange epic cricket tours.

Another way to immerse yourself into the local culture is a visit to one of the many Pottery studios. A welcoming network of Potters is a great way to connect with locals and often an unlikely highlight to a rejuvenate holiday.

Olive groves have flourished since early Christian times, with the industry experiencing a remarkable resurgence in the year 2000.


Driving between San Carlos to the San Juan Road, one may come across an building with immense curb appeal. This building is home to Blakstad Design Consultants. Blakstad is a name synonymous with contemporary finca conversions.

An inspiration to many developers and homeowners in the island and especially around the San Lorenzo area where you will find many Blakstad country homes.

San Lorenzo is a rural pastural area of Ibiza so not on the coast however on the island one is never too far away from a serene beach. San Lorenzo is no exception and tranquil, unspoiled beaches that either offer elegant dining or rustic chiringuitos are within a 20 minutes’ drive. The closest beaches are the Lush favorites of Aguas Blancas, Cala Nova, Cala Llenya, Pou des Llou, Cala Boix to name but a few. These beaches don’t tend to be as crowded compared to the more popular beaches in the South. True to much of the North of Ibiza the beaches are set in picturesque landscapes, including rocky cliffs, lush greenery, and scenic walking paths.

While the area is quieter than Ibiza’s party hotspots, there are still some delightful beach bars and restaurants where visitors can enjoy local and international cuisine, refreshing drinks, and the laid-back Ibizan atmosphere.


San Lorenzo embraces farm-to-table restaurants and the sustainable, locally produced, organic fruit and vegetables are readily available. When shopping for the villa, there are many ecological stores selling KM0 produce.

La Paloma in the tiny hamlet of San Lorenzo is perched on top of a hill overlooking the lush interior of the island. The restaurant captures a laid-back vibe serving produce grown in their garden.

Like La Paloma, Atzaro agroturismo is as close as it gets to an institution in this burgeoning restaurant scene.

The San Juan Road is the main artery linking Ibiza Town to the North of the Island. This road has no natural footfall and seems a surprising location to find a cluster of fantastic restaurants offering a range of cuisine but common in their pursuit of high-quality ingredients and a friendly, vibrant atmosphere. The most well-known is Bambuddah. This Indonesian inspired lush green garden, large pavilions exotic handicraft and colorful soft furnishings make it one of the most unique al fresco dining experiences on the island. Nagai also offers a Japanese fusion menu, and it would be a difficult choice as to whether Nagai or Bambuddah offered the best sushi. Both are excellent but Nagai perhaps slightly more elegant and refined whereas Bambuddah has a more varied menu. Bambuddah certainly wins for the best bar and it’s always a fun night out with lots of engaging fellow diners.

Es Cailu is easily recognizable with its Windmill and characterful façade. The service at Es Cailu is excellent and they have an inherent pride that is so important for family run restaurants. The family atmosphere and walled gardens make this a beautiful evening meal often with live music. The BBQ on wood fired grill with expertly selected cuts of meats.
