An introduction to Finca Can S’Horta

What is the story behind Finca Can S’Horta, what was your inspiration to create it?

Coming from a construction and architectural background during the lockdowns in the pandemic, as a family our longing started to find a project outside of Berlin. To create something a little more fun and emotional, a hybrid between business and pleasure. Back in the 1980s and 90s, my family owned a small cottage on the other side of the island on the west coast in the beautiful Tramuntana Mountains. My parents had even relocated there for a while and consequently, my brother and I started primary school in Deià. Therefore, Mallorca did hit close to home, and it didn’t take long, before we circled in on the island for our family project.

Although we didn’t know the southeast of Mallorca at all, we soon stumbled upon this building, which had great bones, beautiful views, and a nice atmosphere. I think it had been passed over by potential buyers as it was “dead” inside — the previous owner had removed most of its charm by over-renovating it.

So our task – we felt – was to recreate the old. It was a lot of fun! We toured the island and checked out old fincas to see the materials that were used. Coming from an architectural background, we tried to carry that over with a fresh and modern feel. My father is an architect by trade and helped us creatively, but we had a local architect who assisted with permits and finding tradespeople.

How would you describe the atmosphere and the interior design of Finca Can S’Horta?

It’s an oasis. After leaving the beautiful port town of Portoclom, you take a turn into what is a largely forgotten valley. It has always been a vegetable farming area and the village in which we are located, S’Horta, means “vegetable garden”. I think you don’t expect this scenery so close to great touristic infrastructure including a golf course and various shopping and dining facilities. While the property is elevated, it doesn’t have the classic sea view that you expect in Mallorca. It’s more of a country, rustic, almost Tuscan feel.

In terms of the interior design, you recognise you are in an old finca but there is a feeling of lightness and a modern flavour to it. It’s a good blend of old and new.

To you personally, what is so special about Finca Can S’Horta?

For me, it’s the views. We are located up a hill and have neighbours, but they aren’t super close and you don’t see them. So you feel as though you are on a mountain all on your own while having the security of people close by. We also get the best sunsets I have seen on the island — I love the late afternoon/early evening.

But for my mother and most people visiting it is the garden, it is very old and consists of some twenty plus palm trees, cacti of various species and cypress and citrus trees. It is a very old garden which must have been started decades ago. I think Finca Can S’Horta is special because it feels as though you are in the middle of nowhere, but in fact, you’re just seven minutes from a beautiful beach, Cala sa Nau. Six minutes away is a big shopping mall. There are lots of nice fincas in Mallorca but often, they are very remote.

Finca Can S’Horta rooms & rates

The finca comprises four houses built at different periods. So the property has evolved over time, with the most recent additions around 60 or 70 years old. You enter through what was once a connector between two houses and now has a staircase and a lobby. To your right is a big kitchen with an island bench, plus an adjacent lounge it what was once a separate house. Although it is on another level, it is connected to the kitchen and the space has a good tectonic feel. 

We retained the height differences in this open-plan living area to create separation but we removed all of the walls so there is a feeling of connectivity. It has a lofty vibe to it. There are little niches where you can feel secluded due to the height differences. But when you stand up, for example, you can see someone cooking nearby.

There are also six ensuite bedrooms, five of which are on the first floor. All of the bedrooms are very spacious and most have their own living area. In total, there are three staircases, which reflect the history of the property. The first staircase accesses two bedrooms from the main living area. Another staircase on the right-hand side of the building connects to the master bedroom (which has a large terrace and beautiful valley views) and another bedroom with a separate living area. 

To the left of the main house is a casita (guest house) with a kitchenette, a living room and an upstairs bathroom with an outdoor shower. It also has a large terrace with garden views. Within the historic watchtower is our tower suite. This is the oldest part of the building and inspired the name of the property. Because of the design, it’s easy for guests to spend time together but also remove themselves to find their own space. 

Outside is a large patio with a dining and seating area featuring two massive couches. There’s plenty of space for large groups. Within our 8,000 square metres of outside space are a boule court, a sauna and a satellite outdoor kitchen, as well as a 7x15-metre swimming pool. We are also creating an orchard with orange and lemon trees. The property is largely self-sufficient with solar panels for electricity.

You can rent boats in Cala d’Or and in Portocolom, there is CrossFit and a couple of dive centres. Golfing is just around the corner. While we don’t have the high mountains of the west, we are located in a mountain range with lots of hiking routes. The area is also popular with cyclists.

The location of Finca Can S’Horta

Mallorca is quite large — it takes maybe 1.5 hours to drive across the island. We are located in the southeastern part, which doesn’t have a lot of hotels and is more laid back compared to the west. Lots of people say this area has the best beaches on the island, many of which are sandy and easy to access, without requiring a crazy hike! 

Cala sa Nau is the closest one to us and has a restaurant that opens in late April and closes at the end of October. At most of the beaches in the area, you can get a drink and eat high-quality fish. Cala Mondrago is another well-known beach and is around 15 minutes away. Castell de Santueri is 10 minutes from Finca Can S’Horta and the Vall d’Or Golf Course is just four minutes by car. 

There are lots of well-known restaurants nearby. Bona Taula is one of the most famous and has a big indoor fireplace — it’s beloved by locals. Restaurant Viena — Cas Concos is eight minutes away. Portocolom is the biggest natural harbour on the island and home to a charming fishermen’s village that’s not yet overrun with tourists.

Palma is around 50 minutes’ drive from Finca Can S’Horta and the airport is 40 minutes away. The island’s east coast is easily accessible — there is a nice coastal drive — with the northeastern tip accessible in around 35 minutes.

When is the best time to visit Mallorca?

For me, the best time to be in Mallorca is March as it’s not too busy. But that comes with the cost of some restaurants being closed. Most are open from April to October. But if you know where to go, it’s not a big deal as there are so many restaurants on the island. In spring, Mallorca is famed for its almond tree blossoms.

In summer, you can get the most out of the beaches and enjoy the pristine waters. This is my brother’s favourite time to be in Mallorca with his young family. When you’ve had enough of the beach, you can retreat to the pool and enjoy long nights barbecuing on the terrace.
