The estate has sweeping views over the Val d’en March and enjoys an uninterrupted view of Puig Tomir and the Tramuntana mountain range, which was recently designated a World Heritage Site by the United Nations. From the Atalaya, which sits above the main house, the entire sweep of the Tramuntana range as well as the Mediterranean Sea is visible.
The vistas are complimented by the estate’s own great stone walls and terraced hills of olive and carob trees. Oak forests dot the landscape. Around the house are beautiful grounds and gardens. Two large lawns are bordered by roses, lantana, margaritas, plumbago, and other colorful flowers as well as lavender, sage, and rosemary.
Being well above sea level and close to the sea, the estate has a gentle breeze that keeps the area cooler than the valley below, even the warmest summer day. In the winter, the southern orientation of the house and gardens maximizes the sun’s warmth. Summers are spent in the cool of the courtyards, eating, reading, and playing board games. The patios and front cobbled terrace provide ample room for larger get-togethers.
One of the highlights of the estate is its organic vegetable and fruit garden. Protected by an ancient aqueduct, the garden is an Eden for those who enjoy eating fresh, nutritious food picked hours before it is eaten. Next to the garden, chickens lay eggs for the house. There is fresh lamb and kid goat from the surrounding terraces. Meals often come entirely from the estate.
