Son Balagueret at Son Bunyola
Europe / Spain / Mallorca
Son Balagueret is a traditional and secluded four bedroom Mallorcan villa with plenty of space for guests to relax and take in the beautiful views of the Mediterranean Sea.
This villa is full of history as the original turret dates back to the 13th century. The small slotted secret windows would have been used for signalling to similar lookout points in the area to warn of possible attacks. The sheltered courtyard central to the house is the perfect place to relax and find a cozy corner to read a book.
The villa can sleep eight adults in four bedrooms. One bedroom is located in the villa’s signature turret, with a curved stairwell leading up to the first floor sitting room and ultimately to the upper level bedroom. Son Balagueret is available on a self-catering basis.
Son Balagueret boasts an interconnected lounge and dining area, a perfect place to eat your breakfast together and start your day. Outside of the villa, two of the most popular shared places for guests to enjoy are the spacious outdoor dining and lounge areas, both with breath-taking views of the coastline. From here, it's only a short walk down to the private heated swimming pool (12 x 5.5 meters).
The Son Bunyola Estate
Welcome to Son Bunyola on the picturesque Spanish island of Mallorca, Sir Richard Branson's favorite Mallorcan Retreat. The estate on Mallorca's northwest coast covers 680 acres of stunning landscape and includes three villas: Sa Punta de S’Aguila, Sa Terra Rotja and Son Balagueret. With five and four bedrooms respectively, these villas are currently available to book for stays of 7 nights.
Central to the estate is a large historic manor house, or ‘finca’, dating from the 1800's. This building is currently unused and forms an incredible centerpiece to the dramatic scenery. Terracing surrounds the manor house with vines, citrus fruit trees, almonds and hundreds of olive trees.
The Son Bunyola estate is part of a World Heritage site and is home to many olive and almond trees as well as grape vines. Due to its position located on a mountain range parallel to the north-west coastline, centuries of agricultural activity have transformed the landscape with terraces and inter-connected water ways. This spectacular setting is definitely one of the most prized aspects of the estate and is something the team are happy to protect and enhance. The north-west coast has local rocky beaches. If you are looking for sandy beaches, head to the south-east side of the Island.
Eating and taking advantage of the fresh produce around the island is definitely one of the most important aspects of staying at Son Bunyola! The local produce such as fish, lamb, meats cheeses, fresh bread and pastries and of course olives have a huge influence on the seasonal menus. In general Mallorcan wine is served, both red and white which is of high quality.
Pop to the local markets to buy the freshest ingredients to enjoy during your stay or arrange to have your fridge filled with all of your favorite food and drinks. In-villa dining with a private chef can also be organized during your stay (additional charges will apply).
