The verdant rolling Llevant hills provide the backdrop to this luxurious country house hotel – an aesthetically executed conversion of a ruined 18th century farmhouse by its owners, the architect/designer Toni Estevá and his wife Catín.
Hotel Son Gener
English, Spanish, German
Understated elegance is the watchword here, where natural materials – such as the island’s ‘marés’ stone, wooden beams and Mallorcan linen – play a starring role in the restful décor. All ten well-appointed rooms are junior suites, with king-sized bed, and terrace.
The hotel’s restaurant serves classic Mallorcan cuisine, prepared by Josefa – who has cooked here for many years. The finca’s organic garden provides vegetables and hens’ eggs; meat is organic, and fish fresh and locally caught.
Four golf courses within 15 minutes’ drive, and you will find interesting contemporary art in the hotel.
There’s a swimming pool in the verdant gardens, and also a spa – with indoor pool, sauna, hammam, Jacuzzi, gym and yoga room. Treatments also available from a professional therapist, by appointment.
Palma’s Hotel Convent de la Missió is under the same ownership – but isn’t quite as tranquil as this rural idyll!
