Mallorca is a paradise for those seeking a break from the stresses of city living. Either surrounded by orange groves, overlooking valleys, or built along pine covered coastlines, the island's many lovingly restored farmhouses invite you to pause and take stock.
Whatever corner of the island you're drawn towards, there's a rural idyll where you can reconnect with nature and restore depleted energy levels.
Unwind with Wine in Central Mallorca - Es Quatre Cantons Agroturismo Hotel
With its cats, dogs, chickens, horses and even an ostrich, Es Quatre Cantons Agroturismo Hotel might just fit your idea of a rural escape. Care for the environment is a priority and they use solar energy, residual water in their garden and organic products in both the bathrooms and on their menu. The beautifully restored 19th century finca has 14 rooms, including four suites, with plenty of space for families. It is located just 2.6km away from the historic town centre of Binissalem, which is the centre of wine production in Mallorca. We recommend sampling the local wines at nearby wineries, such as Celler Albaflor, Vins Nadal or Jose Ferrer. Cycling, hiking and horse riding are all possibilities from here.
Wellbeing in the West - C'an Verdera Hotel
