Mallorca farmhouse description

GENERAL
Originally built in 1625, this home has been lovingly restored over the last 40 years from a historic olive press mill to an updated farmhouse maintaining all of its original character. As you enter the gate, you are welcomed by cascading bougainvilleas, climbing roses, oleander, a lemon tree, and the most spectacular vistas of the Mediterranean Sea, the Traumuntana mountains to the north and the Andratx Valley to the south.

The vistas at this 800 feet elevation take your breath away. After parking your car in the garage you will be tempted to linger in the driveway for 6 + cars and enjoy the smells of flower blossoms and views before entering the gate. The paved driveway to this exclusive retreat is 300 meter long way off the road.

INTERIOR
The home has 7 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and a fully equipped country kitchen. Both the living & dining rooms serve as the center of the home and both rooms have open wood fireplaces supplied by ample wood fuel.

BBQ nights are held on the northwest exposed terrace off the kitchen.

GARDEN
The gardens of this mountain retreat are the owners constant source of pride. The pool is flanked by bougainvilleas, hibiscus plants and an almond grove. Sitting by the pool with the distant sound of the sheep bells as they climb the amphitheatre of hills is sublime. Private hiking trails are accessible right off the pool terrace into the National parkland that surround this home. This tranquil location is rare treat of complete privacy where clothes are optional.

                  Car: Recommended

                  This Property is Ideally Located for its Access to the Best Cycling (Where the Pros Train All Winter), Hiking, Golfing, Dining, Shopping, Diving and Sailing in Europe.

                  Looking north from the pool terrace of this property it is possible to see the highest mountain, Puig de Galatzo, in the southwest corner of the island. It reaches 1,027 meters and its very accessible with a little effort. My mother climbed it in her 70s and I have seen 10 year old girls summit without whinning. Pack a lunch and bring lots of water if its a hot day. Each person should carry a litre and a half of water. From the summit you can see on a clear day at least the half island while having lunch. In the town of S'Arraco Robin Saker is a Hiking guide who can escort you all day and give you remarkable history of the island as he has lived on the island all his life.

                  Or you can rent a yacht in the Puerto Andratx hire a skipper, and head up the spectacular coast line with 400 meter drops into the ocean. There are many fishing village ports to explore all up the coast where the snorkeling and bottle diving is sensational. You will also discover secluded beaches only accessible by boat. In the town of Sant Elm there is a very good bottle diving shop which will rent you everything you need or give you lessons and take you on a tour of the best places to dive. In the Port of Andratx you can also rent kayaks and explore the coastline much of which is inaccessible by car.

                  The whole island of Mallorca is a playground for everybody from serious adventure enthusiasts to luxury comfort seekers. It has the best shopping and dining experiences that rival Paris, Rome and Barcelona as well as Spas, Casinos, the best Clubs in Europe in Palma that close at about 6.30 am. All of which is only a 35 minute drive away. Or from the farmhouse you can set out and discover the island on high performance super light bicycles that can be rented nearby. Mallorca has the best cycling terrain in Europe which is why all the pros of northern Europe come to Mallorca to train from January to March in our mild weather. As an avid cyclists myself you can follow me on Strava.com where I can show you all my favourite routes on the island. There are many.

                  After going to the island for more 40 years in summer, spring winter and fall, I still have so much to discover about Mallorca. I feel like I have only scratched surface, partly because life in our mountain top farmhouse is so peaceful and idyllic you won't want to leave.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1973

                  About the owner: My parents bought this farmhouse has a retirement home in 1973 and we began renovation that lasted 10 years. It was a complete ruin that was abandoned during the Spanish Civil War in 1939. Today I have extended family all over the world and we call Mallorca our home base for family reunions.

                  Why the Owner Chose Mallorca:
                  My Parents fell in love with the island of Mallorca in the early 70s. It was their retirement home, hence my home. I also fell in love with the cycling, hiking & sailing that Mallorca has to offer and all my Canadian friends want to visit. So now it is used for reunions with family, friends & winter training camps for cyclists. We have also had several yoga retreats come together on the mountain, where we can spoil guests with spa treatments.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                  Located in the foothills of Tramuntana mountain, this property has direct access to the best hiking trails on the island and the best cycling roads in Europe. Only 6 kms away there is a superb 18-hole golf course as well as a tennis club. Professional cycling teams from all over the world spend three months of the winter training on the roads that pass our driveway. And with the beaches so close by I use the whole island as a training ground for Ironman triathlon competitions. But of course the Andratx valley has so much more to enjoy, such as the finest vineyard on the island very close by and remarkable restaurants in the nearby villages of Es Capedella and Calvia. And with Palma only 25 minutes away by car, the shopping and dining experiences are a bonanza.
