Introducing a Majorcan Gem, Son Net
October 31, 2022 by Perrie Hartz
Tucked away on one of Spain’s most breathtaking Balearic Islands, Son Net is a peaceful, bucolic retreat that is perched dramatically on the crest of a hill overlooking the village of Puigpunyent. Situated in Mallorca’s northwest region, this gorgeous property boasts a magnificent backdrop of the Tramuntana mountains, an UNESCO world heritage site, with lush pine forests that provide a particularly spectacular setting, conveniently located less than 30 minutes by car from the city of Palma.
Mallorca is all about connecting back to your roots and reconnecting with your loved ones, family, and friends. Reopening in Spring 2023, this exquisite and sophisticated art-filled private estate, with historic roots dating back to the 17th century, is lovingly restored by the masterminds of Finca Cortesin, a renowned Andalusian property located near Marbella, Spain. Son Net is designed to feel like your Majorcan home.
The ivy-covered estate, which bares the original Majorcan owner’s family crest above the front entrance, is comprised of 57,000 square meters of landscape, a private Malvasia grape vineyard, a farm and vegetable garden, centuries-old olive trees, a chapel, and a pool flanked by chic, shaded cabanas. There is also a second, adults-only pool perfectly secluded behind beautiful fountains that is both private and romantic.
The interior of Son Net is famous for its classical design, and many of the historic estate’s original features—including the rustic ceiling beams, stone floors, large antique fireplaces, private family chapel and 17th Century interior courtyard—have been lovingly preserved. The hotel also boasts a seriously impressive private art collection that features works by renowned artists such as David Hockey and Marc Chagall.
With just 31 rooms and suites, Son Net juxtaposes elegant, palatial architecture with tastefully transformed interiors that are relaxed, romantic, and intimate, oﬀering sweeping views of the Tramuntana mountains, orchards, and lush citrus-scented Mediterranean gardens.
Renowned Spanish interior designer, Lorenzo Castillo, re-imagined each space with respect and thoughtfulness, keeping many of the estate’s original 17th century interior elements, while infusing stunning Majorcan inspired colorful tapestries, furniture, and luxurious marble, plus all the latest technology and modern comforts of a five-star resort.
The rooms and suites are either located in the original estate or there are four Pool Suites located in a newer wing just a short 5-minute stroll away, all offer beautiful views from the comfort of a luxe living area, private outdoor patio, terrace, or garden—some even including their very own pool.
Idea for families, the two-bedroom Pool Cottage House offers a private garden and swimming pool and an interconnected cosy living area.
Son Net ́s new gourmet restaurant oﬀers authentic Majorcan cuisine and produce sourced directly from the property’s on-site vegetable garden, along with other products also sourced locally on-island.
