If you’re planning a getaway to Formentera and don’t know where to start, this post will help you.
Formentera is an island with a special magic. If you’ve already been there, you know what we’re talking about, and if you haven’t, get ready to be captivated.
We recommend going at least once a year… without Formentera it’s like summer is not the same, but it’s precisely outside the summer season when we recommend a getaway to really connect with the island, its essence and its authentic lifestyle, devoid of so many tourists.
May is one of the best months if the weather is good, as it is the prelude to summer and will help you recharge the batteries you need in the spring. June is a safe bet as is September, and October is a very pleasant month…the weather is still good, people are more relaxed after the summer and have the joy of everything they have experienced, a slower pace…the colours of the sunset, the temperature, the long swims in the sea still warm after all the summer…arriving in September thinking that summer is over is false…if you want, you will always have Formentera at its best.
Out of season you will really discover the goodness that Formentera has to offer such as long bike rides on the dusty dirt roads of the island, moving around on a motorbike without worries (in summer motorbikes are everywhere), boat trips are an ideal plan and anchoring in a cove to bathe and enjoy the tranquillity of its crystal clear waters and even cave diving (we recommend you do it in a llaut, a typical Balearic fishing boat), improvising while enjoying its gastronomy without reservations or long waits, strolling calmly through its shops and talking to the artisans. ..
Despite being 20 kilometres long, in Formentera you will always need some form of transport to get around and enjoy the island in all its splendour. As well as motorbikes, you can find original options such as renting a mehari. On the basis of this premise, the ideal way to live a unique experience is to stay in a typical country house on the island, and if it had sea views… we would have it all.
Sometimes it is difficult to find a nice house with these characteristics available and at reasonable prices, especially in the busiest seasons. One more advantage to enjoy the island outside the official season.
We have selected three unique houses that will change your holiday experience.
