Sir Richard Branson Launches Exclusive Villas on the Isle of Mallorca
Just traveling to the Spanish island of Mallorca is a magnificent way to vacation year round, with temperatures rarely dropping below 50 degrees Fahrenheit and the hottest month averaging a cool 76 degrees. But a getaway there reaches another level at Sir Richard Branson’s Son Bunyola, a 680-acre estate that’s part of a World Heritage site. Son Bunyola now offers two villas that provide plenty of space for all your friends and family: Sa Terra Rotja has four bedrooms and Sa Punta De S’Aguila tops that with five.
Branson of course has been involved in everything from the record business to travel, and these enterprises include resorts and hotels. His Son Bunyola features a gated entrance and faces the Tramuntana mountain range. The grounds contain olive and almond trees, and grape vines. At the center of the estate is a large historic manor house (called a “finch”) that dates from the 1800s. Currently unused, it offers yet another magnificent visual attraction for guests.
Literally translating as “red earth” from the local Mallorquín language, the four-bedroom Sa Terra Rotja is a 20-minute walk from a pebble beach. It boasts a private heated swimming pool and a terrace big enough for all guests to sunbathe on. A seven-night stays runs approximately $19,240 (depending on the currency exchange rate).
Dubbed “Eagle’s Point” for its location right above the coastline, Sa Punta de S’Aguila offers five bedrooms and panoramic sea and mountain views. Designed in the traditional Mallorcan style, it includes a private heated swimming pool, kitchen, living room, and dining area. A seven-night stay is priced at roughly $24,000.
