When the car starts bordering the landscape of the Serra de Tramuntana, dozens of colours of the Mediterranean sea, bathed by the sun, catch your attention and make you feel distracted from the reality for a while. To your left, a beautiful mountain chain worth of being considered National Heritage.

You stop in front of a fence where two rocks show you have arrived to Son Bunyola, your home for the next few days. You move forward through the state’s path and unconsciously you roll down the car window to feel the perfume of the vineyards, citrus plantations and olive trees, that surround you, caressing you. Your sense of freedom and wellbeing is growing up exponentially.

Son Bunyola welcomes you with its Mallorcan charm. Its almost 800 years of age give it a presence that makes it the centerpiece in a spectacular environment.

While the staff helps you to take out the luggage from your car, your parents make themselves comfortable in the large living room, where the traditional furniture from the island contrasts with cutting-edge technology. It’s amazing to see their faces of happiness, to be able to enjoy these days with them and to celebrate together with your kids their golden anniversary.

A moment later, you hear the laughter of the children playing outside and making splashes at the salty swimming pool. You come closer to kiss them before leaving, with your partner, to play a tennis match. Some exercise will be good to whet the appetite before lunch time.

At your way back, the flavour of the barbecue cuts off your argument about who has won the match. A quick dip to refresh you, and everybody to the table! The patriarchs are waiting for you while sipping a glass of wine and tasting some local cold meat. The table starts being filled up with a selection of meat, fish and vegetables...A wide variety of unique flavours will make you lose your senses.

With the colors of the sunset, it is the perfect time to go, along with the rest of the family, to walk. After twenty minutes, you arrive to the beach. The kid’s face suddenly breaks into surprise when they see a beautiful sailboat anchoring in front of you. It’s the perfect moment to give them the surprise you’ve been waiting for, tomorrow you are taking them to sail!
