The Balearic Islands are a serene setting on the Mediterranean — a picturesque vacation spot for the luxury traveler amidst salty sea breezes and shady olive groves. Abercrombie and Kent’s villas on the island of Majorca offer an experience like no other amidst rolling hills, seaside getaways, and sprawling grounds for their Majorca Villa selection.
A&K Villas has a portfolio of unique homes in France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, The Caribbean, Great Britain, and a number of Ski Chalets throughout the globe. Three of A&K Villas Spanish properties represent a wide variety of styles and luxury travel options while on the island of Majorca. From Villa El Sueño, a more classic villa option, to the ultra modern Villa C’Awanui, there is something for everyone in the diverse portfolio offered by A&K. Situated near towns, in the middle of the countryside, or next door to vineyards and spa experiences, the villas all have a unique character and offer supreme opulence while on the Spanish islands.
History is seeped deep into the fabric of Majorca. Roman walls still stand strong and gigantic olive presses are found now motionless in many of the buildings paying homage to the previous inhabitants and the lifeblood of the island olive oil. Majorcan residents are friendly and relaxed, a three-hour coffee of the square or a private tour of an exclusive winery are definitely on the list of things to do and see; all with a smile and a "manaña" outlook. Mallorquin is a dialect of Catalan that is spoken on the island as a proud part of cultural heritage with German and English also prominent languages in many of the restaurants, vineyards, and vacation spots.
Capitol city Palma is a fantastic surprise on the island, a metropolitan feel with high-end shopping, a cathedral that took over 300 hundred years to build with artistic touches by renowned artist Gaudi, and hidden gems of fine dining, shopping treasures, and high-end art galleries. Homes built in the 1700s sit beside modern houses;
central courtyards with water wells and stone arches add an undeniable character to the city. The Cathedral of Santa Maria of Palma was built over Roman walls, a mosque, and sits atop a hillside overlooking the sea. A spectacular day trip or a centralized theme to a visit on Majorca, Palma is an easy focal point to any of the villa stays.
A&K's Villa El Sueño is situated outside the quaint and sleepy town of Arta. Built on a six-acre plot, the traditional villa enjoys its own vegetable garden, pool, and stunning grounds. El Sueño is suited for families looking to escape it all. Sleeping nine in the five well-appointed bedrooms, the master suite has a walk-out balcony overlooking the rolling hills and lush landscape, while a central courtyard with bubbling fountain is a relaxing respite after a warm Majorcan day.
A&K Villas also arranges for guests’ wishes, whether that be yoga on the veranda, a personal chef, or guided tours of the nearby cities, such as Arta or Pollenca. A day by the pool sipping local wines under the swaying branches of olive trees lets the mind melt away for a private vacation retreat.
For guests looking for a more adult-oriented luxury retreat, Casa Bellavista is a jewel on the island. Situated on the other side of Arta, the chic four-bedroom villa has stunning views of the surrounding area, both from the floor-to-ceiling picture window from the main dining area, to the impressive infinity pool that overlooks the valley.
Modern furniture, in-floor tubs in both of the master suites, and an outdoor dining space flow seamlessly around the central courtyard. Rooftop terrace and poolside vistas make for a striking luxury property. Sleeping eight, Casa Bellavista is a playground for visitors to the island with fantastic taste in art, architecture, and all things luxury.
Ultra-modern and elegant, C’Awanui actually pays homage to the New Zealand roots of the owners. This main-floor floorplan is perfect for small families or couples looking for a retreat that still affords the easy-access location near Pollensa, Cala de St Vincenc beach, and close by Son Brull boutique hotel, perfect for a spa treatment or afternoon wine tasting.
Overlooking one of the 28 island golf courses, the pool terrace seamlessly melds into the house, with beautiful kitchen and outdoor eating area, foodies can enjoy a bottle of Son Brull vineyard wine while A&K can arrange for a private chef to cook to your every whim. With a full outdoor kitchen as well, the lavender lined avenue permeates the air for an exquisite Majorcan experience.
