This corn-coloured, stone-built home is dripping with history. Golden, oily history. Built back in 1775, it started life as an olive press. Today it’s a traditionally-styled, spacious villa full of character and surrounded by a luscious green garden and Mallorca’s rugged, silvery mountains. Inside, this grand old mill offers just the right combination of period pieces and modern comforts. The typical farmhouse kitchen is fully equipped and just waiting for family feasts on the long, wooden table. The lovely beamed ceilings and white walls carry the country-chic feeling throughout the house, and upstairs they’re complemented by pretty, shuttered windows with views over olive groves. Outside is simply glorious. Take your pick from the array of sunny and covered terraces dotted around the grounds. Whether you’re a pool lounger or a shade seeker, there’s somewhere to put down that glass of local wine and bowl of home-grown olives and enjoy the view. This quiet spot is just a five-minute drive from the turquoise cove of Cala San Vicente, perfect for scuba diving and snorkelling, and less than 10 minutes from the old town of Pollenca.
