The view from this property high on the shoulder of a mountain in Mallorca’s South West is reputed to be one of the most beautiful and spectacular on the island. Protected from wind and weather from the north, the complex of three houses and seven studio apartments is attractively set on six of the original stone built stepped terraces near the summit of a ridge, so every window and patio has uninterrupted views across the pretty and ancient hilltop village of Galilea in the foreground, and on to the south coast and the sea.
The quality of light
The complex was originally designed by the famous architect, Pedro Otzoup, who was involved in the design of Puerto Banus. The hillside has long been a natural bird sanctuary and the properties were commissioned by a well-known Dutch artist and used for many years as a colony for painters. The quality of light is superb, and the panorama changes subtly throughout the day as the sun moves across the sky. At night the lights of the coast twinkle below, under a sky studded with stars.
Acquired in 2001 to serve as a companion property to their Townhouse Hotel located in the centre of the island, the 10 houses and studios were decorated simply in chic Mediterranean style, furnished with country antiques and equipped with deluxe comfort, with hand-made English beds and Ralph Lauren linens from the U.S.A. The complex was run as a full service hotel until 2009. After this the property was managed as self-catering holiday cottages.
The complex offers an investor or purchaser many options as the accommodation could be put to either touristic, short-term or permanent residential use. In a sublime and tranquil setting, as well as its most recent use as a charming location for holiday visitors and focused groups, such as wine and food tours, walking and hiking, painting and bird watching, it would provide a stunning and suitable location for any kind of spa, study, workshop, therapy or treatment centre or for any kind of spiritual or health-themed retreat purposes.
An existing Licence
For personal health reasons, a sale is now sought with the utmost urgency for this exceptional property before it becomes subject to liquidation. Time is of the essence if the current Licensing is to be renewed before it expires in June 2015. Those familiar with the hospitality industry in Spain will know that it is far easier to continue with an existing Licence than to apply for a new one.
Because of the time limitations, the owners are seeking only serious enquiries from a purchaser/s who can offer financial qualification as a predominantly cash buyer and who is willing to move forward promptly with the legal aspects of the sale. A very significant discount is offered on the official valuation of the property for swift completion of the purchase.
The official valuation is €2.2 million but all reasonable offers will be considered.
