Our retreat home is a stunning and traditionally Mallorquin luxury stately manor once belonged to the descendants of the Viscount of Bearn. For centuries the house, the surrounding estates, the family and the town prospered thanks to the high-quality vineyards and olive groves nestling in the mountainous terrain around Alaro.
The Manor House is located in Alaró is a small municipality in the district of Raiguer on Majorca, Spain in an unspoiled and peaceful village. Its central location allows us to easily get to beaches, mountains, and even to the capital Palma. The quaint and beautiful town square is just around the corner from the Manor. This is a place where you can fully immerse yourself in real local village life, wander through the picturesque winding streets and explore the many welcoming cafes and well-known restaurants and tapas bars.

Alaró is a small municipality in the district of Raiguer on Majorca, one of the Balearic Islands. Its central location allows us to easily get to beaches, mountains, and even to the capital Palma. It is an ideal location for a yoga retreat, hiking holiday, cycling holiday, a team building or coroprate holiday or any kind of outdoor group activity.
The ever-popular star of the Mediterranean, Mallorca has a sunny personality thanks to its ravishing beaches, azure views, remote mountains, and soulful hill towns. Fly to Palma de Mallorca (PMI) that is very easy to reach from all major European airports.
For Miró it was the pure Mediterranean light. For hikers and cyclists, it is the Serra de Tramuntana’s formidable limestone spires and bluffs. For others, it is as fleeting as the almond blossom snowing on meadows in spring, or the interior’s vineyards in their autumn mantle of gold. Wherever your journey takes you, Mallorca never fails to seduce. Cars conga along the coast in single file for views so enticing the resort postcards to resemble cheap imitations. Even among the tourist swarms of mid-August you can find pockets of silence – trek to hilltop monasteries, pedal through honey-stone villages, sit under a night sky and engrave Mallorca’s lyrical landscapes onto memory.
Return to Tradition
Mallorca’s culture took a back seat to its beaches for decades, but the tides are changing. Up and down the island, locals are embracing their roots and revamping the island’s old manor houses, country estates and long-abandoned
Mallorca tops Europe’s summer holiday charts for many reasons, but one ranks above all others: the island’s stunning coast. Beyond the built-up resorts, coves braid the island like a string of beads – each one a reminder of why the island’s beaches have never lost their appeal. Go west for cliff-sculpted drama and sapphire seas, or head north for hikes to pine-flecked bays. Scope out deserted coves in the east, or dive off bone-white beaches in the south. With a room overlooking the bright-blue sea, sundown beach strolls to the backbeat of cicadas and restaurants open to the stars, you’ll soon click into the laid-back groove of coastal living.
Eating out in Palma has never been more exciting, with chefs – inspired as much by their Mallorcan grandmothers as Mediterranean nouvelle cuisine – adding a pinch of creativity and spice to the city’s food scene. Inland, restaurants play up hale-and-hearty dishes, such as suckling pig spit-roast, to perfection, pairing them with locally grown wines. On the coast, bistros keep flavors clean, bright and simple, serving the catch of the day with big sea views.
