MORE REASONS TO VISIT MALLORCA
WHILE HE’S NOT REVAMPING TRANSATLANTIC TRAVEL AND TINKERING WITH SPACE TOURISM, Sir Richard Branson manages to find time expanding his Virgin Limited Edition portfolio. The privately owned collection of hotels and retreats has now welcomed the newly opened villas Sa Punta De S’Aguila and Sa Terra Rotja, situated on the Son Bunyola Estate on the island’s northeast coast, which dates back to the 1800s. Surrounded by vines, citrus fruit trees, almond and olive trees, the 700-acre estate has a commanding view of the Tramuntana mountain range and is surrounding by some of the most picturesque towns in all of Mallorca. Translating to “Eagle’s Point”, Sa Punta de S’Aguila is a five-bedroom villa designed in the traditional Mallorcan style, with exposed beam ceilings and terracotta tiled floors. The ultra-private villa also has its own heated swimming pool, kitchen, living room and dining area, comfortably sleeping 10 adults in five en-suite bedrooms. Sa Terra Rotja (which translates as “Red Earth”) is a private four-bedroom villa situated near the edge of the estate and a short walk from a pebble beach. The slightly smaller option sleeps eight adults in four en-suite bedrooms, with ample terrace space for outdoor dining and epic sundowner sessions.
