Mallorca: The Island with the Luxury Estates
Country estates for sale on Mallorca are obviously always to be found in their own private and privileged locations, in their own world apart from the busy tourist areas. By just driving around the island it is really amazing what one comes across and discovers! These exclusive estates are positioned within their extensive land and are thereby hidden from the eye. Amazing for example what is situated within the stunning Serra de Tramuntana Mountain range which has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

One of these jaw-dropping country estates for sale located there in Mallorca is certainly lovely Son Valentí, a sea view jewel on the west coast with its own direct access to the Med. from its vast, terraced land. What more does a well-heeled millionaire really need! True, the mansion may need a fair amount of TLC but once a renovation has been done to the exact whims and wishes of its new owner, this jewel will offer 17 bedrooms and numerous receptions rooms. It will become one of the most spectacular properties on the island, it also has the permission to build a 219m2 pool and even disposes of a hotel license. The good news is that the roof of each building has already been completely renewed installing wooden beams and insulation.
The country estate for sale, Son Valentí, is located between the villages Esporles and Banyalbufar and is accessed via a private drive off the Palma to Banyalbufar road. It is about 20 kms away from Palma and it is approximately 30 minutes away from the airport. It offers open views to the sea from almost everywhere on the estate, the views are simply stunning. The new owner even gets the original defence watch tower from where the whole surroundings are overlooked and an ancient olive mill or “Tafona” as it is called.
Pollença’s Luxury Estate
The terminology “finca” is being used for everything that is in the countryside, nowadays, all country properties, no matter how big or small, are “fincas” although the original meaning is simply “land”! There is a fair amount of country estates for sale in the Pollença area and one is the vast Son Muntanya estate.
Reference number: POL52551
Price: 8,500,000 Euros
Approximately 3,6 million (!) square metres of land belong to this amazing property, which is accessed by its own private, idyllic country lane off the Pollensa to Lluc road. The scenery absolutely merits the drive, it is the best Mallorca has to offer – with the sea gleaming in the far distance. With luck, on some days providing the view is clear, the neighbouring island Menorca can be seen on the horizon. Part of the mountain, Puig Tomir, also belongs to the estate which is self-contained in as much as 2 freshwater springs and fountains provide it with more than ample water. A lovely orchard thrives here and there could be the possibility of starting a vineyard, as the earth is so fertile, and the climate would be ideal. In fact, the famous Mortitx vineyard is not far off. So, the future owner will certainly be kept busy on the Son Muntanya estate.
The estate is about halfway between Pollensa town and the famous monastery Lluc. It must be one of the most well conserved, 15th century Mallorcan properties for sale on the island. It is said to date back to the 15th century, but some believe that it was originally built by the Arabs around the 13th century.
The estate has various buildings, some have been renovated others not, the main building, for example, has already been reformed and is in immaculate condition, it somehow has managed to preserve memories of the way people used to live long ago. Amongst the other buildings, there is also a ruin set slightly apart from the main house that could become a fair-sized guest house, once reformed. This Mallorcan estate for sale is a true witness of island history and here, we can see how things used to work with hardly any complication and worries, simply by being supported by family and friends.
