Hotel Son Escanelles is a traditional country finca hotel situated just five minutes’ walk from the picturesque mountain village of Valldemossa, one of Mallorca’s most beautiful locations and most visited places, for its Carthusian monastery where Chopin stayed. Son Escanelles excels at making its guests feel as if they are returning to the home of an old friend, and, despite the traditional feel, the hotel provides all the expected facilities and modern conveniences.
With only seven individually decorated rooms, there is a welcome sense of privacy, and the owners, Ramon and Lena, lend a wonderfully personal touch wherever possible. Breakfast at Son Escanelles has a reputation for its freshness and use of locally sourced produce, including eggs from their own chickens. Although the hotel doesn’t have a dedicated restaurant for evening meals, if you are lucky, you may receive an invitation from Ramon to cook for you, which is an opportunity not to be missed.
We Love… Relaxing on one of their patios, taking in the striking peaks of the Tramuntana.
Why you should stay here… The relaxation offered by the lush mountain setting and breathtaking scenery provides a fresh respite from scorching summer temperatures.
Good to know… Nearby Valldemossa is home to the Costa Nord Cultural Centre (founded by the actor, Michael Douglas), which is great for scratching your cultural itch and seeing what’s happening locally.
