Writers have come to Mallorca for centuries. It is easy to contemplate a different life, find a slower rhythm and delve into another language literally and figuratively speaking. However, in the southwest of Mallorca when the sun sets it is often very quiet. The sight can leave even the most conversational, without words. Victor Hugo wrote; ¨There is one spectacle greater than the sea, and that is the sky.¨ If where they meet- on the horizon of the Mediterranean-is why you come, Villa Olympia, is where you want to stay.
Rental villa location
The villa is perched above the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean with an unobstructed view from every room of the wide open sea and sky. Located just 10 minutes from Palma, the island´s world-class capital. The metropolitan town of Portal Nous has all the amenities; restaurants, shopping and conveniences one could wish for.
Overview of the villa
Villa Olympia is a contemporary nod to the Greek games and the architecture resonates. The curved colonnade of the front terrace has classical doric columns and the building is all on one level, with each room facing the sea, much like an ancient arena. A large shimmering infinity pool meets the horizon. There is a cloistered dining area for al fresco meals, and 5 modern colourful bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. The lower level of the structure has an indoor pool with vaulted ceilings and spa facilities. A lush Mediterranean garden with indigenous plantings surrounds the building. For a family or large group, Villa Olympia is a respite from all the confines of busy life, but with all the amenities for modern living.
The villa sleeps 10 comfortably. Five colourfully accented modern bedrooms have views of the sea with ensuite spa-inspired bathrooms.
The ground floor has an open plan living room and dining room. Glass walls open to the terrace throughout the property. A carefully curated and very contemporary art collection has been selected for the villa, and there is art is every room. The sleek black and chrome chef´s kitchen leaves nothing to be desired, and private chef services are available to guests. There are five opulent bedrooms with platform beds and ensuite bathrooms. There is an elevated yoga platform, and a large portico for escaping the sun with a book in the day´s heat or watching the sea and sky with a glass of cava in the evening. The house is fully air conditioned and has wifi throughout.
The lower floor of the villa has a well-equipped spa with a large indoor heated pool, a sauna, horizontal hot stone shower and day beds for siestas, post-treatment.
The infinity pool has wicker cabanas and chaises longues with umbrellas for sun lovers and those who prefer the shade. There is an outdoor chill out lounge off the portico, and the interior and exterior spaces are seamless when the glass walls are flung open.
Maid services included.
Outside living areas
The villa has a number of areas outside for relaxing and taking in the sun, by the pool and under the portico, and the entire plan of the house has been designed to live a plein air in the summer.
Good to know…
The villa is 22 km from the airport and 2 km from the sea. There are chef services available upon request.
