Ibiza retreat

I was blown away by the beauty of these photos. Can Talais is set on a hiltop in Ibiza and has some fantastic views. This is the location of the fabulous wedding I posted earlier today. The story of it is also very interesting. The British actor Terry Thomas discovered the old finca in the 1960's while horse riding with his wife, they rebuilt the house in true Ibiza style. The hotel is still run in the family by Thomas' son and wife. Isn't it gorgeous? And isn't it a fabulous fantastic location for a wedding??

  29. wow, that really is a great location, a friend of mine stayed there years back and it looks even better now - they have made some fab improvements... I was in Ibiza recently for a wedding, not quite as stunning a location as this one... but the music was amazing, the best sound i've heard outside of a club ever... check out www.ibizapa.com
