The contemporary white house with guest house, tennis court, infinity pool and lush gardens – perched on top of the exclusive golf area – in Son Vida is a mere 10 minutes’ drive from the city centre, and belongs to a German family who have had a second home on Mallorca for more than two decades.
The panoramic views once you arrive on the terrace are breathtaking – in fact it is difficult to focus on conversation as your attention is constantly drawn to the energy of the city below, the sparkling Mediterranean, and the vast natural wooded area of the Tramuntana mountains.
Pulling myself away from the views for a moment, I focus again on the handsome international jet-setter and family man sitting next to me, as he fondly describes life in the idyllic setting and tells me more about his successful professional career in the real estate sector – mainly in Germany.
He works as a property consultant and advisor who helps his clients to optimise their investment in mainly commercial properties. Albeit travelling every week to Europe’s largest cities, he says that the nicest part of his working week is “sitting in my home-office early on a Friday morning and seeing the city of Palma waking in the dawn sunlight.”
The property expert singles out the recently opened Sant Francesc Hotel Singular in Palma as a dream project, “sustainability and working on high-quality properties is the most important for me, and these ‘palacio’ buildings in the Old Town have so much potential for development.”
A warm welcome, beautiful art and design and cuisine which is in a class of its own – here every star is well deserved! […] Sant Francesc Boutique Hotel in Palma
The proud Bavarian remembers ‘love at first sight’ when he viewed the Son Vida property in 1991. Since then the vacation home has undergone five major renovations in 24 years. The latest reformation included a complete refit of the pool – which was the backdrop of a recent fashion shoot produced by abcMallorca, featuring a model in the infinity pool and the view of the island of Cabrera in the far distance.
This impressive home is much more than less!
