The Mediterranean island of Ibiza, Spain, may be renowned for its frenzied club culture and cosmopolitan sophistication but people tend to forget that the island is also a place of spectacular natural beauty, where beaches and dunes meet pine covered hills and rocky cliffs, and that it also features an immaculately preserved coastal fortress as well as a rich local culture. The traditional peasant dance, ball pagès, where the island’s women, bedecked in handcrafted jewels of gold, silver and coral, are ceremoniously invited by the men to join them with a click of their castanets, may seem worlds apart from the packed dance floors of the renowned Pascha and Amnesia nightclubs but it hints at Ibiza's deeper allure: the freedom to live and let live in a place where contrasting trends and attitudes harmoniously co-exist.

A new book by Anne Poelmans, “Life is Ibiza: People. Houses. Life.” published by Lannoo Publishers, aims to capture Ibiza’s magical allure through the people that have made the island a home away from home, and their extraordinary houses that have made it a hot spot for contemporary architecture. Anne’s 35-year-old love affair with Ibiza goes back to her childhood summers and her genuine passion for the island’s sensibility is undisputedly evident in the book’s 200 pages of stunning views, breath-taking architecture and gorgeous interiors.
