An oasis of calm awaits you a mere 4 km from the noise of quirky, stylish Port d’Andratx. Son Esteve, a former fortress and hundred-year-old tafona or oil mill, is hidden away far from the road. Today, it also houses a collection of agricultural equipment, and without losing its rustic-genteel character, the finca has been lovingly restored and kitted out with all modern equipment and comforts. Due care has been paid to authenticity in the decoration of the seven rooms. The beds are all cast iron, and the chairs have rush seating. The sheets are linen, and the furnishing fabrics have been manufactured to the same design, but in various colour schemes, by a small weaving mill on the island. Ceiling beams create and add a certain gnarled atmosphere and charm. From the beautiful pool you have a view of the mountainous countryside; or, closer to hand, of the building’s stone lookout towers that have served through the centuries to protect the locals from pirates.
