When F.Scott Fitzgerald wrote ‘life is much more successful if looked at through a single window’ he could have been staring out to sea. It is true that one could watch the sea for hours in Mallorca, or for a day, or months. The colors change constantly, the horizon fosters the imagination. Many writers find themselves in Mallorca on holiday and then pine to come back for inspiration. Fitzgerald would have appreciated Mallorca’s southern region for its views and for the ambience. Villa Rose has both.
Holiday villa location
Puerto Portals is not West Egg, but it is, without a doubt, the most glamorous region of Mallorca. Villa Rose is perched above the sea in Costa d’en Blanes, an exclusive enclave near Puerto Portals. Shimmering water and the endless horizon of the Mediterranean are the backdrop for dinner parties on the terrace, poolside repose, and dancing in the evening under the crystal chandelier in the foyer or under the stars on the terrace. Just a short distance from Portal Nous one has easy access to activities of all kinds; whether you fancy cabanas and sea-swimming and water activities at the local beaches or pret â porter shopping in Palma.
Overview of the villa
Entering the foyer of Villa Rose one stands below a cinematic two storey entry hall with a grand staircase leading to the upper floors. Large doors spill out to the terrace for dining al fresco and a crystal blue pool. The interior decor is a decidely deco palette of white leather, marble, crystal and chrome, with black and plum detailing. Topiaries and leafy ivy abound. Five bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms are private and well-appointed, two of which offer private terraces with sea views.
