Eivissa, capital of Ibiza

On the 1st of June last year I moved to Ibiza, I was supposed to stay 3 months for a seasonal job. I was hired by one of the best 5* hotels in the North of the island to work in the spa as a hostess. After important work ethical issues and disagreements with the owner of the hotel I decided to leave. I ended up staying 3 days on the island…

I was so disappointed/angry/sad about that job and the horrible living conditions of the employees in a 5* hotel. Unable to afford a hotel to stay longer I booked a flight back home on the day I quit the job. To cheer me up I decided to visit Eivissa, the capital of the island, for the afternoon. I didn’t expect much of this city apart from seeing nightclubs and tall buildings.

I was so happily surprised…

En juin dernier, j’ai déménagé à Ibiza, je devais y rester 3 mois pour travailler en tant qu’hôtesse au spa d’un des plus beaux hôtels 5* du nord de l’île. Après de gros désaccords avec la propriétaire et des conditions de travail épouvantables, je décide de partir. Je serais restée 3 jours sur l’île…

J’étais tellement déçue/en colère/triste de la tournure que pris cette expérience, et vraiment en colère contre les conditions de vie des employés sur place. Ne pouvant pas rester sur l’île plus longtemps à cause du prix exorbitant des hôtels, je réservais mon billet d’avion le jour même de ma démission. Pour me réconforter je décidais de visiter Eivissa, capitale de l’île, pour la journée. Je ne m’attendais pas à grand chose à part boîtes de nuit et ville bétonnée…

Je crois qu’une ville ne m’a jamais autant étonnée.

My favorite picture –


Entering the ‘Dalt Vila’, the fortified old town of Eivissa, through this old gate. Dalt Vila has been a UNESCO World Heritage listed site since 1999.

I visited the city on a warm day in June and I took all the pictures at the ‘hora de la siesta’ which explains why all the streets were so quiet and empty. It was so relaxing and peaceful to walk around.

J’ai visité Eivissa une journée chaude du mois de juin, toutes ces photos ont été prises à la ‘hora de la siesta’, ce qui explique pourquoi il n’y a personne dans les rues.






Stunning view from the fortress –

I could really feel how important nap time is, everything was closed.







Feels like Morocco –



I found so many cute cafes with cozy terraces. My favorite though were all the hippy markets all around the city. They had amazing jewellery made with turquoises and other kinds of rocks and everything was pretty cheap.

J’ai découvert de nombreux cafés super cozy avec de belles terrasses. Les gens que j’ai rencontré étaient très sympas et accueillants. Il y a également des marchés hippy dans toute la ville, avec des bijoux magnifiques, faits avec des pierres telles que des turquoises, à des prix vraiment abordables.
