In this tranquil bedroom, a sea of calming neutrals and earthy, natural textures, you may choose to sleep with the windows and balcony doors open, allowing the mountain air to gently roll in as the sun quietly draws up the dawn. Waking early, in harmony with the land around you, is all the sweeter for knowing you’ve the luxury of time for a siesta or two if the mood takes you.
Your dressing room is an elaborate frame to a beautiful garden view that draws the eye like a lightbox, casting soft shadows on immaculate shutters and shelves. Choosing what to wear is a joy when your wardrobe is neatly presented around you and there’s not a cloud in the sky.
Once dressed, return to your bedroom balcony to luxuriate in just gazing out and letting your mind roam, as ideas of what you might do with the day come and go at will. Around you, natural variations in the villa’s blocks of marine sandstone - shades of terracotta, ochre and biscuit, contrast with the soft green of the painted shutters that flank each opening.
But first - coffee. The barrelled ceiling, fine microcement floor and continued natural palette allow a serene energy to flow through this wonderful, open plan lounge. Enjoy pottering to and fro, indoors to out and back again, cup in hand. Underfloor heating, a plasma screen and fireplace all enhance ease and join the understated decor in waiting discreetly while the sunshine and greenery outside do the talking.
Wander the gardens, enjoying time to sit here and there, among sprays of pink and white flowers, under olive branches, and beneath trees of all kinds - including almond, lemon and pomegranate. Rising up beyond the villa’s grounds, the ancient, rocky forms of the Serra de Tramuntana dominate, peacefully reigning the land at their feet.Today, be the only one to break the perfect mirror of the pool’s surface - glide through its silent waters, before drying on the warmth of a cushioned, wooden sunlounger, beneath a cotton parasol. Perhaps, now’s the time for that siesta.
Soak in the heat of a radiant copper slipper bath - the shining centerpiece of this subtle bathroom. Spend as long as you like immersed in the foam, before wrapping yourself up in the softest of clothes and reaching for a book.
Drop into a deep, white armchair with a matching cube to hold the weight of your feet. Through the full height, glass archways of this dual-aspect living room, the dusk silhouettes jagged succulents, full-bodied olive trees and needle-sharp cypresses, as well as the forested hills in the distance. Turn another page, knowing that this is an escape to paradise you can make again and again.
