Richard Branson’s vast estate on the island’s northwest coast covers 680 acres of stunning landscape and includes two villa.
Last December, Richard Branson announced he has bought back an iconic estate in Majorca he sold 13 years ago. Now, the villas Sa Punta De S’Aguila and Sa Terra Rotja situated on the Son Bunyola Estate are officially included in Sir Richard Branson’s privately owned collection of award-winning luxury hotels and retreats.
Besided vines, citrus fruit trees, almond and olive trees, Son Bunyola Estate includes a historic Finca building dating back to the 1800’s. The luxury estate, with its own gated entrance, is over 700 acres and is located in between Esporles and Banyalbufar on the Northwest coast of Mallorca. The area is dominated by the Tramuntana mountain range with its breath-taking scenery, and is home to some of the most historical and picturesque towns on the island.
Richard Branson’s guests can take a dip in the private heated pool just steps away from the villa or play a spot of tennis on the nearby court (racquets and balls provided).
