A curved and windy country lane leads you to Villa Baranda, a four-bedroom sanctuary of a home nestled at the foothills of the UNESCO World Heritage Tramuntana Mountains close to the quaint villages of Santa Maria and Alaro. The glow of its pink putty coloured walls, majestic arched windows and perfectly pristine grounds give it the appearance of an ancient Tuscan stately home; yet the beauty in Baranda is that it has been designed with reverence for the ancient aesthetics of a finca yet with a modern and contemporary spec making it the perfect summer bolthole for you and your family.

Inside the same homage to the past is played out beautifully via wooden beams and stone floors as well as the elegant interiors that cast a light and bright regency feel with sumptuous sofas, fabrics, antiques all with a restrained touch of opulence. The fully equipped kitchen has all the mod cons including that super essential wake me up before you go go Nespresso machine and beautiful Villeroy and Boch tableware for dinner parties that last beyond the midnight hours.
Steal away to the office for those last-minute emails or even that book you have been wanting to write before you surrender fully to your time at Baranda.
Each of the four bedrooms is en-suite and offers panoramic views that by night feel like a little lullaby of stars rocking you gently to sleep.
Outside tall cypress trees flank the vast 3 acres of grounds and lush lawns entice you to walk bare feet, the soft sponginess seducing you to let go of what you no longer need. For more tranquil moments take a seat on the many terraces and listen to the sounds of water flowing from the water features and pond. To reach a high, head to the Mirador and gaze at the splendour of distant coastal mountain ranges as well as the deep deliciousness of the countryside.
Let your little ones splish splash in the long swimming pool as you watch close by and feed their hunger once they emerge from the water with a plate full of BBQ’d delights.
While all this feels super secluded when it’s time to mix things, Baranda is centrally located and the local villages can provide a happy day of pottering while Palma is only 30 mins away. There are a plethora of sunny sporting activities such as golf courses and tennis courts nearby. One of our favourite beaches, Es Trenc maybe 45 mins away but what awaits you is soft white sand and brilliant turquoise waters that lure you into believing you might just be in the Caribbean.
With so much so close by and such achingly cool grounds and that grand interior it’s easy to see why you would choose Baranda as your island home.
