This characterful, stylishly traditional, Finca has been tastefully transformed in to modern day Chic, whilst still retaining its conventional heritage. An ancient millstone and windmill stand proudly in the grounds, embraced by local foliage and colourful flora, whilst a cosy interior allures with snug beds, fluffy pillows and relaxing ambience, amongst family relics that tell their own tales.

Every niche cherishes traces of the love and care invested in the transformation, a stone-clad terrace offers shade over a summer kitchen, promising memorable evenings dining alfresco.  A covered chillout area and sun deck also provide areas in which to escape the hum drum of daily life.

The pool however, must be considered the paragon of this paradise, heated and enclosed in the cooler months – open, offering shade for a refreshing dip in the heat of summer. The Aqua Jetstream System enables the more energetic to swim against the tide, whilst children can spend all day in the pool should they wish, shaded from the strong rays of the midday sun.

The charm of Búger Village is just minutes away (700m), a short stroll is rewarded with warm croissants and freshly squeezed orange juice from the local family run bakery, a strong Expresso before tackling the bargain hunters at the small Saturday Market will be a memorable shopping experience. Tapas in the village plaza during the warm summer evenings is a major social event, frequently developing into one of the regular village fiestas, held at the foot of the church steps, where everyone is welcome to join the frivolity.

The captivation of relaxing in such a rural setting is complimented by the close proximity to various coves and calas, one of Mallorca’s’ longest sandy beaches, Playa de Muro, is a mere 20 minute drive away.
