“One of the oldest and largest Mallorcan properties, this magnificent 1672 finca dominates the landscape and boasts a unique elevated position with commanding views. From the vast sumptuous suites (some with super-king four poster beds) and generous marble bathrooms with underfloor heating to the lofty gourmet Oleum restaurant with its two giant ancient olive presses and overall 50-strong team of staff, this traditional hotel oozes luxury and grandeur. Guests can drink in the 360 degree views, simply relax in one of the cosy nooks, enjoy an innovatve cocktail or even dine in the treehouse overlooking the 30 metre pool with private cabanas. Foodies get to feast on a varied menu complemented by local wines (including wine from the hotel estate’s vineyard). Breakfast is a lavish affair with eggs laid by chickens that roost in the grounds. Art lovers will enjoy the owner's impressive collection including work by Marc Chagall, David Hockney and Christo.”
