Guests will be able to explore with us the mountains of Sierra de Tramuntana, an enriching protected mountain range, which will serve as our main inspiration for this trip, along with the processes of farming wheat, olive, and grapes, and the very ancient traditions from makers across the island ranging from passionate winemakers, to olive oil artisans and knowledgeable bakers. 

The experiences that will make this journey magical and unique, will focus on discovering the culture of the Mediterranean. An array of activities, workshops, and excursions will set the tone for our journey which will be centered on the enchanting Mediterranean way of life.

This Espanolita retreat will be hosted in a dreamy privately owned estate, built over olive tree groves. Son Rullán is a quiet rustic oasis hidden in the heart of the Tramuntana mountains, close to the beautiful town of Valldemossa, and from which guests can admire the gorgeous Mediterranean sea view, or swim in the pool. The house and gardens are full of enchanting corners ideal for meditation and reading. From there we will set off to our different activities, site visits, and workshops.

We will take excursions to a village farmers markets where we will source ingredients for our cooked meals, using the most colorful seasonal produce, we will sip wine and enjoy the pace of a wood burning oven. We will walk through olive tree groves, off the beaten path, and learn the processes of ancient oil mills, while tasting the most delicious varieties. We will discover old towns and enchanting villages, making this experience utterly unique.

Activities will include one day at sea on an antique vessel, where we will prepare a mouth-watering lunch and discover local coves and beaches. We will also visit tapas bars and other restaurants in the city of Palma, and get a chance to do some shopping.

We will learn wood carving from a local artist, and indulge in cooking sessions and wine tastings. All the while, we will be examining local cuisine through celebratory patio dinners and gatherings under the stars, and even a live music farewell evening where we will be able to meet some local creatives. We will do a wine tasting in the vineyards while we slowly cook rice on an open fire, and get to see the sunset by the sea from one of the most magical viewpoints on the island.
