This farmhouse was built more than 400 years ago on a col in the mountains. It was an isolated family-bubble in 1625 and still is today. While everything (shops & restaurants) are accessible & visible below with panoramic views of the whole southwest corner of island, you will have the whole UNESCO protected mountain side to yourselves.
This majestic fully equipped 420 square meter finca (farmhouse) with two private wings sits on a col 260 meters above sea level. We have been hosting families from all over the world, of all ages for over 40 years.
A labyrinth of walking trails through the surrounding pine forests were terraced for olive and almond orchards centuries ago. This space was perched on a ridge was strategically located for farmers to bring their harvests of grain and olives for pressing into oil & ground into flour.
In 1973 the current owner and his parents found the ruin after it had been abandoned 50 years earlier during the Spanish Civil War. In the 70s it took 10 years to restore the Finca to modern living standards. Since 2010 it took another 10 years to transform the family home into a 4-star vacation experience for special occasions & family reunions.
TODAY as you enter the gate, you are welcomed by a cactus garden, cascading bougainvilleas, climbing roses, oleander, lemon, fig & pomegranate trees, and the most spectacular vistas including mountains, sea, and valley.
Recently designated as UNESCO World Heritage Site, the vistas of the mountains, at this 800 feet elevation are breath taking. 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 providing privacy and tranquility.
INSIDE this authentically restored farmhouse are 7 bedrooms and one small nursery, 5 full bathrooms and two half-bathrooms and a fully equipped brand new authentic kitchen with modern appliances perfect for group cooking (or caterers which can be arranged). Both the kitchen & dining rooms serve as the centre of the home and have open wood fireplaces supplied by ample wood fuel. And of course there is wi-fi internet access throughout, a 55" Smart Flat Screen TV to watch movies, and a library of books.
The formal dining & living rooms and kitchen are divided by 3-foot thick walls with arched passage ways between all three principle rooms.
THE KITCHEN has vaulted beamed ceilings, the original wood burning oven, gas oven & electric hub on the stone centre island. You'll love the view of the mountain range and the walk-out to a back terrace complete with a small garden and BBQ. The kitchen is fully equipped to accommodate large groups with two dishwashers, two large fridges, coffee machines, blender, toaster and microwave.
