the Mediterranean island, on the latitude of Alicante, ca. 120 km away
from the mainland of Spain and about
the same distance from Africa, is ca. 20 x 40 km in size. The population
consists of 70.000 locals and 20.000 foreigners, who mostly came as tourists
and then got captured by the magic of the island.
Ibiza is hilly, covered with pines all over the mountains, who's highest
is 400m. The valleys are fertile and very beautiful, - but it is not only
the beauty of the island, it is the special atmosphere of Ibiza, which
is indescribable, - it has to be experienced.
FalconBlanco is situated in the heart of the island, away from all tourist
activities. The place consists of about 6 acres of garden, forest and agricultural
land. Besides many pines, you find ancient olive- and carob trees as well
as fruit trees, like grenadine-, fig-, orange-, apricot-, almond trees,
etc. The rustic property is elevated and surrounded by forests and fields.
The panorama of the view includes hills with some farms, on the horizon
the ocean. The original building is more than 800 years old and is restored
and extended in it's old style. The central place is the kitchen, it's
fireplace and the covered porch. Some sleeping accommodations are connected
to the original building, others are up to 100 m distant, scattered over
the large area. The new buildings are made of burned bricks and partly
encased with natural stones. All floors are tiled. Guest rooms have one,
two or three beds and there are 9 bathrooms available. The rooms are small
and simple (no closets). Life in Falcon Blanco happens mostly outdoors,
rooms are mainly meant for sleeping. Different terraces and areas invite
to sit in small groups, or also to be alone...
A peculiarity is the big group room, a dome of 8,5m diameter, whose parable
shape produces special acoustics, that provoke to sing, specially overtones.
To make music in this room, will be an exceptional event (bring musical
instruments). To meditate or even
just to be there...
What about jumping into the tiled pool? 10x5m, filled with fresh spring
water. Secluded bays you find 9 km to the north on several walking trails,
by bicycle in 20 min, by car in 10 min. The next village, San Lorenzo,
is 1,5 km, Sta. Gertrudis 4,5 km, Sta. Eulalia 9 km and Ibiza town 15 km
Beside it's almost all year sunny and warm weather, Ibiza's special energy
and atmosphere is very stimulating. It enhances the individual powers.
(Sometimes not only the positive ones!) It provokes self experience
on different levels (even without therapeutical work) which normally in
other places does not happen under usual daily circumstances. FalconBlanco
is a good space to experience oneself, by working together with other people
from different cultures from all over the world, relaxation and meditation
helps to reach a personal clearing. It might happen (but not always
does) that after transformation of ones negative and partly aggressive
forces into constructive and creative channels, the experience of creative
self-expression can open up new levels of being. Nowhere else than in Ibiza,
reside so many painters, poets, musicians
and writers, not mentioning the
hidden living philosophers...
