Style Notes

Modern rustic interiors with touches of wood and stone accompanying some beautiful tiling, echoing the villa’s verdant natural setting. The white walls of the downstairs create a light, airy and minimalist feel – perfect for cooling down in on hot days while vibrant modern art pieces and patterned tiles adorn the walls and bathroom/kitchen areas adding splashes of color and interest. The large glass windows and doors have been designed to make the most of the stunning views so you can soak up the area’s rugged natural beauty from any space. We love the huge pool area, surrounded by manicured lawns and sun loungers, where you can properly unwind to the sounds of nature. The covered terrace and air-conditioned interior provide welcome respite on hotter days, and provide somewhere luxurious to chill or hang out whatever the weather.

Mallorca, Spain

Sandcastles and sunshine

One of Spain’s four sun-kissed Balearic islands, Mallorca is perfect for an easy family vacation. Popular beach resorts abound but there are hidden treasures too: golden stone hill towns, quiet beaches and olive groves, if you look hard enough. Take tots on the Palma-Soller vintage train, make sandcastles on the beach, and order kid-friendly tapas in beach bars. Pack sunscreen - you'll need it.
