Wind turbines line your way to the salt fields of Llevant where you see the pink-white shimmering salt lakes. Before you reach your accommodation, you’ll find the white sandy beach ‘Es Trenc’.

Nowhere in the world is there so many windmills in one small area as on Mallorca. In the past they were an important part of agriculture on the island. Their function was either to grind grain or to pump water into the fields. On today’s stage, you will pass some very beautiful examples.

Mediterranean details and offers maximum comfort. It is located right on the beautifully landscaped promenade in the centre of the former fishing village. The open plan restaurant offers excellent food and stunning views of the sea.
The historic country house, about 5km outside of Porreres, was carefully restored only a few years ago. An oasis of peace and relaxation was created with great attention to detail, while retaining the traditional character. The excellent restaurant is housed in the former wine cellar, where traditional Mallorcan cuisine receives a new interpretation. The classically styled rooms ensure a pleasant stay.
