Located in the upper part of Cala Saona, the property dates back to early 1956 (around the 1930s) and, due to its location and extension, was the agricultural centre of Formentera, a reference point for the whole part of the island facing Cala Saona.
An initial partial renovation of the main building dates back to the 1970s.
In the 1990s, with the new ownership, the first complete restoration and conservation project was entrusted to architect Philippe Rotthier, who gave it its particular structure and current volumetric characteristics, expanding the property from 60 to 220 square metres.
Philippe Rotthier became Ibiza's most important interpreter of traditional architecture in those years. The houses in which the Belgian architect is involved are built according to traditional techniques and his design aims to give them maximum self-sufficiency. Rotthier became a specialist in archaic building, being at the time one of the few architects in the Balearic Islands with the knowledge and maturity to build houses linked to a thousand-year-old tradition
Based in the Balearics since 1972, Rotthier has realised numerous restoration and construction projects between Ibiza and the Balearics, which have been published worldwide.
Can Jordi is his only work in Formentera and has been published in numerous architectural magazines and catalogues.
Today Rotthier, at the age of 81 and still in Ibiza, is retired.
However, thanks to his inspiration, plans and the work of his studio, the second renovation and extension of Can Jordi, according to the original design, was approved in 2022.
The new approved project includes the extension of the existing building with four new bedrooms and four bathrooms on the ground floor, and a basement where a Gim room, a large games room, a sauna, a large bathroom with showers, an English patio, a large laundry room, a technical room and a storage room are planned.
The existing building will all be used as a living area with lounges, dining room, kitchen, terraces, except on the upper floor where there will be a study room, with a bathroom and the existing outbuilding that will house a junior suite with its own bathroom.
Outside, there will be a swimming pool.
The new intervention, as in the original project, will be limited to the completion of the new spaces without intervening in any way on the existing, and will expand the property from 220 to 392 square metres plus 148 square metres of basement.
Wonderful land of 25,000 square metres divided into olive grove, lavender field, area with fruit trees, swimming pool area, paddel field etc, with glimpses of the sea here and there, about one and a half kilometres from the beach of Cala Saona, the port of La Savina and the village of San Francisco, a small cape of the island.
