Set in 130 hectares of beautifully maintained gardens, luxury Villa Son Serra is an opulent private estate with views of the sea and both the Tramuntana and Levante mountain ranges. The villa's just four kilometres from the sandy stretch of shore at Son Serra de Marina, and it's perfectly pitched for holidays where privacy, peace and quiet are top of the agenda.
Surveying the grounds from your bedroom's baroque-style balcony, you feel as if you're a character from a sixteenth-century novel, in which the protagonist is, of course, Son Serra. She's utterly unreal. You booked her for a romantic retreat with some of your closest friends, and she's the kind of place which you could easily fall in love with again and again.
Enclosed within the dramatic mountains where tendrils of clouds roll along the level of the peak, the beauty on show here is undeniable. Sunlight saturates the valley in a golden glow, keeping the land abundant in bougainvilleas and jasmine which infuses the air with the scent of serenity.
You can hear the more active members of the group partaking in one of the activities on offer, their cheers echoing around the pin-drop quiet of the valley. You'll admit that you haven't yet been near the tennis court, football pitch or running track – holidays are for leisure of the most relaxing kind in your opinion – but it's going down a treat with the fitness fanatics.
You're more partial to floating on a lilo in the pool, cocktail in hand, followed by sun-drenched naps on the sunbeds lining its terrace. You're also considered one of the best cooks in the group and take great pleasure in serving up the finest dishes cooked in the dream kitchen, with its beautiful cornflower-blue wall tiles, rustic farm table, larder and impressive storage room with walls of handcrafted crockery on display. Â Alfresco candlelit dinners are devoured on one of the many breathtaking terraces. Afterwards, the musician amongst you likes to serenade the group with sultry jazz on the grand piano, creating the perfect soundtrack to complement this heavenly atmosphere.
Spacious and stylish, the mansion sleeps all of you comfortably in its eight large bedrooms, each with their own sitting area and ensuite bathroom. You're devising plans to redecorate your own bedroom back home in the same rustic manner, with that incredible four poster bed as the focal point. It would be hard to recreate these views though, unless you could find a way to relocate"¦
A friend disturbs your daydream by calling you downstairs – the taxis have arrived to whisk you away to your off-site date night at a hidden Son Serra de Marina beach bar. You're reluctant to leave the villa but remind yourself that sometimes it's good to take a short break from what you love, it only makes you appreciate it more.

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.
