Mallorca has a long and varied architectural history due to its isolation and international inhabitants. Scholars and enthusiasts flock here to wander through Roman walled pueblos like Alcúdia and tour minimalist masterpieces by architects such as Jørn Utzon. Villa Vincente offers a chance for anyone obsessed with 20th-century modernism to live in a house that adheres to the tenets of minimalist design, but with maximum comfort and accessibility. If your aesthetic predilection is a white cube suspended above the sea with all the amenities, we recommend Villa Vincente.
Holiday villa location
Villa Vincente sits above the southern seacoast of the Mediterranean in Costa d´en Blanes. Nestled in an exclusive enclave just minutes from the eponymous Puerto Portals Marina and just a short drive away from Mallorca‘s capital, the Gothic gem Palma de Mallorca. The property looks out at the wide green pine forests of the island, and the sea and sky are seamless. The vantages from this location are some of the most spectacular in the island for sunsets and watching the moon rise over the waters.
Overview of the villa
For modernists who appreciate less is more, Villa Vincente is heavenly. A minimalist estate suspended above the sea, with a careful curation of essential designer elements and furnishings from the likes of Roche Bobois and beni ourain carpets. No art hangs on the walls the walls, there is no need. Here, art cannot compete with the landscape, so instead, large windows purposefully frame views of sea and sky from the 5 bedrooms. A pool glitters on one of the terraces facing the sea, while just inside an open plan living and dining room create a seamless transition from interior to exterior spaces. For designer and architect enthusiasts alike, this refuge offers all the accoutrements of a 5 star hotel.
In keeping with the minimalists´theory of ‘essences’ light, form, materials, and place influence one’s experience and feeling of a space, the villa has five light-filled bedrooms with five state of the art bathrooms. The bedrooms are outfitted with flatscreen TVs, designer upholstered beds, desks for writing, and views of the sea. On each floor are private terraces with views out to sea. Sleeping 10 comfortably, with plenty of private interior and exterior spaces for repose, reading, and total relaxation.
The ground floor is an open plan living area and dining space with a double-sided fireplace, carefully designed to maximise sea vistas and open space. Floor to ceiling doors flung wide to the terrace create a seamlessness between interior and exterior spaces. The dining area seats 8 easily and every amenity is considered in the state of the art kitchen with sleek french marble counters and an eat-in island. Modern glass lighting fixtures and brass findings add warm elements throughout.
Four bedrooms occupy the upper levels of Villa Vincente, and there is one bedroom on the lower level looking over the pool. Each room is white on white with carefully curated beni ourain carpets, designer beds, desks, and wide open views of the sea from private balconies. There is a private terrace on the top floor.
The large terrace acts as an extension of the interior living are on the ground floor, and a lower terrace has a significant size pool with chaises longues for repose, and umbrellas for shelter from the midday sun. There is a private terrace on the top floor of the villa. The villa is flanked by two exterior staircases for and set in a garden of succulents and indigenous plantings.
Maid Service is included.
Outdoor living areas
The interior and exterior spaces of the villa merge when the large glass doors are flung wide, and the terraces throughout serve as extensions of the house rather then separate spaces.
