As you come along a cobbled road in the peaceful Mallorcan countryside, any traditional expectations are defied as soon as you see this modern finca. Take a good look around, because this 14,000 square-metre estate is all yours. The soft pastel walls of the exterior contrast the pristine white of the inside, while floor-to-ceiling windows flood the bedrooms with light and splendid views of open fields. The home makes mealtimes feel special, whether you’re prepping fresh tapas on the marble worktop, or nibbling a bowl of olives as you perch on the water feature. Follow up morning yoga in the garden with a splash in the pool – your friends can rate your dive from up on the sundeck. In the evening, sip sangria on the veranda as the landscape turns dusky blue. It's hard to believe that the arty town of Santanyí is just a five-minute drive away – stop by for a café con leche and browse the markets. The villa also is on the outskirts of the Mondragó Natural Park, with a short drive to sandy beaches and the geological wonder of Mirador des Pontàs. What would you choose between hiking in the national park and swimming in crystal clear waters? We’d say yes to both.
