Stillness, is one of the 7 key principles of zen architecture: the theory being that meditative thinking can be reflected in the physical constructs of space. Throughout Villa Mar, you sense that careful thought and intention has been paid to reflect this ideology. Inspired by the buddhist practice of meditation, the spaces of this property elicit a state of calm concentration meant to encourage awareness and creativity. If you are in need of creative vision and are looking for a peaceful respite, Villa Mar offers just that.
Rental villa location
Villa Mar clings to a cliff that gives way to the sea in southwest Mallorca. The Mediterranean fills the frame of each window throughout the estate. In the summer the sun sets over Sa Dragonera, and in winter it sets over Ibiza. Nestled at the end of a cul-de-sac above Cala Llamp, the location is clandestine, but within minutes of the fashionable fishing town, Port d’Andratx. Every amenity that you need is on the property, but if you decide to leave the villa, there is entertainment for all predilections.
