It's striking how this traditional Mallorcan finca has been so carefully renovated to respect the past. Recently updated in a lavish manner, it beautifully juxtaposes old and new. Along with its sage green shutters and typical stone exterior, you'll find clever bits of contemporary architecture, and an olive press sits beside designer furniture in the mill room. The aesthetic is continued in the bedrooms, where some boast exposed ceiling beams and others freestanding egg-shaped bathtubs. Bright splashes of colour and the occasional use of a graphic print complement the otherwise natural palette that mirrors its setting. What we really love about this place is that it's made for socialising, with two dining tables large enough to host an awards dinner, let alone a family reunion. There are numerous outdoor seating areas, all with stunning views, and even the pool is lined with more sun loungers than you can shake an olive branch at. The best spot must be at the top of the outdoor metal staircase, where a rooftop terrace hides a Jacuzzi with unbeatable views. For dinner, combine your efforts in the stylish indoor kitchen or go rustic, and cook outdoors on the wood-fired barbecue. And here you'll be just a ten-minute drive from Puerto Pollensa for meals out and days on the beach.
