History: After knowing the island for almost 20 years we bought this house to be able to spend authentic quality Mallorca time with our numerous 3, maybe soon 4, generations family and friends and we have been renovating it this last year. We spend a lot of effort to restore and preserve the original details and charm. The wood handicraft and stonework are from the beginning of the last century and from high quality material that was in that time used in noble houses. In the kitchen we have combined the old original traditional kitchen with the best modern standard, a 90 cm Smeg stove with 5 burners and a 90 cm electric oven to combine with the traditional wood oven.
