From such a privileged position, snuggled between two of Mallorca’s most esteemed sandy coves (Cala Mondragó and Cala S’Amarador), this resplendent country home is immersed in the pure, natural setting of the legendary Mondragó National Park, abundant in local fauna and shady pine trees that provide a welcomed respite from the midday sun.

This waterfront location is enhanced further, by two picturesque beaches literally on the doorstep: to one side a gentle 5 minute stroll is rewarded with the fine, white sands of Cala Mondragó, where crystalline, shallow waters afford the perfect milieu for snorkelling and tasty aromas drift from a small beach bar (chiringuito) set in the sand close by. A stroll in the opposite direction reveals the less frequented but equally stunning Cala S’Amarador. Sailboats and schooners drift in and out of the bay, to admire the panorama so fervently described by many guidebooks and preceding travellers. Both beaches fly the prestigious Blue Flag Award for their clean waters, are wheelchair friendly with a lifeguard on duty during high season.

The gentle resonance of the sea lapping against this rocky enclave sets the tone for this retreat - one of relaxation, as the pace of life is shifted down a notch or two, abundant fresh, sea air is served with a generous portion of far-reaching views hard to surpass. Narrow, shrub lined paths meander through the spacious grounds, converging on a charming, crazy paved terrace monopolising spectacular views across the shallow bay, blended with the embrace of a cool sea breeze.

The front facade, characteristic of the region, consists of solid stone archways and symmetric cornerstones, whilst wooden shutters provide the trimmings to this delightful vista, the central focus naturally falls on the large wooden door that leads to an imposing entrance hall. Inside, spacious bedrooms and capacious areas for groups to congregate provide a pleasant holiday vibe in which to unwind. A recent refurbishment of the interior has created a stunning transformation throughout, incorporating four poster beds, vibrant coloured, textured, fabrics and a splash of chic with raffia and distressed wood finishes. The main house consists of four bedrooms (one with external access only) whilst a separate hideaway annexe with two additional twin bedrooms, includes a kitchenette enabling a little independence from the rest of the group - if so desired.

The historic town of Santanyi, with fortified city wall and gate (Porta Murada) is a Foodie’s Paradise, mingled with art galleries, cobbled streets, shady plazas and boutique shopping, whilst the bustle of the weekly market is in sharp contrast to the chillout aura of Finca Mondragó S’Amarador, just minutes away.

The string of rocky coves and sandy inlets that run along the south east coast of this diverse island are all within easy reach: a boat trip to the island of Cabrera, horse riding along the sandy paths of the nature reserve or following one of its popular hiking trails - there’s more than enough to keep the active entertained, however one would certainly be forgiven, should your only trip out be to the nearest supermarket in order to stock up the fridge, before settling down on one of the sun terraces or your own mini mirador, a good book and chilled glass of rose in hand. (What's more, if it’s just fresh bread and croissants for breakfast that’s needed, Maria the housekeeper is happy to bring them over in the morning.)

A short drive to S'Alqueria Blanca

S'Alqueria Blanca is a small town with a good local bakery, tapas bar, restaurants and newsagents. Before you reach S'Alqueria Blanca, take the time to drive up the hill to the Oratori de La Consolació to the small chapel at the top from where there are sweeping views across the sea.

A day trip to Sóller by train

For adults and children alike, it's fun to take the old-fashioned train from Palma (or Bunyola) to Sóller. From there you can get a tram to the Port de Sóller through the orange groves and back to then enjoy sitting in the main square in Sóller and enjoy the atmosphere.

A boat trip to the Island of Cabrera

A National Park and Marine Reserve, this makes a wonderful day trip by boat to the Island of Cabrera, a small Balearic island off Mallorca's south east corner. Take a picnic or buy lunch on board. The boats leave quite early from Colònia de Sant Jordi - best to book. Tel 971 649 034
