Gated Community in Cala Conta. An Eco-friendly Luxury Development

The luxury gated community Calaconta is the first residential development of its kind in Ibiza. This complex of private villas offers a number of amenities, a sophisticated security system and respects the environment. Furthermore, it is located very close to the famous beaches of Cala Conta (Cales de Comte, in ibicencan), one of the most desirable and less developed areas of Ibiza.

LOCATION:

The residential complex is located on the northwest coast of Ibiza, 500 meters from the beaches of Cala Conta, one of the most impressive stretches of Mediterranean coast. The complex consists of houses oriented to the famous Ibizan sunsets, with the islands of S’illa del Bosc and Conejera framing the picturesque scenery. Calaconta urbanization is situated 20 minutes from the airport and 30 minutes from Ibiza Town. In the nearby area there are many points of interests for visitors. The northwest coast of Ibiza has some of the best beaches, restaurants, beach clubs and hotels on the island. The nightlife of San Antonio is a 10 minutes drive and Platja d’en Bossa is 20 minutes away.

ARCHITECTURE:

The villas in Cala Conta were designed by architect MAGED Barmawi and present a modern architecture of Ibizan inspiration equipped with advanced technology. These buildings aim to reveal a modern architecture that breaks the traditional boundaries of the houses and to focus attention on the nature around them. This focus is achieved through the use of noble materials such as marble, wood and iron that evoke the dominant colors of the island; on the other hand, natural stones are quarried from the sorrounding land so that walls and terrain are intentionally confused in a single indoor-outdoor space.

These buildings present a successful fusion between a fundamentally minimalist design, but inspired by the traditional architecture of Ibiza, which stands as a whole by straight lines and a mixture of cubic volumes. The result is pure and simple shapes, but thanks to more organic elements like natural stone walls, dehumanization and coldness, that sometimes stigmatizes minimalist architecture, is in part avoided.

Each villa is west facing and has a private pool and large terraces, gardens, secure parking and panoramic views of the sunsets of Cala Conta. Architecture has been used to create natural air currents to reduce the need for air conditioning. Each house recycles all their water and has its own geothermal system for cooling, heating and generating hot water, with a minimum consumption of conventional energy sources.

The buyer is also offered with the possibility of designing the interiors of the home from scratch, together with Calaconta’s department of architecture, always respecting the esterior architectural style of the complex and thus maintaining a modern version of the architectural essence of Ibiza.

ECO-FRIENDLY:

Calaconta is the first development of the island with green credentials, such as been qualified eco-friendly. As mentioned above, the villas are supplied with geothermal energy for heating and cooling, efficient rain water recovery system for garden irrigation and greywater recycling through a treatment process. The promoter José Peman says that, during the construction of the complex, recycling of aggregates was performed; rocks and earth have been removed from the sorroundings, thus reducing fuel costs deriving from transport.

SECURITY:

Calaconta villas have 24-hour security every day of the year. The gated community has private paved roads, accessible only through a checkpoint with personalized access. Besides being a gated complex, it has an active and passive perimeter security system, thermal, volumetric and contact controls, all centralized in the checkpoint office of the urbanization. Thanks to these stringent security measures, Calaconta is also presented as a lucrative investment opportunity for vacational rentals.

SERVICES:

Calaconta aims to be the finest of all residential complex in Ibiza. The gated community offers a personalized 24-hour concierge service and has a Spa center with water treatments, massages, cardio zone and gym, among others. Community gardens are the result of a sustainable landscape design that has been raised with simplicity and functionality: grass, arid zone plants and aromatic succulents plants that are kept throughout the year. The administration offers the owner of each house the possibility of hiring lawn care and pool.
