At the foothills of the Tramuntana mountains, Villa Can Begonia awaits you. An authentic Mallorcan finca, shrouded in the beauty of one of the island's most striking locations, here's a hideaway for those of you with more traditional tastes.
The scent of lavender blankets the air, as you walk the plant-lined path to Can Begonia's door. You're excited to see what lies inside if the exterior is anything to go by - traditional stone and wooden shutters, glinting in the midday sun, create an enchantingly traditional aura.
You push the door open and instantly feel at peace amongst its open-plan homeliness. Neutral walls, roomy high ceilings and painted wooden beams set the calming tone, whilst subtle yet sophisticated furniture is dotted throughout.
You can already picture cooking mouth-watering Mediterranean meals in the spacious and contemporary kitchen, and plan on waking before the others tomorrow to whisk up a romantic breakfast-for-two. The lounge is the ultimate relaxation area, decked out with entertainment features, such as a TV and music system, to keep the kids entertained. Although you have a feeling that they might spend most of their time holding tennis table tournaments.
Upstairs, you settle quickly into your master room, with its ensuite bathroom complete with luxury walk-in-shower and free-standing bathtub for those soothing after sun soaks. The Juliet balcony opens out into those breathtaking views, eclipsed by mountains and blue skies. Below, the tropical gardens, filled with palm trees, stretch out into a gorgeous, verdant landscape. And the pool glitters, beckoning you outside to become acquainted with its crystal-clear depths.
Secluded but central, the villa is perfectly poised for exploring the island. You can't wait for long treks through the mountainous region, and plan on making full use of the villa's bikes with trips to local Santa Maria, just five minutes away. It's home to one of the most bustling markets on the island and also at the heart of the wine district, so there's much sampling and boutique-hopping to be had.
But first, an unhurried day of getting to know Can Begonia is on the cards. First stop, the pool and a spot of sunbathing on its plush sunbeds. Followed by an early evening alfresco meal beneath the pergola. There's no need to rush anything here, the pace of life slows down to grant you a sense of endless time within its beautiful grounds.

There is something wonderfully comforting and indulgent about having somebody else take control of the kitchen. When that person is a talented chef with hands-on experience in high-end restaurants, you know you’re in for a mouth-watering treat. We handpick our villa partners for their beautiful properties, stand out service and their dedication to gastronomy. Here’s a taste of what you can expect when staying in one of our catered villas:
When you awake from your dreamy sleep you can rest assured that breakfast has been taken care of and awaits you. Freshly squeezed oranges and healthy fruit juices along with a selection of delicious teas and coffee are just the start. Yoghurts, crispy cereals, fresh fruits and a tempting display of fresh breads & delicate pastries complete the table. Your chef will also prepare a daily cooked hot option for you - how do you like your eggs? If creamy porridge with honey or simply toast hits the spot, just ask, it’s on the menu. With breakfast taken care of all you have to do is decide how to spend the day. A trip to a stunning beach or perhaps time relaxing by your own private pool – decisions, decisions! Life can be tough …….
Whether you’d prefer to have your chef prepare a wonderful spread at lunchtime or alternatively you’d like to dine al-fresco under the stars, the choice is yours. With an emphasis on using specially selected fresh local and seasonal ingredients you will be served a melt-in-the-mouth meal befitting of a Michelin starred restaurant. From sun soaked BBQ’s on the terrace to delicious locally inspired menus, your chef will be in touch with you personally before your arrival to discuss your preferences.
The villa provides house wines, beers, a drinks tray of two bottles of house spirits and mixers. Champagne is served with canapés on 6 nights of your stay.
The chef is happy to cater to specific dietary requirements. Just let us know about any special requests regarding dietary requirements such as gluten free options. Maybe you’re celebrating a birthday? A cake bedecked with candles can be arranged or maybe just favourite dishes, nothing is too much trouble, just ask. Maybe you’d like an earlier high tea for the youngest children? We will do our very best to ensure that your wishes are granted.
