How We Live in Ibiza

Some fascinating facts about our lives in Ibiza

Some fascinating facts about our lives in Ibiza have been revealed in a study by The Digital Atlas of Spanish Urban Areas. They've catalogued masses of information about our dwellings here and Formentera and the results – in no particular – are:


Numbers: There are 64,000 dwellings, of which 21% are unoccupied in Ibiza and 50% in Formentera. By borough the percentage of unoccupied houses is Santa Eulalia – 28%, Ibiza – 23%, San Jose – 18%, San Antonio – 12% and San Juan – 5%.
Almost one third of all the occupied houses are not owned, but rented, by the people who live in them.

Typical Apartments


Age: Around 8% of the houses were built before 1900. San Juan has the highest proportion of old houses and Santa Eulalia the lowest.


Size: The most numerous of all the dwellings fall into the size group of 76 to 90 square metres - which is usually a two or three bedroom apartment.
