Six guest houses of various sizes belong to the vast XVI century noble estate that has been in the same family for the last four centuries. Guest houses sit aside from the main residence that is still occupied by the owners and share between separate part of the gardens and generous pool.
The natural stone old houses have been recently meticulously restored creating all modern facilities whilst preserving the original historic features. Magnificent views to the mountains and the estate fields with almond, olive and carob trees are complimented by remarkable tranquillity and convenient proximity and direct connection to Palma.
Guests houses are set amidst spacious gardens with autochthonous plants of the island and share a large salt water swimming pool with a changing room. There is plenty of space for both a quiet rest in a hidden garden corner and for children to play together on a lawn. All houses have their own private terraces and enjoy beautiful views over the countryside and mountains. The vast private land surrounding the estate buildings ensures a perfect sleep with the distant village background of sheep bells and chickens. Wild rabbits, partridges and pheasants crossing the private drive are not an unusual sight.
Houses are decorated with a mix of modern furniture and antique pieces from the family heritage. They are fully equipped with all modern facilities including air-conditioning in all rooms, quality kitchen appliances, free wi-fi internet, TV with international channels. Private parking. We provide kitchen and bathrooms supplies. The daily rate includes weekly cleaning with a change of bedding as well as final cleaning.
The group of houses of various sizes provides a rare opportunity for a private family holiday or can accommodate a large group of friends or several families travelling together whilst ensuring everybody's privacy in the spacious estate grounds and their own outdoor space. If you are interested in renting all the houses for a special event, please enquire well in advance to ensure availability and a special rate.
NB! Due to the stream running through the property and a water well we can only welcome children from the age of 8.
We stayed in the Herbasana guest house for a few days in June, and it was one of the highlights of our trip. After a few days running around Palma on foot, Els Sestadors is the perfect place to stay if you want to rent a car and see the island, then come back and relax at the end of the day. Beautiful property, the rooms were elegant and clean. The two-bedroom units offer lots of privacy and are well equipped. The vibe is laid back and relaxed, pool is lovely, and our host Jose was wonderful. It's not far from town, but so quiet that you feel like you're way out in the country. Establiments is a beautiful village, and we enjoyed getting to know the area. And go grab a beer and some food at Es Muntants if you're there, we loved it. It's not a long drive from Valdemossa and the mountains, so don't miss that. Next time we're in Mallorca, we would love to return to Els Sestadors.
Weekly cleaning with change of bedding and final cleaning are included in the rate, as well as taxes. We have a minimum age limit of 8 years for the safety reasons. Smoking is permitted only on the private terraces. No noisy events are allowed on the estate. Winter monthly rate excludes electricity (by the meter).
I stayed in Salvia with my oldest daughter for 5 days in the end of June to celebrate her end of exams and to relax and recharge and we did all of these things and more during our wonderful stay. Everything was absolutely perfect, the setting of the estate, practicality and furhinishings of Salvia, its cleanliness and above all the location. As almost everybody noted in the previous reviews it is ideal to be in the peaceful " away from it all" settings and still reach Palma within 10-15 mins drive. I can not recommend this place highly enough and we plan to come back as a whole family taking a bigger place on the estate. Person who made a huge difference to our stay is Zaretta, the property manager who was simply amazing. We arrived in the early afternoon, hot and tired from our journey and were welcomed by cool rooms and big plate of cherries on the table which is our favourite fruit. She was incredibly swift in her replies to any questions and requests we had during our stay and very helpful with her suggestions on what to do in the area. Zaretta let us stay later on our departure day as our flight was in the evening and this way extended our holiday and made it even more relaxing and enjoyable. We will definitely be back in the near future.
We stayed in the cottage above with the most beautiful views and a fantastic sun terrace. As a group of girls we decided not to rent a car but instead make use of the easy and cheap transport system. The bus stop for Palma is at the end of the driveway and could not be easier to use with buses every 15 minutes. We also commandeered a fabulous taxi driver who took us to all the spots we wanted to visit that were a little out of the way. Booking a taxi from the cottage was initially tricky as they could not find an address on the system despite what the welcome pack saysand we resorted to calling Zaretta who manages the reservations.
We also arrived on a bank holiday which meant the shops were closed. Zaretta very kindly pointed this out before we arrived and then very kindly stocked the fridge for us from a list I sent. Her attention to detail and her willingness to help with all my questions and restaurant bookings was what made for an absolutely perfect 5 days.
The cottage was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The air conditioning system was not in the correct mode and needed changing by the owner as it is preset. We did not realise this and so suffered slightly from a very hot period. There should have been mosquito coils but again we could not find them which resulted in a fair few bites!!! Our only major criticism of Herbesana was that the pillows were dreadful. A real shame as they really did make a difference to the level of sleeping comfort and when we return next year, which we will, I will be checking the pillow situation.
The location of the cottages is fantastic and we were able to go out walking every morning, collecting breakfast on the way home from a local bakery. The little enclave of cottages was very quiet and would be perfect to hire for a big family group.
My friend and I stayed at the property for 1 week. It is exactly as described and shown on the photos, super clean and extremely well maintained. The owners are very nice and helpful. They create the perfect balance of being there when you need them but on the other side making you feel free like a bird :) We enjoyed our stay there so much we didn't go anywhere else and if we could have, we would have stayed forever :)
We had a fantastic 4 day break at the beginning of July. The villa was lovely, very traditional with comfy beds and a very powerful modern shower. The property owners were flexible and accommodating. We enjoyed relaxing by the pool with its fantastic views. Location wise, we felt very much in the countryside but with only a 15 minute drive to Palma. We enjoyed it so much we are returning in September!
