When travelling across the 1000m2 hectare property where a Manor House has stood for centuries, the woods and plains beckon to explore. Sitting just outside of Inca on the old road to Llubi, woods dominate on one side, and on the other, the imposing Tramuntana mountain range.
This 6-bedroom finca-style holiday home/villa is located on a smaller part of the estate, overlooking the mountains and showcasing Mediterranean-styled interiors, beautifully appointed to allow holidaymakers to experience another type of luxury – the luxury of space, tranquillity, and beautiful natural elements that bring people together.
Heading along the long driveway that leads to the holiday home uncovers a well that is the focal point of the entrance. Park under a carob tree and enter the home through large glass doors into an inviting arrival hall. From here the living spaces are directly in front, the first guest room is on the left, and the kitchen is on the right. Beyond the living room is the outside terrace that is split into two areas – one for dining and the other for relaxing. From the terrace, you will see a larger building on the right, ideal for yoga retreats, events, or simply cycle storage. Plans are underway for a swimming pool, and there is a lovely organic garden to the left of the house with a seating area made of large tree logs, perfect to enjoy a shaded moment and admire the vegetables grown on the farm.
Up the stairs are 5 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and a living area with a lounge setting ideal for friends or family to gather to read or relax. Each of the bedrooms has its own unique colour palette, in the varying natural tones of Mallorca. Every detail was thought through to ensure that nothing went unnoticed.
A family home for years, Son Seriol now allows others to share holidays in Mallorca where memories can be created and remembered for a lifetime.
ABOUT THE AREA
Inca has a long history of settlement. Traditionally it was home to Talaiot settlements, which were inhabited when the Romans occupied the island. During the Islamic period, the town was known as ‘Inkán’. The surrounding land is particularly fertile, and home to lots of large orchards and groves. Inca is best known in Mallorca for being the leather capital of the island. This was reinforced when in 1871 a native of Inca, Antonia Fluxa, opened the first shoe-making factory on the island. Camper is still going strong today, their headquarters are in Inca and their factory outlet attracts lots of shoppers. In recent years Inca has benefitted from large-scale renovation projects. While the traditional buildings and squares still hold the same appeal, many of the surrounding roads have also been pedestrianised.
Inca’s biggest single attraction is its weekly market, which is held every Thursday. It’s one of the biggest on the island and fills many of the streets in the centre of town. While it’s predominantly known as a leather market, you will discover a wide variety of choice while exploring the stalls.
The area of Inca neighbours towns of Llubi and Buger which is a small town that produces spices and heaps of agricultural produce. It’s also famous for its very hip restaurant offers that have produced (2) 1 star Michelin restaurants on the same street. This is also cycling country for those loving to explore on two wheels as they meander through the country fields and short hills for a day in the wind and sun whilst exploring Mallorca’s back country.
