Son Grúa Agrotourism, in the beautiful Pollensa in the north of Mallorca, stands as a 267-hectare estate in the majestic Sierra de Tramuntana, honored as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2011. This architectural treasure, located at the entrance of Vall d’en March, at the foot of the imposing Puig Tomir, is just 5 km from the charming town of Pollensa and 12 km from the idyllic Port de Pollensa. After its inauguration in July 2020, its next opening is expected on March 15, 2024.
Among the highlights of Son Grúa is its exquisite garden, designed in 1918 by a great-uncle of the current owner and the renowned Spanish painter Anglada Camarasa. This oasis of over 12,000 m2 offers serene corners conducive to reading and relaxation. Evenings in this magical garden are a unique experience, whether under the light of a full moon illuminating the valley or contemplating a starry sky on moonless nights.
The rooms, meticulously renovated with high-quality materials, are decorated with a harmonious blend of classic and modern furniture. From them, guests can enjoy charming views of the garden, the pool, or the majestic mountains. The service provided is warm, family-like, and personalized, ensuring a pleasant stay in this agrotouristic refuge.
Son Grúa presents itself as a haven of peace and tranquility. Its interior spaces include spacious lounges with stoves and fireplaces, while the common areas open onto the charming central paved “clastra,” typical of Mallorca. The lush garden invites you to explore numerous paths with strategically placed benches to contemplate silent sunrises and radiant sunsets, accompanied by the murmur of a flock of sheep or the song of birds. For the more active, exclusive small excursions are offered within the estate, where they will be the only hikers.
The rich history of the property dates back to the Arab era when it was a farmhouse, and remnants such as the aqueduct and channels used for irrigation can still be admired. Since the Christian conquest of Mallorca, the estate has passed through various Mallorcan hands and, since the 19th century, has been owned by the distinguished Villalonga family.
The estate’s own orchard is a gem that cultivates tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, zucchinis, pumpkins, and a variety of fruit trees, such as oranges, mandarins, lemon trees, pears, figs, and pomegranates. The fresh products from this fertile land are used to prepare delicious menus offered to guests, adding a touch of authenticity to the culinary experience at Son Grúa.
