Our Most Historical Villas
El Cortijo de los Olivos
As a general rule, when a property features fortified walls and various stone courtyards, it probably wasn’t built just a few years ago. And that’s certainly the case at El Cortijo de los Olivos – a 16th century beauty with a sense of history that radiates through its hallways.
The property’s interior has been restored without forgetting what makes it so special. The light stone walls contrast with the dark woods, and the high ceilings create cool spaces and a sense that guests are walking through a palace.
The courtyards, gardens, the pool and interior spots like the billiards room and winery combine the historical setting with modern luxuries – there’s no wondering why this villa won the EU/Europa Nostra award for the conservation of cultural heritage.
Can Valls was built in 1862 and has the luxury of being perched on a mountain side looking out to breath-taking rural views. The rectangular shape of the villa itself forms a courtyard decorated with a surrounding array of Mediterranean plants.
The exterior area features a stone pool area that brings a sense of age to each footstep. In the interior, the property’s tradition is also kept in mind – equipped with modern yet classical pieces of furniture and natural material finishes.
Can Valls looks out on the Bay of Palma and is surrounded by the Tramontana Mountains and is equipped with marble flooring – luxurious details that evoke feelings of privilege in an ancient location with views that have been gazed upon for centuries.
Bonaire is surrounded by gentle rolling hills that give way to the Tramuntana Mountain range and is located just outside the historical town of Benissalem – a town known for its wood and stonework where 18th and 19th century architecture lines narrow streets. The area surrounding Bonaire is known for its wine production, with an abundance of renowned wineries and vineyards dating back centuries.
The villa itself is also work of the 18th century but has been reformed and furnished to make it a modern, comfortable space while retaining a classical feel with its natural finishes with wood, stone, tiles all making appearances. The five-bedroom villa has a distinctively Mediterranean feeling due to its beautiful exterior amongst an abundance of palm trees and the traditional tiled pool area. There’s even a beautiful old small chapel by a fountain and decorated with flowering vines on its walls.
Near the beautiful town and port of Soller, hidden in a tranquil valley on a 50 hectares of olive groves and orange trees is this 17th century restored farm house Son Salas. The huge property of nine bedrooms features beautiful views of the surrounding valleys that make dining al fresco a mystic experience amongst the gardens and cobblestone courtyards that wind around the exterior.
Inside, Son Salas’ stately style focuses on natural materials, with wood being the main protagonist with occasional touches of tile and beautiful old stones like those in the dining room – originally an olive press – that evoke feelings of living in a bygone age.
Son Termes is an atmospheric 16th century property located on a peaceful private estate amongst acres of orange and lemon trees that fill the air with a beautiful citrus scent. Throughout the spaces of the house the property’s history contrasts with modern luxuries – old fireplaces and the chapel as well as high quality sound systems and televisions.
One of the most intriguing pieces of history found in this seven-bedroom villa is the oil-press room where the atmosphere of the property is projected through the perfectly-maintained old machinery and equipment.
