On the ground floor is the main stone entrance hall leading to the airy open plan living room/ dining room with its arched windows, comfy corner sofa, TV and large dining 12-seater dining table. The fully-equipped kitchen is accessible via an open archway and has a breakfast bar and door leading directly on to the covered terrace with alfresco dining table, barbecue and egg swing chair.

The grand main staircase is situated in the entrance hall. Leading up 4 steps, guests will find a fully-equipped gym with direct access to the pool terrace via garden doors.

Style Notes

Modern rustic with splashes of ranch-style grandeur. Nestled amongst Mallorca’s peaceful northern plains, this Finca exudes relaxed country charm inside and out. The interiors draw on traditional Mallorcan style with arched doorways and windows, natural woods and Balearic Marés sandstone used to create light, airy spaces. The entrance hall has a grand staircase which connects the various zones of the Finca together and the open plan nature of the bright living spaces, accessed by generous archways, creates a welcoming, sociable atmosphere. Mallorcan stone is used in the downstairs living room to echo the countryside setting while upstairs the mosaic tiled family bathroom compliments the natural, neutral tones that run through the rest of the house. We love the 2 interior living/entertainment rooms offering kids and adults their own separate space to unwind and enjoy some downtime. While the pool area provides the perfect place to gather together with its luxurious shaded dining area, sound systems, day beds and jacuzzi, all with magnificent countryside views.

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.
