If you’ve ever wanted to live in a historic castle at the foot of the Serra de Tramuntana, you may never get a better chance than this.
Can Bell Esquard (which translates to “Beautiful View”) is more of a castle than a house, its turrets and crenelated rooftops giving it the look of a Neo-Gothic keep, the black-and-white painted roof tiles adding a touch of stand-out colour as the rest of the building blends into the hills of Sóller.
The house, found right in the centre of the town, is affectionately known to locals as Ses Torretes and is very similar to Tour Magdala, the historic tower in Rennes-le-Chateau. The approach to it plays into the atmosphere perfectly, with tall trees and stone pathways leading up to the large archway underneath the Gothic abbey-style windows.
Inside you can find the spaces you would expect from a castle with gargoyles and turrets: Can Bell Esquard boasts a huge 14 bedrooms, four bathrooms, two salons and a main dining room spread over a kingly 900 square metres (the entire property, including the grounds, is well over 2,000 square metres).
The castle is due for a refurbish to re-establish to its former full heights, and there is plenty of historic and artistic material to preserve here. From the cast-iron chandeliers, heraldic wall decorations, and solid wooden doors, to the gargantuan stone fireplaces and mantle pieces, the whole house is oozing with character and antiquity, ready to be loved and restored to glories past.
