This hotel has a sensational position in Es Verger mountains: it seems like an eagle’s nest overlooking the village of Esporles, and is reached, predictably, by a tortuous road. The valley below is a beautiful and typical Mallorcan landscape, with tracts of pine woods and paths winding through wild thyme and rosemary bushes.
The 16thC estate has retained its original appearance, even after extensive renovation: the integrity of the interor remains intact, making you feel as if the place was always like this; yet up-to-date equipment and comforts are everywhere. There are staggering views down to the Bay of Parma.
The rooms and spacious suites exude good taste. Decoration is quite conservative, with period furniture, luxurious silk curtains in unobtrusive colours (such as light pink and yellow stripes); Art Nouveau style lamps give a charming, warm illumination. The bathrooms are luxuriously appointed. The restaurant pampers its guests either in the tafona, a restored oil mill, or on the terrace, with its breathtaking views. The light Mediterranean cuisine is the work of Jose Castoner, who began his career at El Olivio in Deia. The wine list is particularly impressive.
