A warm welcome
Turn in from the quiet street through sleek electric gates and into the large garage, complete with parking for two cars as well as your two electric Vespas (so that you can easily zip to and from Alaró’s charming village square).
Enter the house either through the garage or through the large arched front door. Ahead of you is an impressive lobby with views into the courtyard garden and a lift and staircase to whisk you to the next floors. To the left is your luxurious and superbly appointed home office. Behind hidden doors is a separate bedroom and ensuite (ideal for staff accommodation but used here as a gym), laundry facilities, a plant room and storage.
The top floor is designed to make the most of the balcony views at both ends of the house, allowing you to orientate your living and eating according to the time of year while savouring every sunset.
Open plan, broken plan, separate: you choose how you want to live. Kitchen and dining spaces, a games room and vast sitting room – all designed to make the most of the views and landscape – are interconnected and offer flexible spaces for family times, easy entertaining and laid-back living.
The state-of-the-art kitchen and games room both open out onto the vast courtyard terrace, complete with an outdoor kitchen, and different seating areas, all integrated into the existing landscape. While island life takes place outside most of the year, the various interconnected indoor living areas, complete with fireplaces and underfloor heating, allow for comfort and space during those few colder months.
From the rear terrace you see the large pool’s infinity edge and olive groves beyond. Follow the steps through greenery to reach this pool terrace with its separate sun lounging area, multi-level pool and bar – the perfect place for family and friends to gather and enjoy Mallorca’s famous sunsets.
UNESCO National Park
Beyond the pool your very own piece of UNESCO National Park stretches as far as the eye can see – beautiful ancient woodland and olive groves waiting to be discovered.
On the first floor you’ll find three ensuite bedrooms as well as a stunning master bedroom complete with large bathroom and dressing room. In the landing discover a coffee station to provide your morning caffeine hit, while hidden storage and laundry facilities are brilliantly practical.
Nested in a scenic valley formed by twin foothills of the majestic UNESCO World Heritage listed Tramuntana mountains, Alaró is a village with a setting that is as splendid as it is secluded, all only a half hour drive from Palma airport. Its origins are rumoured to date as far back the island’s Moorish occupation – as part of an Arabian farmstead called Oloron – while its typically Mallorcan grid of narrow lanes lined with charming centuries-old architecture imbue the village with a rich sense of history. Despite its authentic sleepy village charm, Alaró has remained relatively immune to the levels of tourism many places on the island have been subjected to. Consequently, its popularity has grown amongst ex-pats looking to relocate somewhere to experience something of the ‘real Mallorca’. This has resulted in a healthy international community drawn by the opportunity to live in a secluded part of Mallorca’s rural countryside.
As well as the easy charm of its buzzing main square and exceptionally strollable streets, the village provides a fabulous base for those keen to enjoy nature, sitting as it does in a beautiful valley surrounded by National Park, and with its many cycling routes, shops and cafes attracts cyclists from all over the world.
While Alaró is known and loved for its sleepy and secluded character, it also plays host to numerous festivals – mostly over the summer months – when tranquillity is replaced with a riot of parades, dancing and music. The charming Saturday market sees local food producers selling their wares, and Es Verger, the lamb restaurant discovered by Rick Stein is the best known of its growing number of restaurants and bars.
