• Sip cocktails by the pool
  • Unwind with a massage on the terrace
  • Indulge with Mediterranean fine dining

At this historic manor, rustic charm meets artistic luxury. Think sweet-scented lemon groves and private plunge pools. Think exposed timber beams and artwork by over 750 local painters. And, from fine-dining indulgences to spa treatments, it’s all wrapped up on a quiet hillside outside a quaint Mediterranean village.

The rooms here invite in all their setting’s rural beauty, perhaps for tea taken on your terrace. Indeed, they’re a delight of understated style, furnished with whitewashed walls, Mallorcan antiques and tiled flooring. They all feature gorgeous views of the gardens or village surrounds. But, for the full luxury experience, look for those with four-poster beds and marble bathrooms, or upgrade to a suite for your very own private terrace and plunge pool.

There’s also a choice of dining venues. The hotel’s signature offering, El Olivo, is the obvious standout, where classic Mediterranean cuisine is served up among hanging vines and flickering candlelight. The dishes range from locally sourced vegetables to just-caught seafood and sautéed meats, all showcased across tasting menus. The drinks menu has even won an Award of Excellence from the Wine Spectator. For lighter bites, head to Café Miró, where fresh cheeses and hearty paellas are dished up among original artworks on a beautiful, mountain-facing terrace.

You then might want to burn any excesses off with the fully equipped gym, tennis court or a lazy width or two in the pool. Otherwise, unwind with a drink from the bar, or perhaps book a treatment at the spa. There’s nothing more relaxing than a massage taken on a private mountain terrace. Don’t also forget the ever-enticing hot tub. If you’d rather head out and explore, however, you can hop on a Vespa, book onto a photographer-led walk and even learn about the local crafts with ceramic, sculpture and painting classes.
