It is no mystery that the Messi family’s favorite place to vacation is Ibiza, because for many years this has been their refuge where they go every summer with their family and friends, renting a villa that suits their needs and tastes. The property in question cost him $350,000 a week, so he decided to buy the spectacular house in Cala Tarida on the Pitusa island for $12.5 million.
Without a doubt, the property is worth it: it is located in one of the most expensive areas of Ibiza and Europe; Absolute privacy on a 16,000 m2 land and a 568 m2 construction and allows the player and his family to enjoy the desired tranquility.
The house, 420 square meters, has 8 rooms, a cinema room and a spa with sauna, jacuzzi and beauty center, decorated in Arabic style and can accommodate up to 16 guests.
The villa has a 750-meter terrace with an outdoor lounge, hammocks, a dining room, pergolas, two bars, a dance floor and music equipment, a basement, an annex, and two pools, one of 92 meters that runs parallel to the extension of the property. Of course, in the garden there is a soccer goal installed so that Messi and his sons Thiago, Mateo and Ciro can play.
But not everithing that shines is gold. Messi bought a mansion and…. a property size issue. It turns out that the previous owner carried out works without having the corresponding permits and the local San Josep City Council has stopped any work that is carried out on the property and also demands that the illegal work carried out in advance be eliminated in order to put the house papers in order. The problem revolves around the fact that the property does not have the final certificate of work or habitability certificate, since a former owner of the property carried out works without permission in the garage.
Of course, the footballer has appealed and put the case in the hands of his lawyers, but Spanish law is very picky in cases of urban planning, if not ask Antonio Banderas who, due to a poorly built fence, lost half of his property in Marbella a few years ago. years.
Let’s hope that Messi resolves the case well so that he can continue enjoying the privileges that come with being the best footballer in the world.
