The beautiful island of Ibiza is one of the balearic islands, located off the coast of Spain in the Mediterranean sea. Originally famous for attracting clubbing enthusiasts, Ibiza is now home to high-end tourism. This extraordinary island has become a year-round destination for a much more sophisticated traveller.
In 1999 Ibiza’s outstanding natural beauty was recognised by UNESCO, who declared the island a World Heritage Site for Biodiversity and Culture. There are endless opportunities for you to discover pristine little beaches, or small ‘calas’, surrounded by a myriad of hiking trails. There are ancient sites dating back to different groups of settlers on the island and remarkable landmarks, such as the Posedonia of Ses Salines Natural Park, Dalt Vita - The Old City in Ibiza town and numerous picturesque villages.
Outside of the most popular tourist areas, life in Ibiza is tranquil and rural. You will find locals still living off agriculture, small village stores, olive tree plantations and fresh food markets. In the more lively parts of the island you can shop in expensive boutiques, wine and dine in a luxurious choice of restaurants, or stroll along the yacht marina, which has been enlarged and modernized in recent years.
As a mature student at our school in Ibiza you will enjoy an exceptionally high standard of language tuition, combined with many great activities, visits and social events, exclusively planned for the over 50s.
Our school is situated in the town centre, very close to the marina, the shopping mile and numerous cosy cafes. The 'Dalt Vila' – the famous historic old town is just a few minutes walk from the school.
There are 9 classrooms with air-conditioning and plenty of natural light. Facilities include a library, a study area and a lounge with snacks and a coffee machine. There are computers available for students and free wireless internet connection throughout the building. All areas of our Ibiza school are accessible by wheelchair. Next to the school you will also find an authentic Spanish bar, perfect for a drink and a chat!

In order to experience the very best of Spanish hospitality and home cooking, we always recommend our students to stay with a host family. This will give you insight into the daily lives and culture of the residents of Ibiza. You will have an enhanced opportunity to practice your Spanish and you are likely to make long-lasting friendships. All of the host families are carefully selected and inspected regularly and the majority live less than 20 minutes walk from our school. A private bedroom and breakfast is included in the cost of the accommodation. Bed-linen and towels are also included.
Self-catering, shared apartments are also available in Ibiza, consisting of single or shared bedrooms in a flat with 1 to 5 other people. There is a shared bathroom, kitchen and common areas. Your flatmates may be a combination of other students at our school and other visitors to Ibiza.
For students who wish to stay in accommodation exclusively for school students, we have a residence option located just a few minutes walk from the school building. There are 6 single rooms with flatscreen televisions, 3 shared showers and a fully-equipped kitchen. The bedrooms and common areas are cleaned each week and bedlinen and towels are provided. This type of accommodation allows you to meet students of all ages and nationalities and so is ideal for those who wish to socialize with other students during their stay.
Toda’s Ibiza offers our students so much more than the parties and the nightlife that have made the island famous. You will remember the white sandy beaches and stunning views out over turquoise water. You will find world-class restaurants, high-end fashion stores and small boutiques. There are great museums and art galleries, pretty cobbled streets and hidden treasures all through the ‘Dalt Vila’.
For mature students, our Club 50+ course has a particularly rich and varied activities program, starting with a guided tour and including events such as wine tastings, Tapas tours, beach visits and sunset hikes. You will visit the UNESCO World Heritage sites and perhaps the Hippy Market or a natural aquarium. There is usually a full-day Saturday excursion to Formentera, for all students who are interested in travelling a little further!
This course is ideal for students aged 50 and over who wish to improve their Spanish language skills and spend a relaxing holiday with other mature travellers.
