About the Owner

I have loved Son Torrella all my life as originally it belonged to my Grandmother who bought it in 1932. I have such happy memories of childhood holidays there and now have been able to see my own children enjoying the same. My husband and I also often go there by ourselves or with friends and love sitting on the gallery, looking down on the courtyard, hearing only the fountain or the bells of the sheep amongst the almond and olive trees of our small farm – heaven! We also spend a lot of time in the garden, which my grandmother designed, planting, pruning and planning – or sitting in the shade of the terrace doing nothing at all!

Location

From the Owner

Situated near the foothills of the Sierra de Tramuntana, Son Torrella has escaped the urban development of so much of the coastal areas of Majorca. The house is a haven of peace and quiet in very rural surroundings and its grounds lead right up to the hills of the mountain range. The more adventurous guests can discover the waterfall in the cave at the top of the valley or climb up to the mountain village of Alaro where they will find a cold beer or a delicious lunch. Santa Maria with its shops, bars, local restaurants and famous Sunday market is only five minutes drive away – it also has frequent direct train services to Palma’s city centre and is only half an hour from Palma airport.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

The Island is famous for its beaches - large sandy ones popular with families and secluded hidden bays within easy driving distance (approx 40 mins) of the house.

Travel:

Palma International Airport is 30 minutes drive. Car Hire is essential and details of a recommended firm with competitive prices is available.

Distances:

Santa Maria, a market town with excellent local facilities, is 2km away. Palma is 12km and is just a 20 minute journey on the local train from Santa Maria. The beautiful, unspoilt western coast is a short drive over the hills.

Further Details:

There are good restaurants, bars and cafes in the local area - details available. Binasalem (5 km away) is an established wine growing area and Santa Maria has its own vinyard and bodega to visit. There are a couple of supermarkets, banks, a chemist, florist, post office and other local shops. There is a large market every Sunday with good local produce plus much more.

Alcampo, a large hypermarket which sells everything is 10 mins towards Palma.

Facilities

From the Owner

Son Torrella has a particularly peaceful atmosphere and it seems to appeal to all ages as it is not just a holiday villa, it is a real home. There are so many places to sit and relax – inside and out – and there is so much space to enjoy whether just sitting on the gallery or lounging by the pool and its pavilion which is perfect for al fresco lunches and barbecues. My loyal guests return year after year and say that apart from the unique beauty of the place, they also love the fact that breakfast appears and the rooms are cleaned and tidied for them as this makes it feel like a real holiday.
