Nearby to the south east’s pretty coves and nature parks is the romantic retreat of Sa Galera.
Surrounded by undulating countryside, with over 5,000 almond trees and landscaped gardens, the 13th century manor house has been tastefully renovated into a luxury hideaway. Original curved ceilings and other architectural features have been preserved to compliment the hotel’s style and classic furnishings. The romantic, charming bedrooms are individually and comfortably furnished with four poster beds and pale shades of Mallorcan décor.
The pool and pretty gardens offer plenty of space for relaxing guests, whilst there’s a sauna, solarium and massages on offer for those really wanting to unwind. Sa Galera is a great place for horse lovers as the estate is home to one of the best Pure Mallorcan horse breeding centres. The hotel is happy to organise horse-riding and trekking activities and golf enthusiasts are catered for at the nearby Vall D’Or golf course (guests are offered discounted rates).
Meals can be enjoyed in the wood beamed dining room or on the pretty paved terrace. The refined hotel restaurant S’Espigo, provides a buffet style breakfast, whilst in the evening the chef prepares a la carte Mediterranean dishes from fresh local produce. The surrounding area also offers a wealth of good restaurants, in the nearby charming village of Ca’s Concos and towns of Santanyi and Felanitx. Whilst for harbour views over dinner, head to quaint Porto Petro or the more glitzy Cala D’Or.
